My dad needed the garage for his Camaro, and my car is still technically under work (rear view camera just needs to be looked at, might have missed a wire during installation). Most of the driver side trim was off, and so was the center AC trim and the trim piece that goes around the stereo. I decided that I didn't want thieves to come along, see a nice stereo just completely unsecure and uncovered, and steal it. The trim pieces might have to come back off later (at least the one that surrounds the stereo), but it'* not hard to get them off. I will say that I like how that dash kit looks when everything is put together.

rebuilt my atv'* rear shock, kawi dealer wants 1200 for a new one. people who rebuild them get 120-150 plus parts. i got the kit and oil for 40. you just have to be able to nitrogen charge it, fortunately we have that at work.

if you look in that upper pic there is a tire valve on the shorter side. we have a/c repair tools at work so i just bought a fitting that adapts the nitrogen regulator to the size for compressor quick connects for tire valves and such
