would look cleaner in you mounted the gauges in the car somewhere?? i have seen people mount the gauges in the AC vents. just an idea.

Trinity is a nice lil toy. are you going big turbo or stock? did you mount the EGT sensor in the exhaust manifold?

Tein springs with what struts?

Hey Turbo1013,
Posted a while ago about your stripe that you got from PEP Boys. Did you get it on line or at a store. I have been searching their site for it and can't seem to find it. Can't beat the price you paid for it, was it made out of fairly decent material? Thanks CJ
