HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

While working on this kit, I've found these products to be indispensable. The
body panel adhesive holds like steel, and the flexible foam, is great for filling gaps
between parts and preventing rattles - both are pricey, but well worth the
investment Exclamation

I just bought some 08115 with mixing tips and the gun for $89 on E-bay.

Here is a shot of what I used the foam for. Being concerned about leaks and moisture getting into the interior panels and causing rust, I sealed off all the openings with fiberglass matting
(thanks to Mike [87-944S] for turning me on to that stuff), then I shot 3M 8463 foam into the gaps between the body part and the area sealed off by the fiberglass. Coming out of the gun, it has the same consistency as the panel adhesive, but within 15 seconds, it foamed like crazy! You need to work quick with this stuff because the tip mixes the compound and you will have a unusable tip within 30 seconds of stopping. I trimmed of the excess, I then glassed the work with more matting - essentially sealing it off.

I blended the tubs into the body and must admit, look pretty good by themselves. My wife thinks I wasted a whole bunch of time and effort trying to make something look good that is only going to be covered by the shell of the bodykit.... I just wanted make sure I didn't any issues with leaks down the road - no pun intended. I have some minor work to finish on the passenger side, but should have the shell on later this week.

glue properties

Post  xschop on Mon Sep 14, 2009 10:05 am

Hey sky, your project looks more menacing than a V8 swap Very Happy

My question... how does the 8115 adhesive harden-up......solid, like fiberglass resin, or does it have some softness/give to it where it can be indented with your fingernail?

I am watching closely because I have the AllPorsche Racing Bumper delete and I want to smooth it into the rear fenderwell so It doesn't look like an Add-on....

Impressive skills and patience there.....

8115 hardens like a fiberglass resin, but it's way stronger! A thin dime-like application is next to impossible to break - no give at all! AllPorsche Racing is the same company as IFC - I have the delete kit also, so you'll be seeing it here!! I couldn't believe how simple a solution it was. With a kit as costly (and embarrasing should it go wrong), patience is a must! Thank you for the compliments!

nice

Post  xschop on Mon Sep 14, 2009 1:31 pm

cool, someone else can be the guniea pig on a mod Very Happy
I will be watching. Does 8115 sand very well, like fiberglass resin?
It sounds like an acrylic resin, the polyurethanes have a touch of softness to them. How about the foam, is it rubbery or does it tear like plumber's foam?

Don't quite know the technical terms, but it sands well (and you don't have to worry about pocekts of air), so if your surface and sanding block is flat - it will sand flat. As for the foam, I thought about that stuff that you would find in the spray can at the hardware store. This is nothing like that - it stays flexible and does not get all 'crumbly'. You really have to work at it to tear - but at 40 bucks per applicator, I don't think you would not expect any less.

I bought the delete bumper off tha bay and I don't think it will arrive with instructions. From the pics it looks like the stock rear bumper shocks have to go or be modded. Do you have an idea?

Basically you remove the stock shocks and put the part on, (BTW - Tetzoue, when are you coming over, man?) then bolt the old bumper on (trying to see if you need to leave the rubber on or not). Really low-tech solution - makes you smack your head and say "Why couldn't I have come up with that!?"

The 4th row of pics down is the bumper I will install. I hope this is the same one you're talking about. I want to flow the side area right into the side marker lights where it doesn't look like an add-on.

They are steel - as a matter of fact, they had the Tru Value sticker on them. That's why I said it's a pretty low tech solution and you just mount the bumper to that, then put the bumper cover over the bumper.

ghetto

Post  xschop on Mon Sep 14, 2009 7:26 pm

can the bumper just be left off? I mean if the shock is tossed there is no impact deadening/resistance anyway. Also if the bumper stays, does the cover get glued to it?

Don't think it's a good idea to leave it off without 'support'. But that's about it - bond it to the bumper/rear of the car and you're done! I was sorta scared to not have additional steel back there (especially here in MD). May not be NHTSA/DOT certified to 5MPH, but it's more than nothing.

Guess I'll go out and get a caliper. But all it is, is two pieces of angle iron with a 1" piece of square stock sandwiched between. I'll get you the dims.

With the bumper on I couldn't fit the rear on, so I had to cut the kit. Here's the driver's side.

Sorry for taking so long - I was out attending a seminar. Here are the photos I took prior to installation.
