I have. The cracks were not even severe.
That means you don't track, bro
Haha certainly not for several months. Seriously though, the AP rotors are a work of art and ridiculously durable.

Did you catalog what the part lengths were for each of these? I looked at this last time I had the bumper cover off and couldn't figure out one of the bolt lengths and gave up

The bolts are bonded in. They are a lost cause unless you want to trim them. The big countersunk boi in the tow hook base goes all the way back to be flush with the crash bar base. You have to have a Allen key in it to get the bolt off, so the crash bar has to come off. It's about 10mm longer than oem, but still less weight. I may try to trim it because it's bugging me.
I have six more of the M12's for the front crash bar, plus two for the center exhaust mount at the differential.

The base comes off easily, and that's the next project.
Hardware for the lower air box mount is also going on, as well as the expansion tank and power steering hardware.
I forgot to get the center strut brace bolt off at the firewall, but it's a decent size and will be in the next order.

Revshift transmission mount - 80A or 95A?

AKG 95A diff mount
https://www.akgmotorsport.com/produc...yurethane-95a/

Subframe: I'll pick a solid one, maybe Turner
I went with 75D (aka delrin) for the motor and trans mounts because I wanted something as hard as possible that still had a tiny bit of "give" (from the perspective of an engine shaking around at 8k rpms). I would suggest 95A if you don't mind a bit of mechanical engine noise, 80A otherwise.

I went solid metal for the diff and would NOT recommend that for a street car, 95A will be plenty stiff.

thank you! I think I'll do 80A on transmission and try to dig around for something 80A-like for diff. Still planning solid on rear subframe. Car's not stripped yet, so still tip-toeing the line on full race parts.

I would very warmly welcome any recommendations to minimize NVH for the diff mount while providing OE or better mounting!

A makrolon sunroof would look sweet.

welp, i'll just put my thoughts into text- i was thinking about moving the audio amp and communication box from the rear of the car into the rear seat tubs and doing some sort of bracket. then doing some sort of floor (maybe not the floor).

on the other hand, i'm not going to be tracking very much over the next year or so, so there isn't a huge push to get rid of the radio. so all this moving stuff and taking out usable amenities isn't really needed.
