Re: Tyler's "Better late than never" 2004 SG 6MT Slicktop Journal

Awesome! Glad to hear they were improved. Also nice choice Jescar makes some good stuff.

Re: Tyler's "Better late than never" 2004 SG 6MT Slicktop Journal

I use it at about 70% speed on my Flex 3401 and always for good results but itís a different machine. It orbital with forced rotation. So like in between a DA and Rotory. So it is hard to advise on...

Re: Tyler's "Better late than never" 2004 SG 6MT Slicktop Journal

Yeah Tyler I would step down to a 3 inch if you have the backing plate and pads for it. DA polishers can be pretty slow especially since I have no idea the power level of yours. Like you mentioned I...

Re: E46 M3 vs. 987 Cayman S

Mind to share your thoughts on the 981 CS/GTS vs the E46 M3?

Highly considering picking one up either in addition or to replace my E46. Think there is reason enough for both in a stable of cars?...

Looking good Tyler! Nice choice on the FG400. There aren’t many compounds I would use stronger than that. So if you have deeper stuff just take a few more passes with a fresh pad. It does finish...

Re: CF Hood for E46 M3

I have held one of these uninstalled before it is indeed quite light. If I wanted some GTR style venting it would be the hood to go with.

Re: CF Hood for E46 M3

Their quality isn’t that good. If you are doing it for weight you honestly aren’t saving much. Our hoods are already aluminum.

Re: PFC V3 Rear rotors

I may be interested. I wonder if the Streamline BBK people would be interested as well. I think they talked about using CSL sizes rotors now. Not sure what they plan for the rear.

Same setup. Previous owner put it in. Over time mine has developed side to size play. Really considering replacing them with AKG.

Oh also it has developed a squeak. :(
