For a change of pace as im getting sick of stripping paint, I started trimming up a center console I purchased. Plan is to delete the cup holder area as to me its kind of an awkward design, and then buy two universal cup holders to drop in. Will give a much more clean look, rid of the awkward centerconsolecupholderthingamagig they came up with. It will also allow me to add in some foam underneath the material im going to wrap it in as on long drives I rest my elbow there and being a hard surface it starts to hurt over time.

With the cupholder area cut out I cut a section out of it to use as a blank to start creating the mounting area for the Tein EDFC controller.

FINALLY DONE STRIPPING THE REAR CALIPERS TO MY LIKING. Fuck powder coat, that took way too many sessions of stripping and scraping. The outer portions will now are boxed up and shipped out to a buddy for some work.

With the calipers taken care of I turned my attention back to the interior pieces. I picked up some new cutting disk for my Dremel and went to town on chopping it up. First I cut the heated seat button mounts out so I could reuse them in the front portion of the console. I then trimmed up. the cut line of the main center console to get it ready to grafted in the center section.

Next up I got to work on the push button trim. I cut out the push button mounting so I could use it to mount into the shifter trim. With it out of the way I was able to trim up the flat section id cut from the cup holder area to create a blank to plastic weld in.

With the trimming of the blank completed, and ready for the plastic welder which I will have to bring it to work for, I turned my attention to actually mounting the EDFC controller into the blank area I just created. I took some square aluminum tubing and cut it into two 90* angles. Ill be cutting out another set and two small sections to glue to the bezel as the actual mount itself.

Alright, decent sized update.

This past week I was away on work in Chicago for a Management conference so I was unable to post about my Ti parts coming in for my calipers.

Well, they finally came in from Russia. Shipping took forever, as expected, and the actual making of the parts took much longer than I was initially lead to believe. But they are here and thats all that matters. Now to decide if I should get matching hardware for the rear calipers since I've started on those now....

With the parts in I finally had enough in that I could assemble the calipers. There were a few minor issues with the Ti parts, part there issue, part mine, and I was unable to use a few components due to incorrect thread pitch ( trying to speak to someone in russia who's 2mr or 3rd language isn English has its difficulties). But they were easily overcome by using my existing hardware. With the Ti parts, and new aluminum mount brackets I was able to shave 1.8 lbs from the as factory condition of these calipers, which translates to a 4.2 lbs saving over the box factory calipers. This weight doesn't include the rotors.

Few weeks back I had sent out the rear calipers to a buddy of mine. Reasoning behind that was for him to do some engraving for me. As some of you may be aware, there was never a Prodrive rear brake set made to match the front setup. Being a stickler about details, I wanted them to match and flow together. So I sent them to my buddy Jami Schnakengburg at Bombsquad Performance (shameless shoutout, they do amazing work, look them up on fb and IG, ti welding, engraving, inc work the lot, awesome guys). Needless to say ill let the pictures do the talking. OH yeah, once they came in I painted them too Which I need to redo as so spots I thought would come out ok did not.
