  1. I purchased the size that correlated with my current ducts. They were just a tad larger but have been holding up well. I haven't driven the car too much but did take the week of car week in Monterey and maybe 600 miles or so. I would need to verify what I ordered from them to know or remember what size I used. Once the wheel is off and the inner wheel liner you can remove and measure the ducting where they clamp to fairly easy to ensure you're getting the correct size. Just remember to ensure their long enough for the job.
  2. Thank you Destructo. Still learning how to edit and add things "like text" but thanks for the input. More to come as I dive deeper into the Murci down the road. Appreciate the compliments.
  3. First off thanks for watching. As I start this YouTube channel "Double B's Garage" I am trying to bring content which will help others when tackling some of the same things I've been working on or fixing along with creating interesting videos. Thanks to Stimpy on here for some of his help with the alternator and cross reference lists already created by others on this forum before me. Appreciate this community! Cheers and I hope you enjoy, Bryan
  4. Stimpy, we need to chat! I am in the middle of this now on my LP640. I just replaced the hoses for my PS pump so removing them wasn't in the cards but at least their soft enough and I can suck all the fluid out of the reservoir first to reduce what spills out upon removal down at the pump side. I will PM you but questions I have.. - Did you end up removing the cross over pipe for coolant? If so, was it necessary? - Did you have to loosen the catalytic converter on the LH side next to that bracket? The heat shield can't come off as one bolt is right up against that exhaust. We thought about cutting it and slotting it for later ease of access but won't be able to do this anyways until it's out.. Did the removal of the entire bracket help to eliminate the need to loosen the exhaust? - Does the PS pump slide out straight back out of that coupler (almost looks like a rag joint that you would find on a steering shaft) once the bracket was loosened and slid backwards? - I notice the belt rides up and over that PS pulley but more as a guide is it rides not he back side (non grooved) of the belt. Was that a pain to get back in? - Were you also coming in from the bottom with a long wrench to loosen the tensioner for the belt? Thanks for any help! Trying to get this fixed (I keep blowing fuses) before Monterey... Ugh

  6. Stimpy, do you happen to know the part number for the AC drier?  I ordered the Compressor but forgot to order the drier for my Murci.  Thanks for any help!  You are a great contributor.  Cheers, Bryan

  7. I ended up having them made using a water jet. They were made to the exact specs of the previous ones using identical ABS and then I routered the edges to taper just like the previous version. I called and spoke with no less than 5 companies that either looked similar or didn't have a picture and couldn't find out who made them. I did make 4 other sets so if someone wants a set let me know and I will sell at a reasonable price. The only thing you will need to do it buy tapered SS machines screws and the threaded inserts so you can make holes where they need to be mounted. All holes in skid plates are already there and they fit very well as you can see in the pics. Thanks to those who helped.
  8. Thanks Phil!. I will continue to contribute then try again..
  9. I ordered I think 7' then cut in half.. once they were installed and steering was good I had about 4 inches up front that I trimmed before putting the bumper on. Since their so inexpensive I purchased longer in case I messed. Same thing with alternator pipe.
  10. I purchased from AircraftSpruce. Here is the link. I did my brake ducting and the alternator vent line. https://www.aircraftspruce.com/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI--7y7JTZ8QIVtBrnCh33qABoEAAYASAAEgKcoPD_BwE Here are some pics of loose install before buttoning up after paint.
  11. I have a carbon steering wheel I'm trying to sell from my 08' Murci but it won't let me list in here on the classifieds.. do I need to join or pay somehow to do so? Thank you! Bryan
  12. I literally just did this... I tried all options (except the one above) and finally with a commercial steamer it worked out well. Mine was yellowing and I used my buddies steamer from his tint shop. Steam and slowly pulling (too fast you lose the adhesive which stays on the paint... not good) it worked. My knuckles and fingers were sore afterwards as 70% of the car was removed. PM me if you need any further details and I'd be happy to chat. Cheers, Bryan
  13. Thanks Double. Unfortunately they are showing "unavailable" from Lamborghini at the moment. Hoping this is just temporary.
  14. Okay thanks for info pmdw1. Trying to figure out if its worth removing or leaving... having trouble finding one.
