The foam, however, needs to be replaced and I may put some more heater hose on instead. It sorta springy and seals decently.

    Sure. Just as much as a non-baffled.

Wouldn't have been so bad if I didn't happen to run into a construction area with no detour when new tar was being put down -.-.... heard rocks and crap hitting the wheel well and god know what for a solid 2 miles. Suuuucked.

    Took the cover off and sighed.

    Forgot it got alittle dirty from last week, seriously debating paying someone to clean it for me. Have to pick someone up for a wedding later and the Jeep is on my shit list. Probably just needs quick detailer, but still not in the mood.

    I swear gremlins come after me and laugh their evil asses off and see what else they can make me do.

    That and the f'ing cats. They are obsessed with sitting on or near my car.

    Took a nice 800 mile cruise on Sunday/ Monday to Carmichaels, PA and back to Kearny, NJ. Averaged 25mpg's doing 75-80 all the way out and back. Got "lobster-ized" on the way back, drove all 400 miles with the top down. Paying for it now, though. Just turned 49,300 on my return. Going to HATE goin over 50K! Probably won't use the car much now til the TA Nats. Got my room reserved, just waiting for the Goodies from the show. Unless there are some nearby cruises to go to ( Staten Island, Wrong Island, eastern PA, etc.)

    Fair enough, but yeah it was pretty cool. I found two pictures on the computer, and she traced them off the monitor once they were blown up, then measured the lid and put it on a bigger sheet of paper actual size, then just drew lightly and colored it with a paint marker. Looks sweet. Throw a clear coat spray over it and you're good to go!

    will it hold up to the heat cycles or not crack over time?

    Not if you mix it right...also heat shield tape should be used on the underside.

    JB Weld might also work...I did some filling on my FAST 90 Intake and had it powdercoated.

    how would JB weld bond to composite plastic?

    I also planned on using the heat tape.
