Calipers now painted with VHT caliper paint, pads fitted too...



A quick pic of my Azevs over the top of the brakes, these are 17" rims to give an idea of the size, i think they fill the rims quite well.

"The word bespoke itself is derived from the verb to bespeak, to "speak for something", in the specialized meaning "to give order for it to be made".[1] The term bespoke in fashion is reserved for individually patterned and crafted men's clothing, analogous to women's haute couture,[2] in contrast with mass manufactured ready-to-wear (also called off-the-peg or off-the-rack). While widespread in the United Kingdom, the term is rarely employed in the United States, although it may be used by some in the high-end tailoring business." -wikipedia

Never would have guessed it with the context and word breakdown.

Yup. That is how the way I talk and stuff. *picks nose with one had and holds piglet with the other*

Very cool!! :thumbup

I just figured 'bespoke' was some uber-JDM company (or phrase) that 'everybody' knows about or something...kinda in the same realm as hellaflush... BUAH HA HA HA!!

Repeat after me:

"Done whittled me out some chunks of 'loomnum with summathem lil' yardbirds off the 'nammeled-over doohickey on the hood. Come out real purty. Better'n store-bought."

Optionally, you may spit for effect.

In related news, Google seems to be available to US users now. So that's a plus :thumbup

Yes, but did it mention the spit, or even the piglet? Some things get lost in translation. Get you a glass jar of corn liquor (preferably purchased from an unattended hollow tree) and listen to a couple of Hayseed Dixie songs and it'll all start to sound natural...

Hell's bells, that ain't a bad idear 'tall. There went my weekend :toast
