Well she got a full detail yesterday and man what a difference.

Those car lot prep guys must use a mop and bucket to apply armor-all.:roll:

I'm excited to see what you're gonna do with this one! I love your SC. You've got 2 gorgeous colored Es on your hands.

Thanks Malted!

Wife is having to hold me back already. (my voice of reason)
Have to finish up the projects on the Rootbeer float first, but already ordered a bunch of goodies for the Kiwi so I can get started ASAP!

Well, between work, and Rootbeer projects I did get a little time with our Kiwi.

First, I now have all the audio upgrades acquired and will be starting on that project soon.

But in the mean time, the center console was pretty trashed with wear and paint gouges. I bought a new center and shift trim ring to just replace it...but you know I don't roll like that.

Pictures shortly;-)

Uh oh.....he's at it again:-D think you should paint the trim around the trans shifter black.....but just my opinion
What can I say? I have a modding problem. :grin:

Yah, not sure if I love it yet, painted it to match the vents. I like your idea, we'll see....;-)
