Well, looks like I'm going to have to order another pair of rear power window switches with blue leds. Took the ones I had out when I redid the rear door panels and can't find what I did with them. Have looked in both cars, the house, everywhere and no luck. No biggie except I can't install my rear vent visors until I have the switches so I can lower the windows lol.

They all crack its just a matter of when. Hopeless is suppose to be coming up with a billet aluminum version. Until then I am going to wrap and clamp(reinforce) the one from the Kona when I swap it over even though its only about 3-4 months old.
I was just thinking about this a minute ago.... Thinking about going and getting some piping and building one myself... It'd be easy to build, using threaded pipe, like u'd use for propane hard line's on house and stuff......

Sounds interesting. When that pipe goes there is no warning. No leaks. Just BAM, its cracked and coolant goes everywhere. Within a 2-3 minutes at most your almost out of fluid and the temp climbsbrapidly. Just an fyi.

Nice shop there. I want some land and a shop. Really would like a lift, thats my dream anyways.



I wonder if have that pipe burst has anything to do with y'alls cars having stock cats on them? With all that heat they produce surely your baking stuff up higher than my car would. When I ran the hollowed out cat and shorty header that combo could make some heat.
