I have two of them here for testing, and frankly, there's not a whole lot of pull force because of the spacing provided by the rubber sheet. I may have to substitute stronger magnets, or take more drastic measures (e.g. removing the magnetic sheets and replacing them with a 1/8" sheet of steel). Stay tuned.
    You might have a cover but it won't seal. The surface area is far from flat after you cut an access door. I ended up sealing mine with Valco Cincinnati silicone gasket maker.

    Have some of that stuff handy if it doesn't work out the way you intended.

    It will seal anything and bulletproof strong. If you are looking for alternates I use Permatex 81878 Silicone Gasket Maker as well and I think just about any exhaust shop uses this too.

    The PEM nuts didn't turn out as good as I hoped. If you use the gasket maker, you won't need screws. The surface wasn't level enough for a thin layer so I laid it on thick. I used a couple screws to tighten it down. I really just wanted it completely sealed and the original gasket left too many gaps. It's not low modulus - dries to a hard rubber. You would have to cut it out with a razor to remove and scrape both sides to reinstall like any other gasket.

    A fab shop could have made a nice flange for a perfect showcase fit but I settled for the gasket maker stuff - it's under the seat anyways, well supported and out of sight.

    I see in a few other threads you're up and running. Did you shelve the spindle swap?

    Re: pig in slop

    What a long thread! I'm glad to have shared all this stuff in CF. It was the first forum I joined when I purchased my CTS-V. A lot of guys moved to facebook "CTS-V VS The World" where worlds collide with V1 and V2 owners. I believe the heart of the community is there. As much as I enjoy social content there needs to be a place to explore the platform freely with no restrictions, a place well preserved, modern and maintained by V enthusiasts - specific to the V community.

    This thread started here on CF and evolved to becoming a 'sticky' on LS1tech and the work continues on VSeriesForums.

    If you're referring to Fuzzy's deleted posts and pictures, he did that himself. Looking at the moderator log on this thread there has been a grand total of one moderator action, and that was me moving the thread to the Performance Mods forum way back when the thread started.

    Re: pig in slop

    AAIIIC is correct. Moderators did not interfere or interrupt with any content on this particular thread. It has been clean and free flowing the entire time. I keep all my stuff on Photobucket and do no remove it so that way all the pics can be preserved even if I move to another forum or facebook. Content is content and I try to preserve the stuff in the past as well as moving on.

    This was a clean fun thread of learning so lets keep it that way. I still draw on some of the references so many contributed but evolution takes its place and the content continues on VSeriesForums.
