Bad Zula #497

So I've decided to keep all of my small up grades in one thread in case I'm not buried in my 90 (#497) searching for my smaller tinkering projects will be easier to find for the new owner!

RockWare Bumper

This went on pretty easy... the mounting holes on either end didn't line up to my satisfaction so I'm leaving them for Matt to address in the summer when I go out for the rally. He's going to do some other smaller things also.

Removing the old tire carrier was more difficult than mounting the bumper. After it was removed, I preped the holes with netralizer then seamed the area with gasket goop then I took and newer, no longer needed license plate and cut it to size and applied dynamat to bothe sides then rivited it in place. It's a temp job until I figure out what the final fix will be.

Speed Transducer

So whom ever designed this configuration was simply brilliant. If I had the hands of a five year old this would have been a breeze. To top it off the new one fell apart in my hands because the glue holding it togeather might has well been ardvark saliva...

I've set it up with gorrilla glue and we'll see if it's holding in the morning. I bought the thing from a well known supplier and I'm sure they are unaware the over seas product is crap.

I've always loved the design of that RW rear bumper. Interested to hear feedback about durability, rattles, etc as I would love to go this way soon. Your 90 is amazing, keep up the great work!

The bumper worked out great, but of course the down side is you have to let your passengers out. The other down side for me is that I didnt get any of the extras like the can holders and such. I think if your going to shell out that kind of cash go "All In" even if you dont use the extras..

All in all its worth it, no buyers remorse!

Exmoor Right Hand Seat - rear

So finally installed the seat and it was pretty straight forward. The quality and design are good...well 1k for a seat and even I'm wondering how much fun that can buy at the gentelmens club...!! just sayin....

But all in all good seat, looks good and is alot better than the inward seat.

yes it does, but I didnt quite have the finishing touches done when I took those photos. It's a two handed operation to fold them up and requires the strength of an adult.

Eastwood Products- Plastic Restore

So everything I've bought from Eastwood has been pretty good so far so I thought I'd try the plastic restore product. I read a post here, cant remember who or when, saying it wasn't worth it and it made little improvement.

I used it on my mirror back as a test then used it on my door handles. I like it and think it was worth it. I'm going to use it on my faded center console this weekend.

Eastwood Plastic Restore

Ok so, while preparing to install my "New Puma" front seats...uh yeah...well anyway I thought this would be a good opportunity to pull out the center console treat it with the plastic restore goop from Eastwood, after using it on several test pieces.

I like the stuff and it does a fine job...the problem I could see is I was compelled by my OCD side to apply too much...with this stuff less is more. in the end I used tissue to wipe the excess and let it sit for 24 hours. attached are before and after...the result speaks for itself...not a greasy feeling if you don't over do it.

yeah sorry about the resolution...I'll get the good camera out later...it's not splotchy at all and there is a sheen but its not like Armor at all with the Crisco feel...makes the thing look brand new...almost. Before it was faded to medium gray but now its dark gray. I will take some photos late this afternoon and get them up.

No Problem...That's the motive behind the post. It seems like a good product. And considering I slathered it all over my NLA Ultra Rare D90 Console...well you get the idea...http://www.eastwood.com/eastwood-rub...tore-6-oz.html
