Then i decided to shorten the antennae for a cleaner sportier look.. but if you like to listen to your radio a lot i don't recommend this

I decided to then tint my tail lights. I never did this, so it was kind of a fail

IMG_1303.jpg

IMG_1302.jpg

They turned out to be really really dark, and i got some on my trunk lid that pisses me off haha so i sanded them off and i would put on a lighter coat this time

IMG_1319.jpg

Comparison of no tint vs. my new couple layers instead of a gazillion layers haha

Then it was time for me to tackle the mids and highs of my car. Ever since installing the Pioneer double din my stock speakers went to crap! I would turn it to maybe 12 and then the speakers got all crackly and played very low, like they were all blown! Also the Alpine would just drown it out... So without having too much cash i figured replacing the stock speakers with cheap ones would be better than nothing. I had to do something! So with no experience in any of this i tackled the door panels, a couple of broken plastic clips later and its off!!!

IMG_1383.jpg

Stock speaker location is 6.5

IMG_1384.jpg

IMG_1385.jpg

I got me the cheapest brand name speakers haha some kenwood for like 20ish bucks. I dont recommend them... Yes they were louder than stock but for some reason that little tin foil thing in the middle would catch something and make a noise that was very annoying (like someone would snap their fingers in the song haha)!!!!

IMG_1387.jpg

Also replaced the rears with some Rockford Fosgate prime 6x8 ($50ish) and i had no complaints for those. Unfortunately no pics of the install cuz it was such a PITA i forgot.

Also got some Power Acoutik Tweeters for $10 and they were harsh as fuuuccckkk! I had to turn them all the way down on the EQ so they basically werent even there. Never getting a metal tweeter again haha.

So all in all this little upgrade was able to keep me satisfied for like a month or two.. It was able to play louder which was cool, but then the sub was still too powerful! So instead of turning my sub i saved my monies to do a real upgrade! But first i wanted to get some fog lights!

Nice...not a fan of all the carbon fiber stuff...its just a lil too much I think...it definetly looks better than stock though without a doubt...keep up the good work!

Yeah i have taken the gas cap off... looked like a mole haha The door pillars are very subtle which i like. Its kinda a double take kinda thing. And the eyelids i think are ehh. I like them more at night giving them that mean look, but durning the day its whatevs haha

So after researching some fog light options, i was looking at oem ones and they were like 50 a pop and i was like ehh Eff that. Then i looked at the projector ones at TRS and i almost got them but still jus too pricey, and after much thought i came to the conclusion that i dont functionally need the fog lights, i just wanted them for their looks. So after looking at a couple of options i decided to go with the LED strip where the fog lights would go.

The black part is where the oem fogs fill

Then i bought some external LED strips
