Ok, got me a spare hood. Now it's off to the louver press to punch a few holes in it.

Got a 2006 model hood, will be removing the front emblem.

Do hope it fits.





Layout markup for discussion of louver locations, Figuring on 5 rows of 3" louvers.

We now have louvers.



We now have the back half of the Heartthrob duals kit installed after cutting off the supplied upswept exhaust tips and adding more traditional pencil tips.





Dual Duals.



Still gotta get those bumpers painted to match my 02

Almost done. got the A/C recharged and put on the new rear tires.

Now have 205/55r17's 25" Dia on the front and 235/65r17's 29" Dia on the rear.

And yes the ABS light does come on, but the braking and operation dosen't appear to be affected yet.

I just bought a 2005 Convertible myself (dealing with electric issues at the moment, but hope to have it sorted soon).

Just how in the heck did you blue dot the rear lights (and does the fuzz have any issue with them)?
