Does anyone know where I can buy a Dark Smoke Valenti 4th brake light? Ft86SpeedFactory says they are on back order.

They are always on back order. I got mine (black/gold) in ~3 weeks when I ordered the taillights and about the same time when I ordered the 4th.

I guess I should probably just order it from them and wait then.

So I got around to fitting the two Diode Dynamics parts at the weekend and tried them out on my commute to work today.

The Smart Tap is possibly the best $60 anyone could spend on this car! I don't care for the stupid strobe affect nonsense nor do I care about it leaving the turn signals on after I leave the car.. BUT.. The three blink thing is priceless!

The 'Always On' mod on the other hand is possibly the worst $60 anyone could spend on this car! I fail to see any difference between this and stock. I left the car in drive with the hand brake on and nothing is lit up... So much for always on. Slip it into neutral and take the hand brake off and the DRL and Boomerangs come on... Well I'm not 100% sure if the boomerangs were on before or not but wow.. talk about underwhelmed. It certainly doesn't do what its name implies as it doesn't leave anything 'Always on'. Simply terrible.

In drive with handbrake on


In Neutral with handbrake off

FT86 Speed Factory finally sent my 4th brake light. I followed the YouTube video on how to separate the V and make the brake light flash but when I wired it up, the brake light didnt flash and is very dim. Anyway, it's in and I'm not bothered enough to take it apart and redo anything.. Main thing I wanted was the V as a running light and the triangle off.

Tried putting on my cheap knock off Chargespeed side skirts on today using 3M tape.. Didn't work for shit - The tape just wouldn't stick to the side skirts, period.

Really don't want to drill holes in the metal so might go with the OEM STI skirts, as much as I don't really like them.

BRZ or truck? Nah, who needs a truck?




Taking a bunch of GC parts up to the bodyshop after work tomorrow.

While I was searching through everything, I went to move an empty box and found it wasn't empty.. Actually it was pretty heavy and I had no idea what it was so I opened it up and found this, forgot I had ordered it which was a nice surprise!
