    Seriously.... I spent money buying the calipers, rebuild, powder coat, and even replaced a piston. So much money down the drain. Idk what went wrong. I'm not even gonna bother powder coating my new ones. Just gonna slap it on for that stock look. Don't want to deal with taking it apart again might mess something up. Yeah I'll for sure update some pictures when I get them on because I still have my day 1 pictures on there LOL and thanks! Sadly it's still sitting in my room.... been too lazy to install it

    Got these bad boys shipped to my house in 3 days. CarID was super quick with their shipping. I want to paint them to match my H22 valve cover but I need to call and ask if it will void the warranty. I pray to God that nothing goes wrong and I can do this swap fianlly..... sadly these ones say acura unlike the jdm ones I had. Oh well

    I can't paint them or grind acura off. If altered in anyway it voids the warranty. It's fine no big deal haha

    $307.66 but there's a $105 core deposit. So once I return my other calipers I will get refunded $105. About 100 a pop with 11 bucks for shipping. Me putting it on my accord voids warranty since it's not made for the accord but they won't know what car it's on hehe

    I'm hoping to install these either Monday or Tuesday. New coilovers should be here Wednesday :)

    Installed the drivers side and it looks sick! But as usual with the terrible luck that I have, the passenger caliper they sent me is a ****ed up one lol..... I ordered another one so I can get it asap then I will get refunded later.

    What year are these calipers from again? TL or RL?
