Looking good there, Deez; that Lowes strip calk is similar in principle to my (huge) calk that you were too intimidated to find, so no doubt just as effective. And nice job wiff the insulation, too, and ****. Like you'll see for yourself, every little bit adds up and helps make these things rolling meat lockers on command, even in the hottest of hot weather, and all that available cold powaaaaaa' means the system doesn't even have to work that hard to hang icicles on yer ballz.

Remember that there are two small holes (different, butt the same, to what you have going on ) in the bottom of the smuggler's box - one that the drain spout on the evaporator box passes through, and another close by that is a drain for any water/condensation that might end up in the smuggler's box (on the outside of the evaporator box/housing) - don't want either of those bisches covered up.

Work em open, Deez, work em open wiff loving care!!!!


Forgot to mention that I have the same style evaporator (different make, butt looks identical) - really kicks ass compared to the original tube and fin unit (that sucked by design, anyway, since brass tubes were bonded to aluminum tubes and are known leakers because of that).

So did you buy new hoses, or are you having yours re-built at the local hydraulic shop?

I'm so far behind I just bought the whole kit. Right now I'm trying to get AC, Suspension and Oil Cooler done.
I'll see where I'm at when that's done. I'll probably need to wait until next winter for the Turbo, exhaust and transmission work.
I've always done the chassis work before the engine. Power is worthless with bad suspension.

Best dam tool ever!!! It's so much easier to work on the car. If you can put a MaxJax in your garage.

Every time I manually lift a car (and I've done a lot to make it easier on myself - including home made stands and a really good, floor jack), I think, "daaayuuummmmmnnnn, this is some bullllsheeeiiittt"! One of these days, Im'ma get smart like you, Deez!

I have stacked Jack Stands on 4X6's to get extra height. But I'm still on my back on the concrete. To stand up and remove the tires. To roll around on my creeper seat and remove all the hardware for the hoses in half the time. All without rolling around on the ground on my back...
Sum biatch.. what a revelation at 44. $2k isn't chump change, but at my age it was worth every penny.

Yup. I figure I'll never get tired of working on cars. But my body will. Time to start making it easier.

At the risk of ***forum dating*** commentary, it always amazes me when some folks pipe up with "anything butt guards red" and even say that a 911/930 in that color is inherently worth less - they look spectacular in red and it really fits the era and image of those cars (aka - flash, excess, pimp, etc.). And the argument that guards is too common doesn't fly with me as there are hardly any of these cars on the road anymore; I live in an extremely congested area (DFW area), and never see any aircooled Porsches out and about - talking maybe once or twice a year.

Personal taste, I know, butt it's hard to believe that some people prefer flesh and puke tones, and that those colors are commonly refered to as "desireable" with reguard to sales!

Thank you . I dig the Guards Red. The only down side is people assume it's an 80's Turbo because of the color. I also dig the Guards Red because it's not original to the car and saved me $40k+ over what others were selling for. The PTS color the car came in is Indiana Red.

This is the only other one I have found in that color.

That is one hell of a machine. The dude used to post here all the time ("juicer" was his handle, if I remember correctly) - was one of the owners of DZug - guess they went out of business since they no longer have a website or sell their custom, performance parts through Pelican.

I've never cared for that color (looks like it is something better suited for a Cadillac), but I know that many people like it.

Looks like a Jeep Waggoneer colour if its metallic. Half my plane is painted that colour.

It is a metallic color. It's not the best color. But it's not the worst and not a common color.
They used Guards red for so many years most people can't tell one car from another. I may put it back someday, or not.
It would look classic 70's with some tartan seats.

Whether it's a good thing or not I still have the floating rotors.
