Did you ever put the soundproofing over the back seat? How is the droning?
No I never had a chance to do the sound deadening under the seats. I don't even know if I have enough left, I thought I did but looked it over again and I am second guessing myself.
I am selling my J's exhaust for a quieter one anyway unfortunately. Looking into the Apexi N1-X or AWE Touring.

Clean pictures! What kind of camera do you have? Been looking into photography as well. Just haven’t bought anything yet.

Going to give a bit of feedback since installing the Hasport mount. I must say you can feel slight vibrations in wheel and pedals at idle and at the beginning of acceleration. Honestly it isn't' bad at all I would recommend the 62a for anyone looking for a bit more throttle response but not the annoyance of vibrations constantly.

As for my IAT since installing the PTP blanket, not much change only a few degrees, but it is also 40+ Celsius here this week.

Now the Hawk pads are a damn blessing! Little to no brake dust at all!!!!! so freaking happy, my wheels have been brown constantly. As for stopping power feel the same as stock, maybe on track you would feel more a difference in hard braking but for daily driving feels the same.

Not much for updates, switched back to my thermal exhaust and driving the car daily rain or shine. It will be going to body shop next week to fix a few of the paint flaws.

Still have my J's Racing exhaust for sale $2000cad plus shipping.

Haven't been doing to much with the CTR lately, been busy. I did purchase a used OEM blue dust cover, should arrive this week. I will update you guys with some feedback on it. I was curious myself if it was similar material to the OEM s2k cover I use to have.

My car will be going into storage at the end of October early November weather permitting. I bought a winter beater so I wouldn't ruin this car in the salt. Sad to store it so soon :( summer just flew by...

Couple of shots from last weekend. Car is very dirty lol

Received my dust cover yesterday, lucked out and found a used one for cheap. I must say it's not quite as thick or heavy compared to my S2000 cover but the quality is good and the inside material is nice and soft, I think it may be some kind of fleece. Storage for EvilR soon :(

Never thought I would have to post something like this, but was having a bad day yesterday and to top it off I curbed my wheel. Parking lot incident, guy was in the middle of the parking lot I tried to go between him and the curb, obviously I miss judged it and clipped my rear passenger wheel. Woman driver I know... but hey it's the first time this has happened in my 15 plus years of driving LOL.. Worse part is my husband was flipping out at me, I was like it's my car don't worry about it!

Now I am on the hunt for a replacement wheel. I just need one, I already have my supplier looking but he isn;t sure if he can source one out.

If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated! I need a 18x9.5 +38 in Eternal Blue Pearl Gram Light 57CR.

I suppose you guys will want to see the carnage pic so here it is! Yep all the way around, may as well hit it good if your gonna do it haha fuck...

That sucks!! There is no way to fix it?
Yes I would assume so, but to match the color would be near impossible one would think. It would bother me if one wheel was not the same color.
