Just finished painting the interior trim red as well as the side defroster vents. The vents look sick and are probably my favorite since they stand out so well. Did the door handles black but might change to red later on.

Also, I found a fellow balt out tonight at a pool party go figure. She didn't know of this site but I'm sure she'll be on soon. I helped her out and did both our balts over at once with a third break light "COBALT" stencil. She posted this picture afterwards. (I'm the red SS, her's the Silver LS)

i did a couple of things on this list. i installed a armrest which really is cool. went to a junkyard, got the bracket and everything for under $20. Two of the clips that hold the armrest up were broke, so i glued the broken pieces back in there. i took the cover on the armrest off and wrapped it with carbon fiber.

Don't know if this was mentioned, but the easiest, cheapest and a surprisingly effective 'mod' is always going to be weight reduction. Just like Gran Turismo, but it won't cost you 26,000 Credits. Start with simple things like loose objects or trash buildup. Move on to floor mats, cargo liner, engine cover, things like that. If you're serious, unbolt and remove the rear bench/passenger seat. You'll save a few pounds, which will yield somewhat better performance and fuel economy. I did all this and made the claim as to possibly owning the world's only four door, single seater car. Worth it if you regularly drive alone and if performance is your top priority.

Reserved on modifying

I have to admit I am cautious about modifications other than to performance but my wife loves added lights so I am thinking about adding some lights both to the interior and under the car. I have to check and see if the undercarriage lights are legal in Louisiana.

Yeah, I would just go with foot well courtesy lighting. After I'm done installing the fog lights(if it can stops raining) I'm doing this to the 2010 project.
