These were some random universal thing on ebay. I need to see if there's a way to aim them. They work but a couple of the streams dont even hit the windsheild at all.

I did reroute the hoses and all in through the cowl so they dont hang out in the open though.

Let me know if you can’t get them sorted. There is a slight chance I might have some extras of what I used stashed somewhere.
Thanks. I should be able to figure something out.
They work like they are. Each nozzle has 4 streams coming out in a big X. I just have a nozzle that has 2 of the streams not hitting the window

So the alarm I installed started acting up. The proximity locking portion didnt work. And I couldn't get it to remote start. So I pulled it back out and started working on a replacement.

This is the mess we had going on.


So I picked up one of these things here.


I installed it here in the console out of the way.

And when it was pretty much over the mess now looks like this.


My proximity lock works now. The remote start works now.

I don't have the App on my phone to make the alarm do stuff, but thats actually a good thing. The old system used bluetooth which is easily hacked which maked the car easily stolen. This new system I can add a GPS module which runs off a SIM card like a phone which will give me my App portion back as well.

On top of that I have a better feeling keyfob.

And I have a keypad in the window now that if I have the code I don't need a key period. I'm still amazed everytime I push a button through the glass.


As soon as I figure out where my wiring is wrong it should close the windows for me when I arm the alarm as well.

And after everything is put back together.


Then I went through and put my volt gauge back in the pillar.




Also I got tired of the big rips in the seats so I swapped these in.


And when I got bored.

Decided to do something about all the chrome on the front of the car.

Took it apart and sanded it down and then no more chrome.

Then with a little polish.

So I had a dry spot. And got a chance to pull the front rocker cover.
While it was apart I did a little upgrading.
Yes I know I still have to do the back cover however I have to replace the inlet manifold gaskets anyway.

So starting the day.


I had a brand new lower intake sitting in the shed. And found out its actually the bigger ports.
Here's what was on it.
The ports measured 30mm and 32mm.


The one now on the car measured in at around 32-33ish mm and 35mm.


So I figured why stop there?
Put the Higher flowing intake I had polished years ago on it.

And the higher flowing throttle body.

I think these need to be about half size but just testing this out.
