Brake mods

Little mods still make me happy.

The brake pads made it last week, but I didnt realize one of my calipers were warped so I ordered those last monday night.

Finally the Rotors and the Caliper paint made it...

I went with R1 concepts ceramics for the rear pads and the premium OEQ blanks for the back.

Fronts I ordered the Hawk HPS pads but then realized my rotors and pads have about 80% left up front so Im leaving them put for now.

either way my car has been up on jackstands for over a week.



cleaned all the calipers off with some brake cleaner.



Then, spent a few hours painting the calipers





More pics to come when I get everything put back together tomorrow.

Should match the blue of the engine bay wires/strut bar etc. and then Ill do an LED conversion inside and out that will accent the blue I just did the Calipers in.

It could, but mine are still in good shape and frankly, I was too lazy to pull the calipers to paint them cuz I didnt want to bleed them by myself... so no, I wasnt that motivated LOL... maybe when the front rotors and pads are shot I will do some stainless steel ones up front...

but frankly, I didnt plan very well, so my car has been up on stands for over a week, I dont want to delay putting it back together any longer.
