Yea I thought about that and was talking to the people who are gonna do the stripe install. They think it should be fine but it def is something I am worried about. Guess I'll find out when they get installed .

He'll be ok! Already saw car with decals longer and the paint still good! Just take your time K! From personal experience you want the decals take the glue with it when remove them... Heat gun do wonders! And a LOT of patience... And start from middle back out front make it easy to peel them off...

NS-1 are going on Wednesday!!! . As far as finishing the rotors maybe in a couple weeks? Finals are soon and I have a lot of papers/projects to do before I graduate so won't have much down time between now and the second week of April.

I hope so haha! I'm leaving the removal and installation to a professional lol. Might be a little costly but I would rather have it done right the first time (plus my bonus from work will cover it haha)

With changing just your front rotors and pads have you noticed a larger amount of break dust? I went out for a very quick drive today (literally 2 miles) and when I got back my wheels were pretty black. I did break hard a couple of time to get a feel for them but nothing out of the world.

I didn't change the front pads since I was having trouble installing them so the stock pads are still on.

Oh okay. Just wondering because my break dust seemed a little excessive for just 2 miles

My rims were darker but i had spot on the rims that were blotches of break dust. It was so thick that it made it seem like grease. I have almost no miles on the brakes though. Just about 5 miles since installed last weekend. I just cleaned it off and i guess i will see if it gets just as bad next time i drive.

You know it! Just gotta decide if I should paint the vents myself and save $100 or just buy them already painted.
