That's not bad, at least looking at ZZP's setup, that's only about $500 more. Not an insubstantial amount, obviously, but small enough that I can see it being worth it.
It's not really a consideration for me. I'm currently being trained as an engineer to make the world's leading coil springs :beer:If you're working full time, and can afford coilovers, and you have the SS, and this is just a daily, not a sports car, would you consider bagging it? Obviously it's more expensive, and much more involved, but the adjust-ability and damping are really well suited for daily driving.
Thanks man, i'm not wanting to get quite that detailed with this car lol. I've soldered the blue LED's on my 96 gauge cluster so i don't think it'll be hard at all to do that again in the wimpala.Yeah, that bulb guide is accurate. The 194s work for pretty much all the interior lights (mirror lights, rear dome lights, shifter light, courtesy lights, etc) so just get a bunch of those.
As for the cluster lights, they're soldered in. You'll need standard 5mm LEDs and resistors and solder them all in. I followed BBEs guide (Impala/Monte Carlo Cluster Bulb Conversion), and it made it pretty easy.
If you want to do the rest of the switches and lights in the car (window switches, lock switches, SWCs, etc) You'll likely want to order some 3mm LEDs for those, as they can be a tight fit. The driver's side window switch is the toughest because they used one incandescent bulb for all 4 switches, but since LEDs are a LOT more of a focused beam, you need one per switch. I had to get creative in there to get it to work, but now 3 of my LEDs burned out. So make sure you get high quality LEDs so you don't have to go back and do it again like I do.
First, watch this video:I know there's a whole lot that goes into them, and you can't just throw out a full technical brief like it's nothing, but what are some of the advantages of the carbon bellows style spring, and generally how do they work/how are they constructed? This was the first time I had seen them.
That's the beauty of molding, we can customize them to replace any spring. I'm not sure if we have one made currently that can replace a 2.5" ID spring i'd have to check out different mold sizes.I really like those, and I understand what you're getting at. Are these available to replace a standard 2.5" steel coilover spring?
Lol nobody will know about that now that i've "restored" the plastidip. My buddy told me i need to do these wheels the same way I did my SS wheels. But i'm honestly wondering if the SS wheels will fit under this car with some properly sized adapters... Hmmm.....Can you hear that? Out there, off in the distance. It's the sound of those wheels crying out for the same awesome PlastiDip job you did on the SS. Seriously though, the car looks good, but I think black or semi-black wheels would be a nice touch.
