So I finally got my air suspension put in. Let me tell you, it was a pain in the @ss! It took me quite awhile but the end result is well worth it. As I was f... Show moreinishing it up I had one of my friends detail it so it would look new again. So here's some pics of the outcome.
Here's a pic all te way inflated front & back

This is just a close up so you can see how good the detail came out.

First thing I had ordered were the diamond clear headlights so as soon as they came in I put them in. Unfortunatly the corner lights were on back order so th... Show moreey didn't arrive for another couple weeks but they looked great when I got them in This is the engine compartment. It is mostly stock except for the IPD engine stabilizer mount in blue. I also polished out the fuel rail cover a bit & installed a K&N filter I couldn't take the wood grain finish for very long so I ripped it out & put in some custom painted silver ones. At the same time I ripped out the factory deck & installed my pioneer 7" indash widescreen monitor with 5.1 channel surround sound. It also plays DVD's & CD's Heres the rear cargo area with the sub box installed This is the back of the box where I have the Alpine amp & Stinger 1 farad capacitor Next to go was the stock exhaust, it begs for a dual outlet exhaust with an extra opening on the left side of the bumper. I ended up going with a dual flowmaster mufflers I was getting a little to comfortable with the stock ride so I quickly installed some IPD lowering springs. Unfortunatly the rear did not lower because of the Nivomat self leveling shocks. The car didn't come with a rear roof spoiler so I picked one up from the dealer & had a buddy paint it. It makes a tremendous difference in apperance The stock rims were nice but way too small so I put on some 18" Quantum Tek S-05 rims. At the same time I installed my slotted rotors from IPD & put on some center caps from a 40 series volvo After being on backorder for about a month, the black mesh grille from IPD was still not in so I went with the silver one instead. I actually like the silver one more now that I have it. The president of my car club has his own tint shop so my next step was to get the windows tinted. I ended up going with 5% black with an orange tribal design with a layer of chrome tint behind it to make it reflective. After about a month of searching I gave up and just bought regular shocks and modified the bottom mounts for the shocks to accept the new ones The front end looked a little awkward with a silver grill & black bumper inserts so I custom made some silver ones to clean it up a little After hearing complaints about rims in the living room I decided to throw my spare rim in the spare tire compartment Show Less
