i get a kick out of looking through the construction zone you have builds that belong and some that don't seem worthy like a stock refreshing it seem you need to be politically correct and in the click i am neither and my punctuation sucks Lol

i have a idea for my side sail windows that is to form them out of lexan or acrylic as you could form them with a scoop then paint from the back side and leave clear what you want i just need to make some molds to do this and a homemade vacuum former

Yes Ive had tires that are totally silent, Ive had tires that do everything. The falkens on the mustang break loose and make tons of noise but wont get me sideways, just slow down n roast. I had just put hei in a customers 57 belair and went for a test drive. He backed out, put in gear and pushed the gas like normal. Tires started spinning but just a zzzzzzzzztttt kinda noise, I thought it was awesome he was doing a burnout in front of his house. Noticed he was looking at me w a weird look on his face and I had to tell him to let up off the gas. Funny chit. Motor had way more power, hadta tell him to chill because the brakes still sucked.

Go buy 2 used tires for burnouts! Make a video! Thats be pretty bad arse if you made your own lenses. I need new ones too, found a guy thatll make lens covers for 100 each or buy the oem ferarri ones offa ebay. Going w the new ones for sure, would have to cut off the old lenses and glue the new ones on. everythings really worn on mine. Maybe make a change to different taillights?

Wow my brain just keeps going around and around on what to do for the quarter windows one second i think make your own then buy some fiberglass ones with the scoops and mod them by cutting them i think that the fiberglass ones would be the cheapest and fastest

Those look good, youll be able to make them work. They do look "newer" than the style of the body tho. They would look good smoked too.Maybe you could mod some 80s camaro or mustang gt taillights? Theyre kinda L shaped. Ive tried finding different lenses for mine w no luck. Maybe you could mod some 80s camaro or mustang gt taillights? Theyre kinda L shaped. Closest thing to mine are schoolbus or trailer taillights lol, not much in 5-6" diameter

the honda civic tail lights came in and i took a look at them sitting them in the opening for the tail light they do not look good they just are to small . I am thinking of drilling a small hole in the tail light that i have that look right and pouring glass cleaner in shaking them then drain and put a small rubber plug in the hole

Not sure this will help anyone but i was messing around with the Water/methanol control on the megasquirt 3x and i found i had the Hz set wrong for the solenoid as i had it to high so it was not running the solenoid on lower duty cycle like 30 percent duty so i was not getting any injection at 5 pounds of boost but now that i have it working right i can make a map of how much water/meth i need at x amount of boost and rpm giving me a better methanol delivery for better performance

Is that a fronius or a sunny boy in the background? Check out some forums, somebodyll have some software to mod that smog dyno. Probably have to upgrade a few parts for the high horsepower testing. Car looks great, the back sail panels are very diggable!
