    Good Luck with that, RA uses email only. As I stated in previous post, you are experiencing again the same issues my Automotive Class has experienced MULTIPLE times. Corner markers that leak, fill up with water, fog up with moisture & reflective backing just peals right off, etc, etc.

    1G Rear Sun Shade.

    If you live in a very humid or utterly sunny :) area like ENC (Eastern North Carolina), this device will help reduce the :cry: heat OMG that absorbs into the interior.

    2G Stm Arp bolts for FP Exhaust manifold.

    1) By all means, use a thread chaser at least. 2) Clean the threads, blow out with air. 3) You need to adjust Torque Spec when using Lubricants, which will change the torque setting to slightly lower spec. 4) What bolts are you using? 5) Do you have the original packaging, showing bolt dimension...
