I kinda like the dash emblem... It's interesting in an odd way.

Probably smallest mod ever...

Something was just missing about my new ISU license plates. Painted the screws red to match the plates, that fixed it. It's such a small detail, but makes a big difference.

My custom 3rd brake light vinyl came today. Would have liked it to wrap around the side more, but I guess having the red showing around the edges is ok.

Was not satisfied with the ebay decal 3rd brake light, the decal shape was not exact to fit the light, and the letters were too close together to be readable from a distance. So I borrowed OBZ's idea to nightshade, but removed the letters when finished.
