Plasti-Dipped my aluminum wheels. They were oyster shelled and the clear coat was stained in several places. Even after power washing them, cleaning them by hand and de-greasing them with Zylene, they still looked like crap. I'm amazingly happy with how they turned out. First time I've used Plast-Dip.

Hammer on wheel weights FTL. Should have had a local shop replace them with stick on weights before you dipped them.

Now change them to run HID's in all of them and see what kind of output you get!

I have 4 sets running now. Quad retro, fogs and the WARN's I changed. Still have my rack lights which will add another 2 sets of HID's but haven't hooked them up at all as really not needed. But will eventually just cause they're there!

The beatings will continue until attitudes improve!

Sounds like something else is going on. Adding another fan will only bandaid the issue. Relay and thermostat are done, so should rule those out as the issue. First question is was the system bled properly. Air trapped can be an issue. Also the waterpump could be an issue itself. This is of course that the fan is ok.

Well I do know I need to replace the water pump. That will be the first thing...for now. And then I'll go from there.

Once you do make sure you get the air bled out. Hopefully it'll solve the issue.

As for doing anything on mine today, nope. Need to switch out the rear springs but too damn sick. Instead hacking up a lung or two.

Ok thanks. Rock auto has the pump for 35 or so and says it includes the gasket.

Yep, I had the same problem. Previous owner let them corrode really bad to the point where it wasn't removable.

Picked up a few cans of Plastidip and couldn't be happier.

I may do the same to mine. I have the BB in the garage. I'll have to see how mine looks with just the fronts. I don't see an issue leaving it like that. Looks much better!!

Cleaned!

Still didn't come out good, the paint is pretty trashed out. Lots of places where sap and bug guts have ate the paint off. But, all shined up, I don't think it looks bad for an $1800 car.
