Thank you very much. :)
Well until my work situation gets better I wont be doing much. I am hoping to get the interior lights that I have installed at some point as well as get the video hooked up to the head unit. After that Im not sure until I get back on my feet.

Wow, very cool Dee Dee. After all these months I finally looked in the project thread, and what do I see........ Blu. Blu is definitely coming along very nicely. I just got some nice new pedals on my baby as well, and love them. How do like yours? I really like the whole blue theme going on. It's weird how the small things that most people would over look, makes a huge difference in my opinion. Looking good Dee Dee, keep it going. Take care :thumbup:

Thanks a lot :wink: Yeah I like the sills an head unit too. Cant wait to get the video hooked up an see what its all about lol. We debadged it not to long ago, didnt take long at all. You should do it, I didnt think to much of it until we had it done lol. Looks a lot cleaner for sure. I want to do the doors but Im kinda scared to. Im afraid of faded paint an the doors feeling like they will fall apart afterwards. I have seen some that was done an they just dont feel as tho they have the strength once the moldings are takin off... we will see lol ya never know what I might do LOL :rofl: Thanks again for all the nice comments an hints lol...

So, another day closer to the weekend. Any plans for Blu in the near future or just going to kick back and enjoy him the way he is. I know I've asked before, but I'm old and don't remember details as well as I used too, Blu is a him right? I'd hate to misrepresent! As it stand right now (if I don't lose my nerve, that is) I'm going to strip the doors down this weekend. Keep you fingers crossed. It's about the only mod I can afford right now, Free! Anywho I hope you have a great weekend, take care. :D

The only things left is to install the under dash/seat lights an get the video hooked up to the head unit right now. After that I might lay low a bit an get caught up on some bills. Before you know it the holidays will be here again an I dont want to be broke lol. To me Blu is a guy car lol. Girls dont look so mean when you look them in the face LMAO.

Hope an your family have a great weekend as well! Be safe! :)

12-29-07 Diverse Concepts Car Club Decal added. Last Mod for 2007. Next thing is the moldings... Im working with our body graphics guy - we will see what comes next lol... I might... I might not.... shrugs I really like this decal:

Image

I was thinking Orange, Chrome & black. But now the more I look at it - the more I dont know. Im looking at other stuff now.

Also, I added ram heads to my door sills so they didnt look so plain.

I'm glad you added the caption of what your decal said because if you didn't I would've never figured it out. :rofl: lmao.....

Just my opinion, but once you remove the door moldings Blu will look even more kick ass than before. Once I stripped down my baby it was like night and day, soooooo very sexy. ;) I can't seem to take my eyes off of her. But as far as the body graphics go, I would wait and just enjoy how Blu looks stripped down. :) If after awhile you think that Blu needs a little somethin, somethin then you should proceed with the graphics. I must say that your new door sill graphic looks great, I like them a lot.... :thumbup:

Yeah, I'm with King on this one...I'd hold off on the graphics for awhile. Then, if you still think it needs something, look around on the net at all the designs you can. There are some horrible designs, and also some real decent ones. I'm not much into graphics myself (even though I do have an AAR Cuda stripe...that's different), but I have seen some pretty clean ones that accent cars nicely.

Take this one for example:
http://www.decalfx.com/body_graphics_kits/kit1032.html

It's not a radical design, doesn't cover the whole car from the headlight to the tails, and it just kinda gives a little different look to the car.

Silver painted calipers look so good. Removing the molding makes the car look so clean, gets rid of that grocery getter look you know. :wink:
