Finally got the rear drum to disc conversion done last weekend... while I was at it, switched out my winter wheels for my new summer wheels and installed some new rotors. Freshly washed and waxed, hope you like the new look!

looks great man! did you ever redo your retro? too bad you arent coming to the meet tmrw here in Queens!
thanks for the comments all!


yup, the new retros are the ones pictured... TSX's with gatling gun shrouds. i might redo them again this summer:lol:


i think i'll go with TL bixenon's this time, i'm tired of the damn high beams getting misaligned everytime i put the headlights back together. right now, my driver's side high beam is pointing down, but the projector cutoffs are aligned otherwise. with the TL's, i won't have to worry about aligning two beams.


i've also been putting off retrofitting some projectors into the foglights... might finally get around to doing that.

best all season tire in the world!!!
gotta agree with that! :D

really, once you get the parts, the conversion isn't bad. you may have a lot of trouble getting the hubs off (they get rusted on reallly good!) especially if you live where the roads are salted. i actually broke my slide hammer before the hub even budged an inch. gave up after that and took the entire damn knuckles off and had the hubs pressed out by a shop.
