Thanks!

Here are some beauty shots from last week! First spot was just the back of a neighborhood that has some benches and pavilions on the river... second was one of the parks on the beach here, my car was definitely not supposed to be up on the sidewalk compass design, hence the blurry action shot, lol. Third spot was a boat ramp just off the bridge over to the barrier islands. Fourth spot was a park on the river, aptly named Riverside Park. These were taken by my sister, to give her the proper credit and as of now are totally unedited.

Needs moar lows. My personal favorite is the second to last image.

NEWS! Actually, not really, been in my signature for a while I just neglected to update my build thread.

But, the FSWerks Stealth exhaust is installed, has been since the end of September, lol, didn't get a lot of pictures but here's what I do have!

Okay, so instead of pics of shocks/struts/spring install... I have a bunch of pictures of swapping out my headlights for the black bezel ST2/Titanium headlights, and the process of swapping the interior pale gold trim of the SEL over to the black and silver from the ST2. Because the ST2 center console is the lower trim design, the piece around the shifter does not fit (it's on order, will update this post when it arrives) I currently don't have it, or my glovebox installed. Aside from that, the black and silver is soooo much better than the gold! I was able to repurpose the ST2 shift boot as well, I lose the PRNDS display next to the shifter, but since I've got it in the gauge cluster display, it makes no difference to me.

Lights BEFORE



and AFTER





Interior pieces and install process

I really like the sedans. Digging the twin tip on the exhaust.

Thanks you guys! Updated a post above with pictures from my light swap from chrome to black, and swapping my interior trim from the stock SEL pale gold to the ST2 black and silver. Forgive the peeling plasti-dip, I had it colored to see if I wanted the black look or a darker anthracite look.

Finally got the last trim piece in! Love the new look. Need to fiddle with fitment in a few places and have the shift boot re stitched. Cutting it to fit caused the seams to start splitting.

Sweet ride! I don't know how you can handle no tint in FL, I have mine 15% front and back. I really like the looks of those black headlights, I want to put those in my SE, but at the same time I wonder how hard it would be to take apart the housing and just spray paint them black? Who knows.
