Hey guys, it'* been a while (almost a year :o )since I posted any updates about the car. Work has been keeping me extremely busy all the time. I've done a few odds and ends to it since the last real update. Projector retrofit, new fog lights, playing around with my horns, and just keeping it running. Rust is really taking its toll on the body. My rockers are getting worse and worse. With any luck, I'll be upgrading some time next year.
Anyways, he are some pics:
One of my first mods of the new year was painting the inside of my headlights:
They're in desperate need of some touch ups, the paint behind the passenger DRL bulb was too thin, and the heat from the bulb dried it out and caused it to flake. I also have to paint behind the projectors to eliminate some of the glare I'm getting.
Projector fog lights from Jason (eltatertoto), and an Indiana plate, which I'm still rocking
Got some fog lights for behind my grille, and later removed the projector fogs. I wasn't really happy with their output.
Blacked out the grille with plasti dip
Probably my most custom project, my projector retrofit.
AUX reverse lights
Fender stripes are back for a while
New lower fogs.
Some support for a local group.. Buddies Against Drunk Driving. All proceeds from the decals went to MADD
Minor damage from an old woman in a Corolla.
The summer included a few small road trips to places I haven't been in a while.
That includes most of the progress on the car in the last year. Some future mods I have been debating are a set of home made PVC train horns. I'm slowly getting everything together to make them, and basically figuring it out as I go. I have a 10 gallon air tank that I'm going to keep in the trunk, hooked up to a 12v compressor. I'm planning on having two hoses coming off it..one going to the valve for the horns, and the other will be a 25' air hose with a quick connect coupler on the end for an air chuck, blower, etc.
I'm also thinking about getting rid of all the blue interior lights and going to something a little more tame. Either a warm or cool white.
I know this has gotten quite long.. so I'll finish it at this..for now.
Thanks for looking guys.
