Cheap Mods cuz I'm cheap

Don;t hate, we all don't have mad bucks to spend.

Pilot shift knob from autozone, cut the stock shaft down to shorten it (automatic). Also put the red button to activate the O.D.


Repositioned my hood release after it broke, works great


Painted a donor console black and used that instead of the armrest.

Home depot grille (not finished).


Aux power port


Pioneer H.U and speakers

appreciate what you are trying to do (especially with limited funds), but maybe clean the inside before posting pics. Around me atleast, there are car wash placers which have free vacuum units available. I have been known to go there before just to use the vacuum because I am too lazy to use my own.

Hey now don't hate on the dude. At least he's trying. Although he could have cleaned out the butterfinger crumbs under the E-Break.
