    Gen 1 Dash Refinishing

    I am curious to find out how this turns out. I assume the paint you ordered isnt like the original in terms of being 'soft touch'. Is it a matte? I refinished mine in matte black because 1) I didnt dig this deep looking for gray, and 2) I assume my gray vinyl on the knee bolsters and console...

    Is there a correct RTV for the valve cover oil baffle plates

    I sent my valve covers off to be stripped and powder coated. When cleaning them up before shipping I saw each valve cover has what I will call an oil baffle or separator plate (see picture) ******* into the top of each cover, which somewhat isolates the PCV and oil fill ports from the splashing...

    Lots of "play" in steering of a gen 1 viper

    The movement in your video looks like it is between the rack and pinion gears inside the rack. Almost all rack and pinion assemblies have a preload spring and/or ***** that presses the pinion gear against the rack thru a bushing. Some can be adjusted in the field, some not. If the preload is...

    Hood Gaps

    I had similar issues with my '94. I am not sure there is a real simple cure as the cause can be a combination of things including poor alignment of the bumper supports, adjustment of the from hood stops and latches, deformed or damaged front radiator support and maybe other things. In my case...
