couple quick pics from the oldies driveway, i had recently removed the black vinyl from the bonnet, got bored i supposed.. still leaving the rest of it though!.. when i get some money together i want to upgrade the system, its not bad for a 9 speaker setup, altho its not enough for me...

Also putting some drls put in @ the front vertical grilles when i got time, and some puddlelights for underneath.

Some new pics taken last week, recently added puddle lights to the box and also some white led strips 1 shining down on the honeycomb grill and the other shining up from the bottom, they all come on with the puddle lights, also got it on a separate switch.. i have bought these aftermarket brake/stop lights where the reflectors used to be, it looks oem and sexy as fk, still need to put some black film over them to match the back.. also plasti-dipped the exterior badges orange, and just some other minor stuff, new pearl orange shift knob.. , i have ordered some orange tint film also, going to do the front headlights and see how that pans out, also going to try some pin striping.. more mods to come, maybe another set of shoes too.
