Might just use the OEM antenna to make a shorty - this one isn't bad from afar but up close I don't like the difference in colour... maybe I'm just too picky?

Though I hate the stuff, this may be a place where Plasti-Dip could be used to 'color match' of sorts.

Ah yes, I've looked into Plast-Dip and it seems a little too expensive to get up to where I live. I may just use the stock antenna and chop it. I'm not really concerned with radio signal as my ipod is almost always plugged in.

Tried to install my suspension this weekend, decided to start with the front struts because I figured it would be harder than the rear... didn't make any progress because of a rusty bolt in the knuckle... Tried using some WD40 and knocking some of the rust out but still stuck - didn't have time to mess with it. Will have to try again next weekend since I will be house sitting for my parents and will have tons of time.

No progress on that rusty bolt. My front suspension is under warranty, so I scheduled one of my free oil changes and asked them to look over the front suspension and to change out the bolts.

"Universal" pedals above didn't fit so I'll just put them in my truck or give them to someone.

Still waiting on the passenger side mount to come in.

Forgot to mention that the colour match handles came in, I'll probably do it after work today but it depends on the weather. It has been raining for the past 2 days.
