  1. I finished my design! Im going to compare sendcutsend to local machinist for pricing here's how she looks with a caliper mounted https://photos.app.goo.gl/UhSrn5461KHvJsQa6 I'll rock these for a bit and later start on the ls430 caliper bracket in some time. I probably should have started to design with those as it may have been easier to make in fusion 😜
  2. Not OEM but I've found the blanks randomly at lowes
  3. Nice work, did you get that nice factory bend in to follow the profile of the two side trim pieces?
  4. ya, you are right, i didn't check first, they do have standalones but doubtful anyone has programming kit for it
  5. https://www.ebay.com/itm/134213441894?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=RfcINNRyTqS&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=kG6rHg9PQxm&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY
  6. Cool site, thanks. I'll see if they can do what I need
  7. Found a rotor catalog website. Saw Lincoln LS rotors looked to be similar, until i bought some and realized the website have overall height and not the height of the hat. More searching turned up 96 Ford Crown Vic rotors (early bbk threads mentioned these as possible) and some from a BMW. BMW lug pattern is different but Ford is the same. Since i was trying to work with stock rotors i need some minor tweaks to my design because I have interference between the caliper body and rotor. But making progress. https://photos.app.goo.gl/7JNiF3VoUsB4UxXz7 Once i have something close to good enough, I'll have a machinist cut it out of plate for me and I'll see what the minimum wheel spacer I can get away with is.
  8. Well, i have a workable design https://photos.app.goo.gl/PbD2xKg39FMMdahc8 Only issue is with OEM rotors, there's about 8mm of pad at the top that doesn't contact the rotors. https://photos.app.goo.gl/wAejnfVAKhHMJn9P6 Hard to get a good pic of it I can't find info on if it would a detrimental issue have the 8mm of pad at the top never wearing.
  9. Does anyone know which BMW rotors Oscar-The-Grouch used on his 12" BBK kit?
  10. A turbo 8 would be ideal, but if I was building and couldn't do the g54b for some reason, I would put in some variant of the 4g63, which also came on the car in other markets.
  11. Why didn't you buy the one off amazon
  12. Another thread indicates that they are the legion elite maxspeedingrods... Be better replacing them with concrete blocks
  13. To be honest, any SHP struts you get will be blown or useless. I would recommend to take a look at D2 Coilovers, K*Sport coilovers, or getting yourself some non-shp strut housings and sourcing new cartridges (I think Mookeeh may still have some on ebay). I moved from having Tokicos on ST springs to "Legion Elite" and promptly changing them for D2. The D2's are great. Cost slightly more than the "Legion Elite" but not much and are much higher quality.
  14. Isaiah took $220 MaxSpeedingRod Coilovers and [poorly] modified them to fit the Starion/Conquest. So you are riding on $220 coilovers. Some people have been happy with them. Some people not so happy. fixed that for you.
  15. Slow progress here. Everything is slightly off. Either I'm really bad at CAD (I am) or bad at measuring things (possible too). Every time I print out a bracket it's always slightly off, not from my model, but when I fit it on the car. Still working on it though
  16. I wish i could find 255/45/16 like i had on the car.
  17. Whelp, i just attempted to order from tire rack and they were very persistent that they didn't want to sell me two different rubber compound bridgestones. Not sure if they wanted to push me into the more expensive advans or Pirelli. I, myself, ended up with Toyo R888R in 245/45 and 225/45 I never drive the car so i should be fine with the 20k miles or so I hear i might be lucky to get out of them and never expect to be in the rain.
  18. I used gpopshop for my rebuild kit.
