Interior:
First off, a huge shoutout to Eastbeach. He introduced me to this trim, and we both love it.
Showing off a little of the brushed aluminum trim: For this, I used chrome trim from Discount Auto Parts, sanded it down in the same direction carefully.


More trim: (Also pictured, is my foglight controller. Top is the cycle for 7 colors, middle is power, and bottom is for fog lights themselves.)


More trim, around speakers:


First sub box, blew it twice. Has since been rebuilt, looking to move it more forward (maybe center console)?


Trunk Soundproofing: I was cheap, and bought a knock off home depot brand. I wouldn't recommend it if you can afford Second Skin/Dynamat/Anything else, but for less than $100, I did all 5 doors and my entire trunk with a roll to spare. It did the job though!


Under the drivers seat is my sub amp, its a PPI 600.2 phantom? I think. Its a great little amp, it runs a little hot, but it feeds the TC beautifully.


Center Dash, this is probably my most favorite part. Pioneer 2400BT, and carbon fiber wrap.


Dome Lights, the picture is rather old. Haven't had those subs for about a year and a half now.


Suede interior, did the work myself, but the headliner had to be redone by a professional due to inferior glue:

Exterior:

Side shot after slamming it, I've since lowered the front another inch:



Magnaflow exhaust (30" 2in2out muffler, running 2 2' tips angled out)


Exhaust Video:

Beep Beep! I'm a Jeep!


Went through hell, but it paid off. Imported a 2008 European bumper into the US!


Ordered the OEM grill to fit the euro bumper, originally I redid the mesh for the euro, but it just didn't look nearly as clean.


Brightening up the streets, even during the day (Pre-Euro Bumper):


Got some new wheels! XXR 530s in 19x8.75:


One of a kind custom headlights (made by Transformalights find him on FB!)


Fog Lights One of the 7 colors, also my avatar:


Vent Visors!

Under the hood:

Nothing to exciting here, its not like I dropped a GT-R engine in it or anything.
Big 3 wiring(I actually only did 2/3. I didn't do alternator, as its not easy to get to.)


Amp wiring, If I recall its 8 gauge. I have the 0 gauge to redo it, but its really not worth it. I don't get dims, and it was a pain to run in the first place!
Also, you can see one of my HID ballasts. The wiring jobs are not professional by any means. I just made sure nothing would mess with them, and tacked them on.

Creation's Build Thread (Mild)

Awesome! You're my kind of car guy! Focus on the interior and lighting first haha I've never really been into speakers and head units but I'm all for a quiet and good sounding ride! Eventually I'd like to sound proof everything but that'll be a whole since I don't wanna break my interior plastic crap haha

I look forward to more mods Creation!!!

Re: Creation's Build Thread (Mild)

I look forward to more mods aswell, but the money is just not here. College is a endless money pit. I'd love to lower it, and throw new rims on but the money was used elsewhere. Computers, desk, chair, etc. They used all of the money I had saved.

Re: Creation's Build Thread (Mild)

Thanks guys. Nothing to crazy, but its coming together. Next maybe new door speakers. Beat the RF's to a pulp but they are still going. Maybe I'm just searching for something to do...

Re: Creation's Build Thread (Mild)

I don't have the money to fuel an offroad addicition. The speakers would be as a trade for a mini ipad I won at a christmas party. Silly people. I dislike apple!

Re: Creation's Build Thread (Mild)

But other than my jeep, I'm addicted to my computer desk. So I'm not sure, if I want speakers for the car or jeep. Maybe both. I had originally wanted some for christmas but I don't recall what they were. Ill have to dig up a thread and recall them.

Re: Creation's Build Thread (Mild)

Considering my custom center console idea again. With this, I would bring my sub up to the front. Either have to downfiring , or have it upfiring sort of underneath the shifting column. Ill have to hack out some drawings later.
