what a day! im too tired to get drunk.
woke up at 6am, took her to get inspected since she has high miles and i just got her.
They called me an hour later and said all is fine and didn't charge me the fee. amen.
got home, thought, what can i do that wont cost a penny. popped off the stock grille.
sand, prime, paint black, clear coat, put her back on. much better.
then i replaced the mesh that wasnt on one of the grey ( ugly ) speaker grills. it was in the door sill.
then my buddy pointed out the drip rails were all weathered cracking and grey, so i basically taped off most the car, sand, prime, paint. no more whitish grey ugly look - all black.
turned around and saw my subs that been in my garage for 4 years. hmm. dusted em off, found my old amp, saw that it accepts hi inputs direct from speakers, so i removed the factory subwoofer ( it was blown ). that was a pain in the asz gettin that thing out. thank god for this forum for removing the rear deck. ran all the wires and hooked that up so now i got subs.
Here's both my ladies before i got started today
total cost = zero.
Simply used what i had in my garage.
Productive day... but i am freakin' exhausted.
