I bought a chrome wrap as well but I have been told the adhesive has a shelf live of 6 months. Not sure how mine has held up the first time I tried to apply I could not get it back off the car without heat, I haven't checked it for 2 years ,my body work and engine swap and on and on has been slooooow.

today i received the blower pulley back from carbinite and they did a good job at carbon coating to give it a rougher surface to grip the belt and it sure did work but now i think i have slippage on the crank pulley i might have the local machine shop make me a aluminum crank pulley and then send it out and have the same coating done to it

well i have found that the crank pulley is where the belt is slipping so now i must send that in to have it treated so it gets a better grip i will tell them to treat for maximum grip . it is kinda funny when you see a higher boost from the larger pulley due to it is not slipping as bad

New belt tensioner pulley bracket the pulley has 2 places to bolt to for small pulley and the large 3 inch pulley . as you can see i didn't have a mill to make the adjustment slot so i dilled multiple holes then i cut and filed now i have great belt wrap and belt tension . funny thing that happened when running the car t sounded great but t dropped a few cylinders so now think hurt the engine so i start checking it out and it is popping so i keep checking thing and it ends up a ignition module that has gone bad so it was down 2 cylinders as it is a wasted spark system

Well with just getting better belt wrap i have gone from 3 psi of boost with a bad slipping belt to right around 10 psi and i think the belt is slipping just a little and i have found i needed to take some coil dwell time out so the ignition module wont over heat as it does in the video and drops a few cylinders at the end www.youtube.com/watch?v=wiexq2LdiFM after watching the video i see 11 pounds of boost and i think there is 2 to 3 pounds more boost once i get rid of the rest of the belt slip

thanks i know i could put it on the street but i want it to look decent as know a nice paint job s not going to make it faster more street-able and the same for the interior but i would like to have something that folks aren't laughing at me about as i am not a body man or interior person but i can't afford to have some one do it for me as i would have a professional do paint and body so i hope this thread helps all those who are in the same boat as me

I posted more pictures of the car after using slick sand i do like the product but need to learn how to spray it better but it sands nice and i have decided to blend away the hood body lines and you will need 3 quarts to prime all the car as you can see i ran out and the trunk and front bumper cover did not get primed

I have decided after working on the hood some to just get another hood as the vent / scoop s to wide at the rear and after looking and thinking about it it would look even stranger if i remove those body lines i think

No wonder a show car paint job cost so much you sand and sand and sand to get it as flat as glass before you even put the final primer down and i sure am giving a car that really doesn't deserve this much attention but i just must have it as best as i can do

People that have never prepped for paint are always the ones complaining about the cost... Keep up the good work.
