Nice job with the wrap on the power steering tank, very clean. Quick question. I see that your running the ST45 rear brake kit. I was wondering what pads you are using. I have the kit but I am having a hard time finding pads for it. Thanks.

@ChriZTT: sorry bro can't help you out with that since i'm still running on my first set of pads the car has around 21000 km on the clock :P but as far as i recall StopTech used the same pads as Porsche do on some of there cars!?!?!? but that's just as far as i can recall

No problem, other than that Z of yours needs to be driven more! 13,XXX miles is way too low LOL. Your right about Porsche using the same pad.

Here's some reference material that I've gathered through many conversations with a few vendors as I tried to figure it all out. For the ST45 -- 63.100.0609 is the pad part number. I've heard of a few people that use an ST40 pad in the ST45 caliper (might be because the pads for the ST45 are so expensive in comparison) and although the ST40 pad fits, there are some dimensional differences between it and the ST45 pad. Specifically the width of the pad compound.

Here's a visual:

Nice to see you're still active with this platform. How hard was it getting the Billion tank on the stock bracket?

Hey Kwame what's up how is your car coming along together?!?! really have no clue how hard it'll be to get it installed...hopefully not too hard but i'm planing on making another bracket for the tank so hopefully that would fix that problem

thanks G4nismo!
all parts are authentic not feeling buying replicas. the fitment was good (as to expect on authentic parts). i had my OEM spoiler removed and the holes welded and the trunk resprayed , so i had to drill new holes into the trunk to mount the new spoiler.....so i'm not 100% sure about that! but other than that it really fits pretty good.

since the carbon fiber parts still not done yet (due to no time )
i'll keep you guys hopefully happy with some pics of the other (very expensive) "project" car....my NA Supra. been super busy over the summer time with getting rid of the rust it had, also ordered some Shine Auto Ridox side skirts and installed the jdm OEM rear add ons.



pretty flush fitment for most Supra guys , but i like it!


and the christmas gift i gave to myself this should look/fit the OEM interior so well.
