07 S, leak from the drivers side radiator end tank. With the clam off I plan to install brake lines. Will also take a look at the heater diverter valve (no defrost unless I close all the dash vents and turn the knob to dash setting). No A/C car.


Anything else?


Thanks,

HID's are easier to install....also if you plan on changing your front grille to mesh, now is the time to do it.

Just curious... are you replacing the radiator? Would this repair be covered under warranty at the dealer? My `07 S is leaking as well.

Exige? Driving lights. The clam has to come off to replace the grille unless you simply want to cut the original grille.

Don't want to add driving lights. HID's? I guess that I'm one of the few that is satisfied with the stock lights.

The radiator should be covered under warranty. It is a 10 hour round trip to the dealer, I'd rather spend less time here fixing it myself correctly (Sector radiator) and mail them the bad radiator for credit or a factory replacment.

I don't trust the car that far away from home.

One of the other things that I'm planning on doing is to trim the area that the mounting tabs rest against to the turn signals are less prone to breakage. I've bought 6 of them.

Also, my passenger side low beam is a little unstable so I'll check this.

I think the HIDs are a must myself and agree that clam off is the best time to do them. Also the horn upgrade and the heater valve mod.

For the horn I used the high and low pitch from waytek (Welcome to Waytek Wire). Most of the pep boys type are metal and heavy - these have plastic bodies. The sound is much louder with the two tone than the stock single horn. Bolt them straight on to the crash structure and get rid of the bracket to save weight.
