Have added a few parts and cleaned the car up, claybarred and waxed.

Sanded out the hid's and polished (about 7-8 hours of work)
Added clear corners
CF hood (thanks Andrew)
new shift knob.. not on yet. [dunno]
still waiting on some lamin-x to put in new fog light.
Have also blacked out the lights in the grille (no pics yet).









Man, I love my SVTF!

These next few were inspired by LongDucDong from his thread here on FF!
[mine are nowhere near the quality of his, hope you don't mind Dong.]









Comments and critiques always welcome.
thanks for looking,
Barry

I have since (the pictures) painted the grille lights black - so it's a bit better, but I hear you, I would like a euro grille. Just can't get that frickin' money tree to grow, I think the dogs keep peeing on it. [:D]
I'll probably have to wait until Spring to add that.

Post processing on the 'puter. My speedo needles are normal. Last pic is B/W except the SVT emblem - that's why you can see a little tiny red reflection of my neighbors car in it.

looks good. those needles had me trippin out for a minute. that would actually be kinda cool to have crazy colored needles. Perhaps catmostfeared should give it a try to match the rest of his crazy color scheme

So you got you one. Nice car. I'm not a fan of the clear sidemarkers on red though, and I'd paint the fogs instead of the laminix. PM me how if you want. I love carbon fiber[thumb]

Thanks for the offer, man, but I already ordered the lamin-x stuff. Car had a broken fog on drivers side, got the new already.

I felt kinda bad for the mishap between the interior pics pm and all... I apologize again and hoped that you didn't think I was blowing smoke at'ya. I really had looked at sooo many SVT's that when I happened upon this one, w/ less than 40K on it, I jumped on it.

And I really was seriously thinking yours over (I know you don't care now) when I came across this one. I love your car and it is super-clean [well, I can't stand the mid wing but that is preference and can be corrected [:p] ]

I had even set up a day to drive to Iowa to look at cconley's Sonic EAP SVT and my wife threw a fit about me wanting to drop $9000 on a used car w/ 85K on it (kinda saw her point). Bad night at my house, though, I tell'ya that. [bash]

anyway, I appreciate the offer and if the lamin-x crap (its expensive enough - $18 to do two tiny fogs) doesn't hold up I'll probably hit you up about painting them. And you have a great ride, and you oughta try and keep her... [thumb] it looks like you have done a lot of work to it and you never get that back out of them...

[cheers]

Definitely looking good, Barry. We'll have to get together sometime and take some pictures with the four of us (or more)...and regardless how tempted you might be; no grabbing my chest next time. [hihi]
