  1. Anybody have a fender rolling guy they trust? My car has a very iffy paint job, so it'll take some skill to avoid cracks, etc. The places I'm finding on yelp seem to have spotty reviews...
  2. Since this thread is my most popular, lemme balance things out... The stainless down-tube I got from IE is perfection, and the alloy accelerator pedal is probably the most tangible improvement to my car so far. Got it to sit juuust level with the brake pedal when I'm on the brakes and downshifting. I'm sure they're on the header issue.

    What did you do to your 2002 today !

    I had to remove some material from the glovebox frame directly in front of the latch, to keep it from making contact with the face of the stereo. I could have shaped the hole a little nicer, but you can't see it once it's installed anyways. The front is held by stainless L brackets (Mcmaster 2313N12) riveted in place. I tried screws, but the wiggle was bothering me. I cut a channel into the brackets so I could adjust the pitch. Added beefier nuts (Mcmaster 95621A300) behind the bracket because I dont trust the skinny jam nuts that come on stereo pots to hold the radio up. In the rear, theres a tiny L bracket bolted to the normal stereo strap position. The stereo is touching the firewall(?) in back.

    Modified the transmission bracket to work with IE's stainless down-tube. Modified a spare glovebox to fit a tape deck, reflocked and wired it up. At some point last week I riveted an early shift boot bracket to the tunnel so I could go console-less, adapted a bakelite shift knob, and patched some carpet holes.
  6. Not to bump this thread again... but I bought it directly from IE. Even got an email from Jeff about it. It’s what they’re selling right now.

  10. Anybody here do the Snowball Rally in the past? What tires/chains/etc did you run to deal with snow & ice? I've got a beater set of rims with all season tires mounted... I'm hoping I can get by with those somehow. It seems like overkill to buy snow tires for one rally a year, and I'd never use em otherwise. I could be convinced to buy off-road tires if they'll work well on snow... I love fire service roads.

    380mm Momo Cavallino Cash/Trade for Prototipo

    I've also got a Cavallino 360mm (C36) that's too small for me. Not exactly what you asked for, but I'd be willing to trade.

    Piped in an electric fuel pump. Runs through the (previously unused) rear defroster circuit (so that I have a manual cutoff). Inline inertial switch. Also rewrapped/cleaned up the loom back there.
  15. Well when I started the thread it was Saturday, and this was blocking the rest of my weekend work. I called em today. I honestly didn't even know where the fault was... intake? Weber? Idiot holding the Weber?
