ahh...sorry bro-ette :D lol, take no offence. anyways, a car girl eh? now thats my kinda gal!!! does your caddy have an airbag? and also, i am thinking that your cruise controll is on the wheel too, not for sure though. if neither apply, you may be able to get away with a standard aftermarket steering wheel. not too sure where you can get one, but try a local performance shop or something.good luck, illuminaP. :cool:

hey everyone! i am getting this car done way faster than i thought. the system is in, not nothing CRAZY, but it sounds pretty damn good. i got the rims that should be here hopefully tomorrow, the flowmasters are being put on as we speak. i also went and picked out and ordered the interior. it is purple and a really light gray vinyl. and the canvas for the convertible style top is also a light grey. the interior is getting done next wednesday. the guy said it should take a good week to do. in between that i should have the rims on already. after the interior will come the paint! :) i am going to take before pics tonight and will post them up. its just brown right now with tan inside.

@PurpleDeville. Hey you that's a nice looking ride! If you don't mind me asking how much did you pay for her? It's already a head turner but it will look out of this world when you are done with your mods. You obviously have good taste to choose to go with a Caddy. You'll have to keep us updated on the project in words and with pics -k-?

One question though, why purple? Is there a story behind that?

actually i only paid $1200 for her! i was on my way home one day and saw it on the side of the road. the guy wanted 1500 for it, but i bullcrapped around and drove it off for 1200 :) why the purple..... there is no reason or story behind it except that i like that color. :p the car is actually both mine and my dads and he is stuck on the purple as well for some reason. i guess what we are trying to do is mix old school with new school basically and make it very custom and different. but the more i kick around the paint on the outside, i am not sure if i want to do it purple or white pearl with purple ghost patterns and flake in it. the problem i am running into right now is the whole matching the purples together. it's very hard and because of that i am not sure about the interior colors that i picked as well. its just seeming really hard to match. so i dont know i am getting all confused over here. i know i want purple though lol lol
