This page will outline the tweaks and changes to the car, to make driving a little nicer and/or make other drivers look twice and/or impress the hell out of whoever is in the passenger seat. Performance modifications and routine maintenance items are on my Repairs & Mods page.
Blaupunkt MP3000 stereo
Driver's left foot dead pedal
Tinted reverse lights
Painted rear fascia trim
Sylvania Silverstar headlight bulbs
Maglite mount on decklid
Approximate total = $500
Aiwa CDRW deck: JUNK! Skipped like a mofo.
Archive - stuff done to my old (wrecked) Vic
15-Mar-2003 - Picked up some mounting brackets for my D-cell Maglite and attached them to the underside of the decklid. 100% better than having that thing rolling around in the trunk. Pic
15-Mar-2003 - Sylvania Silverstar headlight bulbs (9007ST) installed. $25 each at Murrays, light appears brighter and whiter as advertised.
2-Feb-2003 - Rear end blackout. Removed taillights and rear fascia from car, painted the chrome strips (sanded, primed, painted, clear-coated), and sprayed some Nite-Shade into the reverse light lenses for a real Marauder-clone look. See pics page...
20-Jan-2003 - Had Buzz Off Auto put some tint on my car. 35% on the front windows and 20% from the B-pillar back. Got it done for $242 out-the-door. See pics page...
??-Jan-2003 - Put in a driver's left foot dead pedal. Grabbed it out of my old (wrecked) car and had it installed within a half hour. It works wonders for driver comfort, mine was purchased at mustangparts.com but I think they are out of stock.
2-Jan-2003 - Installed Blaupunkt MP3000 CD receiver which plays MP3's and WMA's burned onto CDR/CDRW's. It is better protected against skipping than my old Aiwa CDC-X507M. I used a Scosche FD-1280 install kit and FD16 universal connector. Total cost about $210.
22-Dec-2002 - Customized dashboard by covering woodgrain with carbon fiber applique and relocating the TRAC OFF button to a more convenient location to the left of the clock. See pics page...
