My replacement double din bezel showed up today. I had the day off work so it was great timing! Hooked up the mic for bluetooth, and put in a relay for playing video while driving. I'd like to clean up the wiring, but I already put everything back together :rofl:

As I took the gauges out of the old one it broke -____- real quality work. I took about 20 minutes to "bore" out the new ones so that the gauges sit snug, but will slide out easily when needed.

WELLL finally made up my mind about wheels. Actually, I haven't at all :( BUT since I can't decide on what I want, I'm just going to run stockers for now. I almost bought a REAL set of rims on Friday, it was between a set of BBS LM's and BBS RG's. After thinking about it, I've decided to put money into boost first, THEN focus on wheels :/

Picked up a set of Silverstones, what I had when I first bought the car :p. Got them with tires for an awesome price! They will be going in to get powdered in the next week or two :D

Hmm I was wondering it was a factory mopar item. By the way car looks good. I would have liked to see slammed pics with those bbs replicas you let go... I liked them. Little to big but the look is what I mean

One of the few non-OEM parts that I like, that spoiler. Very slick.

Put down the initial deposit on my MegaSquirt on Saturday :D almost have everything figured out for the swap / tune (dates).

Front end has been making a lot of noise lately, thought I'd check it out tonight. Driver side has an insane amount of play, looks like I'm getting new bearings :/ Planning on doing lots at once:

- kframe
- steering components
- control arms
- front bearings
- rear hub/bearings

I will not be doing all of this, just too much for me right now. No time (work 7 days a week), no space, no tools, very little knowledge :rofl: at least I have all the parts so I'll just have to pay for labour.

This is going to be a long and expensive month. Hopefully everything runs smoothly and I'm boosted by the end of it ;)

wrapped my fogs, this time they're the right ones :banghead:
Image

rims and parts getting prepped for powder

Image

Image

Image

First, the Candy teal is transparent apparently, so the rims need to be sprayed one solid colour then powdered. Second, I know someone already has teal silverstones! I chose this colour before I chose what rim I was buying.

Image

Image

Should be picking up all of this late tonight :D

Rt fogs are different. The first set I bought, I was told they would fit, he was wrong. You can get the tint anywhere, look on ebay. It's like $3 shipped
