So as any Firebird owner knows, the little hood things on the LT1 style Firebirds collect dirt that does not come out until you wash your car or put the hood up after a rain storm. And then it comes out all over your hood. You’ll see what I mean at the last picture if you don’t already.
The hood is my wrecked one, but it works on a good one just as well
Time: 10 minutes + cleaning time (could be a long time)
Tools: 16mm socket, 7mm socket, drill with 1/4″ bit. Vomit receptacle (just in case)
Ease: Kindergardner could do it if he could reach.
So we all have looked at cloth interior when its aged. not pretty. so i decided to wrap mine in black vinyl to fresh up the interior.
Pull off the panel and look behind it, cut the top half of the insulation off to reveal the plastic rivets. (your choice to put it back on when your done)
Pop the plastic rivets off the panel. there are several ways of re-attaching them so dont worry.
this picture shows the rivets when the insulation is pulled off.
Tired of your peg leg, one tire frier? Worrying about snapping those puny stock axles? Read More
Well last weekend I started and finished the Wire Hide Mod and TCS Relocation and seeing as how I didn’t like the thought of the TCS module just being zip tied like other sites suggest, I modified the original bracket to hold the TCS behind the PCM.
- jack stand
- lugnut wrench long nose pliers
- 1/4 ratchet drive with extensions and 10mm and 14mm(I think) sockets.
- electrical tape (WIRE HIDE and TCS MOD)
- wire strippers (TCS MOD)
- soldering gun with acc. (TCS MOD)
- shrink wrap (TCS MOD)
- hole saw for metal (I used 1 3/4″)
- Metal L bracket with holes (TCS MOD)
- 1 3/4 rubber grommet (WIRE HIDE)
- 5′ wire for extending TCS wiring (TCS MOD)
First thing you’re going to do is pop the hood and admire the mess of wires on your passenger side strut tower. Some don’t mind it, I hated it. I like having a more clean look. This mod does increase the chance of your wiring becoming wet since it basically just lays on top of the wheel well shroud but I have mine taped very tight so I’m not worried. Plus this car will rarely ever see rain. Read More
