  1. https://www.rubbertherightway.com/window-channels-sweepers-fuzzies-window-sweeps-fuzzies-9418-ctg.htm I Had issues until I changed my search terms Oldchool guys call these "window fuzzies" hah! Last one - you trim to fit with a angle grinder. use your old one for angle to be cut. Then use the smallest black pop rivets you can find. The staples are a PITA without the right tool and come loose if done by hand
  2. Congrats on Picking it back up! I would suggest you force libricate your engine again after sitting for 10 years. I can't comment on the headers and electric PS - But I can comment on the Radiator Fan. In my talks with a Holley guru over on ls1tech he conviced me to go with a C7 Z06 radiator fan. When I purchased it it was $239 shipped. Its a 3000CFM at full tilt fan and is pretty massive. It has a built in shroud which with some trimming I made to fit on my core which was a universal GM core from eBay for $150... The fan is a SPAL unit, with built in -PWM controller. All you need to do is get the proper plug kit for it as well as suitable size wiring (I used 8awg power and ground wire) Hope this helps!
  3. I went with truck spacing accessories and was able to fit a truck alternator AFTER clocking the casing 90* to move the positive post away from the motor mount. I also have a sanden low mount using dirty dingo's low mount and had to notch the motor mount location.
  4. I also love and appreciate your no BS approach to this. Also your note about expanding foam. Im going to be doing this now on my LS Build!! I LOVE IT. What do you protect the outside portions of the engine bay when using expanding foam? Im thinking of making an engine cover with this approach.
  5. Just got her back from paint! Putting her all together again. Can’t wait!
  6. Awesome job so far! I would say the same for Interior Innovations. I ordered mine through them as well. My seats did come out much tighter on the leather than yours. Few notes for other's attempting tp re-cover seats. - Re-use the old metal framing / ties as they are surprisingly a decent quality piece of metal. - Ditch the Wire ties and use only hog rings. Takes some practice but a 45 degree hog ring plier work WONDERS. Start in the center of the flap attachment - Get new seat cushions - they were $300 pre-covid price increases. I needed to trim the head rest down 1.4" (Sliced off the back side) and I trimmed down the driver cushion so my head wasn't hitting the roof. - Use the thinner cushion backed headliner material glued to the back of the seat. it makes sliding the covers on SO MUCH EASIER and has a very nice look and feel. Nice job! cant wait to see her done man!
  7. Good luck! please document if you can make it happen under $100 because i need a bead roller and cant afford the conversion / dont want to haha
  8. awesome stuff man! i need to make an airbox for my intake as well!
  9. Nice way to dig into this... Curious as I have a polly mount on my LS Z but only put about 30 miles and never gone above 50mph. Ill report back to you if i dont have these vibration issues.
  10. Ive got one! sent you a PM
  11. Nice call on the C7 fan! Its what im using Will keep their contact noted.
  12. Dude - your build needs more attention! Amazing job so far i cant wait to see it done man! Who is the contact that designed the rear end? Im currently a LS base build but will eventually add a supercharged and I know my Z31 CV's will take a shit
  13. Do yourself a favor, but the Inteiror Innovations and be done with it. I was held up on the leather and coat… pulled the trigger and LOVE the fit and finish for the price. It was not a hard process either! Long time follower and your work is top notch. I tried to hunt online for months for bucket seats, tried a few from other cars and they just didn’t look / fit right. So I overhauled my OEM seats!
  14. I hope it brings what you see the cars value AND plenty of smiles for the new owner! Heck that’s why we build these cars! Some to enjoy the build process, some to enjoy the finished product! Best of luck -Don
  15. Before you wire that switch direct to your Column and starter signal be SURE and 100% that your 12v+ while cranking also works for your ECU / Fuel injectors / Fuel pump signal. Many times this contact is shorted on the old ignition / key module. MSA sells a replacement for it as well.
  16. Do you have any spoilers fro a 2+2?
  17. Hey man, I used some 2" aluminum to mount it to the top and bottom portions of the radiator.... i would have like to weld side mounts to use the stock holes but I dont own a TIG welder
  18. You're not worried about chewing that transmission to shreds behind a LS?
  19. Depends on computer you will use.... I went DBC for a few reasons - I wanted to use the Holley Terminator X - $1000 model... So i went DBC - Cheap and reliable and can be make to look nice on the install. DBW would be amazing also for a cleaner look. If staying stock computer and your engine you buy has a DBW setup - run DBW. So long as you have the pedal and what not.
  20. Nice! I did the Tanks Inc. PA-4 for my LS swap. Love it! Nice and quiet!
  21. ummmmm why not run a PWM brushless fan and adjust accordingly... Running to cold, reduce the fan speed. to hot, increase the fan speed.
  22. congrats! Nice job on the fire extinguisher as well!
  23. A gentleman on Instagram / Holley Forum - "Projectgattago" is his screen name and IG handle. Was either going to use a fusion fan OR a C7 fan - the C7 fan has a "spal" logo on the back - needs to be the AC delco part. Yes its brushless - the key here is its from a 2014 to 2017 C7 Z06 OR Grand Sport. They came wiht this upgraded fan and wholly shit does it move air!
