You bet. Heritage grill will be happening soon. Had Apex tailights on the list too, but Driveshaft Shop stuff and brake up-grades pushed them down the list. As you know not big on appearance stuff. Kind of like the the stuff I can feel. Always liked sleepers.

Pads for sure. Maybe SS lines and rotors. Apparently a day on the road course will take out the stock pads.

BSS lines are probably the cheapest upgrade you can make that you really feel at the pedal.

Mine have been sitting here for nearly a month now and I NEED to get them in. I guess I've been waiting for a few things to do if I'm going to get it up on jack stands. Meh...might as well knock it out. Guess I'll go and get some more Superblue tomorrow...

Although the Holiday Season is almost over. We still have one major distraction going on up here in the Great White North. The World Junior Hockey Championship (Buffalo NY). Today is the big showdown semi-final between Canada and USA:flag2:. It will be a nail biter. You know Canucks, beer and hockey is a big deal up here.

Tuesday is a Pumpkin work day. Just got the trailing arm outer bushings and pumpkin bushings to go. Then the exhaust to go back on. Then were ready for a weather window to get Pumpkin to the alignment rack. Hopefully a two day window and a two day permit will be in order.

As far as brake stuff, I have not ordered parts yet. But soon. I'll do brakes and clutch resivoir at same time. Right now a Driveshaft Shop aluminun one piece is a priority. I think my Heritage grill is painted and ready to go too.

Stay tuned for further devlopements.

Sure. Maybe on the way to C5F II. I will be permitting it for a trip to the alignment shop soon. Let you know my impressions after that. TOO late to turn back now. Maybe we can swap rides for a few miles on the way to C5F II. Maybe NOT I'll just want a blower. Like they say injection is nice, but I'd rather been blown.
