4/ dyed parcel tray installed
5/ Showing the difference between my current carpet (argh!) and the dyed carpet still to be installed in the front section

omg i was thinking of doing something similar to that. was going to mount them upside-down over the brake cooling ducts though, and leave the covers off at all times. photoshopped them and everything! (i always do that before i do any mods now. saves money and time if i decide i dont like it)

Here's some of pictures of my car, which is a WIP.

Bumper is currently has one side pushed, the other out, making it look somewhat bad. T^T
Also needs front emblem. D:


Put new emblem on, now it's Super Sexy!


Seats have cover because I'm not much one for leather, and because the seats are falling apart and I have no money for new ones.


New stereo (premier DEH-P310UB) and shift knob and boot (Boot is ripping already due to the fact that reverse causes it to grind together.


No buttom cover. D:


Actual condition of the dash. Anyone know where I can get a new one???

The dashboards in both of mine are cracked as well, but I agree - that is probably the worst I've seen.

I agree they look awesome on 2002's, I'm just trying different things out, plus I had fun welding the bracket up, Its removed right now, installing and removing it is as easy as removing a front plate

What, lol? You said the double post was fail, but I'm saying that the pictures are not fail-like, because the car looks nicer without the lights.

Is that confusing?
