Day -4 - Buying the car in Oregon and shipping it to Colorado

Thank you Borti for giving me this image of #352



Here she is, window sticker and all. At the dealer lot in Hillsboro, OR

Did they park it too close to the curb or is it just me?

Day 0 - The car arrives 10 days earlier than quoted

The car arrived Thursday the 15th of March. I had to fly to Chicago on Friday so in the garage it went.

Day 4 - First mods Car Bra and Valentine 1 hardwire

Got back on Sunday. First mod 19Mar07. Clear bra and Valentine 1 hardwire.

You can barely see the line from the bra, and if you look closely in the pictures, my reflection is there.

Modded as per the guide here. Thanks to Submission1 for the installation. Cursing at the extra wiring for the sunroof was an added bonus.

^Haha, I had some fun with that too. I finally tapped the right wire and got it all done. I did post which wire to use in the "How To" forum... glad you got it figured out though.

Enjoy the modding journey :tup:
It was trying to shove the wiring back into the map light pocket that was the hard part. It really was a lot of wires to stuff back in there.

Sorry about the delay. But I took time out this morning to take some pics. Sorry about the cloud glare. A 20% tint.

That 20% looks excellent. I just got a ticket for my Nevada/Limo/Pimp tint. I gotta reduce the darkness so 20% may be the way to go.:cool:

I fortunately live in Colorado, where the legal limit is 28%. 20% is barely noticeabley darker, and most cops wear sunglasses anyway. With the sunroof of a Limited open during the day, interior illumination changes the perspective even more.

With the sunroof and sliding cover closed or from dusk to dawn, you can't see in. Casual inspection of my expected things in the car will be much harder as well.

I'm heading to a meet in Colorado this weekend. I'll post pics from there.
