And the next thing to be excited about;

I was quoted for PAINT yesterday... as low as 229 and a step up for 349 which will be just paint and the guy said he would guarantee it for 2 years but with proper washing and waxing easily 4 years. I've seen there work and it's not bad at all, has a definite high gloss with it!

The rears are in. The stock speakers are 10 bucks for all 4. The rears may or may not worked, harness was fubared.


I would have gotten the door speakers in but didn't feel like doing it tonight.

Exactly what I was thinking.

The guy is a friend of a friend, and he said with regular washing and waxing, it's going to last longer.

If you haven't noticed, I got the cage and face in for the cd player, woot. All four speakers are upgraded, and sound great. Honestly, the fronts did not fit as well as I had hoped, but they are in there with some quick-fabbed brackets...

I'm still porting out an intake, needs to be jb welded where I had overported.

I see you spared no expenses on the head unit and speakers, lol.

Interior cleaned up pretty nice though, always feels good to freshen the inside up a little bit.

Yeah...

I really am debating on what to do with the head liner.

I think I am going to do the "Krylon Fusion" on all of the interior, and do a custom fabric on my headliner and door panels.

I just need some dark seats, that's all.

I would say paint the interior flat black if anything.

Well, didn't get the Odometer swap done, but whatever. Reflowed the connection on the cluster, and low and behold, reconnected the speedometer cable and everything works! This is great news to me.

Anyway, the next thing on the list is paint, which might be as early as this week. I am also working towards seeing what the hell I should do for the headliner... I want to do something different like put something there to imprint upon... but I don't know what. We'll see.

Also, for a STS, go with maddog or Fidanza?
