Well, this thread got a lot of neglect.
Where we last left off I had switched to mostly distilled water with water wetter and 10-20% of coolant, a 180F thermostat with an enlarged bypass hole drilled, and cooling problems solved.
Well, the temp still wants to climb over 75mph, but this meant my commute was fine every day, so problem solved. Over the winter I switched back to 50/50 and a 192 thermostat, and in a month or so I'll be switching back to my super cool set up again.
I made a new towhook for my car:
And I'm working on some nifty changes for the interior:
3D printed Shift **** and E-brake Handle:
StopTech Brake Pads:
And the hood vent updated design looks swell:
Not sure if I posted pics of Joeereid's intake box installed:
And I installed an ebay catless downpipe. Love the noise with top down, hate it with the top up.
Broken Crap on my car:
Both window regulators, windshield, top, both fog lights.
The hood, window frame, mirrors, trunk, and spoiler all have peeling clear.
Ordered some new window tint and some replacement fog lights since the passenger one has been broken since I bought the car. Rumor has it these bolt right in:
Got the lights. Not the nicest but not the worst either, but they include weather proof connectors, a relay, fuse, switch, and about a mile of cable that I'll save for some future project. Very cool.
Not OEM or nice aftermarket quality, but not too bad either.
I also got some used window regulators thanks to Curly/CSTG/AR auto service(not sure where the lines are drawn these days).
I got some vinyl wrap a while back, it's pretty cheap stuff, I'm gonna try putting it on the hood this saturday and see how terribad it looks.
and right now I'm going all jeffbuc on the window regulators i bought from curly, cleaning out all the old grease and putting in new white lithium grease.
The old grease is so gross.
