You car is coming along well - only thing I dont understand is the complete uselessness of the fake BBK. I have the StopTech BBK setup on my Gen1 tC, and it is amazing. But, for someone that looks like their car(s) come together well, I hope that your fake brakes are just temporary. Not that a car the size of snail needs big brakes, but your kinda making it look more goofy IMHO drawing attention to something thats not "real". Even painted calipers would look better than fake BBK covers.

Everything else looks good though!

Thank you for the compliment. It is not my intention to make people think I've spend a grip of cash on a big brake kit. I enjoy the benefit of less brake dust on my wheels due to the caliper covers. As you say, my iQ would not benefit too much from a brake kit replacement. I passed on installing a larger brake system on my first gen xB after I saw Mike Ma almost flip his forward when he slammed on the brakes. LOL

The iQ is still at AirRunner. The body kit is painted and resting in the guest bedroom until the iQ is home.

My wife wasn't real happy I posted up that pic. LOL

I stopped by AirRunner today to check on the progress of the air suspension install. Going well, should be done by Saturday or Sunday.

The paddles and air lines being installed under the dash.



The tank and compressor.



Osam and Shin Okamoto, the brains and muscle behind AirRunner.
