Going to have to pretend for a bit because I made some modifications before I posted this thread haha so let's just pretend this is new :P

Installed my gill stripes today! For whatever reason, I didn't take pics from the side because I was in the garage... will try and get some today





EDIT: Added more photos

Car looks great. The gills really add some needed depth to the side of the car. Nice mods!

Woohoo! Just resized all the imagery first of all... way too big lol.

Second, I just finished my 4-day project to paint the dash trim CRT. Voilā! I think they turned out really really good Only just finished this now (8:00PM) so I don't have any outdoor pics yet. I'll be sure to get some tomorrow :P

Rip the fabric off, remove the glue, and sand the finish down


Primed and sanded smooth


Painted!


Clear coated!


Buffed to hell and back :P


Here's what it looks like in the dark and with an overexposed flash lol

Finally got my footwell lighting all wired up. Took forever because I had to make two runs to the electronics store because I kept forgetting bits >_<. Next time, we make a list! :P
