    Installing the Carbon Driven overlay made out of real carbon fiber. First thing is first, you will have to remove the gauge cluster from the dash. 20160212_180941 by brandon madrigal, on Flickr 20160212_183657 by brandon madrigal, on Flickr Once that is removed, you will need to separate the bezel from the cluster. 20160212_185525 by brandon madrigal, on Flickr The next thing is a bit harder, because you will need to separate the plastic lens from the bezel. If you have a Dremel, you will be able to cut where the plastic was glued and it will come off. Or if you are careful and patient enough, you can pry it open with a flat head screw driver. It will crack the plastic if you're not careful enough, so watch out. DO NOT HEAT IT UP. It will melt. When you put the lens back on, you can add some silicone to the edges and glue it back, or you can just slap it on like I did. It does not move, and you cannot tell that it isn't glued on. 20160212_191323 by brandon madrigal, on Flickr The overlay comes with adhesive. You will need to peel off the plastic and apply directly to the bezel. Make sure that the surface is cleaned. You can apply and remove, but if you do, the adhesive might wear out. 20161225_101738 by brandon madrigal, on Flickr 20161225_101858 by brandon madrigal, on Flickr Since the cluster was out, I took the opportunity to swap out the cluster lights with LED's. I bought a pack of 10 off of Ebay for a couple of bucks. To this day, they still work with no issues. You will need size 194 bulbs. You can use any color, I used blue. 20160212_193810 by brandon madrigal, on Flickr Final: 20161225_103604 by brandon madrigal, on Flickr 20161225_103609 by brandon madrigal, on Flickr 20161225_103624 by brandon madrigal, on Flickr IMG_8963 by brandon madrigal, on Flickr IMG_8964 by brandon madrigal, on Flickr Disclaimer: Madd Motorsports did not pay retail price.

  4. Changing the Cowl Panel

    Just another blog post. Swapping out the original cowl panel, and exchange it for the Carbon Driven carbon fiber cowl panel. However, the same can be applied for any cowl panel exchange. Tools:-10MM socket-8MM socket or wrench-Flat head screw driver-BladeWhen installing the cowl panel, I decided to take off the hood to make things easier, and because my cowl prevented me from taking off a wiper arm. However, that is not needed. You can still work on it with the hood on. To remove the hood, you will use a 10MM socket to remove the 4 nuts (2 on each side) of the hinge. You can pull off the hood. Please be aware that if you are using a non-oem hood, you may have some interference issues. We using the Trufiber 3"cowl hood and we have a problem with the hood rubbing the cowl panel when opening it, however, with our stock GT hood, there are no issues whatsoever. 20161202_181248 by brandon madrigal, on FlickrYou will need to remove the wiper arms. To remove the wiper arms, you will need to pull the locking pin, and the arms slide up. REMEMBER TO PAY ATTENTION TO HOW THE ARMS ARE MOUNTED! They will slide back into place at any orientation, so remember how they were. Also you will need to remove the weather stripping (AKA Firewall to hood seal), it will just slide out. There are 3 push pins located at the "front" of the panel that will need to be removed. After that, you can just rip it out. Once it is off, you will need to remove the washer nozzle hose and the nozzles so that you can reuse them. When it is removed, flip it upside down and remove the push pins, there is a total of 6. You can also use this time to vacuum everything that accumulated under the panel. 20161202_181959 by brandon madrigal, on FlickrCarbon fiber vs plastic. 20161202_182918 by brandon madrigal, on FlickrIf you purchased a cowl panel with the cowl to windshield rubber, you can skip this step. But if you did not, you will need to remove the OEM rubber. When removing the rubber, keep in mind that the rubber is 13-23 years old. It is brittle and it will tear easily. Since my OEM panel was broken, I just broke it into pieces and removed the rubber that way. If you want to save it, I recommend that you use a blade to start it, and slowly rip it off. Once you get it off, put some think double sided tape (or good glue) on the cowl panel you are installing. 20161202_184926 by brandon madrigal, on FlickrOnce you are done, install the rubber, nozzle hose and nozzles, and the 6 push pins that you were removed from the bottom side of the OEM panel. If you are replacing with a carbon fiber piece, please be aware that it is extremely stiff and does not bend easily. If you try to bend it, it will snap. You will need to loosen the exterior A-Pillar trim a bit so that you can wiggle it in. To loosen up the trim, you will need to open your door, look where the hinges are and located the trim fender bolt. I believe it is a 8MM bolt. You can try to fit a socket, however, a wrench was easier for me. 20161202_182103 by brandon madrigal, on FlickrAfter that, wiggle it in place and push the panel into place by using the 6 pins. After that, install the 3 push pins on the front, and install the firewall to hood seal. Dont forget to tighten up the exterior trim bolt. 20161202_193930 by brandon madrigal, on Flickr20161202_193935 by brandon madrigal, on FlickrDont forget the wiper arms!20161202_201207 by brandon madrigal, on FlickrAnd the hood!20161202_203808 by brandon madrigal, on FlickrTada!20161203_161707 by brandon madrigal, on Flickr20161203_160112 by brandon madrigal, on Flickr20161203_160047 by brandon madrigal, on FlickrDisclaimer: Madd Motorsports or Carbon Driven are not responsible for any injuries, any damage whatsoever, or for incorrect installation.

  8. Black Pearl Evolution Redux

    Just make sure if there’s any openeings in the wheel well that they get sealed. Try using the weatherstripping to seal between the wood and well and let us know how it works. Ive heard bad and good with the Eastwood stuff. Same as the reviews show. Some say it’s thick and great and others swear it’s way thinner. Either way it should be sufficient for what your doing and will help make all the difference
  9. Black Pearl Evolution Redux

    i had already added dynamatting the whole trunk when i redo this this winter. i was going to get this from eastwood as i can pick it up in store. http://www.eastwood.com/xmat-sound-deadening-18x32-ines-34-8-sq-ft.html

    Nothing a lil duct tape and job weld couldn’t fix!!!! ;-)
  11. Random parts I have for sale.....

    Also adding my team z k-member. It’s never been installed. I’ll sell it for price of one new and I’ll cover shipping. That’s a bit of savings for something that literally is sitting brand new and never been touched. Josh can attest to that.
  12. Random parts I have for sale.....

    Instead of 2 months I gave ya 2 years...... still want it??? :-)
  13. Project White95

    That valve looks like ass. The C heads better not look like that...
  14. Project White95

    See, I knew buying those C heads was a good move: Apparently there was a leaking head gasket: Swapped the doors with Space Ghost: Also, removed the spindles to have the tie rod mounting holes bored out to 5/8" for the MM bolt on, bump steer kit
  15. Random parts I have for sale.....

    lol, done deal!
  16. Black Pearl Evolution Redux

    @Prokiller use something such as dynamat extreme or second skins products to line the wheel well. Then you just need to find the easiest way to seal the board to the wheel well. Weatherstripping may help but not sure how well it would seal. It’s worth a try. The main thing is just getting it as tight as you can. The solobarics do well with a large airspace but you will definitely notice a major difference in sealing it. People generally think freeair means just toss it in. Unfortunately they still need a way to restrict the airflow. They use to make a material you could use to line an open backed enclosure for free air subs and what it did was heavily restrict the airflow enough so that the sun still thought it was in a fully enclosed box. It was really useful for doing things such as mounting a sub to a rsd or rear decklid and not needing a box. You just lightly framed aroUnd it and then backed it with the material.

    $5 and a couple other items and you got a deal!!! 😂

    $5 for everything you have left!!
  19. Black Pearl Evolution Redux

    actually that's really helpful @ttocs & @Evilcw311. I really don't know shit about car audio systems. the more i read and watch videos about, it helps, but confuses me more. what if i used some rubber weatherstripping to go around the wheel well? think that would be enough to "seal" it?
  20. Full Moon Friday Garage w/ attached house

    last few things went together this weekend. got the ceiling painted: pictures don't really show not worth posting more than one, but its definitely cleaner in there now. i swear we painted it when we got the house, but after throwing up a coat...i'm not so sure i did. then got the towel racks hung and cleaned it all up only things yet are little things that don't effect the function: window blind floor transition piece. looked for one, but can't find one to match and realized that i didn't leave enough between the new floor and the old floor to allow for the T piece. so going to try and cut the old one to be flat otherwise, i think we are going to officially close out the bathroom remodel.
  21. Number Tew's First House Build Thread

    good job on doing the microwave...other than the drywall sawing. i see a billy bookcase...

    so what you need to do is hit the share button (looks like a < with dots at the end) and a menu pops up and the top link says copy url. paste it in and the forum auto corrects it to postable.

    Let me try this with my android.

    I think the point is, Ryan added some bass for $15.00 with minimal install. It'll kick plenty fine and is a really clean install.
