    Today I put the sunvisors on the correct sides..glad I dont have the seats in cause I'd hate to try and get in the right orientation to do those screws easily.

    Also was going to replace some of the hoses on the coolant pipes, til I realized I'm gonna have to replace alot of the clamp things. Also noticed the hoses I got from DMC-H were like 3 inches longer than the ones that came off the car. Do I need to trim these?

    I'll prolly go to Home Depot or Autozone to get new clamps tomorrow.

    Top Tip... You probably should not use the standard hose clamps from Home Depot. The kind with the slits in the band do not provide even pressure and can cut into the hose and cause leaks.
    Use something like these ...

    Not these...

    Regarding the hose length, you shouldn’t need to cut them unless a particular joint would work better with a shorter connector hose. I’m thinking at the radiator there was one joint that benefits from being shorter due too a close bend near the pipe end, but my foggy recollection is 20 years old too.

    Do whatever you feel is best for you.
    Btw, that 1-1/4 Gates hose is a stock item at most auto parts stores.

    When you cut the hose, a trick I use is too snug a hose clamp with one edge as the cut line. This makes an edge for the blade to follow. A break off blade slide type utility knife works well. Wet the blade with isopropyl or rubbing alcohol, it acts like a lubricant too let the blade glide through the rubber. The alcohol will evaporate fairly quickly leaving no mess.
