Wilwood's On Car And Decisions...

I promised some of you I would put up pictures of the brakes by Monday (today) and I will. But I don't approve of these pictures due to the weather here in Texas (Ice storm this weekend) and it’s taken in a Wal-Mart parking lot. I had no choice! So when the better weather comes I will post up some better pictures.

Before you post up a comment- (Please look at my Profile)
Yes it is lowered and will be lowered this Summer-Fall.
Also I am in the process of blacking out my headlights Spring-Summer.

Now the main decision is about my rear disc brakes coming soon. I have purchased some Rear SSBC Big Brake Kit (I think I will be the only one with these on 7thgencivic.com). 12" Rotors by 1" and signal piston calipers. I want the rear brakes to stand out like the front ones.... So Question- What color should I paint my rear calipers? Right now they have no paint and are a nice looking metallic gold metal. Colors-- Red, Black, Silver, or stay like they are? I just need to know before putting them on.

Here are some pictures to help decide what color....







Good comments and bad comments/opinions about the car are welcomed! Enjoy!

that looks good man, and as for my old kit that I sold to you I would say you will have a better look leaving them black due to how the rear caliper is made. or you coudl go red for them to stand out but it will not look quite as sexy as the red wilwood Hope you enjoy the kit that I never got around to putting on.

So your gonna have Wilwoods on the front and SSBC on the rear? I'm not feeling the mix sets on the car. How much did you pay for the SSBC? If its more than $549 shipped then i would say get ones that match.

That would have been a good color to do… didn’t think of that one.

$350 Shipped… And that is a long story. But with a little TLC and elbow grease… perfect.

Yes I will have Wilwood’s in the front and SSBC in the back. I paid $400 even from member “eye_see_you”. He never used them and sold it to me. Brand new they are $795.00 on the SSBC website. lol… I understand if you not feeling the mixed set but nobody can tell because there are no markings / labels of SSBC on them. So they will look like the SI conversion but with a lager rotor and bigger caliper.

But yeah if there were markings / labels I couldn’t mix them either IMO. I just couldn’t pass up these upgrades on such a low price…

Wilwood’s= $350 shipped (used) ($650.00 (new) +shipping)
SSBC’s= $400.00 picked-up ($795.00 +shipping)
Red Caliper Paint= $30.00
Labor= $0.00

Total= $780.00 <--- couldn’t pass that price up!

Basically the rear SSBC set is the components off a late model Integra if you did not know. I sold the kit due to selling my civic and getting my rsx-s otherwise I gave him a great deal

lol… I will try to come this Sunday but I don’t know if I can show it off yet. It’s kind of embarrassing because it needs new brake pads and they squeal really badly. Actually I bought the pads off of fastbrakes.com (the same one you were wondering if they were good or not) and they are slow on processing the order. But I didn’t know were else to get Wilwood brake pads. Also if the weather is bad on Sunday I don’t think I will show but the weather is suppose to clear Saturday with a high of 64.

It was a great deal! I am surprised that no one else took up on it before I did. Thanks.

Yeah I am kind of leaning toward the red caliper in the rear. And like I said before, nobody will even tell the difference on the brands. Actually they look just like the ones in the picture above that “eye_see_you” posted.

I still don't know about that choice with the rear. You should have saved up just another $150 and got the Wilwoods to match, would have been sick. But i still like the front ones.

Okay I might be missing something here please help me understand... Save a $150 more for what? Wilwood Rear brakes(I don't think they make them for our civics), SSBC front brakes to go with the rear, or SI conversion? Not beeing a smart as$ just trying to understand what you meant...

It's lined up correctly. Yes there is a lip on these kinds (Tsunami) of front bumpers. There is about a one inch lip in front of the headlight. Thanks for the complement.

Is the SSBC a rear disc conversion, or do you need the SI's rear disc setup already and upgrade to the SSBC brakes.
