Hi Dan, thanks for the note! I don't think they make a dark grey anymore. They offer in light or medium grey. It's not a huge investment so I'm hoping the medium matches well.

Did you enjoy your car on the road this summer?

This was the first summer that I've had a chance to really enjoy my car. It's running like a champ. Next up for me will be to rebuild the transmission and install a new clutch. I'll post more about my clutch selection on another day.

Test fitted an ashtray gauge pod I bought from Jonathan on facebook. It's a temporary solution for the next couple years while I get some other things done. This winter I'm going to do a transmission rebuild and clutch upgrade. I've already bought all the components, but need to find time to remove the tranny. Also going to upgrade my brakes to the MB S500 Brembos I bought a couple years ago. I test fitted them this Christmas break and they fit (very narrowly). I'm hoping to prep them for painting over the next couple of weeks.

On a brake related note, can you disconnect your brake lines (b/c I have new ones) without emptying the entire brake fluid system? I'm wondering if there is a check valve on the connection in the tire well?

Getting my S500 brakes ready for paint. I've cleaned them up about as good as I can without bead blasting them. I bought a rebuild kit as well which I'll do first, then start painting. Looking forward to getting these installed. Part Source is having a sale on Brembo products so I'm going to snag myself a set of Brembo brake pads and I should be all set!

Gauges look great and I agree, this is much better than an a-pillar gauge pod.

I've been wanting to do that brake upgrade. Where did you get the calipers?
Ps- the last pic doesn't seem to be working. Maybe it is just me though

Hi Franco!

I bought the calipers on ebay back in the spring of 2015. I haven't had time to really start this project until recently. I ended up buying a rebuild kit for each caliper which was roughly $100 total ($50 each), so the calipers with rebuild were under $200. I'll buy some rotors from rock auto and some brembo brake pads from Part Source and a few other odds and ends and I'll be golden. It took me a couple tries to find something to remove the paint off of the calipers. The tool I liked best was the Paint and Rust Stripper by 3M. It's sold at Canadian Tire. I used two of the 3M tools to complete the job. I found the steel rotating wheels didn't do much other than they were better at getting into the nooks and crannies.

With the picture, thanks for saying something. I switched photo hosting aps from photobucket to google photo and the image would show for me, but that was b/c I was logged into my google account. As soon as I log out, the image didn't show for me either. Photobucket doesn't seem to work anymore for some reason. I'm now using Imgur which hopefully is working now. Let me know if you can't see it.

That paint stripper looks like it worked wonders!

I have passively been looking for a set of calipers for a while but the price has really shot up. I would have bought them sooner but they were not going to fit with the factor saw blades. That won't be an issue this year though haha

I forgot about imgur. I should sign up and update my build too.
