There's already companies out there that make real wood interior kits if you'll willing to pay the price but may take the fun out of makin' your own.

Heating up a plastidip can before using it makes the rubber paint thinner, therefor giving a better texture on the painted surface. It really works wonders when done right.

Correct, and if it's too cold (like been sitting out in the garage in this weather) it won't go on right at all.

There is one guy I know of making his own out of real wood. He has the shift knob done so far. The other trim is wrapped in 3m vinyl, but I think he plans on doing all of it.

See, something like that is what I mean. I've even considered doing the upper half of the steering wheel as such.

Of course, I'd probably use a different finish- something a bit darker- but the idea is there.

Pulled off the TB and cleaned it and the iac. Looking down and I got a kegger full of oil from bad plenum. If it worth it to replace the gasket without doing a full plenum fix? Should take a few years to fail again right?

These are all I need to do the job yes? http://www.amazon.com/Fel-Pro-MS9539...1&s=automotive

I'm a little cashflow challenged right now but I've got some amazon credit leftover from xmas.

That looks right. I would replace the whole thing with the hughes kit If it were me. However, I think it's Newfie who just replaced the gasket and applies some gasket sealer to both sides and reported that it's been fine for a couple years so far. You will need some new bolts too. And don't use those end gaskets, just lay a really thick bead of RTV in their place.

I like the end gaskets. I did put a big booger of RTV between them and the side gaskets, though. The Hughes kit is nice, but for half the price you can get one from Brian that's the exact same thing (plus you'd be supporting a local vendor so ).

If I had the $$ I'd be putting new plates in both of them, but if I had the $$ I'd also be putting the M1 intake on the niner and claytons on the green one.

I'm between jobs so plenty of time and no money. I have a gift card thats funding my amazon parts spree.
