its not "cool" one single bit
Well, people post some dumb stuff sometimes...... the bubbling is a major issue, it's not cool or wanted or desired in any way, shape or formDaddyCat on Oct/09/10 said:Quote: MorningZ on Oct/09/10 its not "cool" one single bit
OMG Steve you crack me up somedays. I hope the carbon fiber turns out like you want. I'm happy the new suspension is working well for you.
For information sake, its not the plug that leaks. Its the O-ring on the plug. Those aftermarket plugs are a bling factor only.tlangy on Oct/09/10 said:Send me the gauge pod whenever, i have plenty of leftover fake and real CF from my last projects. Also, keep an eye on that OEM cam seal plug, it's a piece of ****. for bling factor you might want to check out the ebay ones if it starts to leak.
It makes perfect sense when you consider that it's "covered up" by an o-ring, hose, or some other type of seal that expects a nice smooth surface to mate with.JustinKlemgold on Oct/05/10 said:Mask off something that is going to be covered up...that doesn't make much sense.

^ Well said. Plus, Am I the only one who likes unmasking something that has just been painted and seeing the results?! Ha its quite rewarding.drcheap on Oct/11/10 said:Quote: JustinKlemgold on Oct/05/10Mask off something that is going to be covered up...that doesn't make much sense.

This seems to be the case on the cap, breather, and the 8 stud holes that have washers. Same goes for the threads inside the oil cap hole, some of that could potentially flake off into the head after repeated usage of the oil cap (and the cap gets plenty of use feeding oil to the VTEC gremlins).
I guess they'll still seal well enough since it's not exactly a super high pressure area, and it's mainly sealing against vapor and splashes of oil. I would have spent the few extra minutes to do the masking though.
