      Awww yeah, looks so ace in black.
      Should just put the surround in and mesh it up so you get better air flow

      Got some really bad Pitting this time around... could have been too cold out or maybe some of the glue from the wrap was left on not sure...


      So it was bath time!

      man, 500 miles down so I took out last night for a quick run.. Clutch is feeling great!

      I forgot to say earlier, I also did BFI's Stage I transmission mounts as well once the clutch was dropped out...

      I will get a vid up at some point

      I had APR's mount in and the car would rattle someting fierce on idle with the air-con on.
      Can you check if that happens with the BFI one?
      I assume BFI's is softer.


      Looking forward to the video.

      Mounts are great.. I don't feel any added vibration from the mounts..

      I did it with the new Clutch, so I'm 100% sure how much the mounts help, but my shifts feel great with the set up.

      So new clutch + BFI transmission mounts + Neuspeed Torque Arm Insert =

      Since my Lamin-x for my tail lights turned out badly I had the outer sheets just sitting around.

      lol

      Yea, I wanted something shocking done for when I pop the hood... and I have been wanting it painted for awhile now, I found a local street artist and told him to do whatever he wanted. I just didn't want it to say anything or have some theme its self.

      I know its totally different from the theme of the outside, but I'm digging it
