well, another small update. i took the rear spoiler off and plugged the
holes. just a feeler, but i think i like it.. if i do decide i like it, imma get
a pvo spoiler for it, and remove both the third light and key lock for a
clean finish. course, i gotta lower it first :lol:

Looks like your car has no panties on from the back.


Idk if I like that. But it sure is smooth.

okay so technically, this one was already payed for.. just was sitting
in my closet, waiting to be installed. so i still haven't gone against
my promise yet!

so anywho, srtjesse helped hook up my gauges and i finally got them
installed. we broke both upper clips, but jesse donated a pillar, so
the pods are finally right where they should be.

Image

i've got a vacuum, oil pressure, and voltage setup. the oil isn't wired
in yet due to the fact that its mechanical and i don't like the idea of
oil leaking into the cabin of my car..

i'm working on something top secret too, but i can't tell what it is yet. :shock:

i'm hoping to have the project somewhat finished either today or
tomorrow. depending on how much i can get done before i have to
go to work. its nothing too big, but i might be the first to have done so.

well, it was a lot harder/easier than i thought it would be.

but i swapped out the mirrors in the passenger visor for a mirror with
a sliding cover, just like the driver's side

Image

its always bothered me that there was only a cover on the driver's
side... so i fixed it :D

It doesn't fade and is a material instead of a fabric. I think its amazing. Wrap the A pillars in it and mmmmmm. $90-100 a square yard though.

I picked up a few sets of visors today, so it shouldn't be much longer before I
have a few up for sale. I also found illuminated visors today, but they're not for
sale, they're MINE :twisted:
