            Well they only had 1. They said their friend has one too, but they haven't got back to me on that. I would like 1 more. It would be nice to have 2 really straight ones up front. Can't stand feeling vibration in the steering wheel. :)

                Here's a few photos I took. I installed the door cards.

                    I'm starting to gather parts to renew the brakes. I got a pair of rebuilt front ATE calipers. The ones on there now are Girling. I read the ATE ones can use the brass bushings, but I've also read mixed reviews on those so maybe I'll just use the stock bushings. Since I have 15" wheels I've thought about getting a little bigger brakes too. I could get E30 M3 calipers for the rear and run the Z1 rotors, but then the bias might not be ideal without upgrading the fronts. The Z1 had regular E30 brakes on the front, but I'm not sure all the engineering/reasoning for that with the larger rear brakes. So I think I'll just keep the rear brakes stock, especially since regular E30 rotors are easy to come by and inexpensive. I think I might try the cryogenic rotors. I read they are less likely to warp and last longer. I'm a little undecided on the brake pads. I might try the new Centric PQ PRO pads. I haven't read any reviews for them yet though.

                          Anyone want to go for a swim? :P

                          I guess I'll have to get in the trunk and have someone spray water on it to see where it's leaking in. I hope they let me out after haha.

                            The one bad thing about centric rebuilds (I use them myself) is that they are completely uncoated. In other words, if you don’t want a rust colors caliper after the first time they get wet, you’ll need to paint or coat them.

                              Make sure to unclog the factory vents, on each side of the rear valance, about four inches behind the rear tire, directly in the center of the tray. Looks almost like a "v", and they are usually packed full with dirt or factory undercoating.
