    The Gen 3/4 TPMS system is a very simple one.

    TPMS Light = low tire pressure, but it doesn't tell you which one(s), or what the pressures are.

    The information is reported by each of the sensors to the TPMS module, but the car can't display it on the dash. There's nothing you can do to fix that, short of adding a third party display of some sort that does.

    One thing not been talked about yet is Viper Batteries, Vipers have a tendency to eat batteries, pcm memory, alarm radio memory eem all drain the battery. Its good practice to keep your Viper battery plugged into a good trickle charger when returning home from a drive out.

    Get yourself a good smart charger like a Battery Tender, fit the small extension leads supplied so you can quickly plug your battery into the charger and keep the battery in good condition. All sorts of electrical gremlins rear their heads with a low power battery, from door locks not operating to error codes or alarm issues and fault codes.

    I have owned my car since 2008 and only swapped out 1 Battery in all that time because I keep it on a smart charger.

    Thanks for the advice, it's really weird, side by side comparison my vette is better then the viper in every way..... yet I drive the viper daily and haven't touched the vette in weeks

    I was actually thinking of getting a trickle charger for the vette lol

    Speaking of batteries thr dealer said my battery clamp might not be original and It was loose.

    Is there a good aftermarket strap I could use to hold this down ?

    Do you track guys upgrade it or just keep it stock ?

    Almost finished my paint correction, took a break and did the door panels

    They were faded, worn out and looking real tired.

    Fixed a cigarette burn on passenger side , sanded them down, redyed them in a nice black, then resprayed them in a matte clear .

    Also polished the handles and resprayed the speaker covers in a satin black finish

    In photos I'm not sure how drastic the change is, but in person its night and day, brought them right back to life

    I'll be doing my shifter knob and steering wheel next , as well as the whole back splash area

    Great work so far blue may have brightened things up a bit so there's not too much black, I really like the blue accents on my 2006 first edition

    Thanks sonic

    I agree the blue accents do look good forsure

    I might mix in some high gloss black with matte black for mine

    I'm going to respray the dash and radio/shifter panels a nice high gloss polished black

    Once I figure out how to get them on and off

    Looks great!
    Did you upgrade to the Swift springs? What spring rates did you go with?

    Thanks Brian

    No I didn't actually, I wasn't sure if they are worth it or not

    I went with 12k and 14k , after a 2 month wait they told me it will be another 4 to 6 weeks so I scrapped that and went with 10k abd 12k, which are the regular springs they come with ,and they arrived the following week.

    It's a huge step up from.the stock units , I'm dialed in at 4 clicks to hard , will go a few more clicks in a couple days

    I can always upgrade to Swift springs in the future so no rush

    That looks really, really nice. That color is awesome, and the stance is perfect.

    Now maybe time for a little added protection ..ceramic coat and/or PPF?

    My Viper has CQuartz ceramic coat everywhere and Expel PPF on the front. It's worked great.

    On the Porsche I've been running a grand experiment routinely using P&S Beadmaker over the entire car.
    The shine is every bit as good as the Viper, but the protection to the front is definitely lacking.

    True confession: Am also using P&S Beadmaker on the Viper ..over the PPF and the ceramic coat and the shine is amazing.
    Garage looks like a damn show room.

    Congrats and keep up the good work.

    Thanks Steve , appreciate it

    The coilovers have now "settled" and it's even lower now, love the look, gotta be very careful on bumps as it does scrape

    Thanks viperbase , only reason the car hasn't been ceramic coated yet is because I'm getting two white racing stripes put on , the shop told me to ceramic coat AFTER they are installed.

    Got PPF on my vette and it does do a great job , might give expel a call

    Never heard of p&s beadmaker I'll look into it

    For some reason the foot pedals on my car looked like trash

    Went to town on them, they turned out great

    Might do my gas pedal next20210923_104400.jpg20210923_104357.jpg20210923_104621.jpg20210923_104618.jpg

    Trying to replace all the weathered screws nuts and bolts

    Started with the wheel wells and rear license plate

    Screws for the wheel wells are 10x 3/4 , metal screws

    The license plate ones are metric M6x20 hex head screws

    On a side note my car is so low I already ripped off the bolts on the passenger side rocker panel, I bieve the fenake end is stripped , does anyone know what clips I need to buy or what the part number might be?

    I'll check the dealer but they are usually useless

    I'm sure it'll be fine, but those pedals are textured for a reason. The last thing you want is your foot slipping off of either. Doesn't matter quite so much for the gas pedal.

    Yep its something I was concerned about too, Dry it will be fine, it's when your feet are wet , if it's raining it could be an issue.

    Originally I was just going to clean them with a wire wheel but it still looked horrible

    I'm going to customize something in the holes of the pedals


    Edit- if anyone has a link for a good aftermarket set of pedals I'd be interested to see it
