So yeah, everyone knows my dad backed into me and I had to have a new driver's door



Good news though, when I get Bella back, she will have an upgrade I've wanted forever-- aqua blue door and dash panels from the dealer Will post pics when I get her back Friday!

Eric, they just charged me paint time and materials because I did the prep-- I think it was around $125.

And thank you! I love how the interior looks. Now for my Le Mans stripes to tie the interior and under-hood to the exterior...

lol mine looks really similar except for the grill and the panels.
it says you have a 1LT but it looks like you have some leather interior and the hard plastic door panels. did you get them put in aftermarket?

Yes, I added a leather trimmed steering wheel (shifter ordered too) then removed the door panels, took the fabric off and had the dealer custom-paint them ABM
