DinDan306's build thread

Well I've had the car for a while now and I've done a couple of things and just though I'd put together a thread to show what I've done and plan ahead for what's next.

When I bought her August 2011 about 38,000 on the clock:





Next came plastidipping the rims black:





I can't believe how high she sat.
then for christmas I got some emblem overlays and installed some alpine speakers.




Next came tint!



Then finally the drop!!





Then I dreamt of wheels for a long time and finally!!!




Then a minor hit and run in the parking lot happened to her but she's all fixed up now and this is how she sits today:






Next up I want to update some internals. Hopefully intake and exhaust next. I also want to get some of the eagle eye projectors. Annnyyway that's my car so far. More to come soon.

Great start! Tint, drop, heels are the 3 that should always be done first. Glad you got that out of the way Those wheels look great on your car! IMO: After header & exhaust - I would leave the headlights alone, de-badge it, tint the tails all red, & get a roof spoiler. How much of a drop is that?

hmmm, you know what? I just had an idea, it might not work but it would be interesting to see.



see how your tailight still has that clear part around compared to mine which i painted black? why don't you paint that part red? it would go with your theme imo

I've been thinking about doing that actually. Was thinking black instead of red though. I'm not so sure how that would look. Might be something to see though. If I had the skills I'd shop it first before I actually did it.

I do still have them and have been on the fence about selling them. Maybe in the future though.

Thanks man! Yeah I agree they are definitely the first things that should be done. I'm on the fence about debadging. Been so close a few times but I don't know why I've backed out. Eventually that will happen. Maybe tomorrow. lol. That's a good idea. Never though about getting a roof spoiler. I kind of like the smoked look of my tail lights. I'm not sure I can really picture in my head what you're talking about. Thanks for all the feedback dude!

Was on the fence about it but went ahead and debadged and I've got to say I do really like how it looks. Even after goo gone though there is a bit of residue not wanting to come off. Any suggestions on how to get this off without ruining paint?
