Hahahaha, I have added a lot more mods already! Way more than I intended and I still haven't finished all the original planned mods yet.



If anyone has the chance to see Dynabeams in person, I highly recommend it! pics do not do them justice. They move back and forth when you turn them on(I assume it's for a self-test) They are just plain badass driving with them at night! Even the turnsignal is sexy as hell! The light-output far exceeds my ST170's but not as good as Machs, but for a halogen projector, I have never seen such a nice cutoff line!

I will update this pic each time I do new mods! How she sits now:



I will be updating this post for as long as I can while I install new things!

I swapped my needles today!



For those wondering about the instrument panel itself, the instrument panel is a Metal Monkey. Most people get them in silver, but I wanted black to stay OEM. If you look at the numbers, they are more crisp than OEM and the secondary guage lights are a lot more detailed. It also says metalmonkey.co.uk right under the tach needle

I decided to install the SVT center console I had lying around. It was for sale, but I guess nobody was interested in it. The trim ring from my old armrest console didn't fit on the SVT so I have an extra hole lol Now I gotta find something to put there. Now it's easier to use the seats since the armrest is not in the way. Also I pulled the seats out and shampooed the carpets and treated the seats with some leather conditioner.



Hopefully this weekend, I'll start on my headliner project

Looks great Brian!! Oh, wipe down your drivers headrest, LOL. Also looks like you are missing your cover for your transmission lockout, simple fix, take a trim push pin that is black, like holds down our cover piece for the hood latch, trim a little off the ribbed grippy end, and it covers it perfectly, I can snap a pic in a day or so if you want to know exactly what I mean. Damn your car is so HOT!!!

I can finally start on my headliner project! I have the European rear dome light, front map/reading lights, European sunvisors wrapped in Italian leather with blue stitching!
