Yesterday I vacuum tinted all of the halos including the 1st set that I had posted. I redid them because I had gotten much better after doing 8 more lol. Anyway, the table works great and the process is extremely smooth compared to the traditional way of tinting them by hand. I was able to do all 10 halos in about 2 hours vs spending 30-60 mins on each one. I also finished up the indicator panel for the interior of the car. All wires are ran from the trunk to the engine bay and the only thing left for me to do is to build the lights and do the wet side of the connections (waterproof connectors in the engine bay) I will meet my deadline!!

And then the work I did for the indicator panel. This is the stock radio tape deck insert plate.

I could have spent more time body working the panel but it's fine for now just to get everything up and running. I can always make another when I'm not on a time crunch.

Ordered a set of Yokohama Advan Sports for the ride. The Michelin Pilot Sport A/S3 have given up the ghost after only 27,000mi on them. Very disappointing. However, with the warranty pro-rate, the new Yokos will only cost me $500 out the door. Sadly, I could only pro-rate three because I had to replace one last month due to road hazard. Otherwise, would have only cost $400 to replace all four.

Tried the Conti DWS06 before and they were good but were toast at 35K. Tried the Michelins and final verdict is they're overpriced. We'll see how well the Yokos do the next couple of years.
