I have more to show! This is an unexpected turn of events.

Here is one missing tail light:

A friend owed me $10, so that was the cost of tail light tinting (VHT Night Shade)

This is being done properly. We're doing several coats with sanding in between. Also, 1337ssei came over, so between his single Bonneville and the two Bonnevilles I own, we had a mini meet. Here are some horrible pictures:

We installed a 1.5-din Alpine head unit in his car, and pictures of this are coming shortly. He will probably post them. So, that'* my 10-13 update. Let me know if you have any questions or anything, and I love the props for this so far. Thanks for the inspirational comments!

Who wants to see my tinted tail lights? They're so freaking tinted, but they're still legal. I went to Auto Zone and picked up the brightest 194, 1156, and 1157 bulbs they had. The 1157 is a bunch of LEDs. Even though LEDs are normally lesser than bulbs, one is brighter than two normal bulbs. I have two working ones per tail light, but the center lights (trunk lid) are not working. I'll take pictures of that, the sub installation, more speaker goods, some door panels, cleaning products, etc. It'* 1:51 AM, but I'm just so happy with the way the tail lights turned out. They could have been a bit lighter...

Not only did I take more pictures, but you now finally get to see more of the car with the new wheels on it! It'* been a while, hasn't it? These are my latest pictures, and they show how the left tail light on the trunk lid is a bit off ever since I've put it back on. I'll take the lights off again and have another look soon. Here you go:

The front looks completely horrifying.

The back, however, could look 100% furnished if I were just to clean it up and throw in the back seat.

I'm trying to pick up a roll of red crushed velvet on ebay for about $4.99 shipped. I hate to spoil the pictures, but I want to line the sub box with it because I'm crazy. That'* right - I'll look crazy in the next set of pictures. Here'* the trunk as a result of going to 1337ssei'* house to help him with his speaker setup (as inspired by me!!!!), of which I have pictures for him to post. Please consider that the area way into the trunk and to the right is not rust; I don't actually know what that is, but it'* going to be cleaned up.

This is the most ghetto/rice I've ever made my car look because of how dirty it is. Sorry, guys. Also, I think it'll soon be time to leave these wheels behind if aesthetic mods make them stick out more. However, I love how light reflects on them and shines against the ground. This is best seen at night at gas stations and bright parking lots. Also, I need to fix the part on the rear side, where I punched out a dent but couldn't save the paint that had been chipped off.

I edited the post to make it more like what I wanted to let you know. I don't think at all that the rims make it look ghetto, but the reason I think they should go some time in the future is that they don't seem to fit just right. But that'* far away since I'm overly satisfied.

If you'd like to swing by, there'* a whole lot more to do. We can invite over 1337ssei again for a great mini meet among my two Bonnevilles and you guys. 1337ssei has a 1000W mono amp arriving on Friday, and should he happen to get his Type-R sub by then as well, we should have fun. I may need lots of AA batteries for all the work we could do.

I'm making plans still to do speaker wiring for the front door panels. I think that'* gotten so old that I'll just stop mentioning it until it'* actually done. Might someone assist me with my Wanted ad?

Riding, there'* plenty of fabrication to do if you'd like Let me know, and we can do some crazy things whenever you get some free time.
