I got all new ones until I can route a catch can on the rear one and hide it completely. I'm still on the 100% stock look. Let me know when you may want to cruise and we can hang and stuff. Maybe invite the other Houston guys. Most already have their clicks but perhaps they will come out again. There are a few more people in the area now like Aero, I met him and he is a pretty cool cat. He is just starting on a VR4 that he got with a spun bearing. Let me know, later.
dr750's, ems v2, meth, blah blah blah. but yea she's a blast. i'll pm you my number. just got home and went to pop the hood like i usually do to let her cool down and the hood latch cable, which was on its last leg, had given out. have to pull the bumper to replace it, but after that i'm down whenever. you know of any meets around town? i have yet to go to one. no idea when/where. we should definitely make an appearance.

Man that bites about the hood cable. As for clubs and meets. I honestly have not been well received at the fri and sat night places I have went to on the north side. I know there is one on 45 South by the beltway and it is supposed to have a few guys on here and are friendly. I am going to try a club meet called coffee and cars. They meet somewhere in Houston on the 1st Saturday morning of each month and then in the Woodlands the first Sunday of every month from 9 to 11 am. Other than that I got nothing unfortunately. If you know of anything I'll meet up with you and we can check it out. I don't think any of the Houston 3S guys do anything outside of the tight clicks that don't want anyone hanging out with them.

I need to hit the passenger one again and work it a bit.
Glad its now working , its like night and day when they retract at 100mph ! lol

Can you pick this spray up at a parts store or do you have to order it?

IIRC walmart carries the WD40 silicone spray that Lunchbox used, but most parts stores will carry a couple different brands of silicone spray as well.

I wouldnt use WD40, Just a normal bog standard silicon spray. I dont know what your equivalent is over there I'm afraid so maybe Lunchbox can share a link to what he used.

Its cheap ass off the shelf stuff you need.

I went with the WD40 Specialist silicone spray. I was at an Advance Auto Parts and they had a few and the WD40 had the highest concentration of silicone in the active ingredients and was under $10. The others had a higher ratio of petroleum.

Ah OK, that clears that up then

Our WD40 over here is horrendous stuff....it stinks like hell and is very oily so you would have mega transfer too clothing.

Here is a quick vid i did this afternoon of the silicon spray in action. Obviously the belt wasnt that bad too start with given i know a cure . Even though it retracted reasonably well before hand you can still see very clear improvement afterwards

Thank you for that video. Will spray my driver side seat belt since i need to help it retract.

Hey lunchbox let me know when you set up some kind of meet. I just need to fix a little transfer case leak (its the breather) and then the car will be ready.
