xixixi - where did you get the 18mm nuts with 1.25 pitch thread for the O2 sensor relocation DIY? I looked everywhere (Lowes, Home depot, autozone, advance autoparts, and napa). No one carries anything larger than 16mm.

Thanks!

I was waiting for someone to ask this... You can't get them or buy them... I made mine Buy the plug defoulers from autozone then take a drill and drill them out like you would for your extended bungs (to remove the o2s from the exhaust stream) Once you have drilled out the clearance for the o2's to fit they will slide right on. I feel shitty about your 02sims. I have the same sim in my garage collecting dust. We should have just gotten this **** done. Split the tool costs and be done with it. Anyhow, I really think if you went to get your emissions (take it to a place you wouldn't normally take it) They would be too afraid to **** with your beautiful car. They would just look around and say yep it passes. Just my 2 cents. I have the bit size if you decide to go this route man! GL

Your buddy was telling me a few tricks about that water and how to work with it. We sprayed some in class but you know how that is. He said if you bake the panels and bake the clear. (while in the gun) That it helps with the drying time even in this humidity. I can't wait to get into the field. Do you know if we can plastic weld these bumpers? (oem) Universal ribbon?? or no? Thanks bro

I actually bought the non-foulers about an hour or two ago and was going to drilled them like you said, lol!

Thanks for the emissions tip... but I don't want to risk it. You said you had a friend you could hook me up with? I have all the parts for the DIY and might tackle it this weekend. I still need to figure out how to get under my car to get the O2s out. Do you have any free time this weekend? As long as I get them out I have the DIY figured out.

I will have some time off this weekend. Sunday is the best day for me. With the right resistors (can wire in later) you don't even need to relocate the 02s. I can bring my oem jack plus another and 2 jack stands. My car is still sitting at Bavarian, I hope I get it back this week! You can get emissions done and even if you fail they give you a piece of paper that allows you to drive for 30 days. Yes, I can get your emissions done, once it's sim'd.
