    Looking good Randy

    Next you should paint the fuse relay covers and the coil packs. Take those stupid diagrams off the fuse covers, they are in your owners manual as well

    I can't tell for sure if you have done it already, but if you haven't you should polish up the a/c dryer, it looks real good when polished and very easy to do

    I have been debating on the fuse covers. The diagrams are ugly, but I have no owners manual. I had one I downloaded online but lost it when my pc crashed a few months back. I had the a/c dryer shined up but its dull now. Gotta get some more polish. The coil packs is a good idea. My motor is looking new . I am also going to paint the trans fluid stick black. I was going to change the wire loom covers to red but decided against that. I painted one of the black factory wire covers gloss black and it made it look brand new. Think I will do all of them that way.

    by the way I like your sig and how you got your mods posted

    I don't know if I would paint the wire looms or not. They will crack and peel and paint flakes will be everywhere

    I might be able to help you out with the fuse relay diagrams

    I was wondering about the paint cracking over time. I can get some new black ones from Home Depot pretty cheap. I wanted to do the whistler mod but couldnt paint the backs and then do the fronts in one day. Its my DD so cant let it sit too long. Would putting my headlights in the oven hurt the paint I have put on the backs ? That would be great if you could get me those diagrams. I was going to take some pics of them and print them off if I had to.

    I will see what I can about the diagrams.

    Did you use high temp paint on the back of the headlights? If you used >=500 then they should be fine in the oven. If you didnt use high temp, they probably wouldn't survive in there. Getting new looms would be a good idea

    You should have done the Whisper Mod when you had the lights out of the car.

    Please forgive me for a dumb question, but what's the Whistler mod? The car looks awesome. It always looks meaner to me we when the signals/markers are black or white. Orange just doesn't have the same effect.
