Put in footwell lighting yesterday. I like how it came out.

I also put in the flex tube from SJMAutoprod on the drivers side. glad I did. When I pulled apart the front insert, the previous stock type tyco tube was literally shattered. Strange.

Then I went to put in the new SJM tube in the passenger side. When taking out the old pipe (which I was planning on putting back in in case I didn't like the new pipe), somehow or another THAT cracked....damnit...two for two....what else could go wrong...

Dumb question.

I was putting the light back on at teh right side when I accidentally touched the two wires. That light shorted out. So now I have to order a new one. I might as well go ahead and order two...just in case.

Solution? Just buy some new rims. And if Glen EVER gets them......... then I'll be picking up the 1st set he has. Next step, drop them off at a friends place to get them painted.

Anyone have any thoughts on FLAT CGM?

I don't know... I'd just like for them to be a bit different. Black looks cool. But, I don't have much black on the car and don't want to go there adding another color. I just want the car to look "matched." And I sure as hell don't know what I'm going to do about wheel color...

But, hopefully in the next couple weeks we'll have a set in.

At least some part of my car will have reached ludicrous speed!

Awesome. Let me know how much and when. I'd be happy to take them off of your hands until Glen is able to get me my wheels.

If you want them all, make me an offer, one that will leave you room to sell them when your wheels arrive...I need to get rid of them when the new ones show up....

Did you put the led strip ambient lights & hook them with tie strips. Just curious,just posted the new mods on mine & that was 1of my mods. Hooked my to dome light from drivers side. plus some others. But I made a metel strip 15 in. long then drilled 2 holes in it connected to bottom of dash & used double sided tape and no ties. Your machine was why I stared doing mods.

Well, thank you very much!

Nope...no ties.

I put in two 15" LED flex strips on either end under the dash and TO the dash. The only thing holding them in place is the adhesive 3M backing. I wired them in to a manual switch on the side of the center console. That way, I can turn them on and off on command. I was thinking of adding a switch to the overhead dome so they come on and go off as the door opens and shuts....then have override with the side button..........................in fact, I think I'm going to do that.

Now...to figure out how to get it done!

Footwell lighting looks great!!!

Does it dim in and out with the dome light when you open/close the doors?

EDIT: Dope!!! Of course you answered my question right before I posted... I want to say there'd a dome fuse/wire that you can tap into for power...but don't quote me.

Thanks...and no. Not yet. In fact, we were just discussing that. I want to get it all hooked up so that it'll come on and off when I open the doors. i'll have to figure out who to talk to about that so I can find which wires to tap into and how.

I know man! I just checked it out! Those winter mats are pretty damn cool. Don't really need them down here in Texas, but for those rainy and nasty days, they would come in handy. that shifter is bad @SS. Looks just like the concept shifter. And yes...I REALLY want new pedals. Now that I have the lighting down there, I have to make that area a little more appealing. Those pedals are pretty slick!

Dropped off the car on Tuesday to my SA dealer. Got it back Friday.

Had both rear axles replaced under factory powertrain warranty. Both were leaking grease at the CV boots.

Oil change as well. Documentation.

Car goes back this week for the drivers side seat heater to be fixed.

Still need to replace the passenger side dash abl light. Blew out a couple weeks ago when putting in the light pipes (crossed the wires). Won't take but 15 minutes. Still....that one light from behind the center dash REALLY lights up that whole light tube near perfectly. Kinda surprised....good light pipes from SJMAutoProd.

I don't know which little shit did this to my car, but if I find out, .....

It either happened at one of two friends houses yesterday (wasn't around the car all day as we were down at the mile) when it was parked outside,

or...

it happened today while I had it parked along the curb out in front of my house. Wish I knew.....

ugh... time to go see the dent guy...
