Re: Project CMS: I need side molding!

Postby CMS-GT4 » Wed Apr 06, 2011 12:47 am

So I am curious if these in line water hose adapters are sufficient for installing a water temp gauge. Even though I have a new upgraded radiator and my gauge has shown the same kind of readings I had before, some say their thicker rads have not cooled as well. I figure I might as well install a water temp gauge if it means protecting my engine and making sure this thing is running optimal.
If I can avoid tapping something, I will.

Those work fine. I've used a Buddyclub one for my STACK dash feed. Put it as close to the coolant elbow as possible for best readings. Fyi - OEM hoses are 32mm ID.

Thanks. I will go ahead and order one. You and I actually have the same radiator. Have you run into any cooling issues that other have reported?

None at all. I ran unmixed/pure For life red in it, tested it mid summer boosting Stelvio Pass up and downhill, Nürburgring, etc.. Nice and stable temps (OEM single CS/RC fan). 8)

Good to know. I wonder what is causing these others to have issues. I am curious if there was a design change in later productions, or if they have a different model than the one we got. I know they offered two versions.

Anyhow, thanks. I am going to get this stuff ordered.

Maybe those engines/cooling systems were in bad shape? Or they used cheap ass ghetto coolant? 'Coolant is coolant y0'..

Got my side molding in. He broke one the driver side quarter peice when taking it off, but its a clean break, and I might be able to fix it. I will take it to the painter and see what he says. I may be set on these bits now. I sure hope so. I want the car done.

If not, I might need to get mixmaster to snag me one.

Took the molding to the painter, and they think they can fix the broke piece. I told them when they are leaving, and they say they will be getting the painting done next week.
The manager had his new camaro behind my car, and I noticed there was some tape on the grill. I asked if they were going to work to it, and he said they already did. His dad got hit in the front and wreck the fender and front bumper. The good thing was it looked just like I had last seen it. As good as new, so that gives me even more confidence that the car will turn out perfect. In related news, here are a couple of pic previews.

Looking good. I love that color. Is it the Porsche silver? It has a hint of tan/sand color in it, unless my eyes need adjusting. Looks great. Can't wait to see the car back together.

I have my new water gauge and sensor adapter on the way. Since they had not done the front bumper yet, I might call them tomorrow to remove the teeth and get a plate relocation bracket. Still on the fence about it.

I was going to print Dan's shirt today, but ink had dried up in the screen so I will likely do his shirt once I am moved into my new studio next month. Here is a preview.

EDIT: You know, its almost been two years since I sent my car off to paint. Its been over seven years since my car has looked good. I say its about due time.

I think I am going to keep it simple and leave it alone. I would hate to put something on that is less stable and risks smacking the plate against my shiny new paint job. If I was to stay here, I would get it removed though. Hate freaking front plates.

I am considering moving the plate up a little higher though. I will have to see when I get the car back.

I was planning on making some fiberglass ducts for the brakes, but I will likely use it to divert air to the engine since the plate is adding some restriction.

She is looking good. Glad you found what appears to be a good painter.
