Re: [DML] Re: air conditioning.



By doing this mod i didnt plan on it being reversible.

Difficult to remove, so what it is behind the door panel, who looks 
there? Even on a concourse car do you see the judges remove the door 
panels and say " hey he has foam in here, deduct 10 points".

I used the SLOW expanding so nothing gets damaged. I did a test run 3 
years ago on sealing my house with this foam, so far no damage and it 
has been 3 years now.

Duct tape... isn't that hard to remove when it gets sticky? Wont it 
damage the inside of your door panels that nobody will ever see? Wont 
it be hard to remove from the plastic? I have seen what damage duct 
tape can do.

With this mod my vents blow so hard it actually makes my hair move and 
hits me in the face.

Foam didnt get inside my duct, and if it did a razor blade, X-acto 
knife, butter knife, screwdriver or long stick would scrape it out. And 
if it did, who cares because it is my car.

Everybody come see this mod at DCS if you believe any harm will come to 
your car by doing this, look for VIN 06683.

P.S. i have had several requests for pictures off line and everybody is 
impressed on how well the vents are sealed.

You know you cant please all of the people all of the time.
