Thanks, Dave. I'm hoping to have a few more things finished up within the next week or so. Do you have any tricks up your sleeve?

Thanks, Sevn86. You have no idea how badly I want to paint it... I just need to think of what to do with it. Something that looks nice, but unique.... like my buddies Pete & Dave.

Got my sidemarkers today... Everything you read is true... they must be seen in person to be fully appreciated; no picture can do them justice.



BONUS:
The guys at AACStyle have an excellent sense of humor.

If you're not looking to shake the doors off your car, 1/2 gain and BASS between -6 & -9 on the head unit is great... just enough bass to fill what was missing and you can crank it without worrying about blowing your stock speakers... when my wife isn't around I put the bass on 0 and crank the volume... THEN it's LOUD and the rear view mirror is unusable.

Yesterday I had Eibach sway bars installed...


I didn't plan on getting them this soon, but a fellow club member purchased sway bars for a 2010-2011 instead of 2012+ so he offered them to me instead of having to pay to ship them back..... the downside of purchasing & installing parts without your wife's knowledge:

(at least this "doghouse" has heated leather seats.... and new sway bars.)
