Default New Mods......

I painted my grille to match the color of my paint.


Put a voltmeter where the cig lighter was.


Mounted an amp for my 6x9'*. I put a aluminum plate behind the thin board it'* mounted on. It'* sloppy but I'll hide the wires later.


Fiberglass Box for a 15" sub.


New exhaust. You can see the old under it in the pic.


I welded on a IMCO dual outlet muffler. Sounds pretty damn good. Better than the glass pack.


Finished box and mounted amp to the trunk floor. I ran the wires under the carpet and slit holes for them.


I put in new fog lights. I forget who they are made by I got em from Wal Mart. Behind them I put in some extra headlight housings from a 67 covette. Maybe that will shave down my 1/4 mile time .


Last but not least, I am proud to announce that I got engaged in October before I went TDY. This is my Fiance Audre and I.


I am also getting ready to put struts on. Monroe Sensatrac that I found for cheap. And
in no particular order I will also put in new 180 thermostat, fuel filter, and PCV valve. I think that'* all I have going on now but if I think of anything else I'll post it.

Nice work

Thanks GAMEOVER

I came up with the idea to put the voltmeter there because I wanted to keep myself from smoking in my car. Just a little reminder when I pushed on the voltmeter and it wouldn't lite up for me.

BTW I painted the bulb inside of the voltmeter to match all lights inside but can't get a good picture in the dark.
