Brought the car home from storage last night, had plans to work on it all weekend. My wife went out of town for the weekend, and I bought the kiddo's a new video game and some movies to keep them entertained. About an hour and a half in I came in to make the boys lunch, my youngest was complaining about his brother not playing with him. I told him to go and get him, he took off like a bat out of hell tripped over his pants and fell flat on his face.
So 3 hours in the emergency room and 11 stitches in his chin later we came home.
Needless to say the car got put on the back burner, I got him settled down and got a good deal of work done anyways.
The interior is done. Spoiler is on, need to wire up the break light, 5000k DRL's and Ofer's harness in, rockers installed, front splash guards on rears tomorrow, Apex scoop and bottle in. I decided to paint the strut tower brace and K&N box, will put those on tomorrow. All that is left then is to install the front splitter, and gill inserts. Will post finished (for now) pictures tomorrow!

K&N Back in, and strut tower brace installed. Going to take a break for a few hours I'm beat from yesterday!
Here is an engine bay pic and better ones of the interior, with the speedometer bezel back in.

Well I decided to plasti dip my tail light bezels and side letters. I either didn't spray it on thick enough, or didn't let it dry long enough. It ripped and peeled everywhere. I didn't cover enough of the car with paper when I sprayed the bezels and ended up with over spray all over the rear panels! So much for being lazy and trying to save some time, ended up spending 2 hours claying and buffing the rear of the car. Then taking the bezels off and painting them.
I got it all off the rear, but couldn't get all of it out of the letters. I pulled them off and just ordered a new set. Looking at the car now, I need to get rid of the rims. I thought the polished ones would look good on the car, but they stand out like a sore thumb now that there is no chrome left!
Time to do some shopping, any opinions on a nice set of black wheels?

Pulled the trigger on some new shoes, should be here next week will post pics then.
20x8.5 265/45/20 and 20x10 295/40/20
And if what I am reading is true, they will be about 3-4 lbs lighter at each corner!

Took the car back to storage today. Weather report says sub-freezing temperatures for at least 10 more days. My wife wants her heated garage back until then.
Oh well at least it gives me more time to make the wheel and tire decision, I have it narrowed down to 4 sets of wheels and 3 sets of tires. I'll be sure to post pictures whenever I decide.
On a negative note, I noticed a long scratch on my passenger side interior door panel that I could not see in the garage. So I will be working on fixing that as soon as I get it home.

Ordered another set of wheels last night, we'll see if these ones get shipped. 8.5" fronts and 10" rears with Cooper Zeon RS3-S 245/45/20 and 275/40/20's. I'll get pictures up as soon as I get them. I'll have to weigh them when they come in but if the list weight is right I'll save 14lbs up front and 20lbs in the rear between wheels and tires.
