I'm not sure on that. But the good thing about plastidip is, you don't need to worry about it. Anything you don't want it on, it will peel off. Use a razor for the edges or it could tear. I would just take the whole dash piece out and mask it.

Ya I plasti dipped my hood awhile back. It only peels off easily if you do a thick enough coat otherwise it can be a p.i.t.a lol.
I don't have much wood trim like the newer models do so I don't really want to take the whole dash off... anyone else know if its just clipped on?

It wouldn't be the entire dash that comes out, just the center section really, it takes less than 5 minutes.

Poly mounts are installed, I have poly bushings in the mail to compete the dogbones poly setup.

Have a GMPP sway bar that's going in with the new transmission next weekend, trans also getting the transgo shift kit.

Also coming with the poly bushings is a throttlebody made for the supercharged 3800 from zzp, they call it their stage 1 high velocity throttlebody ,72 mm and my stock throttlebody 65mm so quite the dramatic change! the car will need to be tuned again from the air increase(cant install it without a tune or the engine will run way to lean and throw a c.e.l) luckily overkill is coming back to ontario to visit so I will be getting a incar retune from him. picked it up for $100 and they are $299.99 brand new so a good steal!

ALSO got a waterpump underdrive pulley for $30! dyno proven for 8 hp and 10 ft/lbs of torque across the enitre rpm range so pretty excited for that for the price I paid. nothing dramatic I know but I paid more to build my own intake which probably gave me less horsepower then this will lol.

trying to get my car into high-mid 14's with parts i find used/cheap. only engine mods I can do now are:

Performance heads, which are to expensive for the little gain you get from a n/a 3800 so not bothering

Cam OR Rockers which ill probably end up doing rockers cause the are MUCH easier to install.

pics will come when the parts arrive.

got some parts today
the zzp l67 hvtb, 72 mm so 7mm bigger then my stock one, gotta wait for overkill to tune it got him booked on june 22nd, bought a new 4'' k&n filter and made a new 4'' open cone setup. did a open cone setup as i recently seen a dyno chart for the 3800 comparing a cold air intake vs open cone, and the open cone got 2 whp more lols, mostly like due to less piping and turns intake to try and get ambient air.



$10 used poly bushings that are on the car already so poly setup is done now



and the throttle body spacer so i can mount the tb on hassle free.
