Ya that's very nice, I like the wrapped dash trim panel. I guess it's the exact same process as fiberglassing something...

When's the turbo kit going on? I can see an intercooler peaking out..

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!

Just my 2 cents :)

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:

here some little news... i didn´t have lot of time for my 6 in the past :(

But it should run at 2012 :cool:

i installed an oil temperature gauge...









than i finish the building shell of my license plate bracket. I used on OEM part of an Xedos 6 and adapt it to my shorter license plate. Finally i use elastic plastic filler to adapt it on my bumper.



I know that it gives an OEM MX-6 part for the license plate but ot not works at my bumper without any adaption.

Now i overlay it with CF for finsih... hope it looks great :)

some days are gone and the fendercovers are already done... til i will fit them on the car i must complete the CF of the headlight washer and the license bracket.

At same time i want to built an functional cover for my rear bumper to get the heat away of the exhaust - like a xxxxs Exhaustdiffusor

so lets make a model



after first fitting i built a negative from to create the cover as it oneself



i think it fits perfekt :tup: Now i will finish it these days


So if i hadn´t enough building yards - the trunk needs some more lightly and functional covers...

i can say something about the weight if it runs already...

this [fizzle]ing MS make problems without end. after start working with tunerstudio the problems grown... First it doesn´t work with the new mapdaddy, than it have problems with the rpm signals...

at the moment i fight with the 1G output (distributor) because i have no spark ignition :tdown:

but i have something enjoyable - the exterior of the car is alredy done :tup:

first i stick some blank disc...



...to save the paint and install the vinylcovers of the fenders



than i installed the oem MX-6 washers, the jdm headlights and my custombuilt CF- licenseframe



finally i installed the CF- heatshield on my bumper. for perfect work i built in an black painted aluminium heat sheet which have a distance from the CF of arround 0.15"



hope you like it like i do :E

today i will find out something with my osszyloscop and hope i will find the ignitionproblem as far as quick :shrug:

thanks :)


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.
