Default Pics of My BOX (her name is Betty) Newest pics on pg.4

I got my box slightly used about 2 months ago, and thanks to this site I've been doing some mods.. Check em' out and tell me what ya think!
(sorry for the pic quality, my digital camera is like 5 years old)

This was taken today... good side view.

My newly debadged hatch! ( I also took off the wiper (thanks to the DIY section)

Side shot of my shiny rims

Corner shot of my new clear corners (with silverstars)

Front Shot

My hidden sub

It can fly!

Corner

silverstar close up

Nice front Shot

The Day I got the car... notice all the emblems and rear wiper

Also the day I got it... Stock headlights



I still plan on installing some interior LEDs, some wheel well cathodes (all green), and I'm doing some accent painting on the interior with (white)... I'm probably going to paint my lip white as well... we'll see.

Hi Betty!! Tell your owner that I drive a lot also and that I like the handling better since I put in the front strut brace and lowered Old Yeller. Take good care of your owner and good luck to both of you............

Nice box! I told myself I was not going to lower my car as well. I drive about 90 miles a day. Well, I am now on S-techs and wondering why I didn't install them sooner

What method did you use to clear your corners?

I crushed em!
Retared simple! (I didn't like the idea of putting my car parts in a pre-heated oven)

I've never been into cars until I got Betty. But now I'm goin' mod crazy! The DIY's on this site are so informative, so even if you're not a huge car buff, you can get alot done with minimal cash if you've got the time.

A BCP named Betty reminds me of this:



Please please please for the love of god please don't ever do this.

i think CHPRBOX8 is referring to an exhaust yes. we here usually suggest an axle-back exhaust, not just a chrome screw-over.

You know what's awesome about that? It was 100 bux on ebay.

I can still close the lid, and carry all my gear, and when I'm parked, it doesn't look like I have a system. (theft deterrant)

I get a hook up on Blaupunkt gear, so I'm upgrading to their PRO series.... you know... when I'm not broke.
