Mom's, 7:30, we are rolling Nam's and maybe his friends..

** We have a 2 car garage**

We may just all have to park in the street and move them in 1 at a time.

The vacant lot next door up the hill, we can use that drive way if it is empty.

If you have all the tools. You need probably 4 of the bolts to pop the rotors, a big C clamp, brake parts cleaner. 2-4 jack stands.

I have all the tools. What about this brake parts cleaner. Do I need that for brand new stuff?

Yes, not than any other time. They cover the rotors in a light oil to keep them from rusting on the shelf.

The amount of oil on your rotors is directly proportional to stopping distance. :P

It is cheap, like 3.99 a can at O'Rielly's.

You have the bolts for popping the rotors?

8mmx1.25 pitch about 2 inches long.

+1 I'm in the same boat as you. I need to get mine done or either negative camber all around once I'm dropped on coilovers in the upcoming weeks. I really want to see how the process goes before I pull the trigger.

If you are availible we could do your brakes tonight, the Tuesday night yard work got canceled.

Being a full service facility, we have the brake parts cleaner in stock($2.99), everyday, along with the stainless steel braided brake lines, & ATE Super blue fluid.

2.99 is a buck cheaper on the cleaner, and those other parts look nice too.

I think Ryan was reading my mind...I was thinkin about brake fluid this morning before I saw this..and some SS lines would do the trick on the sti

I have SS lines and Motul DOT4 fluid already on the way. That will be a different day though. I hear lines are a pain.

I made it to sam's club to park under their covered drive just in time for it to slow down. Also had a CEL light come on :(

That was insane. Almost missed making a corner on 169 S when the wind and rain picked up and I lost the white line right before the corner came into view, luckily I managed to see the wall before it saw me. Caught up with Alan around 23rd st and made the smart decision to just slow it down and slot in behind him. We may have just set a new record for the slowest cruise in club history, probably couldn't get much further from the sprint to the downtown made a couple weeks ago.

Haha, I figured it was better safe and slow than fast and dead. On 169 S where it goes left to stay on 169 and right to get off for the downtown airport I almost impaled my car on the divider. After that experience I slowed down and cruised at 55 for most of the way home as the visibility was pretty poor. Once I reached Olathe I was able to get back up to 65.

Jeff, thanks for the help. Oh and the "K" from the sticker did stay on the whole way home. Once I got it home and in the garage I dried it out with a hair dryer for 20 minutes. 8)

Let's see

Me
Cify
Bissle's old car (was spotted and texted to me as a clone so the stripes are still on)
Scooby rex's old wagon (my old fenders)
Rook
Nam
Vu (SLC)
Red
Brendan
WRX04KCMO
Light (Omaha)

So 11?

To be honest I still think it is few enough that most people will not be able to make a pattern out of it.

I don't have any link or anything :( .
Story is:
When i was selling my cat and ebay downpipe on craigslist (still need to get together Danny... :) ) he contacted me to try and sell his exhaust, not quite sure why but we got to talking on the phone. I figured out that it was josh's old wagon after he told me it was silver and blue but that he was getting it painted. I asked him if i could see the final once it was painted so i went over to his house one day after work and it looks pretty good. Color is uniform, and it looks pretty good.

Really nice guy though.

not true, iirc

there was that guy from wrxmodders that was supposed to be moving here from colorado with sedan fenders and goldies even, made my wagon feel all inadequate...
