FYI, the only tools required are a 7mm socket and t15 torx. I'd recommend a deep 7mm or a short extension if ya got one, there's tight spaces involved

Those sidemarkers really disappear.

Wow. That looks stunningly good. I was thinking no on the ghosted sidemarkers but yours looks great. I assume those are LEDs under the side markers?

Whatever you do don't look into the reverse leds you'll see spots for days! Ask me how I know?

Looking good Ozzy!

2 of 3 mods done today

So, I got the Clutch Reservoir installed (again, THANKS to TramTwo for forcing ... I mean ... Suggesting this) and my K&N CAI intake.

It was dark when I finished so no photos of the K&N ... plus once you've seen one you've nearly seem them all.

Here are some photos of the Clutch Reservoir. While it's said this is a simple mod, I will say it took a while to execute for a couple reasons.

First, I was trying to be meticulous not to spill the brake fluid anywhere given then paint corrosion warnings. In the process of doing this my turkey injector (yes, no more for Thanksgiving now) jammed on me and the grommet got all munged up. Luckily I didn't make too big of a mess.

Second, while I took the easy path and ordered a unit from JDP Motorsports, it didn't come with the right sized hose clamps so I had to go to the auto parts store which, luckily, was open on Jan 1. Having mentioned JDP, I do recommend their product since it comes with a convenient mounting bracket.

Third, I read someone's account on C5 that he used vice grips to remove the factory clamps. Well, my VGs are mammoth so I had to dork around the old fashioned way with pliers. That wasn't easy.

Frankly, removing the plastic cowl would have made maneuverability, especially toward the firewall, MUCH easier.

Fourth, it took me an hour to realize that JDP's included bracket should be installed LEFT of the brake reservoir mounting hole and not in the gap between the hole and the "rest". I didn't think there'd be enough thread on the brake reservoir screw and didn't try this until the very last moment. As you can see in the photos it worked great.

I hope this posting and these photos help the next guy that instals this. Yeah, I know this is supposed to be a simple mod but I think installing the CAI was way easier and more stress free ...

How many hours a night do you sleep?

Well, I want to stay dirty and not wait for the weekend so I told my boss I need a vacation day and plan to do the grill and Halo lights tomorrow. Wish me luck.

Then I'm going to change the oil at 500 miles (ridiculous?) and go DRIVE the dang thing since it's nice here finally.
