Damn PD on calipers?! That's a new one to me! Sounds like PD is superman and can do it all lol

Anyway, up at school now in Wisconsin, took her 1200 miles across the country from jersey to wisco and she ran beautifully... Few days later checked my oil and I literally had 0 left. Good thing I checked it. I mean literally it burned so much that it didn't even come up on the stick.... So I poured 6 qt in and now she's back to where she should be.

Always a good feeling when others appreciate the hard work put in to making our 6's look nice. Had my neighbor pull me aside and start complimenting my ride which I just say back and enjoyed the compliments hahah

I finally got my rear LEDs installed. Would have been sooner but i had to do some work on a friend's p.o.s Altima to get it running again.

And damn, here is a quick video I did. @kANAkSz I thinks a full purple interior might look pretty SICC...

This is the type of LEDs i'm using. They are made for industrial signs (think department store signs). They are insanely bright and made to last.
They are a bit difficult to get ahold of though. I think they are sold by the 100ft. I was lucky enough to get them from where I work.

That does surprise me that it would hold up on calipers. Seems they would burn it right off....crazy.
If it is flammable that's far to close to a rubber brake line which could also go up if the heat dissipates toward the interior of the car, especially if you are running steel wheels there is so much wheel face the heat would push out the other direction. Burn through the brake line and dump all your brake fluid would be a bit of a problem.

Considering your brake fluid boils at 375F it'll just dry out and fall off. Seriously doubt it has enough volatile vapor content to do a Hindenburg in your wheel.

Its not like the caliper hits INSTANT high temps. Most do not drive in a manor to even raise the temps....

I don't know what temp the brakes heat up to but when I just replaced my rear calipers and bed my brakes I went to check how hot they were and make sure they looked good and the rotors will burn your fingers. I know I had less heat doing the same thing with my 18" rx-8 5 spokes rims vs oem 16" 5 spokes. The 18"s have more clearance around the caliper.

I would be worried if the plasti dip was flammable with a fire in the wheel well.
