I just got a new Canon S100 Digital camera, so I stepped outside and took a few pictures:



Note the CCM speakerphone/charger for my Nokia phone, and the "normally closed" replacement traction control on/off switch.



The new heated mirror switch...



I like bare black pedals better than aluminum cover plates.



Gee - what is that in there? Do you have one???

TEG - the heated mirror switch.. that looks just like the fog light switch on my past '98 Camry. The fog lights on that Camry was port installed, and insted of a switch on the light switch stalk, it had a separate switch on the lower left part of the dash.

Also on the mirror switch picture -- have you tried macro mode? Looks a bit fuzzy -- which is quite unlike that camera...

I love the sound of the stereo.

My 100watt Sub is not overpowering like yours...

TEG, very creative of you! That's good stuff. What about replacing the pedals with real_drilled_aluminum pedals?

TEG- does your subwoofer make anything in your car rattle after awhile? I know in all the other cars i've owned i put in like 2 12' subs and after awhile the car would sqeak everytime the bass hit. I don't want my IS to be like that

[From TEG: NO! I hate it when there is buzzing or rattling. I mounted everything with foam tape between the woofer, the mounting board, etc, etc. No rattles even at full volume!]

TEG,

You are quite the handy-man. Quick question. Aren't your bald pedals more slippery when they are wet? Isn't that somewhat unsafe?

[From TEG: I suppose, but I have found that rubber soled shoes stick to pedals just fine. No problems that I have noticed. ]

Teg, you gotta tell me how you made that fan and whether it works. I also posted in the interior/exterior mods section.

What i'm worried about is at high speeds, the fan will restrict airflow into the filter.

It looks like you took a computer cooling fan, rounded the edges and stuck in a RC car motor. That's what I'd do if I tried it.

Mind telling us? I'd really like to know...
Does it sound better?
