            It works in LSR! Lots of pizza box airflow enhancements.

                    Stripping vinyl off old material sucks bad. Hours of not-fun.

                    I had long-ago planned on building a tank for the Camaro, primarily for having something baffled to quell the side-to-side slosh/slam. Maybe in a few months.

                    I had to look in my cabinet to see what kind of penetrant stuff I had, it's Fault Finder brand, ten bucks each for red and white at MSC: Crack Detection Kits & Components - Crack Detection - MSC Industrial Supply (mscdirect.com)
                    This is a reasonably priced set up, but it's part of a 3 part kit (each costs about $10).... there's also a cleaner and developer.... nice that you can buy each individually and it is about the best priced I've found so far.

                    • Yes the developer is vital, to show the dye coming through. For finding holes you don't really need their cleaner (acetone works), mostly that works best for surface crack detection where you apply dye, then wipe it away with a -cleaner- soaked cloth, then apply developer over the top to suck dye out the same way it went in.

                      I paid around $15-20 each for my spray-cans at the welding supply some time back so if that price is for-real then MSC (hardly known for great prices) is the bomb.

                      Get it? The bomb...like spray-bomb...nevermind.

                        onto the tank - experience has taught me that head space is helpful in tank design

                        an hour here and there and it will be done

                            • fuel level

                              I'm fairly sure these are older then me but still work fantastic on 16 ga stainless

                              that is not an impact driver and I wouldn't dream of using it with my punches

                              installed

                              weird, magnets stick to stainless

                              yet somehow they didn't before

                              OBX welded the inserts in place.... ugh

                              NO


                              I think round one will still be bolt the cones in place and hope it drops the dbs enough. I'm going to autox at PIR before Optima - if it works, great, if not, they toss me and I figure something out in the 6 or so weeks between that event and primetime
