    vizual mods update: shady

    This is what she looked like a few years back..

    then I painted the grille But it started to chip a few months after i painted it so wanted to give Plati-Dip a try-- old look:


    New:::::
    I finally got some free time and did a few mods.

    A buddy with a e46 M3 hooked me up with the contact info for Dallas Steering wheel.. did a group buy and got 10% off

    the Black Alcantara, silver stitching with 1/16 padding and its perfect IMO, i wouldn't go any thicker. The wheel was already pretty big and i didnt want it to stick out to much. The quality is top notch and worth the money to me.

    I think it looks similar to the swayyyde OEM V2 wheel. Just pulled the battery terminal, let it sit while i was painting the front and then did the swap in less then 10mins. broke the spindle nut loose. banged on the while 2-3 times. Didn't need a steeringwheel puller at all. The wheel is not pressed on. You cant mess up the install either. the splines only line up one way. one of the easiest mods i have ever done.




    I may go back to the Chrome Cadillac Crest and coat of arms. don't know yet.. Looking for some feed back..
    I'm also looking for a used Air deflector to complete the look. don't feel like payin $120 for a rubber strip so its gone for now



    cardboard to protect the radiator. nothing special needs to be done for prep. just needs to be clean and dry.. if you mess up it peels right off

    the Black Alcantara matches the seats well in person.

    Go with the 1/8" padding if you want it thicker. The 1/16" is a hair thicker than stock.
