Talking weekend project (pics soon)

I decided to do some more to my car this weekend (PAY DAY!) after all the bills i gotta pay i will have money left over for myself :-)

A friend who works at an electronic manufacturor hooked me up with some Green LED lights to put inside the car for the floorboards, I am going to also move my undercar LEDs to the midddle more on the sides, and I am going to replace my ATX shifter and put a boot on it thanks to the WONDERFUL tutorial somone posted on here (i forgot your name, but you = the shiznit)

Ill post pics sat night cause it has to be dark out to see the lights :-P or i could just move it into my friends garage and turn the lights off...either or, i cant wait to see what they look like and get some of your guys opinion.

i thoguht about that while i was doing it, but totally forgot about doing that until after they were in :'( I am having my friend email the pics of the lights tonight, but here is the shifter....

YES I KNOW!!!!!! the inside of my car is filthy right now.



I mounted the LED lights on the passanger side just below the glove box, there is a little plastic lip that came off easily and was the perfect spot. on the driver side, there is a sheet of metal behind the plastic column, so i had to mount one on either side of the floorboards. Ill post the L.E.Ds tonight. Be sure to tune in! :-P

LOOKS GOOD! Much better that that crummy stock T-Handle ford LOVES to stick on their Autos.. i wish they would take a page from the Asian or European Imports and make an attractive shifter, either Gated or a Audi style.

NICE

Where can I get something like that? My brother had an avenger from dodge once and it had a shifter similar to that. Loved it.

Nice shifter, never seen that style anywhere, who makes it?

Congrats on the install, and you're welcome for the how-to.
