I still have a some way to go on the list (below) that I started on my introductory thread. Thanks to all the advice on this site the mods to date have gone pretty smoothly.

Short Term Mods:
- Remove faded plastic stripes from the doors.
- Remove stupid front license plate holder, once I find the correct damn tool.
- Remove scratches and small dents in the paint/body.
- Back window tint to match rear windows.
- Colour code wing mirrors.
- Winter tires ( for when it snow here....which is often ).
- Fix condensation in passenger headlight.
- Paint Bowties.

Next Summer:
- New alloys and tires. Woot!
- Upgrade exhaust and intake, once I've learned how to do this.
- Still not 100% happy with the LS bumper so I might change it.

Longer Term:
- Read my Haynes manual
- Seat covers.
- New headlights.
- Interior upgrade.
- Look into lowering.

Stock Pictures October 09:




Mods December 09: (Removed license plate holder and plugged holes, painted front grill and bowtie).


More Mods December 09: (Sexy winter tires, debadged, removed side stripes, cleaned and waxed)


More Mods December 09: (Tinted rear window, new black headlights)




More mods December 09: (Exhaust tip - good until I get a new exhaust, satin black mirror trim and d.i.y. arrival blue mirror caps)




Mods May/June 2010: Crazy busy at work but I finally got my arse into gear:
- Lowered on Eibach Sportlines
- Repainted bowtie black/silver
- Stubby antenna
- 17" RTX Poison Rims
- Maxxis 205R45/17 Tires
- Cleaned/Polished/Waxed
- Yeah, I hear ya, time for some performance mods!




Slowly but surely is my motto, lol. More mods coming soon. Watch this space.

Thanks G. Heh, my colour senses were tingling....I'm going to play with black/silver/red accents to contrast the blue. They appear anyway what with tires, tints, lights, alloys, etc so IMO I think it will still look pretty clean.

I'll be sure to request a sig when I have a sigworthy picture :bigsmile:

I have to admit that Nash is a fantastic player. I'm a Canucks fan myself though and my kids shout for the Sens!

Thanks Lobalt! I agree blue balts are def the best! :bigsmile:

Thanks Punk, I used a victory red touch up stick for the red outline.

Made a couple more exterior mods over the holiday break - exhaust tip and painted wing mirrors. Need to wait until spring now for the new wheels and springs. Hmm, I might upgrade the intake in the meantime though.
