lets just say that if i get rear ended its not going to be pretty lol


need to take out the rear tail lights





stock beam removed



jdm vs. stock beam



actual jdm beam weight...4.5lbs!!!



Overall install wasnt to bad. You cant take the bumper cover off while its on the car, you need to take the whole cover/beam off at the same time then you can take the cover off.

The jdm beam is nothing more than a bracket for the cover to snap onto to hold it in place...no crash protection whatsoever.

did some more weight reduction today. since i'm going with the hydrolic ebrake i dont need all the regular ebrake hardware that is wrapped around the hub. we took off a good 2lbs per wheel and that doesnt count the things like the ebrake brake lines so we are looking at around 5lbs total.

this pic shows the ebrake hardware that is on the hub


actual weight reduction per wheel


the hub looks so much cleaner after taking it all off

you should spray the undercarriage white while you got all the guts off as well. Might help a bit with the rust in MN too...

i think down the road i'm going to try and put together a total underbody kit for it. that will help with rust and aerodynamics.
