Started with new pads and was going to drop on some good used rotors I had in the front.... Turns out I was lied to about what those came off of, and the front calipers were leaking..... Then I was gone all that time...

Now we are trying to get the calipers cleaned up to paint, and they aren't being agreeable.

I could... But the last time I took a car to a January AX because the 944 was broken, the heater core on the corrado imploded....

Besides, I need to spend that time fixing my car, we need to work next week, and I start back to school wednesday.

Bought new rotors, and I'm trying to do this on the cheap, besides, calipers aren't that big of a deal to rebuild, and they would be done already if I wasn't trying to make them pretty

The 21 minute response times are for folks that live in the sticks.
I've not had good experiences with OK Foreign.... I went in looking for some stuff, they treated me poorly, and I felt like they were trying to skin me...

And Lindsey is just too damned high on most stuff....


Oh and I do live in the sticks.... It wouldn't take 21 mins if I called 911... But it wouldn't be immediate, hence the loaded gun in the house...

Well you have a handbrake, right Sid? Just use that. Pitch the car in to the turn and scrub speed by drifting.
