Default The wifey is upset I don't give her minivan any love (pics)

She says I spend too much time with the GP...so I decided to give the Minivan some attention

Took the better part of yesterday afternoon/evening and part of today to clay,buff and NXT wax her up!


It our 97' Mercury Villager....with 80k on the clock.
I put a flip down 7" LCD when we got it a few years ago...and I recently added the DVD under the seat...cutting the seat with a sawzall to put er in.
I also put a FM modulator for stereo sound with the movies...
Kiddos love it!

Ya...it worked out well right there!
I have a remote for it....so I don't even really have to look at it..
Remote and on-screen tells me whats going on!

I lucked out with that.....I removed the whole seat and disassembled it.
I drew out where i wanted it on the frame and cut the hole and then traced it out on the plastic.

Worked like a charm! Just got to pop the plastic back off one more time to sand and smooth the edges a bit....i can see where i scored and snapped the piece out.

Another view....
