I think my one piece shaft is smoother.

Sapphirehero is right. One piece is smoother engaging and less noisy. My stock shaft had lots of play. I can't say my aluminum driveshaft shop one made the car faster but it did improve my driving experience. And for $350or whatever, it's a must in my opinion. If you have patience, you can get em used. I sold mine a couple months ago cuz it won't fit my LS build

Fortune Auto 500. Blackworks LCA, J2 trailing & toe, whiteline endlink, Perrin sway bar. Had to hacksaw and use a boltcutter on the OEM toe ball joint bolt. Then it was short enough for my ball joint separator. Other than that, the install went fairly smooth. I'm excited about installing the parts on the front next. More pics soon...

Refinished TRD wheels for my son. Two were slightly curbed. All had paint chipping that is apparently common with these. Sanded, scuffed, filled, cleaned and painted with a General Motors GunMetal color that was close as I could find. Just a bit lighter than the OEM TRD color. Still need to paint the barrels, apply the red to the sunken TRD center cap emblems and clear coat all.

I have not decided wether to clear them with a Satin or Matte clear. Suggestions?

I would do satin or even glossier. Higher sheen = longer lasting and easier to clean. My current wheels came in a matte finish and that's the only thing I'd change is do a gloss clear on them if I ever refinished them.
The only good thing is the matte finish hides the brake dust better but that's on a matte black finish and you are doing silver.

Matte black wheels hide brake dust because they already look like they are 100% covered in it

Yep, when it's time to clean them I just have to trust I actually did so because they always look "clean" or "dirty" depending on how you think matte black looks on a wheel.

Today I completed my Rexpeed convex heated mirror install by installing the relay for the heated mirrors and tested them out. Both mirrors got warm after about a minute with no blown fuses, burning electrical smells, etc. Needless to say I was quite pleased that the effort I put into adding the proper wiring to the factory harness was worth it.

I also installed the windshield adapter for my auto dimming compass mirror, fed the wire through the headliner, installed the wire cover, and installed the new mirror. I'm still waiting for my wiring harness to arrive so I can plug it into the connector hiding under the headliner.

The last thing I did was order a new clutch slave cylinder with a 3/4 bore as outlined in a thread by @Ultramaroon that I stumbled across last night. I can't stand this clutch anymore and everyone who drives my car complains about the clutch, so this slave cylinder will supposedly solve all of my problems.

Edit- to add to our debate about the 86 Speed hood struts from the other day: the shiny stickers that say "86 Speed" have begun to peel off of both struts after owning them for a few days. The struts themselves still work fine, but the stickers seem pretty cheap.

Maybe I should have. The shiny stickers on the shocks were the main reason I bought them and now that the stickers have fallen off I have no reason to like them anymore...

It wouldn't be the same as having the originals

Just to make sure we're all on the same page here, I'm being sarcastic. I don't care about the stickers.
