  1. midget wrestling...and cigars

    you go to an event titled to watch LP wrestling, find a small ring in the middle of the place and then it takes 15 mins for that math to add up? How drunk were you when you went in?

    we have needs he needs to take into consideration.
  4. paint or powder?

    I had to make some changes along the way from problems with paint peeling with tape and some primer/paint failing. I used old paint I had in my box and have no idea how old it was but its all I can think of that caused these problems other then rushing them a bit as well. But today I put the final masks on and the final coat, and then started cursing as the paint started to wrinkle up in some areas and not in others and then some of the green paint came off when I peeled the delals off today. So I will take a mulligan, already started stripping it and got fresh supplies. It was close but not close enough.
  5. paint or powder?

    after a lot of thought, everyone is doing the same thing. I decided to go a little out of the norm and try my artistic side a little. Abstract! I kept messing with it a little here, little there till I finally had it perfect and put a nice coat of clear on it to protect it. I can do this to any pieces of your car for you if you want. What do you think?

    I will be down for one
  7. paint or powder?

    After deciding to go with paint I realized it all started with primer so I scuffed it and shot it with some high build to help fill in some scratches already on it.
  8. paint or powder?

    This was my thought from the beginning but the more I think about it, it would be neat to add a little flash to the area. I thought about skinning it in cf, as well as polishing it but I am a little tired of both at the moment after other projects. Satin black, and gloss metalic green and red were both under consideration as well as maybe a nice graphite but the more opinions the better.
  9. paint or powder?

    I had to pull my air tank out to get to some wiring under it to check for my voltage problem and while it is out and not rolling I am going to take advantage of the time to finally make it look better then a raw tank. At the time I installed it I was too anxious to get it working to take time out to make it perty but its always bugged me. Its mounted to the base of the back seat, on the floor behind the drivers seat and I am going to build a cover to go over it like I did on the pass side, but it will be seen from time to time esp if its perty enough to show off. I was just going to get it powdered either a gloss or probably a satin black and slap a decal on it, but the custom options for paint make me curious. I know my powder coater has $75 minimum that this would be around so I have thought that I could put a nice simple base coat on it and then let an air brush artist have some fun with the decals, maybe make them 3d or something? So if it were you, what would you do? part of me wants to keep it simple/durable with powder and vinyl but the other part of me thinks it will be protected under a cover eventually and could look pretty cool if done right... all opinions are welcome.
  10. The momstangs rebuild

    I am still chasing my tail on my ignition wire power problem. It has 12v on it while in the run/crank position as I can verify by simply turning the key with out pushing the clutch to actually kick the starter but as soon as the starter kicks that wire drops down to 8-9 volts and it resets the power on the system as if I have tuned the key off/on real fast. I have not gone through every inch of my power and ground wires from the battery to the starter cleaning/tightening where needed and replacing many of the stock ground terminals as they had become corroded. I could have just sanded them down but I already had gold ring terminals so I used them to ensure they were on fresh wire as well. But that didn't matter. I thought maybe what looked to be the stock 23 yr old starter had seen its prime but the new one cranks faster but the dash still flickers off/on. Didn't matter. I thought maybe the grounding on it was dirty so I added a ground strap I had to a clean section of the frame but it didn't matter. I thought that while there was no signs the wire was bad the stock power wire going to the starter might be too old and I already had enough 4 awg and the terminals so I replaced it but it didn't matter. I decided to pull all the non-essential fuses in case they were pulling current for some reason and was amazed how hard it was to pull some of the maxi fuses out as some had pretty bad signs of corrosion. The 4 40 amp fuses feed the ignition/starter circuits so it was possible that the dirtiest one was bad enough it created some resistance and was doing this and I was amazed when after they were cleaned up and replaced that the car for the first time cranked up and didn't make the dash flicker. But really now dirty fuses!? It had toyed with me like this before where it acted normal right after I did something, and then the next day laughed and flickered again. By this time I had been in the 10 degree garage for a few hours so I decided to put the charger on it and try it again today. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand it flickered AGAIN, I cursed AGAIN, and again walked away pondering how much easier it would be to part it out. I am going to replace the ignition switch even though it shows that its working perfectly fine as well as the fuses I cleaned up and get some contact cleaner to get inside the fuse box but otherwise I am really not even sure what to check now. I spend a couple hours 2 nights ago flipping through my OEM wiring bible but I am really out of ideas now. The only other thing I can think of is to run my own wire for the starter/ignition but not even sure about that........

  12. ThomasW's Two into One build

    I like it but I think I would smooth the transition on the sides from the lip to the bumper up until the raised center section if it were mine.
  13. ThomasW's Two into One build

    I think I would try to keep it shorter but put some shape on it so it a smoother transition into the bumper instead of the traditional flat splitter.
  14. ThomasW's Two into One build

    Just my opinion of course, don't get me wrong I love custom stuff like this but I think the more it sticks out it just kind of ruins the cobra nose. I know everyone wants it to stick out and have the rods on the front but I am more curious how it would look if it were shorter myself. If it only stuck out an inch or two more like just a lip then an actual true splitter. Also don't forget the nose is not meant for much down force on it. If you make it to big you will need to figure out some reinforcement either for the bumper or some kind of support.
