It was put together from various parts. The pipe was from a cheap eBay CAI, the filter is a Spectra, and the air dam was something forum member, Myckee, sent me. I refinished the air dam with crinkle paint and vinyl edging. The crankcase vent was from Advance auto, and the catch can was a modded inline air filter from Harbor Freight. Lots of different stuff but it turned out pretty nice.

Ok, out in the garage working away on my Conv.

Installed a factory radio wi/MP3 mod.



Decided to do spruce up the brake calipers like the tuners do. Also did a little rust repair on the rocker panels.









Done for the day. Still waiting on Dual exhaust and new American Racing Torque-Thrust M Antracite Wheels as well as new MF Switch and LED dast lights.





Oh I also bought 2 cans of Duplicolor Dark Charcol Bumper Paint. Planning on making my 05 Conv an 02 Conv. to match my wagon.

I love those wheels!! I have a Bassani dual exhaust on mine (came with it) and it is LOUD. I am looking for ways to quiet it down a bit. I like it to be cool sounding, but NOT wake up the neighbors when I go to work, or burn out my ears on a long trip.

Today I replaced the MF switch with a new one from Rockauto.com and got my fog lights working when I want them to and not working when I don't want them to.





Also replaced rear taillight bulbs with Superbrightleds.com LED's. Looks great.



Oh, and technically replacing the switch is a snap, but figuring out how to and actually disconnecting the wire connector plug was a bitch.

Well those wheels and tires will be available for sale soon.

Been figuring on Craigslisting them since shipping would be a bit much.

The tires seem to be nearly new, havin't measured tread depth, but it appears to be alot.

I'm now considering getting a spare hood and having it louvered.

What kind of wheels are they? They *kinda* look like BBS knockoffs of some sort.

I don't have a clue. They are 17x8" and appear to be one piece aluminum.

The tires are Toyo 205-50x17 Proxes4Plus.

That's kinda the style I'm looking for I'd buy them but shipping would kill me. I'm in Vancouver, Canada. Shipping to WA would still probably break my wallet!
