Excellent list.

I want that steering wheel too.:yum:

I am looking forward to seeing those wheels mounted on your car.

Have you considered or researched leather interior upgrade options?

Are you going to tint the windows?

Thank you! :)

As for tinting I probably will as the Florida sun is brutal all year round. I don't want anything too dark but nothing too lite. I haven't had a tinted car in some time so I'm looking forward to it.

I hadn't had a car tinted in a few years as well.

If you didn't already know, they now make window tinting with ceramic particles these days. No signal lose due to metal particles and high infrared blocking qualities.

I went with a Llumar product called CTX 40 (there are other brands with same technology). It rejects heat very well.
No too dark not too light. I got used to it and started appreciating it very quickly in the southeast's sun.

OMg.....please resize the 3 largest pictures. I have a widescreen display and I still have to scroll way off the side of the screen! Suggested max size is 15x15" or 1000 pixels wide. You can host the pictures in your albums.
