Main window switch casing was refurbished.


New rear brake light .



Refurbish Speaker covers.


Refurbish mid center console

Heat Shampooed all the seats (Only took pics of the rear seats sorry )

Also went ahead and did the rear speaker panel as well .

thanks everyone ,


And as for the fog lights im not a fan of them i'm really not a fan of lips neither to many people have the same exact look or try to be like the next guy no diss intended. The only lip i will stick on my car is the eg6 mugen lip "REAL" one that is it but for now im sticking with oem exterior , my main goal is to add little detail work to the interior and continue my engine build up .

and again thanks for compliments
