I already bought the paint yesterday

but why the opposition to red, and what do you suggest instead?
I want to hear your thoughts on this

red valve cover looks good on 4bangers....on a v6 it looks bad cuz the plastic cover is supposed to be the same color as the valve cover

i'd do black or silver.
i'd keep the cover and valve cover same color as well.

New Brembo rotors, Brembo pads (courtesy of Ken, thanks again buddy!), new dogbone mount and new front hydraulic engine mount.

The last bolt on the front hydraulic engine mount was a b**ch to get off because of the fact that it's right below the motor for the radiator fan

Started at 11:00. Finished at 2:30 in the morning Took my sweet old time cause I know i was tired as hell
