Glad the H-Pipe got there safely!

No, I'm talking about the one to my far LEFT. You guys have no idea what you are talking about. The other girls are WAAAY to skinny. There's no junk in that trunk. It's all relative (and I don't mean as in "related" - I was in Bithlo - Chuck will know what I'm talking about).

Can't wait to see the videos, Bill!

Anybody know how to get in touch with Kevin (the CA parts guy) other then through email? I sent him an email about getting the replacement trim panels, but he hasn't replied, yet. And you can't send him a PM. I used to have his phone number. Anybody willing to call him for me? I need right and left 2006 convertible charcoal trim panels that snap on right over where the seat belts come out (I'm sure he'll know what I'm talking about).

Thanks all for the !

The S-Pod has no problems sticking against the Zaino at all. Once you press down on those industrial suction cups, it's stuck on for good.

The 'Original' mount (which I have) is good for over 100mph! There are guys who mount their $4000+ HD Digital camcorders on this thing, it's awesome!

Ray, I'll hit you up for some work once I get some decent digital hardware, not the 'Point & Shoot' I'm using now. Until then, I'm not worthy..

I can't believe that you did that to your paint job.
Yes, I'll to that tomorrow when I set up for my next video installment (in Palos Verdes).

Hey, if I mounted this Pod to my paint, you know it must be safe! I only have those circle suction marks from the silicone (or whatever material they're made from). No biggie, a little Z-6 is all that's needed.

wait as C&L has been on major backorder of these units.

Oh yeah well I have better news than both of you... I got my MWAG rad ext covers and installed them.

Here's some pics.


Bill-Quick run down of install incase you want to make a write-up.

Bolts and stuff provided by MWAG.

Notice difference in bolt length.


1)Remove bolt (10mm)


2)Place cover over area making sure these thingies (pic1) (can't think of a name for them) go under the rad cover demonstrated in (pic2).




3)Replace screw removed in step1 with new longer bolt provided by MWAG.


4)Install plastic screw. (provided by MWAG)


5)Repeat steps 1-4 on opposite side.

Finished product (Full gallery) has pics from several angles to give you an idea of how they fit.

Sorry for the pic quality I was rushing through the entire process. I'll try and post some better pics later. So what do you guys think??? IMO they look great although I'm considering the painted rad cover now. Other than that I wish they'd hurry up on the plug for those of us that don't have the prop rod.

Looks good in the pics!

I wouldn't get a radiator cover. The gloss black starts at the bumper cover, goes up between the lights and grille, and continues to the gloss black extensions. The grille, however, is flat black and continues up to the flat black radiator cover.

Thanks. They look amazing in person. They really dress up and ugly spot in the engine bay. I'm glad I followed your advice and got the gloss look. I know I know but you know me always thinking of another mod. There's like a 99% I won't get the rad cover but you never know.

Only eyesores I see in the engine bay now is that stupid white brake fluid resivour, that wierd black cover on the left where a/c pipe comeout from, and of course the battery.

Spend the money that you would spend on a radiator cover and get an Optima Battery!

Bill - video looks cool! I want to see some more aggressive driving with it on!

Wouldn't look as good as it does on yours. Maybe if I had red somewhere else on the car.

I'll probably end up getting these covers sooner or later, just a matter of time.

Thanks for the comments on my vid.
I'll be sure to kick it up a notch on the next shoot.
Yeah, I took it easy, and you'd do the same if you strapped your camera to the outside of your car for the first time!

I'm not trying to match anything. It's not red to match my interior - it's red because it's an Optima Red Top Battery.

I would have it if I had any color car/interior.

And, yes, it would look good in your car.

You got it! (.. and hopefully no Police cars behind me! If so, I'll keep the film rolling! )

Optima's were always on my list. Just waiting for the POS battery to take a dump.

Thanks but I think I'll wait on the Cover. I just don't want to see the terminals at all.
