    Interesting, never really thought about it, but makes some sense. yes, any kind of racing really is a money suck.

    Took a page out of Danís playbook today. Rather than spending ~$250 a piece on new rear upper control arms, Iím going to restore mine. The drivers side was far worse than the passenger side, so I sanded then wire brushed it, before putting two coats of rust converter. The passenger side was far better, only little bit of paint had flaked off so I just cleaned it up and primed it.

    Looking good. You'll win that $1 bet.

    My passenger side strut mount is mint. My Girlfriend's Mother must've had it replaced before, it's the drivers side one thats rotten on mine.

    same with me. Driver side control arm was the one that needed rust converter. Strut mount was hollow. Passenger side control arm was fine and the strut mount was barely beyond saving.

    Knock on wood today should be the day I can ship my bags and then turn around and spend that money on brake parts. Coilovers are on their way, as are new rear strut mounts to replace what was left of mine. Wasnít going to do a rear BBK but I found S4 calipers at a price I couldnít refuse. Figure just bite the bullet now when I donít have another semester of college to pay for for a while and just have the satisfaction of having it all done. Also on the fence about powdercoat, really want to get it done and have it look nice but the quote I got seemed high to me ($250 for a set). I suppose thatís always something I could go back and redo but knowing me Iím not going to want to take stuff back apart just for that. Iíll shop around some more.

    the remains of the strut mount.

    ready to package and ship

    For a plug and play rear "bbk" I think its worth it. Just stepping up to vented in the rear will help. If you find someone who has any more rust free rear strut mounts lmk, I need the drivers side please.

    Put a request in the IBS spreadsheet, Matt, memo, or any of the other SoCal guys should be able to find one Iíd think.

    I snagged mine for a little extra with my coilovers but I was ready to do that if I didnít get them with.

    Went to Milwaukee today to trade my RNS-E for some S8 calipers with a well known B5er (needinganaudi). Identical in size to 17Zs but lower profile and can supposedly hold a bigger rotor. Hope to order parts Monday and put it all together this coming weekend, but thatís probably a pretty ambitious goal.

    Spent the morning ordering parts, hope to get most, if not all of them by the weekend and get it all installed

    -slotted/drilled front and rear B7 S4 rotors
    -Front apikol 993 brackets
    -rear apikol B7 S4 brackets w/ braided lines and hardware
    -B7 RS4 front braided lines
    -another B6 axle and wheel bearing (the driver side are relatively new on the subframe I bought
    -new rear control arm bushings
    -front lower control arm bushings
    -rear B5 S4 calipers and carriers
    -C5/S4 wheel speed sensors

    Ordered previously
    -KW V3
    -new rear shock mounts
    -S8 brembo calipers

    Still need to order pads but undecided on which ones. Leaning Hawk at this point. Otherwise I'll just get something in town the day I install it.

    Dan, we should just combine our threads and call it ďRock and Danís painting shenanigansĒ lol.

    That being said, productive day while I wait for parts. Sanded, primed, and painted the B6 sway bar and mounts. Then completely disassembled the subframe.
