FINALLY finished changing the color of the seat stitching to red (much bigger project than I'd expected...'course I can't draw a straight line with a ruler...I couldn't even keep my crayons inside the lines in kindergarten) and doing the Plasti-Dip thing on the instrument bezels.

I had to fill the 6-speed pattern on the console molding cuz I wanted to use the white Hurst shift ball...and it had its own pattern.

Like someone else posted, I shudder to think about painting the steering wheel's silver with black. I'm gonna wait until after Speed Week on the salt flats...maybe until after the whole salt flats season.

Wish I would have known about this before. Yesterday I installed a VMAX CNC ported throttle body and a CAI system, then today I drove almost 800 miles to Washington state to run in a race.

A clay bar might take it off easier next time...I know it works for paint over spray and it's definitely worth a shot.

Yeah stock diameter. After breaking in the pads as per the Hawk instructions. We took her out and put her through some hard breaking. She stops a lot quicker and I bet she looks a lot better doing it. Just need to buy & install the stainless steel brake lines and then we're good.
