I thought I concluded my story, but apparently not :D

I masked off the reflector plastic and back plastic to create a clean, straight line for the RTV sealant to go into. I squeezed a bead of the...

It's a 996 part, but you don't see too many of them for sale without damaged carbon fiber. A great alternative is to send a standard 3-spoke 996 wheel to Carsdream and they can rebuild it with the CF...

I suppose it depends on the sensitivity of the meter. In theory, a ceramic coating does add *some* thickness to the finish coat, but I'm not sure it will add a full micron. Why are you asking?

I'm not actually sure how to confirm it wasn't related to the DM flywheel too. The shop said the flywheel was quite worn, and they agreed it was ideal to replace it.

In what ways does a DMF "fail"?
