    i drove it
    Love really does hurt. I have a bruised right hand, a cut-infected left index finger and a cut-infected left forearm and sensitive fingers from the juices I used. You even put me in heart attack mode when you wouldnt let go of my tool, but you know what? I still have love for you, My Little Mazda3.

    You dirty minds,what were you thinking when you read this?

    Painted Calipers

    Actually done 3 weeks ago but I just got around to taking pics:

    Used G2 kit. Did each caliper separately, as I only had a floor jack (i.e. two day project). Worth the pain(t), though.

    Thanks for the compliment. I found that the G2 system was pretty user friendly, except for having to evenly divide the activator and paint to mix different batches. I did that very carefully. I didn't want the stuff drying up before I got to the last wheel. Also, taking your time to do a good job taping parts you don't want painted is also key. I got a couple tiny specs on the black part of the brake on the rear, but I was able to scrape it off quickly.

    I hope it holds up. I only did 2 coats on each caliper. So far, so good. I do have extra activator and paint in case I need to do some touch up work. However, there is a shelf life on the paint.

    This has been a work in progress but I finally have a panel complete, from laying the fiberglass to paint to install. The gauges are just for test fitting and not what I will actually install. I need to make a few minor adjustments still but tell me what you think, I'm considering doing this in carbon fiber as well. I will have extras for sale if anyone wants them...

    Replaced my stock Toyo Proxes with brand new Toyo Proxes 4's the other day when I had it in at the dealer and they told me my road vibration was my tires badly worn on the inside.

    They remind me a little of the old VW GTI gauges, which were mounted too low to really use. My feeling is that you'll never use them there because they will destract you too long from looking at the road.
    I'd mount them much higher as I did mine. On the dash or an "A" pillar mount.
    It's a bad picture as I wasn't focusing on the gauges when I ook it, but like this:


    Just my .02.

    If you're turbocharging your motor, this isn't the greatest place to mount gauges. I don't smoke and have no use for the ashtray so I decided I wanted to mount a set of gauges there. I'll only need to glance at them after each auto-x run and I only do a few track days a year so this is nice and clean. This panel was pretty popular on another forum but the guy who was making them stopped so I decided I would pick up where he left off.
    The center dash vent mount is my next project just to see what I can do.
