For some reason I love those. Do you use the orange coolant?

Right now I am not sure what coolant is in it. I have been looking around for a blue coolant to put in it.

For those waiting to see what the Killerglass looks like after install. I have yet to do the leds for it. I will probably get them installed tomorrow when I have a lot of time.

And if anyone knows where I can get a custom radiator cap and power steering cap, I would be grateful.

Got the leds hooked up to the streeglow module this morning. So now the leds to the subs and the killerglass all pulse with the stereo. Only when the trunk is open though. Now to go and relax in the back yard and watch the Blues show this morning. :D

Very nice! I am seriously considering one of those.

As far as coolant goes, the killer glass website lists the different color coolants and who makes them. The blue Subaru coolant is part # SOA868V9270...MSRP $22.95. It is already pre-mixed as well. As long as you do a flush to the system you should have no trouble using it. I plan on using Engine Ice myself.

If I could just figure out how to meld the Outback and the Neon into one car...

That is pretty sweet! How legit is that item? Obviously I find it crazy to use glass there... but yea... I would totally get one of those. Either that, or the Home Depot radiator pipe mod.

Lookin good man.

As long as you have the shrink fittings solid, there are no problems. It did help me find out I was low on coolant. :lol: It is pretty cool with it being hooked up to pulse with the sub leds. :D

Thank you and the Killerglass is made of Pyrex, so it is heavy duty glass. :D All your questions I pretty much asked before I bought it. And I was told by a friend. "Never use a hair dryer on the heat shrinks, use a heat gun for them". Very sound advice. :lol: And I will get a vid of it and the leds pulsing to my music after I get it flushed and the blue fluid put in. Which will probably be sometime in June for the blue, since I have other priorities right now. :D

Ordered the engine ice today. I found out it is better at least it was for me to order from their website. They are located in FL so the shipping cost is better. I will give an example... I looked at Summitracing.com and the total was around 155 for me. Then took a look at the engine ice website and the total for me was under 100. So if anyone does want to buy the stuff, make sure you are getting a good deal with shipping.

I would agree with this 100%, but when dealing with really small gauge wire a heat gun can often be a tad too much. A butane lighter works great too and you can direct the heat a lot better ;)

Actually the heatgun is for the heatshrinks that are hose clamps that become watertight seals after using the heatgun. The Killerglass website explains them better. So they are not small gauge wire. Even though I do have small gauge wire running along the passenger side of my neon that I did use regular heatshrinks on, which I did use a lighter for. :D

Bases for the twins car seats got delivered on Saturday. I installed them the same day. Had to put one of them directly behind the drivers seat so the seats don't hit each other. I actually have plenty of leg room with them that way. :) Now to get some dress up goodies for the engine. :D

Ordered a Mirror Blue anodized dip stick. The company ended up sending me one in black. :banghead: I e-mailed the company back... let's see if they fix the problem. And after this I am going to order direct from Billet Technologies.

244...199 for the killerglass and 25 for an extra led light, that also includes the 20 for shipping anywhere in the US. The killerglass itself is 199.00 plus 20 shipping.

LOL, that's lame. Next time check out Oznium.com. Plenty of pre-wired (for 12V) LED options for WAY less ;)

Short video of the killerglass pulsing to the bass. I have the leds there and on the box in the trunk wired to pulse with the bass. They will be brighter once I get it flushed and the new coolant put in.
