My first "MODS" were headlight covers, vent visors, and a sunroof deflector..

Then I bought AC Delco Plugs and MSD Wires and put them in..

Then I bought a glowshift A pillar, and gauges, which I loved, but the sandwich adapter for the oil pressure sender started leaking so I pulled it off and sold it..Whick I regret because I could have bought a different sending unit..but I will do this mod again..

The exterior will have silver accents eventually..I didn't want to do one or two, prolly do a few at the same time..I will be two toning the brake calipers and brakets soon..Along with a silver arrowhead overlay, silver sct hood stripes, and maybe a grill kit..

Sam, appreciate the honesty, what is "a little much" about it? j/c

I'm very ocd and there are too many dark colors and the black on the dash and door panels are too shiny for my taste. Then compare that dark color to your seats and carpet and its just too much contrasting dark colors for me. But I see what you are going for and I like it. But like I said, just a bit much for my tastes.

The seats do stick out a lot compared to the rest of the newly colored interior.

You gonna reskin the seats, and the carpets too? Also, the rest of the steering wheel too.

I will be finishing the interior, yes..

I'm not sure exactly what to do with the steering wheel at this point, I know it looks half finished. But I'm not sure what to do with it..As far as the seats, I'm looking at two different brands, both in the $600+ range, and not of importance atm..Carpet will come as well, but I want a winter beater before that..

Meh, the LED strip look is more suited for trucks.

I just noticed...PAINT YOUR MIRRORS! They stick out like a sore thumb in those shots.

Other than that, sharp GA.
