finally did something aesthetic for the car

bought some cheap 20w ebay angel lights to see how they are. They aren't all that. Inner ring is pretty bright but not anywhere near lci bright. Outer ring is pretty iffy.

had my chrome kidney grills painted bsm to match.

new emblems.

new spoiler.







more in my album

Gizmo, when you going out to the next meet? I'd like to compare the angel eyes to yours.

Pulling the trigger on a FMIC... I figure it'd be a good purchase with the wonderful temps we have in SA...

Noticed this on my car this morning when the sunlight hit it. No clue when/where it happened. Anyone have a PDR recommendation in the SA area?

Well I ended up searching around on Google and found a shop on Babcock that got rave reviews. Went there, and I can see why there were good reviews all around. Dent is gone like magic and they were very professional. If anyone needs work like this done, head to http://www.concoursautosalon.com/ on Babcock near Wurzbach.

Does anybody know someone that will be looking for a room mate any time soon? I'll be there in December, and in the middle of a divorce now, so I'll be coming alone, plus a dog. Puts quite the change in my original moving plans! So again, anybody know someone looking for one? Thanks!

Just checking in. Just landed a few days ago here and waiting for my car to get shipped here. Love the area but not the traffic.

Would any of you know of a good (cheap) exhaust shop in town? All I need are some tips welded on.

^Not sure about your headlights, but your wheels look like they've corroded pretty bad.

Seriously - there are headlight remedies out there that might eliminate the need for wet sanding, unless yours are exceptionally weathered. Have you tried any of them, particularly the ones from Mother's or Meguiar's?

When I had a chevy pickup, I had exhaust work done at this place:
http://www.nawtruckaccessories.com/contact.aspx

They don't just do trucks, they do exhausts for cars too, and the quality of the work and the welding was excellent. If I ever need something welded on in the future I would definitely go there.
