Brakes installed

got this set from Amazon, dad sent them to me for a suprise, needed them replaced anyways, good deal and they work great so far no complaints.







After I do the rears I will be sure to paint the calipers.
They're going to be gloss black.

So far so good, Got a few compliments from the guys at work, they seem to like the "race car" a lot more now. lol

They're also good brakes, but I need to be careful as they lock up under hard braking at low speeds, found that out when a kid came running across the road earlier.

Check the rotors once in a while for cracks. Cross drilled rotors crack with excessive heat.

also, I found a set of 4 starfish rims like my old ones..

Chick wants 175, and they have tires. Going today to check the condition, if theyre all curb rashed or the tires are trash I may not get them.. But the wife said if the tires were bad I should buy them and then save for tires.. so I dunno

Do it that's a good deal! As long as the rims aren't f'd up

bummer. Rims were pretty bad on my 02 v6. I plastidipped them and they look a lot better. Not a permanent fix, but should hold until its time to buy some new wheels.

One had a huge dent on the inside lip, wasnt gonna risk it, I dont mind sanding and painting some curb rash, but I dont feel comfortable beating a dent out of a lip, the tire didnt even hold air
