Still going through cosmetics, got stuck on a couple of major PITA projects.

Easy project: put on a fairly stock looking offset plate. 4 huge positives here:
1. The 9-2X bumper is thick enough there's zero light or body-line occlusion.
2. Obviously all set for the Gimmick FMIC upgrade.
3. This is the first front plate the car ever had, so the front bumper is perfect with no plate-delete badging.
4. I registered first for a truck plate, then went back a week later for personalized, so when the 'SABEERU' plate arrives, I can still get commercial tags

PITA project number 1: Prodrive Mudflap wagon install is done. I'll post a How-To on these as well, I seriously want to save anyone the headaches I had. So sick on a black wagon:

PITA project number 2: Turn signal rear-view mirrors. I was stoked to see these were a $40 mod, but what a cheap frustrating piece of s**t. I've got 5 hours in the mod so far and it will be finished, but it took me 3 hours of convincing myself I was an electrical retard before I realized some idiot at the factory had miswired the driver's side mirror so it would never work right. Tore the mofo down, and despite being a soldering moron, I changed the polarity on the motor. I seriously did a happy dance in my garage after this one:
