    I drove it how it was for about two years, then decided to start modding it.


    put in a JVC KD-PDR80 head unit ( free ).
    Then ORION Cobalt 15" sub.



    - painted my dash kit around my head unit, and shifter console.

    The chrome grille kind of looked weird now with black headlights, so I decided to plastidip it.

    Didn't have my tires and rims yet, and my stock rims wouldn't fit because the offset, and it hit my new spindle. so I had to borrow and chevy rim from my buddy and my spare tire flipped backwards. I just put them on so I could put the rear lift on.

    Got around to doing the satoshi grill mod. Took two days, just had to drive it one day with bondo all over it. Definitely recommend having another grill to do the work on.

    Used the Fiberglass repair kit from autozone

    - Perforated aluminum SS from CUSTOMCARGRILLS
    I cut the heads off of screws, and used plastic epoxy to hold them against the plastic. I had to drill tiny holes for the screws to fit through, then just put the washer and nut on it.

    - For the triangle cut outs, I just screwed it into the back of the plastic to keep it flush

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    - cut out the front bumper plastic and did the same thing to the bottom

    - Sanded the grill with 80 grit, 150, then 220. Sprayed adhesion promoter, Black sandable primer, the Duplicolor color match flat black.

    They're awesome. Although I had to do some playing around with the wiring. The LED strip doesnt run all the way to the top, So i tied them into my parking light wire, to bring them to the top of the light.

    Thanks lol! I spent $1,040 for the complete set up. I didn't buy it all as one though. I bought a few parts at a time and got a few deals.
