My build for FF2013!
I have a few major things to take care of in preparation for FocusFest 2013! Thankfully, it's still a long way out, so I should have enough time to get my car ready! Sadly, I will not be re-painting my car - I am going to just paint the bumper. I need to put some money aside to make it to the event! So for now, my car will be a "10 foot" car [hihi]

Installed my new shift knob!

Very easy install. I just unscrewed the old shifter and put this one on. I did have to drill a hole on both sides to screw it in. I also Di-Noc wrapped the shifter surround and that sleeve thing(whatever that is)

katiekay 12-04-2012 01:59 PM

I Di-Noc wrapped the radio bezel today and installed Andrei's blue conversion! Only thing I got left to install for the led conversion is the gauge cluster. I am going to do that tomorrow!


Wanted to see a before and after shot together, wow what a difference!

Thanks again Starfuryt550!!! They are awesome, and really easy to switch over!

Thanks! I love the phone holder, best position to mount your phone by far! Plus it looks OEM

Not much of an update, I have slowed down on it till after the snow melts, still big things to come[headbang]

I did install strut tower cap plugs today, for me they required a lil modding because of my suspension setup, but for all others, they should be a direct swap!


After I had to drill a hole, then dremeled it to give it a nice finished look.

It's all about the little details [8D]
