Default Finally some sun!!!!

Finally it'* feeling like summer over here on the west coast! I had to get out and get do something with the bonnie, so how about those ugly calipers up front....


Lets make em red!


While waiting for the paint to dry, noticed some shavings under the hood. Dusts off easily, I'm thinking one of my belts is being shaved off.... Hm....



So, on with pics. with the final product.



One w/ the shades







Finished the dash:


Engine, but VERY dirty! (thanks for the new cover SSEi):



that'* all for now......

Looking very good John.
A Mega improvement over last year.

Everyone has red calipers except me now. :(

I have been debating the color change for a while now.....Silver...Red...or leave them Black.
