Some slow progress and my build thread!
 
So when I first posted in the showroom, I was new to the site. I posted my car with confidence but was flamed..it ended up being a good thing that taught me a thing or two and helped me into the right direction.

This thread will help document my changes and progress.

How I started out:

After realizing a cleaner look is what I really would like, I night shaded my tails, bought sportlines and new eibach dampers, upper and lower euro grilles. Painted the door handles and peeled all the chrome off!

I also picked up a brand new injen which I love. A Degas cover, painted the vallve cover and painted the battery cover and fuse cover back black. Much cleaner.

I got tired of the rims quickly, and moved onto a pair that i always liked and finally got my hands on some EAPs! I also tinted the foglights with a slight blue hue.

Update* 7/17/12
Recently added a steeda rear sway bar. Car never came with one but had he brackets for one. Definitely feels better while cornering, poly bushings and end links too..

7/28/12 installed my new svt mirrors! Compliments of rock auto, and perfect match paint from a local body shop and clear coat with some buff and polish...

My future mod list consists of:
Svt mirrors (done!)
Summer tires for the EAPs
Bigger sway bars/ rear bar ( just need a front one now, prefer an svt or race craft, with poly bushings)
A magnaflow true catback (with flex pipe)
Possibly a set of dark st170 housing headlights
Svt hvac controls
Adj Toe arms
Possibly dominant enj. Rear control arms
Svt seats

Nice transformation

Looking much better IMO.

What gauges are those? I love the style of them.

I like the progress so far. You and I share two things in common the intake and headlights lol. I am looking for a set of Machs right now, but the headlights that you have are awesome too. You def have the cleanest SPI engine bay - good work[thumb]

Yea hopefully we can continue to win games. Our starting pitching came along nicely so far this season. Relief pitching is terrible with the exception of burdak... dickeys been fun to watch all year.. and David wright is a great guy. I'll never forget back in 06 he was driving a red Camry out of the parking lot, and I talked to him for a good 10 minutes and got a few autographs. Real nice guy.
