thanks! I've thought about those door pulls; touch choice, not sure if i actually want them as door handles; spending $20 on similar porsche pulls on ebay for some seat pulls did the trick just fine for now haha. might do the same for my under seat storage or something up front.

finally did my steering wrap. huge pain in the rear; my airbag simply would not unmount no matter what i did with the clips so had to do my best with the trim on and all that. all in all though didn't actually take all that long, for my first time trying it i'm actually pretty pleased with the result.

now to see if it stands the test of time... fabricwise, stitch wise..

Just left Midas for a few things, anyone have input?

Car shakes at 80 mph. Additionally hear a fast constant 'thump-thump-thump' as I go along which was making me suspect hubs or something to that effect. Tires aren't bad, wheels are hopefully not bent? Wtf lol

Also turns out my app catback I had a shop install didn't well a slip sleeve on as I asked them to (mating 3” to 2.5" midpipe) so they welded that shit.

Changed oil with motul, also put in motul friction reducer additive and motul fuel additive for the racecar.

Sounds like a bent wheel to me.

Maybe nitto tires are poorly balanced (I.e., too much rubber in some spots and not enough in others)? They are cheap.

Could be bent wheel... I get the symptoms as slow as 20-30 mph when I hear the noise. Only shakes at like 80mph.

I'd skip the jack of all trades master of none Midas shop & head to a good tire store. I have had very good luck with Discount Tire.
