Talk to me about tinting the fog lights. What product do you use?

Also, what wheels did you get? What size?
Just a generic off the shelf tint. Double layered.

Soap, water, squeegee, heat gun.

18x8. Rays Volk.

These were take offs and sale on a local online ad. I lucked out with timing I guess. They sre an older model it seems, but they look great against that blue.

Window visors have been ordered.

And I'm done my shopping list. Just a waiting game for everything to come in.

Should have a very useful, fun, sporty touring vehicle by late October. And now I can just enjoy it. Other than some odds and ends (perhaps emblem change?).

Can't wait to get her undercoated, PPF'd and tackle some snowy winter conditions!!

Your car looking great. You made good with getting the manual. I myself drive a 17 Impreza Sport with 5Speed. Your wheels are awesome. I wonder whats the offset? I have a set of Sparco Pro Corsa wheels 18x8 with 245/40-18 tires. I bought them from a guy in Kanas as a complete set. I might get 225/40-18 next to have the same tire diameter as the stock tires.
Everything else with your car coming along great. I also find your Jeep amazing! Keep it up.

Looking great. I see you got snow already.
Yep. And put on the winters!

Today I was forced into changing out the stock shift boot as my clumsy cigarette dropped an ash while shifting, burning a hole.

No trouble. 15$ and 10 mins, I had blue accent stitching and a much thicker shift boot than factory as a nice detail for the interior. Of course it was just a cheap universal from Shamazon, Chy-nuh. Which means I'm gonna need to change the shifter knob itself as it doesn't work together well.

Already on it. Went with the exact same anodized model I had on my Type R integra back in university. Low and behold, good to know they are still in fashion! Ordered in blue anodized.

Will update when shift knob is in!

I really like the blue accents. Can't wait to see the blue shift knob. I have a Grim Speed knob that solid metal direct screw on. Even came with adaptor to hold the shift boot up. It's also made for cars that have pull up ring for reverse. It has a nice weight of one pound which helps making shifting much smoother like butter!
