So I decided that I was finally going to embark on one of my many projects that I'd like to do eventually. Unfortunately, it took quite a while to just paint one rotor hat and caliper, and I'm starving, so I decided to leave the other side for another day. Also did a quick detail on the engine. Nothing major, just some cleaning and some back to black.

Before:



After some cleaning and sanding:




After:




Finished:




I also tried to clean behind the wheel (you can see that to the left of the wheel the black plastic is pretty shiny) as well as the backside of the wheel itself. Looks a little better but not spectacular.

And here's the engine bay:

Hell no I don't want to do yours!

And actually, I kinda agree there tiller. I got done, all cleaned up, looked at it and went, "Well I guess it looks better...". But yeah, a lot of work for not a whole lot of pay-off. I mean, black definately looks better than rust! But... I dunno. Now I have to do the other three. Haha

Then I had the realization that I'd have to do it all over again if the rotors can't be turned... Haha. At least it'll be easier off the car.

Nothing else on the car is red. I have Brembo front calipers and they are black, so this matches the front as well as all the other black accents on the car.

What do you have planned for the beast?
Getting a rad cover that covers from side to side all one piece painted with the stripes, painted strut tower brace with the stripes, gonna try to custom paint all the engine pieces I can including the charger, carbon fiber single piece drive shaft, maybe a cage and some stuff on the interior, not sure where I wanna go with that just yet

I'd change the brembo with some that are red then.

Damn. Sounds like a lot of stuff! yeah I've seen those covers that go from side to side. They look great on S197s! That's gonna be a sexy GT500 :D

I wouldn't. But thanks anyway. There is NOTHING on the car that's red. The tail-lights are tinted.
