Thank you! I'm so glad to have them back in the car, I'd gotten so used to having no door panels it was almost strange driving with an armrest available. And the second phase of the interior projects should be done end of this week, depending on if the embroiderer is back from vacation. Thats super secret though, so will have to stay tuned to see what it is.

You ought to see Ashlyn in person! Pictures really don't capture how good the graphics on the hood look. They're incredible.

I know a *pewpew* secret about Ashlyn, but I'm not talking.

Love it. I like when people have some sort of personal touch like that.

Two thumbs up for creativity.

Thankee! That's why I like showing my car on here, the uniqueness is always appreciated. She's my art now, as well as my baby.

When I first bought her way long time ago and hadn't put my touch on her yet. Speaking of, haven't heard back from the PO after I sent him pictures and what all stuff I've done to my Ashlyn. Maybe it shocked him speechless.

These pew pew secrets won't take that long to do. A hint is I'm waiting on my ZHP shift knob to get here... so maybe a little over a week?

My ultimate goals? Well you guys know I'm serious about my car shows, so she's not going on the circuit until she's ready to bring home some trophies; and ultimately I'd like her to grab some magazine coverage, but idk maybe it'll happen. Right now I'm just trying to get her where everything is installed, paint is done, wheels on, stance I want done... you get the idea. She's getting there though, now with the interior done she definitely don't feel so incomplete. My fingers are really itchy to finish the tattoos though, just waiting on the weather and my painter still.

Aaaahhhhhhh. Nope, this phase was all about fixing everything that needed fixing and essentially making her a new car. Performance will come later, I'm at a good point for me to enjoy driving her as she is now. No point in having a super fast modded car that is broken down constantly because the basics were neglected.

Don't get me wrong, I upgraded what needed replacing, and didn't neglect overall performance. My brakes and suspension are some of my favorite mods to date, and have my TMS chip on the way right now. But I'm waiting on intense performance modding for later on.

I need to catch up on a few little things when the weather gets warmer.

Amber, you'd better treat us to a real photoshoot soon, I'm seeing some wallpaper potential.

Very true! Part of the reason I dont wanna start on something like that on panduh at the moment. She needs a LOT of attention.
