      ohh that sounds right I'll have to go back in there and check it out. I still have to find a place to mount my other horn which I took off.

      Which reminds me, Does anyone who did the fog light on prefacelift mod have pics of what they did with their horn to mount them? I'm kind of tired of my horn sounding wimpy.

      update:


      Planning on hardwiring it. Not a fan of the coil cord in the way of the radio and my only cigarette plug.

      yeah I hear ya. I really want to get a v1 but no way I can afford it lol, this will do the job though, anything is better than nothing.


      well since my shift knob was pretty nasty looking (The black leather started turning green around where I usually grip it), I was telling my dad that I'd probably buy a new one, he then suggests I just use some shoe cleaner on it to make it look brand new again. Couldn't believe how well it worked.

      used this stuff I got from walmart a long time ago:


      And ended up doing the shift knob and boot, and it looks practically new. Everything is black now no more green one some parts and everything looks great:

      no idea what I'm going to do but they won't be black like I have now . I'll have to see what they look like first ik one has bad curb rash. My dad has a paint sprayer at my grandpas so I'm thinking I might pick up some stock looking paint or one of those silver wheel paint from autozone or something and go over it with the spray gun. Either way I'm stoked to get them.

      225 45 looks pretty good but I think I prefer the slightest stretch, and like the 205 45 the best. I just need to find a set on the cheap and wait to start my summer job again to get tires

      my wheels have arrived


      It's raining out now, but I'll test fit them either later today or tomorrow if it stops raining. The tires are surprisingly a little good. I may be able to use them for a little while. one wheel has pretty bad curb rash though and it ruined the lip, won't be able to do much to fix it I don't think

      I think you should just pick up a 5th one, and keep the rash one as a spare

      thanks yeah I'm extremely happy with the price I paid for them. And yeah I'm probably going to try and source one sometime from the classifieds or ebay if they ever pop up. They sell them individually on ebay for 145 shipped but they're replica wheels and I don't know how the quality is

      sorry for the pic whoring

      Tires are so fat the control arm doesn't clear. If I had an extra couple mm's I'd be able to clear it but these are not the tires for me.
