On one of my other cars I've installed undercar and engine bay LED's. They're every color but white. Illegal on the streets but we have some sort of 4 hour cruise-ins almost every night of the week somewhere in a 30 mile surround area. Once it turns dusk, you see loads of cars throw their lights on. Better in the fall and winter hours as the sun stays up till late in the summer.

There's also all kinds of shows (if your into that) that have special categories for lit up cars plus a parade or two held at night that allows you to have the lights on in the street.

My favorite ultra-cheap upgrade is just a couple cans of plastic-specific spray paint. When masked well, it can completely transform the look of your car by taking any faded plastic components, and restoring them to a new-looking finish

I did a bunch of cheap mods this summer......this picture shows three. A seat cover from Advanced Auto $19. A floor mat from Home depot $2 ea. And a custom sill plate from Home Depot made out of a rubber stair tread $2 per door.


Do you have part numbers?

Door edge trim down full length of door to protect paint, front & rear door, AutoZone $5 or so (yes i need to paint my rub rails)



Added exhaust tip after lunch box delete, $15 Auto Zone + K&N drop in filter (ok, K&N was $37 from AutoZone)


Added a 3-way 12v outlet that has 2 USB ports also for charging smart phones and Kindles $15 Auto Zone

Fog light tint..

Thanks for the foglight tint idea, i was wondering wear to get replacement lenses in yellow but this is much easier!

Here's a Amazon link for the lamin-X precut fog light tint-it adheres to the outside of the lens (Save you having to look through 1,362 results!)

Amazon.com won't ship to Canada, and Amazon.ca doesn't carry foglight tint. SoB!!
