Yeah I know but I don't have one and the torque wrench was the only wrench I had with a longer handle. Dumb move on my part. Now I have to go buy a new torque wrench and a breaker bar.

Sounds like a fun weekend of installing, the way I read the last bit made me think you were going to paint the helmet CSG, would be interesting. What are you painting? Side markers, grill stripes?

I will be installing everything on Monday because I work the weekends.

I will be painting the side markers and rear vw badge background csg and the grille stripes gloss black.

The helmet is for fastivus and other track days

Also just to let you know, I've looked into painting my markers UG, and apparently they make a 2 stage clear coat that has a UV activated hardener capsel inside that you push a button on the bottom of the can right before application and shake well. I don't remember the exact video I learned that from, I'm on my phone now so I'm not going to bother finding it, but it's like 20-25 a can but gives professional results, or as close to professional results as you can get with rattle can. I'm going to use it when I get around to matching my markers.

This is the paint I'm using for the basecoat and sealer

I also have a sandable primer going underneath it all

Alright, interested to see the results. I imagine it'll turn out fine, painting is all about the prep anyways.
