I'll be there to do a run through your suspension and ride height issues.

Starting at 5:30 huh?  care to do your car any earlier?

Jon,

I'm buying a 1/2 interest in an industrial condo in Ft Collins in the next few weeks. It will be about 1600/sf. I'll move my compressor and tools over after we get the walls and floor painted.

Maybe we can schedule a garage day up north sometime??

Hey, I'll be there guys for moral support! Lena wants a night out by herself so little Hannah will be tagging along. Probably leave the house around 6pm.

Cool, it will be good to see both of you, some people are coming over early, I think Amanda is coming over after golf, and Andrew D is coming over early to adjust my suspension.

We may go get a bite to eat as well.

Dang I missed out on another Gday.

Amanda, didn't we change your pads our last summer?  Did you change your rotors this time too?

She did put on some new rotors.  They look Sweet!

Slotted and cross drilled Brembos!

Thanks Jon for helping with the brakes... hehe. And for your lovely garage. And for not living 50 miles away from me. Thanks Jason for VAG-ing my car, feeding me pizza, and giving me shit.

Win- we changed my rear pads and rotors last year, but put on mintex red box pads, which suck major ass. But I wanted better brakes for the front and it was time to change them out anyway. I wanted some that would stay cool on the track etc.

So I got Brembo x-drilled/slotted cad-plated front rotors, and PBR ceramic pads for front and rear.

Mmmmm...pretty:

I want to paint my calipers so I can be cool like you. Do they make that special paint in hot pink?

Naw, they didn't have high temp hot pink when I looked for it.  They did have a nice mauve though.
