Wink MARIO K's Winter Journey: What I've Been Up To For The Past Few Months!!

I've been way too busy lately to take nice pics or post a thread, so this is the best I can come up with now.

Let me start off with the complimentary "Beware 56k & Shitty iPhone pics"


So it begins, time for a new steering wheel. I've put off changing the non-sport steering wheel for the longest time. But when a badass deal came up with practically a brand new sport wheel, I couldn't resist!

SUDDENLY A WILD AIRBAG APPEARS. Waiting for this little bastard was the toughest part, also got a great deal over on 1addicts..

Got the new MF buttons, and was ready to install. I thought the sport trim looked plain so I went over to stealership and bought the most expensive sticker of my life.

MEH. Didn't like how the sticker looked either so I wandered over to m3post and found a MINT condition trim. SOOOOO much better IMO.

Why not change up the CF? Bought some micro suede fabric for the trim.

Left some CF because I was feeling artsy and shit.

Got carried away and did part of the upper trim. Didn't want to get rid of my beautiful stickers so I came up with something more unique. My performance shift knob also came in!

Final product plus a little more black touches. LCI cup holder trim, black door things you shut the door with, black door handles, and black speaker covers (not pictured).

My girlfriend went out of town, and I was stuck dog-sitting for her... The dog human-sat me.

DAWWWW PUPPPPPYYYJHASFVUWS. His name is Leopard Fish and was my Christmas present to her.

CF Intakes Got another great deal, so I ordered two intakes, one for me, and one for my neighbor/good friend Max.

Had it on in under 15 minutes!

Here's my car by Max the Mexicans car, he locked his keys in his trunk at autozone, of course he would call me to come save him. "The Maxican" is his user name, he just joined recently. Everyone say "Hi Max the Mexican".

AND THEN IT RAINED. Cars look so much better under the rain.

I warn you, what you are about to see cannot be unseen..












Don't say I didn't warn you. I threw some vinyl on for a photoshoot, just for the sake of being different

lolz man. you've been quite busy over the winter! DUDE, suede trim wrap looks awesome!!! i'd say go ahead and do up the suede on your ash tray cover. CF is cool, but looks weird with the suede.

btw, i like how your car w/ the yellow stripes match the ikea building, hahaha.

You have come along way dude. Interior now looks great and the yellow time attack looked good with ikea building behind it

Now what's this I hear about you coming my way. It's not the darkside it the right side. I think a nice 9.5 front 11" et 24 will be a good start
