Bad ass..................

Painted, clear-coated, acetone on the windows, acetone on the connection side of the louvers. Let the car sit in 90 degree full sun, rear window is hot as f-ck.
Use the super strength full one inch 3M automotive adhesive. Press on one side, hold. Bow the second side, pull the tape liner and on she goes !

Left her in the sun for five or six hours.

Here is the technical stuff for 3M automotive double sided tape:

There are a few types, and the strength varies. The strongest is the series 5952.

One square inch of this stuff can hold 55 lbs, when cured correctly on a properly prepared surface. So picture two adhesion lanes on my louver left and right. Both lanes are at least 32 inches long by 1.5 inches wide. I use another layer of .5 inch wide 5952 with the 1 inch wide 5952. Do the math, holy **** thats alot of strength.

-20 minutes after application, it has 50% of its tensile strength.
-24 hours of curing it has 70% of its tensile strength.
-72 hours it has 100% of its strength.

Thats at 72 F. Push the 90 F plus and the crap is accelerated substantially, especially with a few hours really fucking hot followed by the cool down of night.

The car was in the drive curing in the sun. It was parked in the opposite direction I usually have it. So from the street, the rear was visible. The six year old across the street named Cooper said he really liked my new car, but wanted to know what I did with the other car. I told him this new car swallowed the other car like a big fish...........!

I did add a rubber trim leading edge on all the in board sides of the fins. I also trimmed in the entire assembly with black silicone. Very professional fitted appearance.

Heat ???

I took a trip to the lake today to do some boat maintenance in prep for a whole weekend of wake surfing. Its in the mid 90's here now with 100 plus heat indecies.

I actually saw my ATF get to 131 F for a bit after a few boosts. Turned the fans on, she dropped it right down to 122 F LOL ! 131,....oooh thats blazing................NOT.Hahahaha.

The CERMA coolant, anytime Im coasting down any kind of incline, I see 172-176 even in this hot ass weather

So the other night I went to light up everything,....noticed one of my HIDs wasnt lighting up.I was like Dam !! Diode dynamics warranties these thing for three years. Man I hope the ballast hasnt went. So I pulled the headlight off the front,sure enough it was the ballast, but...............the connector had just worked its way loose,HA ! So I re-connected it. Sealed it with some T-Rex tape. Job done !
