Worked on my BRZ this weekend, installing the Subaru 4/2 pot calipers, Stainless Steel brake lines and TRD lowering springs.
Car only has 10k Miles on it and found one of the rear struts leaking. #Pissed
Also found out I have the wrong caliper brackets for the rear. I guess KNS v2 and Kartboy v2 don't mean the same thing. Had to order the KNS ones
Finished the other set of calipers too.. These will be going up for sale soon, complete with brand new Subaru mounting bolts, Stainless Steel banjos, new copper washers and all new installation hardware. Also included are a set of generic rear caliper brackets that fit GC/GD rear uprights and some White Vinyl Subaru Stickers. Just add your own choice of Rotors and pads.
Test fitted cheapo Duralast brake pads. Need to remove them, grease everything up and reinstall.
Also planning on hand carrying this into Subaru and asking them to warranty it. Not holding my breath but if you don't ask you don't get.
So despite my body shop telling me that it would be at least two weeks before it gets painted and that they would call me to go in and approve all the body work before it goes to paint, I got a call a few days ago asking me what color I wanted to paint it bc it is sitting in the booth, waiting to have color sprayed on.
I went straight up there and found a few things I wasn't happy with but they promised to take care of it before it got painted.
I went up there again this afternoon to check the car out for myself. Most of the things that I asked to be done, were done but there were still a bunch of stupid things left on the car that will cause several areas to require redoing. Stupid stuff, like the door strikers were left on, it would probably have been quicker to remove them than to mask them off.
Anyway, it's hard to be mad when it looked as good as it did in 74F
There are still a few flaws in the paint (couple drips) that will be taken care of during the wet sanding stage and a few things that will require some repainting (around the door strikers), but overall I am very pleased with how it looked
So the camber plates, KNS caliper adapters and new OEM rear strut all arrived on Friday. Managed to get all of the Brake calipers mounted up on the BRZ, got all the new pads greased up and installed and bled them using one of those 'One man' bleeding pumps.
Guess which caliper is leaking
Plenty happy with the camber plates though
Test fitted a wheel to check for caliper clearance, lowering springs haven't done much for the fender gap
