06 solstice sliver&356Pcar.dirtbike,4wheeler
There were several sources on eBay. After looking them over, I saw one that "seemed" to be more of a final product, but I got the "paint booth" ready for them anyway. When I looked them over, I couldn't see that they needed paint. If they weather in the heat, I can always pull them off again and give them a spray. Turned out to be really easy and sticking round magnets in the sockets (from the YouTube video) kept the dropped bolts down to ONE. Slick trick!I agree with the black handles.
Did you paint them?
Ah! I thought it was Werks, the color threw me off! Looks damn good.Werks (aka “PAW” on the forum)
I painted the face of the IC and the aluminum bumper black before mounting the nose cone up.
I have owned and installed the Hahn and Werks. From an install point of view the Werks was easier because it was not nearly as huge as the Hahn.
Both are bigger (and better) than the stock IC
here is a pic from before it was painted:
Yeah I put the black covers on mine too. Looks so much better. I went with these for wheels, pretty inexpensive and they are at the limit of fitting properly. They stick out quite a bit farther than the stock wheels, about 3/4". I was looking for a 5-spoke but couldn't fine one that I liked in our bolt pattern and offset. These are 18x8 +35mm.
Yeah the silver with the WERKS log was definitely going to be visible and the way California is getting about aftermarket I want to be as stealth as possible.Ah! I thought it was Werks, the color threw me off! Looks damn good.
Nevermind. I figured it out (i think). I just ordered some "marine grade" Red Welt Piping. Assuming it actually is marine grade, I am sure that will solve the fading issue.OK well dammit. As much as I love the red piping trim it has barely lasted a couple months and is rapidly fading to pink.
I have been searching around the internet to find a "high quality" version but it doesnt seem to exist?
Or am I just searching wrong?
Yes they do ... and knowing what I do now, I would probably go the RPM route as it would definitely be easier to install.Not that I am promoting their product (as I have no personal experience one way or the other) but doesn't RPM offer some "premade" 3rd brake light solutions?
Just want to close the loop for this one.Got a P2096 code lately. I think I got a vacuum leak by the intake. Noticed the intake nipple workaround is a bit loose. Hopefully some silicone sealant will address the leak and CEL.
Oh vacuumed the top.
Drill both parts with a 1/4" drill and splice them together with a piece of 1/4" copper tubing. The repair is invisible and so appears to be permanent.Just want to close the loop for this one.
Been driving around with the fix in place. Usually the code would come out after a few key cycles. So far so good. Not sure if this would be a permanent fix. Might have to end up buying the intake tube from DDM. Are there alternatives?
