Re: What "little things" have you done to your car to personalize it?

My wife has a Hello Kitty hanging from her mirror, a STI Hello Kitty sticker and a personalized plate(not Hello Kitty). All I have done was put my Tail of the Dragon license plate surround and my veterans plate on.

I ran the wires down to the light in the trunk. Super easy to do. The switch in the hatch even works both lights. The light I have in the hatch is awesome now. Only thing that sucked was drilling the trim panel so each led had a hole to shine through. Still very easy to do.

Who thinks i should powder coat my above Winter rims 100% White? If not white, what color do you think would look good for those rims. They were only 70 bucs a piece.

I think a dark grey like your car would be cool. Or theres always gold. My problem with white is there gonna look dirty fast!

I hate white rims. ;D

Dragon - let me know when you're down in the area. As close as I live to RP, I've only been there once for funny cars. I really want to get the bike and car down the track at least once though.

I live 7 miles form ATCO. I set my stance "right" and widened the track on the rear so the fender wells look more full. Its hardly noticable but I see it and I think it looks much better. I pulled the rear wheels out 10mm and it cleared. I tried 25mm and there was slight contact. Going to try for 15mm next.'

I still really want to do the hatch LEDs and put speakers in the hatch itself. :D

That translucent shift knob is awesome!! Is it too bright to drive with on at night?

Would you say the projector fogs make a big difference as far as increasing visibility?

Debadged the rear and used the letters to make a front license plate delete. Also used some 3M dinoc cf look to cover up the chrome on the grille till I get it my spare painted the way I like.


More 3M dinoc, also covered up the red reflectors down with the same tint as whats on the tails.


When it warms up I plan to have some fun with some LED's around the cabin.

Thank you! The knob isn't very bright, just for some reason in pictures it tends to look really bright. Also I wired it up so that is actually dims with all the other interior lights as well. So if I decide to dime everything, the knob goes dark too.

I would most definitely say that the projector fogs increase visibility. Every now and again I will drive around with only the fogs on and I can still see everything as long as it isn't higher than about 2 feet above the ground. I haven't driven through a complete whiteout yet, but the fog that I have gone through, I was extremely glad I had my fog lights.
