AWE-SOME!!!

Looks really good. I LOVE the stitching on the dash. The saddle brown looks really good too. Are you planning on lowering or putting different wheels on it? I've been struggling between modding or leaving stock as I really like the design.

i was thinking of getting some springs and maybe an aftermarket exhuast.

i'm an expert on modding trucks, lifting them, etc. as i've owned and modded a bunch of F150's. currently have a 2006 black supercab, 4x4, with a body lift, suspension lift, borla exhaust, polished rims w/36" superswampers, billet grill, etc. it's really clean looking and great off-road. not so great for towing the boat.
but i don't really know much about modding cars. don't want to go the honda civic/rice-burner route...... know what i mean?

nope.

on a side note - your car has the type of mods i like. it looks like a clean, improved version of what came from the factory IMO

i guess i need to start researching springs, exhaust, etc.

something new to occupy my time and blow some $ on!
yahooo.

wider tire(s) dont compensate for the spacers, you need ur wheels to move outward abit to be aligned with the car body.

This is the mistake I did, I had wide sidewall tire(s) that caused minor rubbing with the spacers, so I prefer stick to the same size + spacers

I took some cell phone pics yesterday evening. I haven't put them on my lap top yet. But I will soon.

In typical fashion, I soon as I drove of the lot with the top down, black clouds rolled in and I drove home in the rain (with the top up of course). The last time a bought a convertible was my M Roadster. Drove that baby home in a freak snow storm.

You were right on about the dash. Man that stiching is awesome!!!!

Alreay paired with my iPod and Blackberry. Wow!

I have to say Gene, out of all the modded 6s I've seen posted, I think you did the best job. Clean, mean, and sophisticated!!! Seriously. Nice job.
