No new mods. I decided that since there was a meet the next day and my car looks like this...



...that maybe I should fix that.

So I did...

Then I picked up some new shoes and had them powder coated

18x9.5 Rota PWR's powder coated Takata green. They look a little brighter in this pic. Wrapped them in Michelin Pilot Supersports in 265/35/18

I took a day and dove head first into some Cobb front and rear shifter bushings and a Cobb short throw shifter. That was more of a pain in the ass than I care to comment on but it shifts a lot nicer now. Well worth the swearing. Finished it off with a Perrin reverse lock out and Perrin shift knob. And continuing in my quest to rid my interior of that cheap looking silver trim, it's now black. A couple pics:

During:


After:


And a few bad iPhone shots of the rear diffuser:

Hell of a nice day for some photos. Nothing new to report. I took a ton, these are some of my faves though:









A better pic of the updated interior:

What's the cnt exhaust like noise wise bud ?
Nice rumble at idle and low speeds. You certainly hear it coming. Bit of a drone at highway speeds.

It looks great, fills out the gaps in the bumper nicely, but its made of really thin walled stainless. My flex pipe decided to screw off, so I welded in a new piece and discovered just how thin it was. But for the price it's not a bad purchase.

Well, unfortunately I had a little run in with a blown out transport truck tire and due to oncoming traffic was unable to swerve. I cracked my front lip and smashed up my plastic under tray. But fortunately for me and my inner ricer, I was able to obtain zip ties that colour matched my wheels :D



It was a quick, temporary fix. I'll look at getting a metal skid plate and a new lip over the winter.
