Default Part 1 of my summer project: Complete. UPDATE: Sirius Radio

Finally got some time this weekend to finish up on some stuff I've been meaning to do for awhile. So happy to be down I figured I share some pictures.

So I managed to get a hold of some clear corners and got my windows tinted. I must say, the bonne is sexy as is, but adding corners and tint, makes for one fine lady.

Some more pics.

Tint grade is 38% (not legal in Minnesota, but worth it).

While I was waiting for my window tint to finish, I was talking to the wife of the owner. Some how I ended up telling her about the Bonneville Club website, turns out the place gives out discounts to auto clubs .

So if you're in Minnesota and need your windows tinted, check out Gjerdes Solar Shield The cost for the Bonnes is $300.

Also this weekend, I managed to get some neons installed (took two days because it kept raining).

I added 2 blue strops and 2 led bars in the front grill. I hooked them up, along with my radar detector and a red neon inside, to this wonderful device.

Found that off of ebay. The thing is quite small (about the size of your hand), so I concealed it under the dash so it can't be seen.

I'll have some pics of the lights once it gets dark.

Hope you like.

Gotta figure the # of windows and the complexity of the rear window.

Tint looks good BTW

Yeah, they had to remove my back seat to install the back window tint. Took an hour and a half with four guys working on it,

Got dark enough that I could take pics of the neons. Forgive me on the quality, my camera seems to dislike taking night pictures without the flash. Its definitely more impressive in person (the light have an underbody effect as well as lightning the grill).

And here is a video of the strobes in action. The camera had a bit of a problem recording them.
