mishka going tomorrow to get the tips adjusted. they are crooked. and the plastic cut, its making noise. i want to do a trapezoid cutout like the st hope he does a good job. we had to weld it in a extra place (over the axle) and he put a flex pipe there. Is that safe/non-leaky? maybe thats why the tips are crooked. here are pictures of the install as well as pictures from my fist ever autocross

here are a couple videos some users posted of the track. i had my dashcam running but for some reason nothing will recorded... sad because they said this is the hardest/most complex track they had designed yet.

mishka Thanks Mike.
So... the job is done! Aesthetically, the job isn't perfectly how I would have liked it, but it's okay because I need to cut the plastic because it's touching and making a little bit of noise, and I think once that is done it will look better/more lined up perfectly and more factory looking.

I have to go at the moment - I will post pictures later today

mishka it was a rough winter...

still lovin the suspension though! (front drivers side)

but I finally get her cleaned up!

did an oil change!

my broadway mirror and dashcam which I've had for some time now

and a lucky charm! I like to throw into the car a different animal of some kind every year or two. I guess you could call it a superstition haha.

So does this make me eligable to the Sonic Club? [Tongue] haha

thanks alot Dusty I really like your blue led corner lights! I actually bought those too and tested them but never used them because it's illegal in VA/MD as far as I could tell, but the "cool white" is still blueish and is almost as cool haha . As far as the tail lights go - no problems because the stock bulbs are pretty bright and Lamin-x says that the gunsmoke tint only has a 12% light output reduction. It looks pretty dark but the lamps reflect just fine too. A lot of people go way darker and say they haven't had issues.

Is yours a Sedan or Hatch?

There is still some things to do to Shadowfax down the road.
Here is my current future mod list:
paint brake calipers [ black or blue high heat]
blue highbeam bulbs
tint headlights
LED dome light replace [yellow/blue]
LED trunk light replace [white/blue]
LED fogs, turn signals
exhaust, headers

I just plastidipped my wheels using black and blaze blue for the lugs (sry for picture quality)

completely frozen over...

mishka thanks Spitfire i like it too :) I think yours would look good blacked out too especially those wheels :)

I had a bit of the tint laying around so finally did the 3rd brake light

and some over the radio screen because it's still too bright for my liking even with the dim lowered.
