Re: RR's '99 coupe EX-L

Clean as ever. Strange seeing it without the Works.

Wasn't it your car that went through the bird version of D-Day a year or two ago?

Re: RR's '99 coupe EX-L

Thank you. Yea I miss the fitment of the Works but not cleaning them.

Haha yes it was the victim of a vicious hate crime. Neverforget.

Re: RR's '99 coupe EX-L

Rotora BBK finally let go, rotors cracked clean through. They had a good run, bought the kit used in 2010. Factory front brakes are back on now, car lost a little flair sadly.

Sucks because the calipers are still good, and pads are still available I think. It's the rotor that is the problem, I have searched high and low for a solution but nothing has materialized. I might try spacing them since they are 2pc and see if the 350Z rotors people are using with the RL Brembo's might work. But for now, stuck with these nice paperweights.

Otherwise this car is still going strong at 209k miles. Recharged the A/C recently and one of the front sway endlinks broke so I have some Moogs to replace them with. Climate control unit is faulty I think, sometimes I can only get cool or hot air depending on its mood. Swap is still fun and problem free at 117k miles. Clearcoat failure is happening in a few areas, wish I had money sitting around to get the body restored fully.

Re: RR's '99 coupe EX-L

Sad to hear about the BBK, but 8 years out of a used kit is not bad lol. As for the climate control controls, I have a spare 01-02, since I believe you swapped to 01-02. If you didnt, I have 98-00 ones too. If you want one, text me.

Re: RR's '99 coupe EX-L

^Might take you up on the 01-02. Trying to remember if I can just plug in the 98-00 to make sure that is actually the problem.

If you didn't cut the plug, I don't see why you couldn't
