What did you do to your SS today?

Recommended Posts

I tried to race a newer Malibu and got burnt so bad I had to turn down a random dirt road to stop looking at his tail lights lol

You sure it wasn't a Chevy SS they kinda look the same :)

Added new GM rims wrapped in new Goodyear Eagle Sport tires. Installed new powder coated calipers and ACDelco Professional epoxy coated slotted rotors. Looking quite clean if I say so myself.1e38ecf76f55c0ce110a141a3fa9500c.jpg8c767a47ddf5cddeb28f4e2183a42cfd.jpg

AC Delco makes slotted rotors? :huh: lol didn't know, how are they? I'm looking to upgrade my brake system with something else but Baer and Brembo are out of the equation because of not in my budget..

Well I do have EBC pads and rotors for sale for $50 plus shipping - can't get much cheaper than that.

 

Baer and Brembo are cheap compared to the Wilwood set I can't afford - $4k an axel!

Lol well Baer has a kit that costs that much I think it's the Extreme 1 or something like that it comes with the 15' rotors and 6 piston calipers, Baer does sell the Eradispeed rotors for 695 for front and 645 for rears I figure that's a start

Gave mine a really good bucket wash in the bay early yesterday morning. It's been dirty too long but I've been daily driving it to/from work and have a ridiculous schedule. Can't wash in my driveway as the water leaves spots immediately and no shade to wash in. Anyway it's raining today so that ends the little drought we were in... FML :) anyway it gave me a chance to address little minor scratches here and there once the truck was clean.

Thanks! I still gotta give the wheels a hardcore polishing and the truck needs wax. What I really need is to solve my issues with washing at home. With no shade the vehicle dries too fast to avoid spots, plus the water quality sucks (we even give the cats bottled water! No lie)

You need a reverse osmosis filter for the cars. Griots Garage has one but I think its a little pricey......

I've been washing mine at night, been hot here, as long as I can shammy it off before it dries I get no spots. Good wax helps also.
