Painted the other calipers today and they didnt turn out very great though in my opinion but if you squint a bit they look cool. The colors and amount of gloss between all of them are off in some manner. While it might not be so noticeable until pointed out, the fact that I know they didnt turn out all even ticks me off somewhat. The spray paint has managed to get pretty much all over the place, everything is dusted in a layer of blue now, even my shoes I was wearing are a shade of blue now. There is various parts of the kitcar layered in blue dust as well and seems to not of stuck thankfully. I used paper to shield one side of the car but that didnt stop the spray paint from basically circulating throughout the entire garage. I am not really happy with all this to be honest and I should of just had these parts powder coated instead or just left alone. I am going to try the valve cover next with the same paint and see how that goes. It really makes me dread getting the hood and fenders painted. I will have to find an automotive painter near me. Aside from that my patients has run out on multiple fronts as I am still waiting on the rest of stage 2 to be delivered. I requested the stage 3 invoice two weeks ago and still have not received it. All the parts I sent to powder coating a month ago are still there waiting to be done. I understand that DF is booked out pretty hard and so is my powder coating guy but at this point it feels like I wont get any more parts and I have a fancy paper weight in my garage. Combine all that with my health, which I found out the new insurance I was forced to acquire is not accepted by my family doctor. The PCP I was auto assigned does not take my insurance either. What the ****? I am behind on my mental and physical health by at least 6 months and I have been waiting for weeks for appointments just to find out that I cant even see the doctor to which my family doctor just recommended that I call 911 next time I have an attack so I can actually get treatment. Then today finding out that the insurance I was kicked off of still may take me back even though today I requested an increase on my current forced insurance plan to which I will have to wait even more for them to paper bill me to get it activated and I was not even told how much per month it will end up costing me and so, more useless waiting. I am waiting on so many things its so tiring and I am so done right now. Sorry for venting.

Only you will ever see 2 brake calipers close together. Even on one side they are several feet apart.
