Finally got pics! You'd think someone carrying at least two cameras at any moment would have more pictures of her ride, but nooo...





I lost the license plate holder up front somehow (probably rammed it into a curb at work -- they really oughta lower those things), and I'm waiting for a cop to pull me over and tell me I have to have a front plate before I replace it, because I like the way the bumper looks without it.

Still undecided on the deer whistles (those black things below the headlights). I mean, I'm pretty sure they're useless (not that I've asked a deer for its opinion, despite several of them bedding down beneath my living room window on weekends and chatting among themselves -- they talk more than you'd believe), but I'd have to get putty to fill the holes and paint and clear-coat and...wait, I'm doing that anyway, on other parts of the car. Never mind. Nuking the deer whistles first chance I get.

It'* hard to see on the rear photo, but there'* a USCG emblem stuck on there. It'* the only decal I haven't taken off, because it represents my grandpa'* war service. I think I'm gonna just let it be until further notice.

I think I'm gonna take the long weekend to scrub and shine what I can (man, the wheels need help, badly -- and yes, I left the decorative nuts off, because I thought they looked silly) and catalog any exterior fixes.

As for the interior, I just tried to get a nice pic of the "command center." Got out my wide angle adapter, got the lighting figured out, got all the devices queued up so there'd be plenty of blinkenlights...and then found out my camera'* battery was dead. I rock like that. ;) So there'll be some pics of the interior mods coming up as soon as the planets align properly.

Nice looking car. A day of TLC polishing and waxing will really wake that car up and make it scream.

Nice ride. I saw the first pic and was like "What the heck are those goofy looking things in front of the headlights?" I forget where I read it but yea I'm pretty sure they don't actually work

Great looking ride! I'm planning on getting deer whistlers here soon because I've heard they work. Also with me always driving on back roads, I don't really want to risk it any further but I'm planning on putting mine up in my bottom grill where, hopefully, people won't notice them as much as they would up by the headlights
