Okay thank you, I will be researching that tonight. It's just weird that the fender one's work perfectly fine without tripping it...

I took advantage of the nice weather to finish up this V4 Bumper:









For comparison:



Also did the fog covers, but I am debating on using them:





And this stuff ready to be installed:



Those tiny front rotors were very light, coming in at around 11 lbs. each. I also have the JDM front beam to use with the bumper, so much weight will be shaving off...

Ehhh...I'm still debating, I think I like the V1 RA rawness of it without them-at least for summer driving. I have backing plates and crystal clear foglights for it, which I will probably install next fall.

You talkin the Kouki's Georgy? I've wanted a set of those for years, but they're so priced gauged I was never able to justify them. Also, they aren't period correct for it. I like the smaller OG fluted ones, and then maybe do a multi-color overlay on em'.

Smallest vented rotors in history have been installed:

So in my mind:

The vented rotors (while helping with heat dissipation) are about 2 lbs. lighter/each then the oem ones for (4) lbs. of total weight shavings.

Alloy LCA's are around 3 lbs. lighter/each, (6) lbs. total. JDM front bumper beam is about (12) lbs. lighter.

Chyaaa 22 lbs. of weight loss is nothing to be ashamed of!

Common math mistake easily made.

Your arms are unsprung weight. That equates to more savings.

And them rotating rotors? I think you will like the math better after you factor in the rotational mass weight loss.

BTW my comment was talking about the shoes you got, some meaty looking kicks
