Added an image of LED dome light compared to the stock and M1 shift knob I brought over from my Si. I've probably had the knob for over 7 years and it's my absolute favorite.

Updated with pictures of tint. Overlays coming next as well as splash guards and smoked side markers. This is turning out to be not so slow.

Put in LED Reverse Lights. Pictures are from daytime but even then, you can see how big of a difference they make. I'll try to update with night shots later.

Timelapse of Smoked Overlays:

Before and after photos of the taillights. Blacked out the clear sections tail lights and added a smoke overlay to the reverse/turn signal area.

Also added yellow overlays to the fogs.

Been crazy busy but installed the OEM Mud Guards last month. I was originally thinking about getting the wider aftermarket ones, I forget the name, but I really just like the OEM look of these cars. I feel these fit the car perfectly. And since they’re matte, it’s easy to clean and doesn’t scratch easily.. granted I haven’t gone off-roading with it to test lol.

Haha, I agree.

I want to get a really nice coil over set. On my FG2, I ran Skunk2 lowering springs only for 10 years. I’ve been thinking about the Eibach Pro Kit as the drop isn't crazy however I wish the came in red. Their red springs, I think will be too much for me.

I always wanted the Buddyclub coils on the 8th.. so we’ll see. I’m actually not in a rush to lower it though.
