Next up I scuffed the fender with some 220grit and cleaned it. Then some primer and paint.

I ended up placing some black gorilla tape over the gap to minimize the amount of water draining through the fender during rain/car washes. As the tape was glossy, I also sprayed a coat of matte spray paint over it. I have some extra two sided tape from my spoiler install that I'll use to mount them. Just need to catch the other side up...

Interesting thing with the fender vent, in the future instead of JB Weld you could use Amazing GOOP (Also called Marine Goop or Shoreline Marine GOOP). I have used it on my boat when I owned one and on two different Kayaks, held up fine even when exposed to Florida sun 24/7. It's easier to work with than JB Weld.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll try it on my next project.

Track day at Hallett! It was pretty chilly in the morning, and the track started out fairly slick. After my second run of the morning, I noticed a slight squeaking at front my front right wheel. I had checked my pads prior to ensure I had sufficient wear for one day at the track. I pulled off the front left wheel and upon further inspection, while there was some wear remaining on the outer pad, there was nothing left on the inner pad.

Unfortunately, I hadn't brought a spare set of pads with me, so I ended up running to a local O'Reilly's for a temporary replacement. Unfortunately, the replacement pads just weren't up to the task, experiencing some extreme fade, and nearly put me off the track twice. I decided to take it even easier after that due to lack of brake confidence. It was a bummer as I was hoping to establish some performance data on my most recent mods, but it will have to wait for next Spring now with my DBA Pads I haven't had a chance to use yet.

Still on my to do list:
Stainless steel brake lines
DIY brake vents
Crawford billet power blocks
Front camber bolts

My OEM battery finally crumped out after struggling ever since I got back from being gone for the summer. I elected to go with the Odyssey PC680 due to it being lighter weight than OEM (~16lbs vs. ~30lbs) and well priced. I reused the stock tray and bracket, but made a base form to sit in the oem tray that would hold the new battery in place.
