    Thanks.
    There might be a little residue left, which you can use bug/tar remover on it and then re-wax over it.
    No holes.

    No reason to really change much.
    They don't need it.

    Most go performance over appearance when it comes to mods.

    There's a honda site that has a lot of unique rice..

    Yea, the slotted, dimpled, cross-drilled rotors, I've been through my fair share, they all seem to sound loud, vibrate, and some have glazed themselves on me, so I'm sticking with stock, there's just no reason for it unless you're pushing some really heavy numbers.

    I have sequential blinkers like the old T-Birds and Cougar had. I love those. I also rewired the tail lights and brakes to light all segments.

    I put little Fire bird emblems on the door jambs in black.

    I also added Charcoal bird emblems to the sail panels:



    Green LED in the nostrils:



    Another item I made was a brake lamp that lights up with Firebird emblem as well as the silkscreen delete on the rear panel:





    Oh, and how about leather covered arm rest:

    Yeah, but there are tasteful appearance mods and then there are not so tasteful mods.

    Yours is 100% tasteful. Nothing wrong with selecting appearance over performance....as long as it is done right.
