Default New To The Site -- My First Mod's To My '06

Good Morning Forum. This is my first post, and I thought I'd let everyone critique the hell out of the 06 Cruiser that I've just started to modify. So far, I've replaced the worn/foggy headlamps with new headlamps that have the black interior. My end goal is to have a nice clean chrome/black appeal. I've added the green LED's behind the grill, as well as replaced the stock washer squirters with chrome/green LED squirters. For the interior, I installed a new Pioneer head unit that I specifically bought for it's green/black display, as well as dropped some green LED's in the vents for a subtle glow. I replaced the stock door speakers with Pioneer's.

I'd like the exterior and interior to be accented in green light, but not in an overwhelming way. I'm also stoked about painting the plastic dash pieces green (gauge bezel, stereo piece, airbag cover). I saw a real nice article on this site from CandyMan, I believe, which was very descriptive.

Looks good so far. Somehow I was expecting a black PT with chrome accents and green lights. Got it half right. Welcome to the forum. Not sure where to move your post because I know it's going to turn into a sound system thread so I guess that's the best place for it.

Ditto XtrmDC2 says! I am also looking at maybe new headlights, would like to know where you got them and the washer nozzles and what you paid for them, if you don't mind.

Also, great looking car!!!

Yeah, sorry about that Crewzin, wasn't exactly sure where to start the thread in the first place. I hope this doesn't turn into a sound system thread, I'm more into visual mods than the stereo.

I'm in Dallas, and thanks for the compliment, Xtrm. The headlamps are DEPO (or Depo), and coincidentally enough I bought them from Amazon. For $160, I think they're the best thing I've put on the Cruiser. They're ultra clean looking, and with the new Arctic White bulbs it really seemed to have changed the entire appearance of the front end.

What high school? I went to WT White, back when it was a AAAAA (5A) class school and we had the best football team in the state! Course the school was really the size of a college so it was sort of unfair. We had 125 people try out for the senior football team, can you imagine?!? One of the tests for the linebackers was they had to lift the quarterback's VW desert bug's rear end by the brush bumpers. I'm a big guy and I couldn't get it off the ground, but these guys lifted it to chest height! Damn it was funny that day at tryouts!
