Yeah, looks great! I have that exact same kit sitting on my stairs waiting for a less-than-90-degree day to wash in.
Got a question for you all, though. I'm planning on repairing a rather large key scratch that'* down to the primer along my passenger side (damned ex, probably). Should I clay across the scratch before painting, or would it be best to avoid it with the clay, do the rest of the car, and only clean the scratched area with a solvent like 100% alcohol. I'm not too experienced on paint jobs, and would appreciate any tips you guys have.
Thanks in advance,
-E

You will want to avoid anything that will effect how the paint sticks. Clean the area with a safe solvent and touch it up. Clay only removes embedded debris in the clear coat.

Next:
Putting Cross Drilled and slotted Rotors all the way around but found out (when I opened the box) they sent metalic pads (cheap) so I am having to get ceramic pads for the car before that job can be done. I am about getting tired of Ebay sellers saying one thing and sending another item in it'* place It will make you want to stop buying off of ebay sometimes
My mechanic said i would be much happier with Ceramic pads on the car in the long run and suggested I wait a couple days till I can get some Ceramic pads.

What are the best brake pads to use on our cars? thanks

Default thanks everyone for the nice comments

I will look into the Hawk Front Ceramic pads.

I decided last minute today to change the STINKY OIL in my car!

SUPERCHARGER OIL!!

The dealer wanted $140.00 to do it and I was able to do it myself for $17.00

This dirty oil which had 77,800 miles on it had to be the smellest oil I have ever smelt. The change was very easy and If anyone needs to know how to do it just let me know and I can tell you.

Does anyone know how often you should change this oil in the Supercharger? I have heard every 30,000 miles is the best, but not sure.

There'* already Tech Info on how to do this in the forum at https://www.gmforum.com/t278817/

And if you use the Mobile 1 at oil change, use the remainder of the oil from that last quart and change you SC snout oil also.

@Purple

Since when does answering a question posed by the author of a thread constitute "thread-jacking"? I guess the rules have changed in the five years I've been frequenting this site... I realize the question was off-topic, but did my answer really need to be removed without warning?
