i bet you all forgot about this thread! well i got some modding done today. i am in such a good mood since i got all this! lol here it is.
new hatch actuator, the button still doesn't work, but i have a key for it now. but hey, it's better than crawling in the back!
SVT upper!!! got it for a steal!
fixed my third brake light(s)
also got a color-matched hatch trim for a steal. all the bolts are broken but i can live with it. i'm going to get double sided 3M tape soon and tint the emblem before it goes on.
here's the last pic of the stock hatch trim you'll see on this car.
all the parts.
