    I didn't wanna get to ricey with my interior so I went subtle with natural interior colors like silver and black. Hell my whole interior WAS grey and kinda boring. Now it looks nice and everyone that gets in my car or sees the inside says " whoa did you do this"? I really like it.

    Does anyone here like the Red colored window tint or should I just go with Mirror tint?

    I am thinking the mirrored or just freakin Dark Black.

    Also I want a nice shift knob to go with the inside style....nothing to Gawdy but functional and tasteful.

    I have :dsm: logo's on all my speaker grilles, the cupholder and ashtray lid painted to match the rest.

    yes it is paint. I painstakingly removed EVERYTHING piece by piece and thoroughly washed and cleaned everysingle little piece, then wiped the indiviual pieces down with rubbing alcohol (after a door handle cup orange peeled hella bad from skin oils) and gave each piece about 3 coats. It is interior paint if that helps. it is holding up quite well after about 5 months. No chips or anything, no peeling. Just looking to do more. I like to stay busy.

    Hell I know what I need:

    I need some white face gauges next. But feel free to give me suggestions. Remember this is my wifes car so I can't go ALL wild and put gauges on everything in every knook and cranny. But I like alot of your cars interiors. Please feel free to ask me anything or give me any advice you may have. Thanks

    Looks great. Do you have any other angle pics? Like maybe one looking in the from the drviers door looking at the dash and passenger door? I've been trying to come up with a good idea for my interior and I really like what you did.

    Looks good.

    For the tinting, just stick to black. Mirror and red tint look cheesy IMO. Especially the red tint...

    1. place A-pillar into place with 3M tape
    2. Press boost gauge in firmly
    3. If the fitting is tight, lightly tap with ball peen hammer
    4. If the fitting is still a bit to tight, use a ball joint separator and shot peen hammer until what is left of the facing is flush with the gauge pod.
    5. Reinstall A-Pillar

    Hehe just kidding it is an awesome color scheme. Very original.

    I really like your car a5ian5murf. Looks good, I did mine in red but not as much as you did. I couldn't get the piece off where the shifter goes.

    thanks for all the remarks guy's... yeah stormtroopers, that's one thing i've never heard before, but what i have heard all the time is it's bright as #@%#@%#@%#@%... and yes, when it's sunny, it's brighter in my car then outside... and sometimes at night, when you park it, and there's a lamp post near or far, when you walk away, it makes you think "did i leave my lights open inside?" but you get use to it. that's not the only thing white in my car, my panels on the door are white, you know where the window switch and everything is? and also the front tweeter speaker crap in front are white, and the long thing from there to the top of the door is white, and in the back since im gutted the only thing white back there is the panel middle top, then the panel with the speaker mesh/fabric are white as well. i like it so far, i cleaned them good, sanded down anything i dont like to see, used primer, then bought plastikote. need plastikote over here, get's hotter then your mother over here, you dont want that sh1t to crack on you!!!

    peace

    ps. this forum isnt bad, im use to going to dsmtalk to post. :dsm:

    hey famousgunner, i did this a while back so i dont remember where all the screws where, i believe it was:

    two in the front underneath the removable trim guard thingy

    take off the shifter

    take out the ash tray, theres one screw in there

    then you can only lift it up so far, because there are the alarm (if you have one) and

    ash tray light, and cigarette lighter harness or connectors hooked up to the unit. just

    disconnect them, and im pretty sure it all comes out, ready to do anything you like... hope this helped

    peace

    i accidently dropped the mofo when I was installing it. It freaking sucked. $50 for the boost gauge dropping it right out of the box......Priceless.

    No really.

    It is 10 lb. vac. off, and 5 psi boost off. I know because I had a cheaply made boost gauge register 14-15 psi, then install that one and I "got" 10-11 psi.


    This was all before my Hallman MBC came in, so I am running more boost now, but on a INaccurate gauge temporarily.

    I have to repeal one of my last statements in my last post:

    That is NOT interior paint. I was in the store where I bought it the other day and IT IS exterior touch up paint. Metallic silver -107 and metallic Black. You really can't see any of the "metallic" in the black, but in the silver it looks good.


    No I will not do another angle shot from the drivers side to the passenger side, my air bag cover is peeliing up on the corners and it would be embarrasing to show until I get THAT fixed too.

    notice how many flames I got about the boost gauge, Don't particualrly wanna hear may more, I work too hard on this car., and it is damn rewarding. I just installed my new SAFC today. Ooooo-boy!!!!

    Got my injectors the other day too, and my ACT 2600, and my Walbro 190, and my 1-2 and 3-4 shift forks, so mid-high 12's here I come......as I get time and motivation to install and tune it all.

    Best of luck on all your projects, I'll try and keep you all updated.

    I want to do something to my interior, and the silver is definately nice.

    I took a regular minella folder and hand drew a Diamond Star. then cut out just the diamonds. The held the folder over the speakergrille and centered it, then ran the silver across it a few times. I did a four speaker grilles. Doors, and rear panels. I like it. Looks pretty sweet.

    By the way ALL......

    i got a new Autometer ultra-lite that I DIDN'T CHEW ON!!!

    hehe.

    Give you all updates soon.
