Thanks for the good words guys. I'll try to answer as many questions as I can when they're posted. After christmas I'll be able to take a few more pictures of whatever you guys want to see.

The body kit is a Kaminari fiberglass hood, Tsunami T2000 front bumper & Xenon side skirts & rear bumper

The tranny swap ended up costing me about $900, but that was with me & a buddy doing the work. Most quotes I got for it for a shop to do it were in the $1200 to $1400 range.

Thanks again,
Ken

The seats are Corbeau Targa RS's black on black. They're really comfy but they don't have vinyl pads on the corners so they're starting to wear out just a little bit on the drivers side.

That pic actually had a lot of the interior already dyed black. That was my first attempt at it & it didn't look that good in person.

The armrest is covered with thick vinyl that I got from a friend. The stuff is actually used to cover seats on minibikes, works great though. All you need to do it is take off the armrest cover & take it all apart, get some vinyl of your choice at a fabric store, & some 3M spray adhesive. I've tried using a lot of different spray glues & the 3M stuff works the best by far. Once the armrest is apart start wrapping & folding the vinyl over the stock one & reassemble it.

I'm glad to see that you'd still want a go at it. I hate it when people give up on anything before they try. Considering how often I break things on my car you'd have some pretty good odds that it would break during a race LOL. I'm working on the whole reliability thing over the winther though. This month the cooling system is getting replaced. WHOOHOO!!! :D:D:D
