Re: Oil Catch Can

Yep. It's basically a bottle with a vent. I mean sure super fancy ones have internal baffles and a K&N filter. But so what? It acts as a vent for the crankcase while collecting any oil vapor and allowing it to settle in a cup. The cheap one I got has a drain plug and a sight tube on the side to ...

Re: Dash refurb: what fabric?

Flocking looks like a bit of a mess; at least I know it would be for me anyway lol. Hinga yours came out great! Until I started this project, I had no idea what that surface actually is. I always just thought it was alcantara or micro suede or some fancy material.

Re: WTB: 7AGE Headers ready to mount n play

I got my mounts from Eric at Rhys Millen Racing for a good price. I think his user name is E86? Look in the stores n shops section for RMR, I know he has a couple threads there.

I would love to try that header out, but I have only seen one person pick one up, but no pics or install or reviews yet.

Re: Oil Catch Can

With no electronics or moving parts, I think it's hard to justify buying a super expensive JDM-ohmygoodness/mad tyte yo catch can. I have a $21 joint off eBay and it works every bit as well as a name brand piece. Heck you could very easily make your own out of whatever bottle you have laying around ...

Re: Dash refurb: what fabric?

The material isn't as stretchy as I hoped, but the piece is about double the width I need, so I should be able to fit it smoothly without it ripping or bunching up. Lookin for free...

Re: Dash refurb: what fabric?

I hadn't thought of that.... I reckon I could finish filling in the little gaps and I might be able to make a mould. Would anybody want a smoothed dash with no clock or vents? It would just be like a cap kinda.

Re: Dash refurb: what fabric?

I busted up a plastic storage tub to make covers to fill in the vent and clock holes. As luck would have it, the depth of the lip on the dash is almost exactly double the thickness of the tub I cut up. So I made some shims for the covers and epoxy'd them all into place. I just need to fill in the sm...

Re: Dash refurb: what fabric?

Also, from what I've read about alcantara: expensive and might not stretch enough to fit smoothly around the contours of the dash. I reckon that's why flocking works on every surface cuz you spray it on.

Re: Dash refurb: what fabric?

Great ideas guys. Flocking looks like it could be a big mess, and i'm not even sure I like the end result. Looking at the dash panel with the foam stripped off, it's actually really weird shaped above the gauge cluster. Wish I could post pics to show you guys. I am going to use a plastic tub cut up ...

Working on the dash yesterday and today. Goal for today is have all the cut-outs smoothed over and ready to wrap whenever I find a material I like lol. I need to find a new picture uploading site, I don't think I've even shown a picture with the SSR's on?

Ok so now I'm looking at this flocking kit I've seen on a couple other forums; but with varying results. I found a Subaru WRX that looks ok, a GC8 that was over done, and an Evo X that looked like butt in the pics. Everyone responding is all drooling over these kits, but I'm not super impressed. Plu...

Try some Cusco engine mounts to drop the engine some. That will give you some clearance.

Dash refurb: what fabric?

Today I pulled my cracked dash out and set about stripping it down. The foam pad removal was fairly easy; I used a flat head screwdriver and chipped off all the foam and brittle old vinyl cover pretty easy. Then what was leftover I soaked with some acetone and sanded off. Now I have a smooth plastic...

Re: WTB: 7AGE Headers ready to mount n play

What do you mean 7AGE headers? That's still a 4AGE head so whatever 4AGE header you want works. The taller 7A block makes some clearance issue with the floor, but i'm using Cusco engine mounts and they drop the engine a bit so it's all good.
