    I went up to the mountains last Sunday and it was stunning how much the 14's with the shot as hell GeForce super sports gave me I largely think a lot of my previous hesitation up there was the suspension. If they still make the Proxes T1-S's I might just get those so they match

    Is it a WRX or a Miata? It's hard to tell, I will be getting the gold off but I needed to put them on as my old tires were bald as **** and one had a nail in it.

    I think it looks great.

    I'd put getting the gold off at the bottom of the list, live with it for a while and see if it grows on you.

    It's growing on me but I'm going to try it with dip as if I'm going to go with gold I want it to be a little more glossy

    Ashley got two new shoes, I haven't looked in-depth at the front tires but I did notice side wall dry rot on the back tires which is why one of the first things I did at work was order those, they will be put on tomorrow. I also found that throttle body cleaner works wonder on plastidipped wheels and I'm falling in love with the silver of the chaps.

    Much better in my opinion, especially wrapped in new rubber, so far the tires seem to be pretty good, some of the reviews did say that wet traction was not great so tomorrow will be interesting

    If that's the side latch then I wouldn't worry about it.

    The factory puts the Japanese equivalent of red loc-tite on them. I usually hit them with a torch before using the hand impact driver.

    Is that on the hardtop only? My side latches came off easy same with all the soft top latches I've dealt with.
