Picking up a new '15 with 10 miles on Saturday:



So let's get to work!

Galfer sent me a sample of their black brake lines with black fittings, and it's a damn nice product. They're going to build my custom lines, and I'm also going to get rotors from them--they aren't cheap.

Autoglym makes some seriously good detailing products. I got wind they make silicone hose wipes for Samco, and found a good deal on them on eBay from the UK:



Since I'll be special ordering some Samco hoses, this will come in handy for keeping it showroom fresh!

Some exhaust ideas I'm thinking about. Definitely want to do something custom, and I think 3 rolled tips under the tail would be especially neat...

Looking a bit further, if we did the three tips under the seat, I could do brass tip inserts:



That would go fantastically with the rear shock, especially with the entire exhaust cerakoted black otherwise.
