new mods that are pictured above: OEM RS headlights, non-RS to RS harness, parking light tint, HJC racing helmet, Hurst short throw shifter, sidewinder knob, SJM line lock and BMR trailing arms

can't wait to get everything installed tomorrow

also waiting on the heritage grill to come in then get it painted... then I'll install the RS headlights and new grill at the same time

Welcome to the 1SS club... it's a very exclusive one

Now I'm going to have to check you're car out sometime... you have a lot of the things I'm interested in grabbing and a couple that have now gotten my interest My wallet hates me.

Do you goto the Pearland Car Show/Meet every Friday?

Yup proud 1SS owner and still so glad I didn't get the leather and also enjoy the space where the 4-gauge pack would be..great spot for my wallet and other things

Yes majority of the time I go every Friday. This week though I won't be going because I'm leaving Thursday night to College Station to visit my girlfriend for the weekend.

I will be at the Pearland Street Meet Oct. 21

Yeah you can't daily drive leather unless you have auto start and ventinlated seats. I'm busy for the next few weekends as well. Next time I head out there I'll look for you.

I want this wheel for my car so bad except satin black face with a gloss black lip would look so sexy but they're very pricey especially in trakfunction. The most affordable ones I could get are the mono block, but I would prefer trak spec or standard 3-piece forged maybe after I graduate college I can get a set.

Clean looking rims bro; those would look sick with the finish you want!

Nice choice. When you're ready get with Nine Ball...he's an ADV.1 dealer.

Can't go wrong with ADV. The Track Specs, as you've said, are quite expensive but, take a look as the TRAKfunctions as they are a bit more affordable.

thanks Ty! Matt did a great job on painting the heritage grill and I really like the way it looks. We weren't able to get the RS headlights in that night due to some confusion on the harness I have but we're gonna try it again on Thursday this week. Oh yeah we also put the ADM air scoop in.

I'm hoping to get pics up of everything installed this upcoming weekend

Awesome. It'll be like a whole new car with the grill and headlights.

You'll probably see my car while your up there.
