hehe oops for got to tell that part..
redoing all the interior to a new color.. im considering a nice pearl silver, redoing the stereo and removed all the suede and going to end up smoothing it out and paintiong it , got new sparco suede seats, new custom made harness bar, takata harnesses...getting new steering wheel and quiick release hub too.
on the outside we are gonna change the color to a different green. and clean up a few things here and therem but still have the remove the rear and front windows and then the motor and trans.

the motor will be getting a a new intake manofld that is being sent to the chromers, a bunch of powder coating and chroming with misc. peices and parts. then going to be ntercooler kit for the nitrous. also a koyo chrome radiator.. and a few other new goodies to compliment the hahn turbo. so hopefully all that will look good..
also going to be doing a srt 4 rear brake swap and then doing the upgrades on those rotors..


i think thats about all.. but we shall see hehe.. the girlfriend doesnt like this too much so we will see what else i can get out of it.. im thinkin new j line wheels and tires too..

Deffantly on my top 5 favorite 2gn's, you know what it means to show a car. Its almost a must to change the car drasticly each season. ..... I cant wait to see what you will shock us with this year. :thumbup:

to anwser a few questions and some updates.

first most of those are HIN trophies..some is DUB and some is NOPI but i would say 90% is HIN.. since that is primarily the shows i attend.

next..lol i dont got deep pockets but just a love for modding cars.. the funny thing is i got a 05 expedition eddie bauer as my daily and the only mods is 3% window tint and some tv's... also got my trailer for the neon.. lol but we have modded my girlfriends 350z lightly too.. but nothing to crazy

...i will be selling a few things but the only thing i know for sure righ tnow is the 2 front seats... they are pretty nice and might have 80 miles on them since i installed in 05.

decided to chage the car color to a kandy red. i figured i better make it look different for the 08 season. the inside should look better too.. i got a few surprises.. ill post some more pics once i get some more prpogress..

any comments and/or suggestions for the car would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!!!

well i finally made a few decisions on the car and did some more work to it.
i decided to change the car to a Kandy red exterior and a pearl silver interior.. i think that should make it look different for this season of shows

also i have taken the last door off, the trunk off, the taillights outs, the sparco fuel door off (this was harder than the rest of the car), the hood off, strut bar, a few more little things here and there..

NOW.. MOTOR AND TRANSMISSION TIME!

kool, im kinda intersted to se what ur gonna do with the interior, my only guess is add some more speakers. are u gonna tone the red down to a dark candy red or bright? i do have some suggestions maybe uv thought about them maybe not but here they are, i agree i kinda think the LED tails might look a little better, maybe mold a spoiler in since u have so much molded parts. as for wheels i would try and get the deepest rim you can fit on that bad boy. and somethin that would be really crazy if you mad ur hood CF and fit, not sure if ur doin the work or if ur payin someone, and also not sure if uv ever worked with carbon fiber, but that would be crzy. car looks good. were do u live? i mean like what HIN do u go to

I remember the orange version (ver 1.0 I guess) and the transformation to green was awesome, I can't wait to see the version 3.0! Are you going to be done in time for the July show in Orlando?

Yes, but finding a hood with that kind of clearance is gonna be tough!
