Ghosted sidemarkers are on the front now too. Was going to start the headlights, but need dinner instead. Guess ill start those after work tomorrow and look at how I want to wire them tonight.
Stud. Doing that leaving the wheels on. At least the bolts aren't too tight. I found reattaching, while easy, was harder b/c I had to pull the fascia toward me with one hand while tightening with another. A third hand would be ideal.

Woud it be possible to plastidip the chrome taillight bezels and still have them fit properly? Would that look weird?

The little nipple. I bought an assortment pack and used the a size down from what shipped from JDP. They put in a clamp for a full hose - think of the width of the hose. That covering for the nipple is much thinner.

I'll have to compare my exhaust tomorrow.

So, I was just thinking to myself .... now that you've done most of the mods you set out to do ... do you keep hanging around here getting influenced by what others continue to do? ..... HE[[s Ya!

You're done already?? Dang...this headlight and fog mod is probably going to be the toughest one I'm gonna do in the foreseeable future. Then it's a couple vinyls, my cai, and I'm pretty much done for a while. Speaking of CAIs, there's not really a way to install one with our separators installed, is there? Anybody have an idea?

Very nice. Hard to tell exactly what you did from my phone, but looks like it was pretty simple. My cai isn't going in til I get a stock dyno run. Maybe this weekend

No worries. Thanks, I think I'm going to go the same route.

Clutch reservoir

Got mine done today Just as CrystalRedTintcoat the clamp that comes with the package is too big,glad he let us know so i was able to pick up that hose clamp before i started.I let Jordan know and he will be addressing the issue. I also painted my lug nuts,and of course those aren't original rims,they are in the back bedroom all safe and warm for my track day at Laguna those rims i got from a C5 member from Vegas,and had them powder coated.I painted the center cap,but am not happy,so will be redoing it.

i just used a wire tie on the nipple. Remember to change that clutch fluid OFTEN... that is really the point. Looks good.

Just got my car back this afternoon. Good thing because i was going through withdrawal. Seems the shifter pin was not seated correctly at the factory, so a new one was put in. So mine was a fluke, and not something you guys should concern yourselves with. I couldn't believe all the mods you guys have done recently, and it seems I need to get on the ball. Need to order catch can and clutch reservoir , but was hoping the catch can ordering glitch has been fixed. Don't want order a crystal red and get Ozzys long lost yellow.
