Wrap up:

Ok, so first let me say that mike @ http://www.thepowdercoater.com is PHENOMENAL. His work is absolutely top-notch! Not only does he do a killer job with a superior method (that holds up to abuse), you basically get brand-new brakes that he rebuilds and guarantees for life. Seriously, if you wanna do this mod check this guy out. You won't be disappointed. He also will ship you a new set and once he gets the cores back refunds you $350. This was the best option for me as I needed to be able get my ride functional again as quick as possible.

Also, mike (weedahoe) at https://sites.google.com/site/tricke...ights-for-sale

or weedahoe@hotmail.com

hooked me up with the wheel light kit. It came with all the hardware I needed as well as a great controller and booster. Not only that, but his customer service was top-notch. Couldn't be happier! If you're wanting to go down the wheel light mod path and want RGB like I did then this guy is the way to go! I went with his V2 kit (you have to measure the diameter of your rotor/caliper). I went with 15 3/4th", though in hindsight I might have done 16" or 16 1/4th" and those SS brembos are a bitch to get around.
