5% in the back, 15% up front

The calipers are black and shiny, you can see them great in the day, but the camera sux so I just took picks reall close to show that they were done lol, I did them with that duplicolour brush on stuff, looks pretty good, looks bumpy on the pic cuz A. there wet from the wash, B.I took the pic from like 10 inches away

Pedals are great, a little wider and i can heel toe (side of my foot) shift in them better :)

yeah the pedals look better in person, there not so "THERE".. if you know what I mean lol

plus they give the pedals a more "beefy" feel :) and yes there rock solid on there, they dont use those stupid tabs lol.

i highly doubt they can look any better in person. I have always thought of those screw/clip on pedals as a saftey hazard IMO.

The clamp on ones are a huge safety hazard.

I had them on my 02 Sunfire and when sister got it in 04 she wanted them left on because they looked nice. The day after she got her license she got in a accident because of the clip on brake pedal. Because it was wider then the pedal it bent came loose and rotated from her moving her foot and ended up over the gas. So when she hit the brakes she also floored it and caused her to back up over a curb and right in to a tree. Just missing a parked car.
It was 3K in damage to the car.
Plus her insurance went up.

The only pedals either one of will put on now are the bolt on ones.
The ones she has now you have to drill holes in the steel pedal and bolt them on.
These are what my last ones were and i would like them for the balt if i can get then with no name on them.
She also has these.



Also i like the black calipers.
I was going to make mine red.
But black might be better because i'm not doing the drums red.

good call on the rotor clean up willl do :)

the pedals have the option (holes) in them if you want to drill into the pedal and mount them... I'll probably do that

the pedals right now are solid though, I tightened the shit out of them, plus they have "sides" on them and they dont sit on the pedals, they sorta slide over them and wrap around them, I bolted them up and I tried like hell to move them around but there solid, I might look into drilling them though another project :cheesy:

I have the same pedals you have, but for an auto, and they are nice, but it just takes time to position them and to tighten them properly. I'm actually looking at the GM pedals as they are a direct fit to the stock pedals and look just as nice.

gas pedal is a whole new pedal assembly simply unbolt the 3 pain in the ass bolts than unplug the sensor and bolt it up and plug the sensor back in
brake and clutch are covers. there pain in the ass to get on.
i couldnt do it not even with the help of 3 other people so this local shop did it for 5 bux. had to have small fingers. i tore 3 of mine up trying to get it to work
