    Well as the title said I've been without for 3+ weeks due to weather and selling the 22's.
    Had the rims/grilles powder coated hyper gloss black they turned out great, also did r1 concept slotted/cross drilled directional rotors with hawk hps pads (amazing improvement), and did a rear roof spoiler



















    Now before



    And after

    Looks nice. It might be time to smoke the headlights.

    Rims look great. I too want to know about the calipers. Also, who makes the rotors you got?

    And a general question on rotors, that black painted area on the rotors, should it remain black painted for the life of the rotor or should he expect it to eventually look like crap like the center portion of the stock rotors?

    Looks good now, that rear roof spoiler is a nice, subtle improvement. Those old 22" wheels were hideous.

    I hate front license plates, but that comes down to if you're feeling like a rebel.

    I would rather no license plate, I painted the calipers with high temp engine paint works great and is pretty durable (not the first time I've used it) and yes no part of the rotors will rust they're plated

    Re: 3+ weeks of mods

    Did you take the calipers off the car? Looks like you did. Did you disassemble them to paint them or leave them together?

    I agree with you on the not liking lenses being smoked.
    You can however open the assembly and paint the chrome inside and this looks much better than smoking the lenses does in my mind. This way you get a better look and keep the clear lens so you don't diminish the effectiveness of the headlights.
