    And here’s a comparison. It’s exact length:
    Now that you mention it, I think I've already done it. I know the original bolt had to be drilled out.

    Refinished Rims

    I mentioned a few pages back that I was getting my original 135 rims re-finished. I was able to pick them up and get them mounted last weekend.
    They were straightened, powder coated in what I believe is called brilliant silver (very close to the original color) and had a new set of Michelin AS3+ mounted on them. I also put a set of the newer style center caps on them last night.

    +1 that brilliant silver has some nice depth. Really modernized the look of the 135's.

    Thanks everyone! I think that they came out great as well. When I dropped them off the owner showed my a few sample rims to get an idea what colors would work best. The other colors were either too dark or had too much metallic. This color definitely has more depth and shine without being to much of a departure from the original color.

    approaching 80K miles and decided to change my plugs today. They look clean, and I think they were original. But the very first one scared me when it took a ton of force to break it loose. When it finally did break loose (but still in the well), I heard a crack and looked in and saw the broken porcelain. Got the shop vac out and using a small pipe sucked out the debris before pulling the plug out. Good news is the other 5 took no effort at all

    I also replaced my 6MT Alcantara shift boot today. My wife thought mine was a bit faded. And if Mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy!

    When the new 1 arrived, there's really not much difference between them, but I put the new one on anyway. Anyone need a shift boot in pretty good condition? I can share pictures if needed
