Finished painting the hats on my drilled slotted rotors tonight, I will upload before/after pics here shortly. I painted them using a wet black high temp engine enamel paint, and 3 coats of clear coat. They came out better than expected... Next step is the paint the slots on the rotors tomorrow. I'm in no big rush.. Need to get my hand on a floor jack so I can insta these already!

I bought my front rotors from brake motive, and my rears from brake performance. Along with power stop ceramic brake pads. I had those on my old ls1 and they never rusted, or warped.. Ever. Best rotors and pads I have ever used.

on a side note:
I'm ready to buy bigger headers, but texas speed has been sold out for 2 months now it seems like.

Also purchased a scoggin dickeys crank bolt for 15$, it isnt TTY and is reusable like the ARP crank bolt.

Will be buy more parts this weekend, and hopefully some more ARP fasteners. I'm highly considering a ARP make over, might aswell.

update:

My car is out of the body shop; Bumper, bumper support were replaced, trunk lid was repaired and repainted, and i fixed my fender aswell.

I also purchased a l99 oil pump along with some new BMR adjustable toe's with bushings. The oil pump will be reworked and ported by russell barber at volatile performance, gave me a hell of a deal and i found the low mileage pump at 50$! and i found these toe's brand new 160$ shipped..

dropped off the oil pump to get ported on memorial day.
It'll just be ported to extract a little more volume, and have a new oring installed.

On another update,
I decided I am going to use a custom made bracket for my backseat for my nitrous bottle... I dont think anyone has done this before, so it should be pretty interesting
