So - followed the lead of loads of others on here and Flocked my A Pillar Pod.

Once flocked sprayed it with some Black Fabric spray to make it darker to match the interior a little better (It was much lighter originally)

Very happy with the result - way better than the black plastic look.

Also flocked my passenger side A Pillar

So I got home from work today and decided I was sick of the Gold Bowtie on my steering wheel - changing it out for a different one or taking it off to paint is not an easy option as it's connected to the airbag, so I decided to go DIY and see how I got on.

I think I need help haha..

Thanks! I'm not normally an artistic person so it was more of a challenge for me than it should have been haha - but now it's on there I'm really happy with it - MUCH better than the gold!!

I had my front and rear bowtie painted by Lupe (Overhaulengines on here) - the quality is fantastic.

I'm sure you'll end up at the engine work soon enough regardless..I know I'm rapidly getting to that point!

And yeah, it took me a while, but I had nothing else to do that afternoon haha!!

So, added a few more items over the last couple of weeks.

First I added some Stealth Bulbs to get rid of the orange at the front when the turn signals are not on...just cleans it up a little I think and every little helps!

They still flash orange, just can't see them as orange until they are on:






Then I added the Billet Hood Strut from Billet Customs in White:



And finally I added the Technostalgia LED Sequential Rear Lights:





Short Video of Sequential Turn Signals:

So, changed my plan around a bit - love the look of the new Pfadt Tri-Y headers so I'm going with those instead (won't have to cut the Belly Pan as a bonus)..also decided to change the OD Pulley too and upgrade to ID850's...so in a couple of weeks I'll have the following:

Pfadt Tri-Y Stainless Steel Headers
Rotofab CAI
Metco Motorsports 2.50" Supercharger Pulley
Heavy Duty Solid Isolator Coupling
Gates 65.3" Supercharger Belt - Green Stripe HD
SLP 160 Degree Thermostat
FSP ATI ZL1 Super Damper Kit
- Includes Serpentine 8_Rib Belt
- Includes 10% OD Balancer Pulley
ID850 Injectors
Custom Dyno Tune

Can't wait!

Thanks both!

Can't wait to get the power adders put on to go with all the cosmetic stuff I've added

Then I'll have to figure out what's next to Mod!
