    Those are the wheels I was looking into buying. I'd really like to see what they look like on the car.

    Mike please don't rub it in. We still have a serious amount of snow. Wicked rides did close shop. They were horrible. Just a couple decent places here for performance parts. They actually get decent prices too. But these days shops have to give better prices or people will just get everything online.

    Re: My 06 CTS build

    Well I took care of my fog lights today. I did the 3M headlight restore on them. Then, I used tail light tint to tint the orange half of the fogs. Turned out pretty good. When they went back in I installed an HID kit.

    I then tried the tail light tint on my tail lights.......FML that didn't turn out well. The angles on our tails are just too harsh and on different angles. I tried for a while and couldnt get it. Anyways, here is a pic of the finished fogs. I will get pics on the car soon.

    FML "face palm"!!!!! So I went to get my rims on today. Got them on and went to drive away and the car was WAY TO LOW. So I got the rims taken off the car. I brought them home so I can readjust the coilovers. Pics to come in a day or two!

    Well I rolled the rear fenders today. Should be able to lower the car another half inch. Monday will be a headlight polishing and DIY front lip.

    Ya I installed H10 HID's and the are great. It and play. The tint made them nice and dark, but the orange still looks nice too so no trouble from the piggies!!!

    Re: My 06 CTS build

    If your worried about the look of the rust on the rotors but don't actually need new rotors, pull the wheels off, sand down the rust and hit them with two coats of high heat flat black tremclad thinly brushed on (one of those tiny half quart cans could do 50 rotors), obviously not going much over the area where the clean metal is where the pads hit. Any minor overage will be cleaned up on the first drive, and you have a nice clean black inner circle. Just make sure you sand them down sufficiently (takes about 5 minutes a rotor max). I did mine two years ago now and they are still black and rust free. It's not anything special, but your eyes never go there as it's just flat black instead of bright orange rust.

    That's not a bad idea bro, I think I might do that tomorrow since I have the car in the garage again for fender rolling and spark plug and oil change. Last time I did that I use a protractor set and made cutouts of where the pad touched and spray painted them. Worked great but I lost my protractor set lol. So brush on it is!!!
