Rears are done - I decided NOT to paint the rear calipers...didn't want to wait another day to let the paint dry...

Compared to the front brakes the rear brakes are a PITA!!! Why? Because the emergency brake cable assembly you have to disconnect and then reconnect!

You mean for painting? if spraypainting, yeah for sure, but for changing pads and discs, definitely no need. I see small differences to the 2nd generation. The bracket to hold the two pads are not there in the 2nd gen. Rest looks quite the same. (I'm just comparing these, because 1st generation has drums for the handbrake).

Got the Evilla Motorsports axle-back exhaust installed. Nice performance sound!

The resonator is free-flowing:

Comparison of factory exhaust and Evilla Motorsport's exhaust:

Installed (on ramps still):

See if this works (thanks to Acura Kai):

I am not crazy about the look of the exhaust tips. The factory ones look better. Or they should have done quad tips like the k5 GT's.

I like them. Supposedly they are in-work on a quad tip, but I haven't heard anything more.

Hey @ForteSX2.4 , I see you have some sort of extenders on your "flappy paddles". Where would one acquire these? I love the manual mode with a DCT, but the paddles are comical in size, I don't hold the wheel in a way that makes them easy to reach, and the directions on the shift lever are backwards, which infuriates me to an unreasonable degree.
