lol well, the rotors should last for decades then. Did you ever post pics of them in another thread? How's the pedal feel, etc?

Ok it's been a few months and of course I have more updates

- NEW version of GRP's awesome tails
- I cut the end off my exhaust tip so it didn't stick out so much and then contoured, sanded and re-polished it
- Added large diamond mesh for a rear panel - painted high temperature satin black
- The Black Swan - a GUT Carbon Fiber rear spoiler - which I'll mount without the base. Carbon fiber brackets/tubes inside the trunk for anti-clam-cracking support.

Everything is just sitting in place until I get placement finalized... stay tuned!

Oh, looks like I'll be selling my refinished ceramic coated TR Motorsport F1's in the next few weeks...

It's looking pretty cool. It'd be a shame to see that wing on there, IMO. I'd opt for something like a gurney flap on the tail instead.
