hahahha. that was my first mod too dude. haha. and i saw that a mod you wanted to make was a stereo. I don't know how much you wanna spend but i didn't want to spend alot and i bought this.. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/JVC+-+50...ustomerreviews It works well. has the AUX hook up. I've had it for 3 months or so and no complaints. It comes with a remote. and if you even wait i think the price will drop another 10 bucks. because it was 69 when i bought it i believe. but yeah, if you were lookin to only spend about 100 bucks, this thing is totally worth the money.

And welcome to the forum man. And just so you know, i wasn't making fun of you and your mod, i'm the most un mechanical guy ever, i just found it funny you listed that as a mod. haha.

:: Mod Update ::
I got a set of pilot lowprofile fog lights and took my grill off cut the grill to fit the lights right in front of the lower outside of the radiator. And found that the lower conector bolts that hold the radiator in place were just flapping in the wind (Rusted right to nutten) the only thing holding my radiator in place was one bolt up top and the hose's. So I cut up and primed some angle iron and made a new mount and bolted to a good part of the frame. Also gave her a flush and fill while I had it ripped apart making the frame.



Will be taking a nighttime pic with lights all on when it get's dark..


The next job can be found here Parking Break Broken ( Help )

Once I get that taken care of It's Music time !
My bank can't handle more then one upgrade/fix at a time right now. But very good find and thanx for the info.
