The time is getting close for me to decide (finally) what mods will defo be going onto/into the car.

So far ive decided on:

35mm drop.

17"RSGT/BSA alloys

Front Bumper de/badged.

Twin twin porsche exhaust.

Indicators/Spotlights to black.

So i was thinkin of a full red leather retrim to finish it off. Basically i dont thin theres anything styling wise id like to do after these mods as i want to keep it kind of subtle.

The next mods will be performance.

But to the point, the re-trim is costing 1200 and is for front/back seats, door cards, dash insert (shelf on TJs) and clock housing. (will be spraying parts of the centra console the same black as the outside.

Does anyone think thats to much???

In all il be spending close to 2800 this/next month(s), does anyone think this is silly as its moolah i wont ever get back? Or do you think i should go for it? i know which way im kind of leaning.

Anyone recommend some trim experts??

:lol: pr0stituting my white ass on the street :lol:

na, its money from the TA/Credit Union etc,

The other half(ish) of the 5K is going to my girlfriend/house.

I think because it is so much cash that why im worried.

So unsure at the mo if its worth this mega splurge.

If you can get in contact with Rooneys agent you might have a sale.
