Default Winter Mod's are DONE!!! Step In!!!

Well everyone 5 & 1/2 months of winter mods are done!
First of all, a big thanks is in order for Neil (Shagster) here on the forums. He has put in a tremendous amount of hours in the man cave getting my Z ready for the show season.
Another special thanks to all the guys/gal at AutoBuffs for all the paint/airbrush work they did on my car.

The first thing was a new set of I-FORGED Daytonas 19/20 Setup wrapped in Nitto Invo's.





Tiger Shark Hood airbrushed with White TRUE FIRE flames





Painted/Tinted Tail lights





Custom Lower Door Panels with Boston PRO Series 6 1/2's and painted to match hood





The radio is a Kenwood DDX 814 with i-pod dock. The center channel
is a Kenwood 4x6.









Two JL-10 W6's and three Kenwood amps to finish the system off.
Stitched red and leather wrapped to match seats and console.
Two kenwood XR-1S's for the sub's and one Kenwood XR-4S for the inside.







I also added Sparco 4 point harnesses (Blue) and the Sparco harness bar.

The white flames look really good, as do the carbon touches on the console. Very nice work!

Oh, and the obvious question....what'd you do with the HVAC controls?

Looks very cool! I really like the blue with the CF on your console and the stitched leather on the subs. Is that center speaker CF as well? I would probably jam my finger through that.

Not feeling the tinted/painted lights at all, but for a show car the other stuff is pretty cool.

Thanks for all the positive responses guys!!!! I have always loved my car but since doing this make over I really enjoy it so much more. Neil is the man when it comes to this stuff all I told him was I wanted a center channel speaker and he designed the rest!!!!

Wow, great results. I like how the "cove" element on the lower door panels echoes the cove on the outside of the car.
