Default Aurora Mod Day?



Its all here

Headlamp assembly ready to be swapped out, Cool Blue 9005s, new fogs, new side markers, Electronic level sensor, Rototech cross drilled and slotted rotors, ceramic pads, 4 Eagle RSA tires, Bonneville SSEi rims, painted calipers (wanna suggest a color?).

Should be an exciting few weeks.

White calipers could be pretty sweet, and with ceramic pads, not to shabby to keep clean.

Otherwise Don't go anything to flashy or bright on the brakes, it'* a white car after all White then Silver IMO.

With that new lamp, make sure the seal on the bulb is still good.

Yeah, Peter and I were talkin red or white...we were also thinking about painting the grey/black trim to white.

Gonna make sure I use Liquid Gasket to make sure the seal is tight on the back of the housing

Sounds like you got some work cut out for you as well. Have fun and don't break any of the shiny new toys.

Well thanks for the posts guys

The ELC gets done tomorrow, I am picking up my rotors and pads at lunchtime, I asked that they do the lights, I gave up on trying to access the light housings...whadda nightmare, the whole buttom of the car is sealed off.

All the mech stuff is getting done first and vanity later
