    Installed the RotoFab 102 upgrade and last week I ordered up new inner fender liners for the front... went with oem-like, not oem. The product that came is what I should've expected, flimsy. I really only needed the driver side, so I found oem on ebay for $90 and ordered it to be here tomorrow.

    While it's all apart, had the front rotors turned and painted the hats black, as well as ordered PPV rear rotors and painted the hats of them black as well. Once the liner is in, I'll get the front brakes back together and then swap rear rotors - getting some new tires mounted at the same time. Then maybe, just maybe, I'll drive it. ;-)

    Big girl definitely needed some help slowing down after the lsa. I was planning on going the brembo route like everyone else but I was fortunate to have a buddy in the industry score me a too good to pass up deal on the baer 6s for not and rear.

    I'm 3/4 of the way done it's an easy swap but decided to stop for now and drink beer with the wife in the back yard...haha
