i got some of mine done...it's about 3/4 done. i have 2 doors and the glove box left to do. i have 2 doors, dashboard, center console, trim, vents, pillars, and underneath the steer wheel all sanded and painted. check it out...

Here's the passenger door, I just need to carbon fiber wrap the arm rest.


This is a shitty one of the back door. Sry about how small it is but u get the idea...


Center Console


Close Up on door handle


Another Shitty one of pedals and under the steering wheel


I have more in my gallery, I'm going to be posting more up when I get a chance. Also, I should have my custom dual gauge pod pictures! I'm going to be doing this project soon. It's going to be my first experience with fiber glass...sooo I hope it goes well. It should look **** when it's done!

You can get white face gauges for cheaper than 25 dollars if you keep an eye out for a cluster from a mid model Pontiac G5. Some of them came factory with pale silver or white faced gauges depending on your color perception. Thats what I did. The faces are directly interchangeable and it's real easy, about an hour if ya got the stuff to work with. They glow red at night though, so the hvac controls don't match.......but if you have a kenwood dvd player they can be made to glow red, blue, or green. Hvac controls from a g5 should interchange and fix this but add cost.

thats ur opinion, but who asked you? lol. n its a 4 dr btw. the seat covers i bought because they r comfy and cushion my back. where r pics of ur car? lemme see some of ur work u've done. one door, takes me about 14-16 hours to do. i put the skull because i thought it might look cool, n i like it.

my point exactly. i think it looks good, and its something unique. n how is a jester skull ricer? thats what i wanna know? lol. its not a vinyl along the side of my car, or an erector set wing? lol. it doesn't add 10000whp. lol. n also, nobody even knows its there unless they open my door. i just thought it wud look cool. n i think i'm gonna buy white LEDS and put them where the eyes are. call it ricer if u will, but i bet u it's 100% original. bank on it.

I've seen some people "dust" the rear-tails with black spray paint. I was just wondering how to do these kinds of things such as the heads/tails and i've never heard about the bowties? Thanks in advance!
