    Got some goodies on the way so I thought I'd start thread for my changes.

    Here's my 96 when I got it with 168k on the clock.

    Do you know kind of rear bumper lettering you have? As far as manufacturer/style?

    I like those rims! And tint is a good mod... I keep spending money elsewhere and kick myself for not blacking out my windows

    On order is new front an rear seat covers, steering wheel wrap an door panel covers. All that should have the interior back to good as new.

    Yesterday I hit the pull a part during the 50% off sale an got a Dr side tail light, manual Dr seat track, Dr side mirror glass, and a 98 cup holder.

    Today my used maximum motorsports caster/ camber plates came in. Don't know what springs I'll go with yet. That's all for now till everything comes in an I get a weekend off.....

    I think someone just painted it. I'll double check though. The car needs a paint job to....
    Thanks! They need centers an one has been curbed pretty bad. I'm watching Craig's list for something to replace them. I wouldn't mind some of the stock 17s that would have came on it. They are my favorite stock wheel.

    Those look good too, I see the stockers like this on Craigslist all the time... Keep looking you will find them for a deal if you are patient

    Some exhaust videos I made. High flow cats, x pipe an dumped flowmaster 10's. That's what I was told anyway, I haven't had time to get the car up an look over the underside.

    It's probably going to wind up with some tailpipe soon. It sounds good but idk if I can handle the drone long term...

    I was going to try restoring the lights on my car but for $31 shipped with new bulbs I figured wth. They are eagle eyes brand, hopefully I can see better at night with them.

    Here's the auction if anyone else is looking.

    It was hard to get a good picture with the sun behind the car. I need to get another one.

    Headlights look good! I'm pumped to get mine now, hopefully I can see better with this style than my crappy one piece style. Thanks again for sharing the link!!!

    Corner lights swapped out today with depo clears. I have a pile of stuff for the car but no time to install anything because of my work schedule.
