Lightbulb Big Brake Kit Picture Thread!!!

Lets see everyone's BBK!!! Leave some info (brand, size, pots, pads) about the kit you're running as well.

I'm looking at getting the following;

StopTech Front & Rear Kit
- 14" (355mm) ST-40 4-Pot Front
- 13" (328mm) ST-22 2-Pot Rear
- Front & Rear Silver Calipers
- Slotted & Zinc Coated Rotors w/ Black Hubs

^^ I have had that exact set up on my car for the past 3 years (red calipers).. The calipers have some scrapes and scratches through the years but everything still works great..

A look through the years:

These are actually the 350z/G35c Brembo Gran Turismo kit, but they worked with my S14. May part these out soon.
