Thanks! yeah, I found out about them searching through threads and decided to try them out. Definitely a good pick up because of their great quality.

The car looks good so far, but take better pictures and post them up on here so I can actually see what your ride looks like with all those mods. One thing I do have to say is I don't really like your HVAC gauge cover thing, it doesn't fit well with the interior and doesn't match anything from the interior from what I can tell. Other than that, your mods seem pretty good man. :yesway:

Thanks guys for the input! I re-uploaded the pictures with image shack so they should be bigger now (hopefully not too big). If I get a chance I'll get a few pictures down on the river this weekend and get them on here. Corey16, I get what your saying with my HVAC lights. I originally just bought the knob covers but they sent me all of it so i didn't want to see it go to waste. I may take it off later on down the road.

I believe Akita Racing? I'm guessing they are cheap. I got a good price with them and tires, $800 bucks at discount tire. I needed new wheels anyway because my stockers were bent and cracked so bad they weren't holding air anymore.

Looks good. I like it for the most part...(never liked those gauge overlays and reverse glow hvac covers and never will)

Keep it clean :yesway:

Are you currently working on any mods right now? The car is clean, and I like seeing new members who actually have good taste in modding out their ride. Also I like seeing how you have a theme going on with the color of your car. I personally don't mind your speedometer gauge overlay, it actually looks pretty decent. It kind of reminds me of those Angel gauges. I personally have a indiglo speedometer gauge overlay and love it.

The gauges aren't bad if you like them. I just think you need to do the rest of the led's in blue. I like the wheels, they look good, I'm just not a fan of black on black. Keep it clean man, good job.

Thanks all for the kind words! When I got on this site I researched a lot and realized keeping it clean is the best look.

Glad to see some people are old school and still rock CD's like myself. :yesway:. I never got into MP3 players.
Cd's ftw!! I still burn cd's to this day. I'm not a big fan of MP3 players either. And Corey16, I am not completing any mods at the moment. I am currently in college and it is temporarily my "down time." Starting up around christmas I will most likely have my brake setup done. Then from there maintenance; after its all about buying the parts for my custom supercharger build.

Good point. Get those splash guards installed. Asap.
Wow! thanks a lot for reminding me of that. The bad thing is, they have been off for a while now. The previous owner had wrecked it and it is actually tore completely off so I'll need a replacement. That'll be next on my list.
