    I have a nice little stack of parts that I need to send to a powdercoater. Does anyone have any good recommendations for where to go near Bellevue/bothell/Seattle?

      Which machine shop does all of the PRO3 motors? I remember it being a topic of discussion here somewhat recently, but cannot for the life of me find the post. Thanks in advance!

          KD doesnt do the machine work. He outsources to an oldschool guy in Renton. Or at least he used to a few years back.

            Sure do lol. I will have to reach out and have him examine how flat the head is and compare it to his first girlfriend.

            Thanks!

                    ?

                    Quick question. Got a set of XXR wheels the other day thru them on the daily not knowing I needing to run hub rings. found out real quick because there was a major vibration/shimmy feel at above 45mph in my steering wheel and front wheels. Had em on for a day drove maybe 40 miles... Anyways thru my old wheels back on. (keep in mind there was no vibration or shimmy prior to these XXR wheels) and you guessed it now the vibration is still there I'm on stock wheels now. So wtf. Did I break something or what?

                        There isn't ONE shop that everyone uses..

                        Depends on where they are located (Portland, Spokane, Seattle..etc.) also depends on what they are having done.

                        There is some people who assemble their own motors, others who pay someone else to do it, and a smaller minority who just get junkyard motors and call it a day.

                        I've done my own machine work and balancing to engines when I had access to that sort of equipment, but now, I usually just stick to rerings and freshening up.

                          Either they rub calibers, strut tube, are not balanced, or are bent. You might Jack car up, spin wheels. See if perhaps you warped a rotor, or caliper seized or something.

                            Yup yup I did just that when I changed back to the wheels I had on prior to the XXRs. I did do this at night time tho I'll check again. I'm thinking maybe I warped a rotor or the caliper issue cause I have my old wheels on now and it still shakes. I knew those wheels were a bad idea.. Thanks man.

                              You get what you pay for , for sure. That's why I like OEM wheels, I've seen xxrs literally break away from car. I looked closely at wheel, there was bubble is the spokes from shitty cast job

                              No problem

                                Any source for a decent set of sport seats? - I see the CL add for $900.00 I think it's overpriced.
