Just some updates...
It was raining and I had the blues. So I decided to remove more of my interior. Going LEDs
The 2nd pic has a plug circled. That was a muttaphuking Pain In The @$$!!! I swore it was going to break. Glad it didn't, and this will be my only and last time pulling the HVAC unit out(knock on wood)

Today, I decided that I wanted to mess with my taillights. I didn't like the look, so here is my outcome

4/2014 Taillight mod

Brakes on

Ride looks real good in the pics at the top Deek, obviously is still in very good condition and well taken care of.

I know what you mean by those connectors, especially that one you pointed out is a PITA. But I definitely like the look of the rear now with the addition of those lamps on. Nice work, keep it up!

Diodedynamic and Vleds. I liked the white from Diode, but they didnt have the T3/T4 bulbs. I had to order the other bulbs from VLEDs

Pics to come soon

Reminds me of my gsr, I had the dark green one with the 5 star blades. That thing was so clean, i used to wipe down the engine bay every other day. You should get the parts for the rear window wiper delete.... makes it real clean looking in the back.

nice. I want the fat five wheels as well. I used to have it on my 93 DA. I miss that car
I seen them without rear wiper and its clean. Just not sure if I want to go that route yet. Due to rain in this state. Will the rear defrost clear up the rain drops on the back window?
I do want to delete the rear spoiler as well. I used to like them, but after seeing them without, I like it even better

Did some more work on the DC. Still lot more to do

This was the OEM colored bulbs


Cool White LEDs


OEM


Bllue LEDs It does suck that the blue light doesn't penetrate through the red heat marking or amber defrost symbols


Another shot at dusk


And now for the new steering wheel and QR

Nice job on the cluster and console, it made a huge difference and turned out great!
I like the new steering wheel, blends with the dash nicely and looks good. Nice update man

Yeah, me too. I was going to go with the colored quick release, but opted to go this route instead

prob not so well, but I just kept mine lubed up with rain-x and I never had an issue. never used the rear wiper anyway.
