Default well i am happy

well I found out yesterday that my break light on the right finally broke the rest of the way. what I mean is the screws that go threw the body to be mounted.

found out today the 6th gen lights work in the back but ironically not the head light lenses sad sad sad.

also I found the trunk strak thing when you go to close it grab that not the trunk its self to close it I am happy on that.

not a big fan on lets mess up the paint as much as possible guy. yeay I am getting it to where I like it.

now it will be the steering wheel the peal of death is happing to it and I cant stand that I just have to find that link here on where some have put on a newer wheel
a leather one not that hard rubber funky one. I don't mind if I have the hard rubber center I think it would give it character on the interior

Default these are what

these are what I was talking about I was still a little surprised that the 6th gen tail lights worked and I never had the other two so bonus 40 total at the salvage yard the lenses are new. so is the net the handle is from another 07 monte.

yes I know the tail light is the out side not interior like the net and the handle for the trunk it was three things for 40 dallars at the salvage yard. those lenses are new in excellent condition. I am surprised no one got them before I did and I am really happy.

when I seen them on the car in the yard I was caught off guard. because there was nothing wrong with the body on it either I was like. man that person put a lot of love in the car but some thing had to happen for it to go there. but I was dibbs mine now going on my car now. 6th gen tail lights look really good on grey and dark models like mine. that handle I was looking for a really long time. no one seemed to have one and got that as well as that net to try to keep my trunk neat and straight
