    Default New Winter Project

    Just bought a complete set of F355 red calipers, brake pads and drilled rotors, all with 7k total miles. Like new condition! Don't know if the rotors are the same as the F355 Fiorano.
    My calipers are fine(red). Pads have 33k miles so I will replace them. Have wanted the drilled rotors for a while.
    Should arrive end of week or early next week.

    Nothing wrong with your car, so you have to tinker, right Frenchman?
    I enjoy talking to you. Your mind appeals to me. It resembles my own mind except that you happen to be insane.

    Spent an hour yesterday chiseling the frozen snow bank blocking the F355.
    Warmed her up and took her out for a brief test drive.
    Brakes stop the same as my old set(Good) but look a whole lot cooler!
    Bypass valve appears to work as designed.
    Sticker expired. With a Nor'Easter expected Wednesday, who know when we will drive next!
    Next project: Sticky interior parts.

    Awesome! At least somebody is getting their projects done for the spring!

    Nor'easter??? Dammit. Congrats on the bypass valve! Sounds like a good test drive....you have to stomp the gas to test the valve and stomp the brakes to test the stop. I'll bet the car was enjoying a little breather from winter.

    Awesome. I bet you kept the top up for the ride, though!

    I've got two that need test drives. Hoping for a bit warmer weather tomorrow...
