Free. I didn't get a ticket so it must be electric now lol. I know how to park, I did that on purpose because I have had a few too many door dings parking there. Apparently people don't know how to open a door and not hit the car next to them. It was very mean, but I'm all good now after crying it out haha.

Moving on, those led reflectors are pretty cool

Thanks for taking that one like a good sport

Though being that close to the wheelchair ramp, don't be surprised if you find marks on the passenger side from a pissed off disabled person!

I would like to see what you have underneath the hood. Must have a crazy setup to support that wing.

I'm sure the downforce that wing generates supports his track times plenty

Not sure if this is the definition of a "modification" but...
Started possibly tacking some precious years onto the car by removing rust + rustproofing. Much more to be done

First I removed all rust down to clean metal. Coated everything in a thin coat of rustoleum rust reformer. Then two nice thick coats of rustoleum rubberized undercoating

The wing is probably a lot more useful than the diffuser.

Definitely like this a lot. I would imagine you had to have the face made? Or we're you able to do it yourself?

Just so you know those products are terrible, i would be shocked if that lasts a year. I hope they work better for you than they ever have for me. I wouldnt bother doing what you are doing unless i used rust buller ot por15.

basically i scanned the gauges, made a template in photoshop then printed one on transparent adhesive vinyl. Yeah, i know its not for everyone, but like i said, i have always been a fan of the colored tachs on the newer Ferraris. It adds a little flair to one of the things you always stare at in our cars.

How does it look at night (picture?)

Was it hard to remove needle and gauge face?

It's a bit dark, i just need to order a brighter LED to stick behind it to brighten it up a little, but its not bad. as far as removing the needles, DON'T!!!! you will break your cluster, and be out $$$$$$$. you simply need to remove the peg where the needles rest and slide the overlay through the needle.

Any night pics with them lit up? Did you ever think about going with EL glow?

Check these guys out: http://www.caribbeancustomdesigns.co...64d8f403e8ae77

I bet it would look sick with all the faces done the same and EL glow on the back.

Not my style... but NICE WORK!!!

Me and a friend had a stock exhaust lying around and decided to cut it open for fun to see if we could get more sound out of it.
pictures and descriptions here: http://imgur.com/a/BM4j3
The internal design of the muffler was quite restrictive to say the least.

Ended up sounding like this

Sticker bombed this today. Not bad for my 1st time. Probably going to redo it sometime in the future.
