    I had a crunching noise while reversing hoping it hasn’t the bearings turned out to be the pads so bam done. Slammed both sides in with pin grease and new sliders.

    Also the garage got cleaned up there was a lot of debris everywhere from moving the junk Kia parts around now they are gone.

    The pictures that load when I try to view those attachments are hilarious.
    One is a picture of a dog humping Vick with the caption that every dog has it's day.

    What did the stealership ever say about the rust on the door?

    Rotor looks moderately trashed, any reason you didn't change the rotors as well? No vibration from them?

    lol yeah on the photos...

    they are going to replace the door i just have to bring it in.

    rotors are fine for another set of pads most of what you see has already cleaned up. i'll replace em next time. its a side effect of getting things hot. too hot.

    Sorry for the lack of cleanliness. Our last event was at a lot that had tons of dust!

    You know, for as many track days as you have done with this car.. it's been incredibly reliable. I'm impressed.

    Thanks! Me too!

    The Veloster community is also impressed, a few of the veloster and hot hatch challenge series cars sponsored by Pierce Motorsports have fallen with less.
