First on my list? LOL a few things as I have had almost a year to think about it HA. I just got the tracking info for my SRT intake so it should be there a few days before I return. I also bought alpine type r 6.5's for the front and type r 6x9's for the rear, a 6 channel monster rca cable and a JL HD 5ch 900w amp and I will be using a single pioneer premier 12 for the time being. I also bought some IMO nice looking carbon fiber tail lights. The stereo will be the only thing I plan on having someone else do for me as I just want it done like the day I get back so I have some nice sound asap!

Nice, have you thought about sound deadening? This will definitely bring out the sound system to the max.

For sure bro. I am actually going to help a buddy of mine do his as well. It would be sometime late winter, early spring. We can all meet up and paint some headlights. lol

What look do you want?

Gloss, matte, or satin black?

Chrome rings?

Tinted turn signals or leave em alone?

Ok so I made it back on the 12th and this weekend I got my stereo installed and I love it!!! I also got the srt pipe installed with no problem. I did however discover rusted rotors....so I picked up some new ones along with new pads. Also got the oil changed...royal purple this weekend....my bank account hates me, but my car loves me! Oh yeah how could I forget...taillights look good too
