Nice. I will be installing mine in about 2 weeks hopefully. I have never done breaks before but my dad will be there with me. I still need to get my hawk pads though. I will be ordering them next week from Patrick at GM parts house. But enough of my car in your thread I love the Nurburrings on your car. If I ever go aftermarket that's what I'm doing.

All good I don't mind . Let me know how your rotor install goes.


Update: Just ordered a couple of small things today:

Black Gorilla lug lucks - will be selling my chrome ones that came with my wheels if anyone is interested
Protective screen for my radio
New Rx breather (old one got drentched in oil cause I was an idiot and left my catch can drain valve open for like 600 miles)
And a Gold Magnetic Oil Drain bolt

Curious, are the chrome ones better than the stock P.O.S. ones?

The lugs? They are lighter for sure plus adds that extra security knowing your wheels won't get stolen haha.

I think the NS1 stripes are gonna look real badass bro , can you take a pic of rotors installed as I'm thinking of getting a set for my car and I'd like to see how they look on your car , don't forget to dyno after the headers install to see the gains you're gonna get .

Thanks! Will def get some pics of the rotors installed. If this nice weather keeps up I am looking at getting them installed sometime next week, prob Thursday or so.



A little update:

Did my first oil change today and it went pretty good, my new jack works . Since the LLT doesn't come with a magnetic drain plug I ordered one and replaced the stock one. If anyone else is interested this is the one I bought: http://www.magneticdrainplug.com/Aut...lugs/AP04.html

Now I bought the extra washer but I didn't actually use it. It will be interesting to see what the plug picks up during my next oil change. O and the magnetic plug is 0.02lbs lighter than stock!!! Woo Hoo!!!! haha

Well my first post of your build thread. I'm not trying to be nasty,makesure you keep your Lug nut sleeve in the car at all times you never know when you will need it. Did you use synthetic oil. The car looks awesome you've done 1 heck of a great,should be very proud of your work & choi ce of making it your own.

I too installed a magnetic plug, it picks up a little bit of gung each oil change, nothing big, but does look a little dirty on the end. Nice to know it is grabbing something.

Just remember to take it with you if you park where someone can break in and grab the lug sleeve! You might come out and find the car up on blocks with it's shoes off!

Yea def wasn't expecting that! Haha no I didn't win the tiebreaker I only picked 81 total points and that was gone within like a couple min into the second half. I wonder if they will give the 1st 2nd 3rd place to use three who were tied for first based on the tiebreaker?
