Thanks! You can use the links above for full resolution version.
thanks for the quick reply! & that looks pretty nice, 3M double sided tape to keep it steady im guessing? & i actually am extremely interested in doing this to my interior, its more sleek and classy in my opinion! how much did all of the interior come out to be? how many yards? & would a custom auto shop be able to wrap it because i doubt i'd be able to do it all myself without messing up! thanks again!

Over the weekend I had to take care of my first repair on the car. My exhaust gasket in between the downpipe and midpipe was disintegrated. I purchased a new 3" gasket from Grimmspeed and picked up new grade-8 hardware.
The procedure was simple, jack up the car, snap the two existing bolts off, clean the mating surfaces, put in new gasket, apply anti-seize on the thread bolts and tighten hardware.

Took about 30 minutes start to finish and it's back and better than new.

Picture of the blown gasket area:

Is it just me or does the grade-8 stuff rust a lot quicker? After one winter, my hardware looked 10 years old.

i usually get stainless hardware for exhaust stuff, the exhaust is stainless. i don't feel grade 8 is always necessary. definitely always anti seize and always use lock washers though.

I did have the stainless stuff? I also have two stainless nuts on my rack. From the same package. One is rusted completely and the other spotless. I don't understand.

So are they Grade 8 or Stainless? They're definitely different. Stainless bolts come in different quality grades in terms of their alloy mixture. Most of the standard stainless hardware you can obtain cheaply is less resistance to rust compared to true 18-8 (18% Chromium, 8% Nickle) marine stainless steel.
Because of it's lower carbon content to keep it resistant to rust, it is also not able to be hardened so it's strength is equal to a standard grade 2 bolt.

Grade 8 hardware is hardened steel with an Electro-zink coating. The coating will resist corrosion and rust as long as it is not scratched or exposed to high levels of salinity.

If you are to use stainless hardware, don't cheap out. you'll need to find high-quality marine grade 18-8 stainless. Either way I'm in a high salinity area with drastic temperature changes so either one will rust and corrode eventually.

Thanks Jason, very informative. I'll be sure to order some higher grade marine bolts for my next gasket change.

The exhaust bolts were grade 8, the nuts must have been different blends but tossed in the same bin at home depo.

Sex on wheels right there. So now the scoop there is just for looks

Sexy SWP right there man. I picked up a new set of the same wheels you got but they're dipped white, took the dip off today to see how gold looks on the car. Pics are in my thread.

such a beautiful car though, Jason

I think is equally impressive that you read through my rants and raves!
Glad you enjoyed the ride, looking forward to more fun things in the future.

For now, I'm anxiously awaiting the fall

Cheers!

Over the past holiday weekend I drove my car down to the Tri-State area to visit some friends and family. I was able to see Jive Turkey and Flex N WRX while I was down there for dinner and a few drinks.

I didn't take too many images. Jive grabbed the picture of us in the wash bay... No worries, we didn't use the brushes.

When I did upgrade to the Pioneer head unit, I ended up selling my OEM satellite radio and picking up the Sirius unit for the Pioneer.

The head unit has a small antenna for the navigation similar to the satellite antenna so I mounted both of them on the inside of the windshield on the top right. It the same place that I had the OEM antenna.

I still works really well and rarely cuts out.

Cheers!
