    Yea, its nice. I'm able to put the seat back more now and still fully push down and engage the clutch.

    Pulling the metal pedal pad off the clutch wasnt too bad, but installing the pedal pad onto the new billet piece was a PITA.

    Well, at least it's way over to the right. Mine is right in front of the passenger's line of sight. Drives me crazy, just haven't had the time to get it replaced.

    Upgraded to '11-'14 front control arms and spindles. Brembo 4-piston calipers and rotors up front, '13-'14 GT500 rotors out back, with StopTech stainless braided lines all around. Also scored, a price I couldn't pass up, on some SVE 19×9.5 Drifts with 275/40s.

    Patiently waiting on my MCS TT1s and Whiteline front and rear sway bars from Vorshlag

    Wow, go you! I had a chance to purchase some 2015 brembos but didn't know if they'd fit or if $500 was a good deal with no hardware or rotors..

    From what I have seen, I think that is a good price. Wish I had gone that route. Since I'm on a Pick-a-Part budget with a short time frame, I limited myself to what I could find at salvage yards, through car-parts.com, and what could be shipped to me..

    I might do this upgrade in the future, and roll these Brembos over to my wife's '14.

    Took the car the other day for a ride and it had a slight vib on a turn in Sport Mode. Without Sport Mode I didn't notice it. So I pulled the front wheels off and had them re balanced and they were an ounce off on one and moved the weights on the other. No more vibe it either Modes. Thought for a moment I was going to have to replace the rack. Well at least not yet.

    Brought the ole horse home from a non scheduled heart transplant- tomorrow have to give her a bath, oil change and a quick detail and new set of rear shoes and then off to the half mile races this weekend. 180+ or bust hopefully not literally.!!

    they took pretty could care of me by doing a lil shuffling- I had all the parts there within 2 weeks of the failure- then after that, had the heads to them in less then 21.5 hours from finding out there were junk to a new ready to bolt on set sitting on their bench. Sunday evening will be posting up some mph of the 1/2 mile runs- traction is going to be a issue- it is is a unprepped surface and no burn outs are allowed just a lil drop hop section before you turn on to the runway.

    The Top Replacement is Complete.

    Well, it took a bit of time, but to the new top is on the car and is looking great. Check out the before and after.


    The best part, is that I did this all by myself*. Yup, all by myself*. What's with the asterisk you ask? Well, that's to indicate that I may have had to redefine what "all by myself" might actually mean. By that, I mean I redefined what it means. I amended the term "all by myself" to include, but not limited to Removing 4 components of the top on my own, Allowing the car to then sit in the garage for a month, and Paying a real man to finish the job, with money that belongs to me. With a loose interpretation, you can pretty much take credit for anything.

    I won't be doing a write up in the DIY section because dangit, I neglected to take pictures of the actual process.

    Either way it looks good, nice job. Rags tops are not the easiest to do.
