Dood once you get it done it's going to look nice, keep at it.



As for me I am going out to the car with tools to go and pull the trunk apart and see what is behind the lining for possible mounts and running wires. Anyone with an 08+ know how to get power plugs and install them in the trunk?

Sweet ... so both of us can enjoy some fast runs. Yeah I got the Yokohoma S.Drives for the Front. The back tires still have tons of thread. Kumhos in the back. These Yokohoma feel so good ... much better than the Kumhos.

True ... but it still bothers me. And it is deeper into the car than yours.

Well I did, but it quickly turned into a project that is more fun than video games...

BTW fswerks is a dangerous web site, it has a tendency to make you spend money.

Also I stripped the trunk to the metal and it was a fun little project, had pics but camera deleted them somehow and found out after I put itback together. Oh well at least it was fun right? Sadly there is very little to bolt things to in there so when I start my trunk build I'll need to find a way to drill or stick things to it.
