    Any stick-shift drivers in the forums?

    Yep, my daily ('16 Impreza) and my fun car ('09 Mustang) both manual trans. It keeps anyone else in the house from driving them. ;) Mike B PS: can be a pain in the butt in stop-and-go traffic, though!

    Same. I don't think he would have fared well on the NYC scene in the 90's, LOL. Mike B

    Do you tighten all lugs & hardware new drums?

    Snug them back up, they'll get loose with use. Don't over tighten, though - can crush the plies with too much pressure. Mike B

    Satin Flame cleaner?

    I'd just make sure it was clean, (no debris or other goop) like I mentioned above with warm water and soap... then assemble and enjoy. They look good to me! (Go a little extra on the chrome to really make it pop) Mike B

    Satin Flame cleaner?

    Always start as mild as possible. I'd try some warm soapy water on an old washcloth. Mike B
