I have 195,0000 miles on the car now, and I will keep it for ever.  My son is already looking forward to driving it.  However it will be put in Valet mode and have the rear seats removed before I had over the keys.

Nice ride Randy!  When do we get to meet you and the sled?

I just painted my votex spoiler, but it was not an exact match, so I am going to have it professionaly done later when I actually have the cashish.  I bought it from a guy in the springs with a Blue Anthracite B5, so I had to do something with the color for now.

Also, I almost got the same wheels as you, but ended up with mine, which are pretty similar.


I plan to be at the GTG on the 18th & 19th with my dollar bills for the titty-bar. :wink:  I am looking forward to meeting the rest of the group and have a couple of cold one's.

So I “frosted” my tail lights this past weekend.  I do not have any pictures of them yet, but as soon as I do I will post them.

FYI – I decided not to tint them, as I wanted the color to match the car.  So I used the tinting process Dub uses, but with primer and clear coat.  It does not match perfectly, but I will let it go for a while to decide if I really like it.  If I do I will re-do it in the spring for a perfect match.

That sounds pretty cool!   You have any pics?
