How complicated is it to solder in the new ones? Is it reliable or am I going to have to change them every few months?

Shortening the shifter gives a total different feel/look.

Interior LED's can be relatively cheap.

I still think im the only one who removed the door guards (about 6 years ago) Looks great...

For the price, the rear window spoiler sets it off.

And although most dont believe/listen, a grounding kit really does make a nice difference on our cars. I have under $20 in mine. The MPG and throttle response is immediate.


I have heard owners of other cars doing this. Is there a specific kit out there? Thanks, Doug.

Damn, looks great! Did you leave the interior trim pieces in the car when you painted them or did you take them out?

I don't think you would be able to paint them in the car without making a huge mess...I took them out.
