Thanks guys! Yeah, the hood is Losiracer's old hood. Mine had sun damage to the paint. Still have it.

The headlights are assembled like this, they came in all chrome and black. I blacked mine out. They have pretty good light output. I'm sure they're not as good as a full-on retrofit, but I can't afford to do that right now anyway.

Thanks again for the comments guys!

lol i knew i saw it somewhere before that looks good

New project for the day/night:

Looking at my MR pics you'll see my front driver side rim has major curb rash (that way when I got the car). Well, I got SICK of looking at it. I took the wheel off, filed it down a bit, sanded it from 120 up to 1000 grit sandpaper. Then I took some polishing compound and a drill, just got it smooth. I'm still working on it, but it looks a LOT better.

Got some EDM Stanley side markers from a friend today!

Before I do the other side marker I'm going to get my hands on a dremel. I did the first one with drill bits and files. Fuck that.
LOL! Just be careful not to get too zealous with the dremel. It was getting dark and I was trying to hurry on one of mine and it went skipping up the fender :LOL:!

But it would sure beat the drill/file part!

Oh yes, I know about that! Trust me.. I made my own window cutout on my old computer tower once.. good thing I was using textured paint or there would be those pigtail gouges visible everywhere.

These are Ray's side markers by the way!

Yeah, I stopped by his house right after he dropped them off to you. Those things have been in mothballs for a LOOOONG time. I think he has had them sitting there for like 3 years now.

At least now they are being put to good use.

From www.procarparts.com but they're not available there anymore. Might find them on ebay once in a while. Mine were originally chrome - see this pic:



Someone backed into my car and busted a headlight out, so I blackhoused them when I found a replacement headlight.

Your dash appears to have grown a carpet.

Yep! haha.. I like it though, it keeps the reflections from the dash out of my eyes. That, and my gf likes to put her feet on the dash. Oh, and it keeps my sunglasses, cell phone, and whatever else from sliding out the passenger window when I'm doing those sharp turns.. haha

"My dashboard has a toupe"

I too love the decal. I couldnt find one online, so...rare decals ftw lol.

I remember seeing those headlights years ago and actually almost bought a set. If i come across a pair, im definitely picking them up.

I had a question about your fogs(everyones fogs really...) but how were they w/o the rubber booties? Did they mount/fit just fine? Are they really just for keeping water from getting in behind them?

Keep up the good work.

As far as I know only the USDM models came with them, because they were a dealer installed option which means some underpaid worker cut the holes out himself and to hide the shitty cutting job they put the boots on there. Mine are actually rubber trim pieces for doors, to keep the paint from chipping when it hits walls and such. I stuck it in boiling water and let it get nice and soft, then quickly installed it (with the bumper and fogs on.. haha).

Rubber door trim eh...? Ya pick that up at a hardware store?

Ive seen the actual booties that the dealers used. Im just curious of the purpose a trim. Is it really necessary? I imagine its not, but...

I got mine at Checkers. Like I said, I'm pretty sure it was used to cover up the hack job they did to cut the hole for the fogs on the bumper, since it's a dealer option, not a factory install.

Oh, and keep checking ebay for the headlights. They've been popping up occasionally.
