    Dipped all day sunday 5-31-15 with @boarder140

    A ton of coats, probably like 10 between black and glossifier.











    I used all products from dipyourcar.com. Their brake dust cleaner is pretty fantastic stuff. All in all it was a tedious project but came out pretty good.

    Oh, and I did the whole process with them standing like that, I call it the "rolly polley" method. I used two wheel chocks, spaced them apart and rolled the wheels as I painted them, which helped with the angles and kept things pretty uniform. It worked out great.

    Thermal wrapped the Airbox. Thanks @RocketST for the awesome products, JP is the man.







    I noticed it's a whole lot slower for IAT to climb at red lights, also less airbox heat soak from sitting in the sun. For the money it's fantastic.

    Shifter stuffs.

    I had the cobb, clunky and not very well designed as far as installation was concerned. It's more a name and a price than a product.





    Then I saw the light that is Breedt, I have much <3 of products from @breedtproductdesign





    Also I rolled Boomba for their shifter and all their shift bushings. Fantastic products. Really top notch stuff. Which I apparently didn't take any pictures of, lol.

    WC Lathewerks make awesome knobs. I went Sphere SS with 4 rings on the bottom, and the burnt finish with 6spd engraved.







    Sorry for bad pics, it's from a Galaxy S2, lol.

    Sanded my grill, and painted my Snorkel. also slipped in a Piece of Kydex for my red crash bar accents.















    I used a belt sander and 3 hours of my time. It was memorial day, @boarder140 and @PA_LE stopped by for some grilling, drinking, and wrenching. It twas a good time for all!

    After the CJPP/Troegs meetup @Jbailey1187 (thanks for that!!) set up, I had found the exhaust parts I wanted. CJPP catless DP and the super sexy Injen 3" t304 exhaust with Burnt Ti tips.











    The CJPP DP is the way to go, superior quality at an amazing price. I did the DP and the Exhaust off of one set of ramps, moving the ramps to the rear half way through, it was interesting to say the least, lmao.

    The Injen has the sound I want, and the corrosion resistance I wanted. It's pretty awesome.

    I chatted with @grindMARC and we decided to do a dual install at his place.

    Kydex Air guides for our brakes. Marc actually tracks his car, I just like keeping busy, plus working with kydex is always fun.

    Red ones on my TB, and Blue on his PB.



















    It was a fun day of install.

    .125 black kydex for the mounting brackets, 6inch by 1.5 inch and bent 90 degrees at about 3.25 inches. Drilled the control arm in the "groove" right past the ball joint rivets. Aluminum pop rivets, and primer-ed the area to help fight corrosion.
    .060 colored kydex for the guides, about 4 inch by 14. Several relief cuts and rounded ends, sanded by the cv boot to take the sharpness off just in case.
    1/4-20 Stainless 1.5" iirc bolts, SS fender washers, SS nylon locking nuts.

    They have been holding up great, no hits, the front end of the guides scrapes a bit here and there but it's no biggie, with only two mounting points it can flex quite a bit.

    After further inquiry, I do have a template available for use.



    Also I bought all my kydex from https://www.knifekits.com/vcom/index...7n6cqtf14s4ea3 which seems to have the best variety and prices on kydex. I purchased massive 2'x4' sheets of the colored .06, and have used the kydex for other projects. I just snagged a 12"x12" of the black .125. Standard pop rivets, kinda wish they were a bit longer than what we used but, they are holding up great nonetheless.
