    This is what 1-ton suspension and private pothole filled unmaintained country roads will do to your coil isolators after just 300 miles.

    Zip ties are the champagne of roadside fasteners. Could’ve made it even more classy, but it’s pouring rain. 1A36B60E-2FF7-49E3-B231-73D547BB0248.jpeg

    The annoying part is pulling and then reinstalling/adjusting the cowl just to redo the isolators. Thanks MSD!

    Use a couple of riv-nuts in the firewall. Then you can use bolts instead of self tappers.

    They’re actually isolator bolts with a nut behind the firewall, then bolts that go through the coil into the isolators. Your idea is better than what msd supplied with the coil though. I’ll look into that as a way to fasten it.

    I feel your frustration. My old fumble fingers makes it even more frustrating trying to hang on to them tiny nuts. Had one that eventually backed off. Put star washers between the surface of the firewall and nuts along with a dab of blue locktite . That has stopped the backing off problem

    My isolators actually sheared in two. Half the rubber bit is still bolted to the firewall, the other half is in the coil.

    I've seen some junky bolts, but those must be complete shit to shear off on something like that.

    Saw this driving to work this morning.
    Maybe not a total fail, but really?
    I don't generally think "that 2000 malibu reaaaaly needs a spoiler!"
    Add the black racing stripes (on the spoiler only), and I think it qualifies as a wtf/fail. Lol....

    Spoiler too wide for the car, check. Racing stripes for extra speediness, check. I-81, check. Yep all fails.

    That spoiler adds at least 40hp. Then another 5 for the stripes :shrug:
