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 …

That's what I was originally thinking. The only question is if it will bond correctly. Plastic forming might be able to be done at the house as well. Here's a couple examples:

Hopefully the method can form around the badge to the back, in which it can be trimmed flat and then stays in place based off of the installation of the badge. If it ever goes yellow (and hopefully it won't based on the plastic used), you could always cut it off and reform another piece onto the badge. All I know is that I have no plans of installing this badge as is, especially after what happens to them.

Results of the Polytex trial

Post  fliermike45 on Mon Oct 31, 2011 8:15 pm

I finally got around to testing Polytex on my hybrid hood badge.

It's a two part epoxy product that is easy to use. I prepared the badge by covering the rear with masking tape to collect the drips that overflow the edges. I carefully trimmed the tape flush with the edges of the badge. I cut a small wood block to stand the badge on while I applied the Polytex.

Polytex must be mixed in equal proportions and poured over the badge, I had to gently rock the badge to distribute the epoxy. Excess was allowed to drip over the edges. During mixing, air bubbles are generated and will show in/on the poured surface. The instructions suggest you hold the flame of a blowtorch about 8 inches from the surface or exhale your breath on the surface. I did the latter and was amazed to see the bubbles rise and disappear. Something to do with Carbon Dioxide. After the Polytex was poured I covered the whole thing with a clean margarine tub to prevent any dust settling on the surface. Polytex cured overnight and pictures taken.

Pictures show the badge front with the Polytex cured, the rear before I pulled the tape off and the rear of the finished item. I did not have to do any trimming as the tape removal left a clean edge.

PM me if you might be interested in having your badge covered with Polytex.

I don't have a solution that I know will work.... I'm not about to drill larger holes in my hood only to have to put the stock badge back on.

Simple solution

Post  fliermike45 on Tue Nov 01, 2011 1:40 pm

It's real simple.......I have a spare header panel, if you know what you are doing it can be changed in 20 minutes.

Guess on hot days I will change over to the stock Porsche header panel, and switch back to the hybrid for cold days.

Just concerned that the site said for indoor use only, I wonder what UV will do to it. Looks great though!

Hey Mike,
You have any updates on your badge? Was just wondering if your coating worked.
