I do have to do my calipers though. They are corroded. I was planning on removing them, wire brushing everything, and get a few coats on there so it looks smooth. I dunno if I should do it in Black or red. I'd do yellow if I had black wheels.

g2 or the duplicolor stuff in the box will be glossy, more so on g2 but its 40 bucks. and you have to do all 4 calipers at once you only have a few hours to work with!

I'll be doin mine soon, the calipers are corroded. I also bought new anti rattle clips since mine are rusted and the last thing i want is rusty clips on freshly painted calipers!

Painting stock calipers any color beside black or silver is rice.

JUst bought 2 pre and 2 post cat O2 sensors + O2 sensor removal tool from amazon for $253 shipped. Spent an additional $30 for the expedited shipping option. My car wont pass inspection because the O2 sensors are slow now and my inspection expired yesterday :(

Hmmm... Anybody need four new Bosch O2 sensors + tool? I got the hookup on an inspection sticker yest so my X is good now and I'm not interested in wasting my Saturday under my X getting dirty. My pocket is $100 lighter tho...
