___One of the best paint out there for that part will be "Dupli-Color Metalcast anodize" if apply correctly it's very resistant.Come in different color,here is two color I work with up to date "red on my ex 944" & grey on my 968 spark plugs shroud & rad cap (see pics)

timing belt functional. uber wunderbar!

I wrapped up my first timing belt/balance belt replacement by turning the key.........and it made sweet sounds. oh but then smoke came from behind the ac switch and ruined my f@#$%# day. so i got a pair of pliers and i ripped that lil piece out of its complex lil home. springs flew and i tried to hand my girl what i thought was a long lost nose piercing, but it actually IS part of the switch. Its OK, the AC grill out front had a bunch of rocks selectively lodged between cooling fins and had thence spent its chilling capabilities back into the atmosphere. the radiator had 3/4 cup of sand and smaller rocks collected in its fins. look at your radiator!! its designed with the end caps on the left and right, and the cooling fins looka like this> VVVVVV sand thats passed through the AC grill settles in those riffles.....on mine, the bottom five rows(bout two inches tall) were filled from front to back. i carefully picked rocks n such for a few hours, gave a fresh spritz of paint before i reinstalled. I plan to remove AC BS cause its cold up here...never even noticed it wasnt working. really have no clue what the smokin switch was about. starting to run , out of ram bling p o w e r, must work on car!!!!!! all of this and more has been toyed with over the last three or four weeks, BUT IT STARTS AND RUNS AND THATS WHAT I DID TODAY!!!! just had to vent some.

In the past two days... had the whole paint detailed. Looks much better. Removed heavily cracked stone guards. Armor all'd every single piece of black trim around the car... the rubber bumpers look 20 years newer. Replaced a faulty driver side seatbelt and the door handle seals.

Added touch-up paint. Used a SOS pad to clean up the exhaust tip and add shine. Cleaned the carpets. Added brand new hood crest

Got any close up shots of fender w/out stoneguards? Mine are absolutely awful looking. So many cracks they look like a jigsaw puzzle. I know I have to remove them, but not sure what I'm gonna find under there...

I wasn't sure about the stone guards but I had a local guy remove them for $40... there is just good Guards red paint under the stone guard... they are just pasted over at the factory. I'm not sure how to remove them safely, I asked the guy and he said what he uses is basically a big eraser, he had his own tool to go with it but I think it was basically a polishing device, and he had multiple compounds, not just regular polishing compound. I'll go snap a picture of where the guards were.

I have a lot of experience detailing car & will give you this piece of advice, never but never use Armor ALL on your cars,for all rubber & plastic trim including interior dash/seats/trim & also safe in your engine bay use "Meguiar's Vinyl & Rubber cleaner/conditioner # 40.They are lot more expensive products out there but this one will do the job just fine

finally got it back on asphalt and off the jackstands. The exhaust note is better than I expected. Yup I'm liking the exhaust.
