Re: Mach ! Resurrection

While prepping was in it's final stages I took the opportunity to do the drivers seat cushion, never done one so here goes...lol

You can see the lower was all worn out on the left side of the seat, typical wear as its the most used..
as you can see the lower is universal for either side, same for the upper, lower just had to trim for the power seat switch. Easy enough
upper cushion was ok but since I had a new one its going in..

The seat cushions have a Velcro strip so they attach themselves to the covers, just need to work them into place.

Turned out pretty good, still need to work the covers and work them in, the local set trim person said I did good for my first ever...

Re: Mach ! Resurrection

Ah paint is done.....who hoo!!
took a littler longer than expected...they tried to match the paint with the water base and couldn't get close after several attempts with test strips
the paint rep had to come in and digital snap a photo and the end result was that since the car was paint in the mid 2000 they used solvent base, so when we mixed up a sample and it was a perfect match!

Here are some shots..

The parts were painted late Friday evening, so not gonna install the front bumper till Monday as the paint is still soft and any hard handling could leave some finger prints in the clear..lol so better to wait...head light bezel and front clip to be all aligned Monday. Sticker also to be installed on lower front fender Monday as well....
Only bad part is we are expecting 15 cm of snow Monday..so the car will have to wait till Thursday before I can take her home..

Re: Mach ! Resurrection

Nice!! Keep up the good work.
Mine's in the shop getting plugs, front end freshening and some other mechanical attention that I've neglected of late. After that, I'll go after more cosmetics.

Are those Nitto's pretty sticky? I have Micky Thompson Street Comps. I didn't expect them to stick as good as drag radials, but they are not sticky at all LOL.

To be honest the MT are a better Drag tire, but the drive like ***, never balance up good, slight vibration, but as a straight line tire nothing is better!

I went with the Nitto as the compound is soft and once heated up stick pretty good, I run these on my Shelby 315/35/20, My marauder 305/45/18 and now the Mach 315/35/17...from my experience the nitto drive and handle better even designated as a drag radial.

they do offer a 305/40/18, here's the comparison between them..

I like the fact that it's a 27.6 inch tire vs the 25.6 the 35 series is...

I know AFS says they will be re popping the 18X10.5 mach this summer and may jump on a set as I already have 4 of the AFS 18X9...


Dimension

Tire A: 315/35 R 17
(26 x 12.40 x 17)

Tire B: 305/40 R 18
(28 x 12.01 x 18)

Difference


Width
Sidewall height
Overall height
Circumference

12.40" (315.00mm) Width
4.34" (110.25mm) Side wall
25.68" (652.30mm) Tire Height
80.68" (2049.26mm) Circumference

12.01" (305.00mm)
4.80" (122.00mm)
27.61" (701.20mm)
86.73" (2202.88mm)

-0.39" (-10.00mm)
+0.46" (+11.75mm)
+1.93" (+48.90mm)
+6.05" (+153.62mm

yeah a 40 is too tall for my setup, for a number of reasons. Its cool though, my 555R takes care of business. The nt05r tread design is awesome though and i know they hook a tad harder if you get them hot enough.
