Not bad for one can of primer, two small rattle cans of touch up paint, and a can of clear coat. Need to hit it with one more can of clear coat and I will feel it’s good to install. Also I heard mixed reviews when it comes to sanding gel coated fiberglass, so what I did was run a green Scotch Brite back and forth to give it a good haze then applied the primer. It works!
How it looks installed
Hot days are here in San Diego. Engine bays get hot! They’re all designed to have hot air escape from underneath the car. Some people op for heat extractors and/or vented hoods to help more hot air escape. Some folks remove the entire splash guard so that hot air blows away faster when driving. I like to keep my splash shield because it helps keep water, rocks and other road debris out, preventing components from getting damaged. And in my opinion I believe the shields help guide air to the engine bay. Since I don’t want to attract too much attention with a vented hood, I decided to use ingenuity. But first, I wanted to guide cooler air to the combustion chamber.
Now for the “engine bay cooler” I removed the OEM windshield washer reservoir and replaced it with a smaller one.
Definitely will help guide hot air out, and it’s also pointed at the exhaust manifold.
Ahhh yeeea! No need to use them as brake cooling ducts, because I am no racer. Never claimed to be. Just a Runner.

Wars, viruses, politics, injustice all in our minds nowadays; it can be hard to focus on good things and to be optimistic. Especially love. Love of all forms. The heart only knows love. Even if the world is ending, all of that doesn’t matter if you have a love one by your side to go through it all. You enjoy every single second with that person. Happy birthday to my wife, my love, the mother of our child and my better half. To many more! 🥂
Fun fact: we don’t always eat meat, but when we do it’s for special occasions.
Don’t skimp out on quality parts, even if it’s a silencer.
Old vs New
The shiney one is much more quiet, but restrictive as hell. And it’s all due to this design
It forces the exhaust flow around the blockage and through the holes on the inner cylinder. While the newer one has only a center opening on the inner cylinder. It’s a tad bit louder but not by much, and definitely not as restrictive.
Notice you can still hear the music! Definitely a good silencer if you want to just “cruise” and not attract attention. Peace for now.
