Long overdue SilverSurfer update...

So I havent really posted anything in awhile so I figured its time.
I finally got around to putting on my Akebono's and Stillens this weekend.
I also got the Eagle-eye LED "tinted" Tails, LED third Brake light, I de-badged her and added a new V8 badge to the rear, fixed: LDP vent vaulve cracked hose(causing p0455), and all the bolts holding the exhaust shields up were shot and it was hanging so I fixed those too. I also painted the calipers with G2 caliper paint(red), which is an apoxy resin which rocks!
I, like many of you on here, was on the fence about the LED tails, but after getting these I would suggest them to everyone. They are awesome and Im disappointed I didn't get them earlier. I modified them a little by adding a chrome turn signal bulb and brighter Sylvania reverse bulbs. Here are some pics of the recent upgrades.

Re: Long overdue SilverSurfer update...

I don't mind the v8 badge.

The tails look awesome, I need to get me a set.

Re: Long overdue SilverSurfer update...

G2 caliper paint really is the best there is out there for DIY IMO. Its so glossy and stupidly easy to clean. Nice choice!

Those tail lights look really, really good! I need to upgrade my reverse bulbs with brighter ones cause I can't see crap in the dark - even with the brakes on.

If you like the v8 badge that's all that matters IMO.

Oh, and your dub looks almost as clean as mine!

Re: Long overdue SilverSurfer update...

I do like the brakes and also the tails are great. The V8 is not my style, but that is a matter of personal taste. (The V looks like half of the Citroen badge, but then upside down)
Your paint looks great, but take care of the 2 rust spots on the rear gate close to the left tail.
