Thanks to Steve - nguyenSTX for his help
although i always try doing things on my car on my own
he was the reason i decided to take on this project
Image
My homemade Renova grille...its now Flat Black! with gloss black mesh
Image
notice lip kit was sanded in this pic...had few nicks which needed to be smooth before the new color
Image

toughest part...mirrors
Image
Image
Image
Image

Here are some pics of my W7 box i had to remake...needed more trunk space
it actually sounds better now too 24x11" back behind seats...24x14" front speaker mount
Image
Image
finished box...except i installed speaker grille after
Image

cut out security tab near ash tray for new light switch...this turns on and off Headlight HID
some cops dont like bright blue lights (highbeams look oem since i also have h3 bulb installed)
Image
oh no...i passed the 130 mark
Image
i havent finished this new project yet since i cant do it all at once or my wife will kill me lol
Roof Doors and fenders are next...
Tints
New Rims and possibly will purchase some coilovers...Stay Tuned!

here is my new shift knob i made
drilled 1/2" hole then tapped some threads
a lot better than my GReddy knob i had which was metal. It would get
freezing cold during winter and burning hot in the summer. Got the idea from Shelby GT500
