Re: Poor man's WK mod thread

What about "Water Wetter"? It's < $15, and it's supposed to keep tour water temp (up to) 20' cooler!!!

Re: Poor man's WK mod thread

Hey Jeff, how'd you get the .44 shell casings to stay ON the the original door locks? I wonder if shell casings from my OWN gun would fit (Glock 27 -> .40 subcompact).

Well what i did was ti took the original pulls out, shortened them about a half and inch. Then the sanded them down so that th casing just starts to go over the pull. Then i pressed them on using a vice and boom done! Then i went back to the doors. Thread the new pulls back onto the rod And adjust it so that it will sit flush or just slightly higher then flush. Once adjusted to the hight you want, press the rubber gromet over the pull and back onto the door panel and reinstall the panel tk the door.

I think trying .40 would be iffy. Only because you will need to remove a lot of the plastic off the pulls. And they would be loose in the doors and rattle..... but .40 makes an excellent cap for your vavle strems! I have .40 casings on those, they fit perfectly on the black caps and all you need to do is super glue em on the caps and let em dry. Dont worry about them coming off eighter, they have been over 120 and all 4 stayed on.... ill get you pics in a bit, they are on my computer....
