I dont know where to find out, but I would really like to but in the elastic netting in my sedan like wagons have, but where would you attach it. I looked around and there dont seem to be any connection spots. Any ideas....?

Thanks! Yea, it's back in there now. It's only held in with double sided tape, tho. I didn't bother drilling holes for it since I"ll probably end up getting a short ram intake soon.

It's really pretty straightforward. Buy a sheet of aluminum(I had one laying around in my garage), or a strip of the right width. Cut it to the length of your radiator, and cut notches so it'll clear the rad cap and the bulge where the hose is. If you make yours to replace the oem rad brackets like I did, you'll need to drill some holes too(I wouldn't recommend this for the stock radiator unless you use a bushing of some sort to keep the pegs from getting worn down). And remember, measure twice, cut once. If you screw up the holes, it'll either look hood or you'll have to start over.

Getting a smooth uniform bend across the whole thing was the only part that's not really obvious. I'm sure there are plenty of ways to do this, but I used 2 big ass C clamps to bind 2 pieces of square steel tubing to the top and bottom of the sheet, with the edges where I wanted the bend. Then it was just a matter of pressing the aluminum into a plank until I got the desired angle. I'd recommend doing this before you make any cuts in the material beyond just getting the basic shape.

When I did mine, I screwed the piece of sheet steel to my old sub box and lined up the edge of the box with where I wanted the crease. Then I put a 2x4 over that edge and whacked it with a hammer until it looked right. A rubber mallet works pretty well, too.

I've been thinking of painting the lower-half of my OBS with bed liner... How heavy is the stuff?

Don't have anything special for this thread. I did a Crown Royal shift-boot, working on fog lights (need to wire 'em, not so unique anyways), and I screwed with my intake a bit.

^I'm thinking it's a 5MT. If it was auto, there'd be a lockout button.

You're right! It is a stock 5 speed manual gearbox.

Heavy as in terms of viscosity of the bed liner before it cures, or in terms of how much it weighs as in pounds or ounces?

I honestly don't know how much it weighs, but I'm sure you could compare it next to a can of some other kind of paint. Since it goes on so thick, I would guess it weighs about as much as a few coats of regular paint. The stuff is amazingly durable.

Not the most unique, but i haven't seen it before.
I have a wrx so i have the interior third brake light and i have an STi spoiler which equals 2 third brake lights, so i got rid of the interior one and covered it as best as possible, the hardest part was wrapping the carpet around the curved parts...



bad pic from outside, but its the best i could get
