The day I brought my new baby home. February 2009, my 26th birthday present to myself. Seen here next to Edna, who was sold the next day.
Sent off front bumper and grill to TJ to get painted. Debadged at the same time.
Stock headlights are gone. Replaced lights with PIAA Xtreme whites, blinkers and parking lights were replaced with chrome bulbs that light up amber.
Next mod, Grillcraft upper and lower grills. Rear window was tinted at 5% around this time.
K&N 63 series added next.
Photoshopped drop by MJBtaco.
Stock stereo and speakers are gone. Replaced with an old POS Pioneer headunit, old POS Pioneer amp, old POS PPI 10' sub, and brand spanking new Infinity Kappa 60.3 door speaker/tweeters held on by TacoTunes wiring adapters and Mr. Marv baffles.
Got an idea from dear old pops about putting panty hose over holes
Picked up a K&N Drycharger, highly recommended for the dusty climates
K&N part number is RD-1024DK.
Rattle canned my rear bumper, it's flat, no gloss. I also took my tail lights out and "fogged" them with the same paint as the bumper. Don't do this, I wasn't of sound mind when I did.
FlowMaster HushPower II 18'' muffler installed, stock piping, added a swap meet tip.
I recently performed the inverted rear view mirror mod, that gets an A+.
