Installed my new pads today, purchased the Duralast Gold lifetime warranty pads. I was going to go Ceramic, but I wasn't going to do that unless I replaced the rotors too. The rotors are fine, so I saw no need in replacing them. Purchased the pads on our 40th anniversary at AutoZone, so I got the pads for about $23 with synthetic brake lube, lol. 30% off makes me happy...
While I was at it I repainted the calipers, but I went with bronze paint instead. Used auto wheel paint, the same paint I used back when I owned my Beretta to paint it'* calipers. Stuff works great, might I add. Doesn't grab your attention, but certainly looks good, especially with the car'* color. When I get factory 16'*, it'll be much more noticeable.
Before shot, just for comparison.
New pads! Woo!
The bronze gives it a performance look, but slightly more subtle at the same time.
It even looks good through the steelies... can't wait for some 16'* now!!
