    David,

    I'm not attacking you personally. I'm giving you feedback about your consistent online behavior to NOT accept a contrary opinion, despite what you said above. You keep repeating wrong...

    Who are you talking to? At this point, I'm not taking any brake pad advice from you as it's nonsense. You said twice to stay away from ceramics. That's ridulous. Do you know that DMC sells ceramic...

    Who knows.. He's likely confusing them with semi-metallic pads. Everybody makes errors, but when someone disagrees with me, I stop, go back and check my facts and consider what has been said. I...

    David, If you are addressing me, I most certainly know that I have ceramic pads. I find it pretty ridiculous that you would suggest that any of us that mentioned them "probably" don't have them.

    I...

    Excellent! Yeah, in my opinion, ceramic pads are totally worth the extra price.

    Nice work! I see you went with the SS pistons. Me too. I agree with Mike Ward. That's the order that I bled them in and it worked like a charm. Like you, I was bleeding a completely dry, refurbished...

    I'll have to disagree on avoiding ceramic pads. I have now clocked 100,000 miles on my Magnum with ceramic pads. They stop great and are quiet. I only had to replace them once at 60,000 miles. I paid...

    Sure. The rocker switch shown below is just the plastic switch that you rock forward or back to unlock/lock the car from the inside:

    Hi. There are 2 coils in each one, one for unlock and the other for lock. My understanding is that the 2 locks are slaved together so when you press unlock on the rocker switch or turn the key, both...

    That is a nice accurate summary of ownership, and elegantly told. Nice work Michael! I enjoyed the subsequent stories shared as well.

    As for me, I came into ownership by looking for a sports car...

    If you find that you are not able to repeat the issue, I bet the hot car in front of you overwhelmed the cooling capacity.
    I'd replace /fix the smaller fan as perhaps that one helps the system...

    I found in order to deep clean, a microfiber cloth wrapped around a wooden paint stirrer (with a squarish end) and your favorite/appropriate wheel cleaner provided enough leverage to scrub the build...

    Good suggestions so far. Also, check the condition of the 2 connectors that attach to the otterstat. Mine were corroded when I first got my car, and it was doing the same thing as yours. To clean...

    Welcome back Shep!

    Sometimes life knocks you down, but the ones that get up, brush themselves off, and carry on as best as they can deserve a lot of respect in my opinion.

    Thanks for sharing...

    My next step was to remove the 8 M6 bolts and using a rubber mallet I gently tapped the cover loose. There was minimal oil in the compressor, yet it was good to see that...
