looks nice, just did something similar with my exhaust but kept the first resonator, used a magnaflow y pipe and 2.5 inch exhaust to Trust SP mufflers.

no real updates yet, just wondering if theres anyone in socal near arcadia who can help me drill the hole for uca clearance. My uca keeps hitting and if it hits a big bump my rear view mirror drops down a inch or so everytime. Getting annoying

So I threw on the front rims, but they needed a spacer to clear. I slapped on my 5mm but it still wouldnt clear and I didnt want to go past a 5mm for lack of spins on the lugnut. So I decided to call some buddies over and we grinded down my calipers on the area's that it was hitting so the wheel would clear.
Overall grinded about 3mm and it barely clears the wheel now, the most I can slide between the caliper and the spokes is a sheet of paper



I didnt want to have my caliper expose bare metal, looked incomplete. So I decided to paint my calipers.
Went to autozone and picked up a few things
Duplicolor metal specks (silver)
Plastikote Flexible spot filler and primer (grey)
Rustoleum Engine Enamel 500 degree high temp clear coat



Didnt take pics of each step, just pics of each spray
Heres the primer on



Heres a layer of the metal specks silver on



Finished, put the wheel back on



Upclose shot. When the flash hits the paint all the flakes show up



And this is where my baby sleeps at night

looks good, be careful with that grinding though, i know a couple who did that and ended up with pinhole leaks either immediately or down the line during a panic stop

Hopefully theres no damage done. I dont feel like i took off too much material, but I havent done any emergency braking yet. I'll test it and give it a shot to make sure they arent leaking
