  1. this is what happened when i used a brush-on kit:


    and here are the results using Duplicolor (hi-heat) spray paint.


    any questions? ;)

    I agree with Chris, I just finished replacing my rotors and pads and I painted the calipers while I had everything apart. I used VHT High Temp caliper paint and it worked fine. A lot more prep work but I am happy with the results.







  2. I just did this today and found that a combination of the rubber plugs and adjustment of the latch module allowed my front trunk to close alot easier.

    Also one more note in regards to Viper's excellent write-up. I found the microswitch to be held in by two plastic tabs.

    This board is Awesome! Thanks Viper for the excellent write up. I also have a 99 and have had a problem with the hood latch not work as well, after pulling the lever and hearing a very faint pop I had to stick my fingers between the hood and fender to get the hood up. I followed Vipers directions and I not only got the hood latch to work but now the light in the front trunk lights again!
