Lots to do before Carlisle

Post by Ianguilly » Mon Apr 05, 2010 8:17 pm

So i've got a lot of time on my hand over my spring break, so i'd figure i'll finally put some mod on that i've put off for awhile. So first thing and biggest is my fog bumper i got this from the Jy months ago, but its just been to damn cold to do anything with it :( , so i've been sanding and puttying it for a couple of days. here's it so far:
(Starting Point)

Next is my intake i got this 3 weeks ago at the Jy and been cleaning it and getting it ready to go on:
Image

And hopefully this weekend me and my dad are going to Pick a part to maybe get a set of door panels as it stands now i've been out a passenger panel for 2 months. If i can't find any , then i'm just going to plastic weld mine back together.

And Finally its summer again, the snow and salt are gone so it time to put these back in:
Image

I know there ugly and pointless but it ties the interior together :lol:

Might get the rest of my seat (back) if they got them up at the JY

Love to hear comments good or bad
