Hey, I was looking for ideas and I came up with puting the new side vents on my 97. I am geting a new paint job and bumpers so I figure this is the best time to try. Does any one know the dimentions of the new vents, will it be able to cover the old vent hole? any help would be great.

ps: when driving a very loud vibrating noise come from the engine when I let of lightly at 2100-2600 rmp, it goes away if I maintane speed or totaly let off the gas. any ideas. sorry for spelling and grammer any help "on the car" is awsome

Man that's a great job, kind of like the Ferarri and high-end cars. Do you now feel pressure to keep your engine detailed

LEDs

A few LEDs in the engine compartment, wired to the speaker system would complete that MOD.

its like to loud in side. most would not want it. I just used lexan cut to a close shape I had draw out then heated it with a blow torch. Many people I know who have tryed heating and bending lexan have broken it many times trying. Just go slow let it air cool and go bit by bit, we used a simple weighted rig to let it cool on and keep the shape. Then got it cut to fit after it was done. kool for the price. you can probly get it if you dont know any one who has some for 50$ for that size and cut to shape. we used foam to seal it because it would look bad with all the curves to fit exact and the reflection on it would look bad to also to much bending. if you need more help just pm me

The one on the web site is kool. it would be alot easyer to make all you would do is have a local shop cut it to shape and they will drill the holes to all for almost nothing. to buy the lexan with that shape cut with holes would be around 30$ US for you guys. Then you cut the stock cover take off the heat sheald then put some nice rivits in and it would look just as nice for 30$ not 700$. I just didnt want to wreck any stock parts for when I sell it.
