    couple of ?'s

    Ok so i was washing my car today and i noticed some of the weirdest things. I've had the car for a few months now and i don't believe i haven't noticed them

    1. my car is missing the lil car door ding thing on the left side but it has the two other pieces on the door. the right has it though. Wtf could someone of stole it or did the previous owner take it off. i attached pics so you all would no what im talking about. are they easy to take off and will it ruin the paint?











    2. The driver door does not have the lil stopper thing so the door will swing wide open but the passenger side does. wtf where can i buy one for my drivers side

    Yes the rubber "things" are just glued on. You can order em pretty cheap.
    On the headers...take your time and do it right. Slow and easy.

    ^^^ Yea it might have been in a accident...it looks like the Trans Am badging on that side is a little low compared to the other side also.

    on the headers....
    Get the car as high as you can get it but do it safely if that's even possible. It gets pretty dangerous at those heights on stands so what I recommend is getting it high enough to get the headers stuffed into the engine bay then lowering the car back to a more reasonable height to finish the install.
    Change plugs at the same time. Might as well since you'll be there anyhow. Don't bang the new plugs with the headers, you take a chance of busting the ceramic so be careful.
    Make sure there are no wires touching the headers, they will melt anything that even looks like a wire if it's to close.
    Buy premade extensions, don't use the extend a wire junk. I see way to many people have problems doing that.
    Don't have your wife or girlfriend help you. You'll just hate each other by the end of the day. Find a buddy that doesn't mind getting greasy and bloody knuckles and buy him a case of beer.....after the install.
