Wanted to see what my RSe05s look like in silver before they get powdercoated. Luckily Home Depot Racing had Rust-Oleum Metallic Titanium Silver which matched my mirror caps pretty well. Unfortunately the color sprayed lighter than expected. When the wheels get refinished I'll likely go with less metallic and a shade or two darker.

How much does powdercoating 4 rims cost and what kind shop does that? Anyplace that does powdercoating, or an auto specific shop?

Diablo blade sliced through it like butter.

Next question, what are those DIY endlinks?

Whiteline “adjustable” and by adjustable they mean you can cut them until you get your desired height.

I’ll eventually upgrade to something else once I’m 110% sure I know what length I need for my ride height. As of now I’m still making adjustments here and there and they were only $60.

BEFORE AND AFTER ADDING THE CUTOUT EXHAUST. I already have 3 inch pipe full borla exhaust, happy with it, but when cruising around with my lady is too loud just to have some chill time. So this is the final end with stock muffle and cutout when I’m ready to let that rabbit loose 😈 IG mad_bunnymk7

Just put in a Powerflex dogbone street insert. Crazy vibrations at idle (900 rpm), especially with the AC on, but smooth from 1k RPM on. Shifting and power delivery have improved substantially, clutch take-up feels better. People say the vibrations calm down, I hope so.

Gonna do the cp-e 55 durometer mounts next, but I don't know when is appropriate. Stock mounts still seem fine. 29k miles.

Also did the Aerofabb splitter and hatch spoiler extension, which are great quality.

I would keep the stock mounts until they start getting bad. Mine lasted a little over 100,000 miles when tuned to 416 HP.

If it helps, my BFI dogbone DID get better after 1k - 1.5k miles.

That cutout is aimed directly at your gas tank. Fine if youre driving and the wind is moving that hot air... idle at a stand still for too long with that thing open and youre gonna burn a hole in your gas tank. Ive seen it happen.

after 400-500 miles that hybrid insert calms down.
