Installed my ACURA calipers!









Got it installed yesterday and its damn sweet!

Didn't need to change brake lines, the stock ones fitted perfectly. It did take me 2 days to figure out the bracket and then I googled it up, and got this pic



After that, took only a couple of hours to fab a pair.

The rotors I'm using are Runstop Big Brakes (made in thailand) 320mm

Wheels are chrome Rota P1s

You really should have painted them before they were mounted.

Nice work fabbing your own bracket though.

You will need bigger rotors to fit these, here's the v6 thread where I got the inspiration to do so:

I used Runstop 320mm rotors from thailand, custom bracket and about a day's worth of measuring and fabrication.

pretty seldom people here see chromed Rotas, they go "DAYUM!" first then look at the center cap, and go "S%^$T its ROTAS????"

I always get a laugh out of that
