Re: Manny's 96 turbo 1gn: update 4/27/19

Man, here we are June 12 and I still haven't painted the hood. On the other hand. Had to replace my alternator which sucked because they are expensive. And just tonight car was acting terrible so I checked the codes and of course it's throwing a code for the camshaft sensor. https://uploads.tapatalk...

Re: 6/1/2019 Dayton Spring meet

So did a meetup ever happen. Or not yet. It's already june and we haven't had a meet up yet. I'm free on weekends now as we stopped working weekends. I would probably come if someone set something up. But has to be weeks ahead of time so we can notify everyone else etc. Sent from my VS995 using Tapa...

I doubt it. I just put it on again for pictures. I still need to order some new hood aerocatch latches.
I have time to paint it this coming weekend so can't wait for those results. Image

Re: Manny's 96 turbo 1gn: update 4/27/19

Ehh, I'm not picky. Ill tie a rope and hang it on the wall from the hood latch. Haha. Kidding guys. No harm done. Only sat there for like 3 seconds. If I had paid brand new prices for this hood then you best bet I would be treating it like a baby. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190430/3cb215c23a...

I believe I'm going to paint it flat red. Dont want to clear coat it and have this nice new shiny piece next to a bunch of peeling clear coat.

Well replaced yet another part that should of been replaced along time ago. These are not oem gaskets. They are much thicker and can be purchased on eBay for around $36 for the 2. I just installed them and comparing old to new is wow. No wonder the stock ones leak water into the trunk. Hope to have ...

Not yet. I didn't put them all on. Just put 1 on for picture purposes. Spring weather is upon us tho, here in Indiana at least. So I might put all 4 on by this coming weekend. Maybe have new full pictures by Sunday night.

Yes can't beat that price. I think they were priced reasonably. They make them in 14s all the way to 19s. Here you go guys. Perfect fitment. No rubbing etc. Got some new spline lug nuts in the same color to match as well. This is all I have for now. In a few weeks once winter is gone they'll go on f...

Been a while since I seen your progress. So much great progress at that. I like everything I see. 1 thing tho about when you went to the dyno. For them to not have the fan even on it means the guy didn't give a care in the world. Everytime I've seen someone in the dyno the fan is always on there. Ob...

Too bad it's in rough shape. A carbon hood would look great on that car. Paint matched will still look good, though. Right. I never liked carbon fiber anyways. Not on a hood at least. Now carbon fenders I do love. Which is why I could never see myself paying full price for a hood condition carbon h...

You didn't have to seperate the strut from the knuckle to change out the axle. Trust me, I've done it dozens of times myself. Next time just make sure the tie rod is off the knuckle and pop the control arm ball joint apart from the knuckle and the entire strut knuckle is free to move as you need. Al...
