Default NC owners slay me

The m.net NC crew are the best. I can hardly believe the insane mods they do! Their fab skillz go above and beyond.

One guy the other day made an armest cushion out of a mouse pad and POSTED PICS. Today's takes the cake. I bring you....THE KEY HOLE COVER

He got approval from the mod gods to build them for others and sell them.

Why would you want to cover the key holes? I guess I just don't get it.

Well, unlike all you folks that are stuck in the dark ages with your old NAs, there is a wonderful thing called "keyless entry" aka remote (proximity sensor on the NC's) and thus causing the keyhole to be nearly useless. Hell, go ahead and laugh, but if i could pick up something like that for under $10 i'd probably do it... i don't use mine.

OK, slightly gay, I agree but where I come from they would be usefull. If you do not use your key holes for a few Swedish winters with rain, salt, snow and all the crap that comes with it, they do not work any longer. I know, because after hours of WD-40, penetration oil, gasoline and what not, I have had to bust a window in a SAAB with a dead battery, just to get in.

I've started reading the NC forum when I am bored at work, gives me something to laugh at.

And do not forget to wave to NC drivers when the drive by you.

You ever try heating your key with a lighter and inserting it into the door? Works better then damn near anything.

I really should get on the ball and install power door locks into my car, my alarm has the capacity I just need the solenoids.

I see what you mean

I'm all for the kit ($5,000 is not unreasonable, given that it includes an intercooler -- which is far more sensitive for superchargers than it is for turbos, as they cannot leak at all, whereas turbo-application intercoolers can leak -- and ECU add-on / replacement) providing that it's around the $5k mark.

Whoever offered $6K is off the mark...
