Oh and you should really tie that header wrap down with those stainless zip ties, those measly screw clamps are going to unwind upon vibration and it's all going to unravel and possible get tangled in your rad fan!
the joke is that hardly anybody record that its imitation leather
I still drove a few years with new and repaired paints but any demage you get if you use the car is a pain in the a** :tdown:
So i will see how the imitaition works on on this car- my daily BMW E36 still have a ostrich imitation on the front, bonnet and the roof which works perfectly with heat, coldness, dirt and water :angel:
i adapt the oem water tank inlet because the cap was and is absolutly ugly. so i cut the oem part near the tank and adhere it with the flexible hose. by the way i built an adapter to fixed it.
than it got a yellow paint instead of white
Nice work man, you and me both got a love for the oem parts. I think I spent over a grand on oem nuts bolts clips ect caps ... lol But it sure looks good! Im loving the interior of the car as well! Whats your car weigh in at? with 1/4 tank
if you paining CF you normaly use a normel clear coat or a black one for the edges. Its import how you built the CF. There are 2 possibilities.
you still laminating by vacuum or make a kind of dip with CF and laminating some parts.
For both you will need a eposxymixture (not polymixture!!!) which have an very slow responsing time (more than 6 up to 24 hours)
If you built an own CF-Part you should baking it for perfekt stability after thermosetting.
If you built an overlay/ dip for dressing some parts you can only baking them like the dressed parts sustain it. For example you have probelm with plastics - there you can only work with a adjustable hot air gun.
if you know which kind of type you will built you must choose your (clear) coat. the expansions of CF and coat are importend. otherwise the look sucks after a time in sunshine.
