Default Hello from Nebraska.

Hey all, first post here. Just picked up a new toy. Found an exceptionally clean and well taken care of '02 ssei. Every option available including moonroof, heated leather, 12 disc changer, etc. etc. Silver in color. I just had the windows tinted on it.

Looking forward to checking out the site more. I did just try a search for mud flaps to see if there was anything out there that looked good while still protecting the paint, but didn't come up with much. We live on a rock road, so I need to get some good looking spash guards (if there is such a thing) asap. Any help would be appreciated. I will try looking around a little more, maybe I missed something.

Anyways, great site and looking forward to spending some time here. I can't imagine the 3800 will stay completely stock for very long. Living out in th country like we do, we have a long drive for everything, even getting groceries, so need to be able to bring home the milk as fast as possible.

Welcome to the site. Sounds like a great car, look forward to seeing some pictures. GXPvenom might have some suggestions for mud flaps. He lives on a long dirt road.

Thanks guys. No pics yet, we had a blizzard here last week, so had the windows done before we picked up the car since the roads were terrible anyway. We just brought it home, but the roads are still a mess so we have one dirty ssei right now. It'* just a real clean silver bonnie with lightly tinted windows. As soon as we get a day above freezing and can get her cleaned off, we'll snap some pics.

As for mods, probably nothing too extreme right away as money is a little tight, and my shovel head needs some lovin' over the winter, so that is first. However, we will most likely start with some bolt on, easy power like air intake and maybe a */c pulley, and go from there. Haven't really put my plan down on paper yet. Need to do some major research and come up with a game plan and a chronological order of go fast goodness.

Eventually, I would like to end up with a real sleeper with some serious upgrades. Until then, we still have a nice ride with a little git up and some nice creature comforts. LIfe is good.

Hi Jay!

Welcome to the Bonneville Forum!

Please add your year and trim of your vehicle to your signature line. That way when you start asking questions in other areas of the forum, we all have a better idea on how to assist you. Click on "Quick Links" above, go down to "User Control Panel" and then click on "Edit your Signature" It'* pretty straight forward from there.
