I also took this chance to install Perrin intake pipe. Don't like having bling looking under the hood, so kept it black. Overall it still look like OEM.
How come you haven't painted your dip stick?

Update.

Several months ago, some idiot hit my front bumper & damaged it. Did a lot of debate between aftermarket bumper & stock bumper, decided to go with just fix the current front bumper. Plus few other things getting painted.

Update:

After not having my car for almost 2 months, finally got it back... but sadly, they didnít do a great job painting. Hoping to do some good photo shoot this weekend or so to show my current look. But for now, enjoy my ejecto seato! Lol

Went to the shop to get few things done.

TOB whistling even in the cold temp, thought itís a time to replace it. While replacing the TOB upgrade the clutch fork & pivot with Verus Engineering. Bob from Drift Office alway said to replace bearing retainer too, so got those as well.



Got it back next day. Bearing retainer looked decent. The the greatest, but didnít look too bad.


Same goes for Pivot. A bit dusty from the clutch, but still better than expected.


Clutch fork & TOB was pretty good. No extreme wear. TOB spin smoothly.



2nd thing Iíve done is Iíve finally tinted my windows. Front got tinted to 50%. State limit is 45%. 50%~55% visually looked good and still able to see outside in the night, so went w it.


Back is 35%. Shop recommended 25%, but it looked WAY dark, so upped 10%.
