I was looking for help/advice on replacing my stock rotors and wondering are the rotors on the 4S any different than an S? I have checked several sites and no one seems to specifically list the 4S in the vehicle option for rotors. Thanks J. B.

It worked really well; it came out with matte finish. The best part was the mesh is still very flexible which made the install nice because there were no worries about chipping or scratching.
A # 10 or # 9.5 rubber stopper trimmed down from a local hardware store works just as well.

I got the bumper off and have added the middle radiator to my 06 C4S, it was one of the easiest things I have ever done, plug and play. I started to make the grills out of stainless steel mesh that I bought from Pegasus Racing (http://www.pegasusautoracing.com/productselection.asp?Product=3641) size 24x36; I will use stainless steel any chance I get. I was curious about coating the stainless. I thought about powder coating or painting but because the stainless is a woven mesh it will chip or crack if I flex it. Then it dawned on me, has anyone tried the Plastic Dip as a coating, it is a vinyl coating that is used to replace the handles on tools. When I am done I will post pictures of the molds I made and how I formed the stainless mesh. Any thoughts?
First and foremost I am new to this forum and found it very useful and informational. Now, I just bought used 2006 997 4S and wanted to make some interior changes. I bought, against my wife’s wishes, a shifter boot, e-brake and steering wheel from a 2007 GT3 that was being parted out. I have worked on my own cars for a lot of years and have never been afraid to take things a part. But, wanting to learn a little bit about this car I began researching the internet and found this forum. After reading the forum on the shifter boot and center console removal I started my project. After reading it is difficult to get the knob off of the shifter post I decided to use a pair of Channel Locks with a small piece of rubber tubing around the shifter post and a pair of lineman pliers for leverage. The shifter knob began to come off with ease; this was too good to be true. I got to the point where I thought I could pull the boot off but found it still was on there pretty good. So, what I did next was lean over the shifter knob, got a good hold of the shifter and began lifting. I began to really pull hard and it came off. In the process of coming off I ended up hitting myself pretty hard in the head (in the right eyebrow) with the shifter knob. I began laughing and decided I should get an ice pack to prevent any swelling. Well, as I was going into my house I felt that warm sweat feeling running down my face, I knew this wasn't good. I looked down and had blood all over my shirt, I looked in the mirror in the bathroom and found out I was bleeding pretty good. What I thought was funny before became even funnier. So after controlling the bleeding I knew this was something that was beyond my scope. A McQueen band-aid from my kid’s bathroom wasn’t going to cut it!! I ended up with several stitches’ in my eyebrow and a very nice black eye!! My wife told me later that night that karma has a funny way of working itself out. I think it was a willed form of domestic violence!! So the lesson learned is don't lean over the shifter boot while your trying to remove it. If this post prevents one injury it’s worth it!! Thank you to everyone who has posted DIY articles, hopefully I can remain injury free when working on my 997!!
