Thanks man! They are definitely worth it and the guy who sells them offers all sorts of custom options too.

That's how I feel about my custom ones! I wish I had some stock ones for rainy days.

Thanks for posting the pics Tom, they do look great.

New video is good! Your selection of mens pants is impressive, now i know where to go.
I like the setup, especially the body grommet for the meth and boost lines. I try not to throw away any of that type of stuff either, but i need a better system for keeping it organized so i can actually find it when i need it.

And i've been meaning to say, do you produce ALL of the music for the vids? There's a few beats in there that i really like. The credits beat in the latest video is one example.

Yes I am mens pant expert! I am corner market and become Pants King! All competitor have none pant selection. Pants King have giant pile of mens pants in attic for you buying! YOU BUY MENS PANTS NOW, YES?! Go to for Pants King webnet site and enter banking details for maximum pants enjoyment!

Thanks man, I have soooo many little Mitsu bolts, grommets and other doodads. I picked up a couple of those plastic tray organizer things and keep them all separated by size/type in there. It's GREAT to have them fairly organized. They used to be in giant bins and it drove me nuts.

Regarding the music, I make most all of it using my guitar, keyboard and ipad. I do use some licensed percussion loops and usually modify them a bit. I don't like using loops, but making a passable beat takes me a long time and I have very little time for video work lately. Unfortunately I don't see time freeing up anytime soon.

Another awesome video Tom. The cartoon instructions took me back 25 years when I built a Kyosho Rampage RC car that I got one Christmas as a kid.

Also when you bolted the first caliper back on I was thinking to myself, there's no way that he's not going to clean that thing up and paint it. Glad to see that you did.

I think I used the same blank rotors on 503 when I did its brakes. Unfortunately, without a coating on the non-friction surfaces, they got rusty and ugly real fast. When I put new rear rotors on 1051 not long ago, I purchased some that had a black coating on all non-friction surfaces. So far, so good.

Thank you sir! I would love to do so much more detail work than I'm doing. Ideally I'd remove the calipers, have them powder coated a factory looking finish, rebuild them, install new brake lines, etc. etc. I just have almost no time for garage stuff these days due to work and such. Regarding the "instruct-o-toons" I'm now on a quest to find as many of these cartoony instructions as I can. These are my two favorites from the 1991 Talon owner's manual:

What!?! I can't tow a camper with my turbocharged sports coupe? That's it, first thing Monday morning I'm going straight to the dealership to demand an explanation.



Every time you do a one wheel rear wheel drive burnout in a puddle, the little living creature that is your rear differential feels anxiety and great pain.

Hey Mark! Dangit, I need more time to do more detail work. I painted the non-friction surfaces on my old turbo Miata rotors and they stayed perfect, no rust at all. Regarding the VR-4, I saw the ones with the black coating online and didn't get them for some reason. Not sure if they were sold out or the description was lacking, but I passed on them. Thanks for telling me about these. I have zero miles on my new rotors as of now, but ripping them off to paint them sounds about as much fun as hitting myself in the nizz-uts with a whiffle ball bat.
