Rain channel from trunk was just pouring water down on top of the light. Found some rubber trim and filled the gap.

Hopefully problem is solved. Big rain shower expected tonight/tomorrow so will be good test to see if it hold up now.
Hahahah, This problem has been plaguing many GC owners. If your problem persists, let me know. I'm about to put my stock perfectly functional always garaged tail lamps in pillowcases and up in my storage loft. The original stock bulbs inside still work, lol. They could use a good home. Only serious blemish is that some of the chrome plating is beginning to flake off inside the driver side unit. strange...

Installed Diode Dynamics switchback LED turn signals, and SLF-model LED fog lights. Lowbeams next. Can't wait to get all this exterior **** done so I can take her to get detailed. Also opened up the OEM fog bezel on the passenger side to give my new CAI some breathing room.

What did you do to your Genesis Coupe today?

Deposited the insurance check for my R-Spec that is no more. Rain and high speeds are not always a good mix, especially with no downforce.

I loved the car but I知 not going to go back down the same road, so it痴 looking right now like a Genesis 5.0 sedan could be my next project. (I知 already researching wheels and springs.)

I知 grateful to all who shared their knowledge and love for the platform, it was a great help to me over the years, and will be to new owners as well.

No pics of my now gone 2010 2.0 R-Spec, but like L8Braker I have deposited the check for same. Went to 2016 Genesis 3.8 sedan, loving it. Thanks to all for the great ideas and pics over the years.

DOUBLE SAD!!! Sorry guys, glad you lived to tell the tale and I hope you enjoy the new rides!

I'll add to the bummer-fest, though. Yesterday, I had just two tasks left from my giant list above. The home stretch. Then, as I was raising the front suspension, the fitting to the external reservoir broke because I forgot to relieve the stress from its mounting bracket. Foolish expensive mistake...

On the bright side, it really was nearing time to rebuild them. The scoring on the front rods needs to be polished out, the hoses to the rear external reservoirs need to be replaced and reworked, and I would wager the valve shims are somewhat fatigued all around. I also wanted true rear coilovers and swift springs, which aren't available from BC. So I went ahead and plonked down the cash for a new set of Feal 442s. Bigger and better things, boys and girls et al.

How do you like 4.1 rear. Is 1st gear even useful /hooks on the street?

Did a test hit,not bad.With RE71r 285-35-19's it lights them up but its Ok because I can controll the spinner with pedalling (controlling my throttle input) , I have wider/softer NITTO NT01 305 35 18's and 11x18 rims(rims back order) on the way, it should be ok .Have not test with Nitrous yet .Going on a cruise tomorrow for 7 days so when I get back I will be setting the car up then .Been busy also building a couple of custom 3-gun style AR 15 and 2 custom pistols, so I have a lot sorting items out when I return .
The coolerworx billet shifter is outstanding for precise fast shifting.See you guys in a week .Wife not too happy with my busy body mentality so I bought her a new 4x4 pick up truck (got 1 for myself too ),got a new roof for our 12 year old house (stupid),paid daughter's car off and now taking the whole family on a cruise , But when I get back I will get back to being myself in my "CAVE/Laboratory" building $h!t .Is how I relax AND NON OF THE WOMAN FOLK CAN SAY A DAMN THING ,

Put my freshly repainted lip on. Need to stay back from the cars in front of me in the future.
Using my ramping down driway to gain front end clearance for install of screws.

Installed intake manifold riser, was skeptical but i saw so many people who had it say it helped make more power so i went for it, at first after start up the car felt sluggish and like it did before i got my alphaspeed tune, but after some driving around running errands it began to come alive and as it adjusted to it i could feel a little bit, if nothing else i feel like it gave more torque because the engine sounded much more aggressive and after the car adjusted it pulled hard again, definitely need a retune to see if there are a few more ponies to get out of it, but so far feels good, feels like it moved the power and up more top end

Riser only gains power at mid range -per dyno by 3point8performance.
Car will not run full power until oil temp is 150 deg., but I am sure car had to adjust fuel trims.
If you had custom tune done before, deffinatly need to redo it. Proper custom tuning can only be done with a/f reading expecialy with a riser. Make sure you have A/F gauge or use dyno for custom tuning, otherwise its waist of money.

Yes,it was the Carnival Freedom Cruise ship. I was leaving the gym and heading back to my room when the contest began , I didn't stay for the " Chewbacca " contest as it was called .As I was walking by it seemed everyone was enjoying themselves .
