Fitted the pagids today, not much to see, they're also yellow!
Instantly felt sharp just on leaving the road. A good sign. I headed to local test facility, and bedded them in as per Pagids instructions:
Impressions so far: HOLY CRAP these are powerful, considerably sharper than the EBC, better pedal feel, and whilst both pads could easily lock up the wheels at any speed, these just feel somehow more positive already. no overheating yet either, or nasty brake smell.
Further impressions to follow after a drive tonight, but early reports are very good.
I decided that with the outside of the car finally looking pretty again, the inside needed a mini refresh.
The footwells were looking horrible, and the grip tape I had put down looking well past it's best:
I whipped the seats out, hoovered it all out, scrubbed it, hoovered it again, keyed it up, cleaned it out, and threw about 5 coats of satin black in there.
As an extra measure, I also had some extra hard wearing clear coat I've used in the past, so I threw a few coats of that over the main footwell area too. it gives a slightly more glossy finish, but not a full gloss black, and it SHOULD be slightly more hard wearing than the plain black.
Whilst I was waiting for that to dry, I was bored, so decided to paint the footrest too.
And all back in, seems to tidy it all up nicely
