    Hey man. It was fun wheeling with you at the last run. Hope you had a good time I know I did, other than the missing side mirror.

    I decided against Dupe-me-color this time, and went with some rustoleum metallic silver. Matches way better this time.

    Thinking I'm going to do the piece around the center console now, just because the new so shiny! And maybe even mask off and do the door panels.

    Chopped the resonator and have a pretty ghetto downturn setup right now. Will post pictures tomorrow if I remember.

    Edit: I remembered 4 days late, but remembered nonetheless!

    Got those TRD Brake pads and 2 new front calipers on. Look at that hot red brake pad paint. And notice the difference in front and rear calipers, lol.

    So I brought her home today after being gone for about a month. When I started her and drove her to get on the tow truck/moved around at the parent's house for parking, etc. it was no longer knocking? I know it's not like magically fixed or something, but the truck didn't knock a single time in the 20ish minutes of running/driving. Just an interesting occurrence imo, any ideas why that is?
