:( no ones got nothing to say about my car, this is depressing. lol

so what do you guys think i should do for the interior i was think that i should black out every thing that is plastic then do some kind of cloth for everything else but it has to have green in it. and i cant really find many cool materials that have green in it except for some checkerboard stuff.

so im doing the interior of my car and this is the cloth i bought to do my head liner, door cards, and shift/brake boot. i have to order more so i can do the rear shelf and i want to wrap the head rests in it too.

it matches great with the tan/beige interior





so here is my question i want to paint the plastic trim but dont know what color to do it in. also the dash and console area. i was thinking of bring in the outside color in like do the oh **** bars green like the out side and a few peices on the consle dash area what do you think?

those tips came welded on from the manufacturer.

and i have a full cat-back. actualy i dont know what model number mine is bceasue my brother bought it when he had the car. i have a friend who has a magnaflow cat-back and his tips are oval and its sounds a little different and he also put in a TT 265* cam and chip and now its sounds even more different. lol i dont know what model he has either.


heres a example i found of my exhaust. dont know if its the same model or not.

thanks i think it turned out great. i do have to give credit to my mom though she did the sewing for the shift and brake boots.

nice, did you take the door panels off to do that?
yes i did take the door panels off.

Im having a change of heart on my paint scheme i do like my green and flat black that i did on the car but im thinking i should repaint all the black to flat white including the handles, side mirrors and the black part on the trunk. what do you guys think?

heres the car now so you can try to imagine it with white.



and i want to add the white to where the black plastic, on the plate tub, and around the lights frame.




i think it would make my car pop more. I have been playing around with the idea in my head for a few weeks now but not sure if i want to do it.

The car looks good in green. The problem is you need to lower that ***** !!lol
Its all about the stance . you will see it a lot different when its dropped 2+ inches. I know I did . What did you use to get the textured look on the bumpers or are they swapped for the actual items. They look great !! I want to get mine like that to finish my panda look lol

i went to home depot and bought rustolium flat black and sprayed it on.;)

well the lowering will be done soon enough just waiting to get done with some other projects before i move on to that.

i do think the flat white would look badass but i dont no yet. i want some more opinions.
