Eibach lowering springs

Goodyear Assurance Triple Treds, 205/55R16

Koenig Traction rims

Intrepid:

  • 3.2 or 3.5 V6 conversion (this will happen one way or another)
  • Cold Air Intake
  • Dual Exhaust
  • Have it repainted in a deeper hue of blue
  • Fix my trunk light
  • Considered but undecided on a light window tint
  • set of 18" Avenger alloys on lower profile tires
  • set of Intrepid 16" double spoke alloys for winter tires
  • 300M black leather seating (with folding rear seat)
  • automatic climate control
  • automatic headlamps
  • D.I.C.
  • 6-disc CD in-dash changer
  • 2nd AUX jack (mounts in the center console)
  • 300M/LHS chrome interior door handles and switches
  • Have undercoated
  • Find some sort of shifter knob that will fit mine that's black leather with chrome accents.
  • Have toyed with the idea of an aluminum dash kit
  • Have toyed with the idea of projector headlights
  • Have toyed with the idea of the 300M's factory NAV system (but it's probably archaic).
  • Have toyed with the idea of the ES/R/T lower fascia (fog light version)

Prizm

  • Have trunk properly sealed
  • New trunk liner
  • Repaint, probably same color
  • Have Undercoated
  • LSi door panels
  • Properly mount the folding rear seat (need a welder)
  • 16" wheels...I'm not sure how many spokes
  • Stainless exhaust Tip
  • New headliner

The Buick is going to be donked.

The other cars are already tinted and tuned. The Prius could use a sunroof.

You've all heard the plans for the Camino, but other than that, I don't plan any mods.

The truck is fine like it is.

I just want the Wagon and Mothertruck completed.

And the Jag needs a new home.

Buick- finish it. Too many things to list.

2500HD - replace the front bumper (have one), put bed rail covers on, replace tailgate edging, fabricate a 'long things' rack for one side of the bed, so I can carry circa 16' trim/lumber, etc.

I'd like to have my windows tinted just enough to help keep the cabin cooler during the summer. That, and shine the exhaust tips up, since they've been looking dull lately.

I have a bed extender that mounts to my trailer hitch for that...it's pretty handy. Link

Seen 'em, but don't think so. I already have a 20-foot long truck... hanging another non-articulated 9.5' out the rear brings it up to 30 feet. Far too congested here in Jersey for that, plus you can't see it while driving !

I once carried a 14' long steel frame in the 6.5' bed of my HD- tailgate up, 6.5' hanging over the bumper, front end weighted down, no problems.

What exactly do you like about it, BP? I assume you use it very infrequently ?

I'd prefer to have really long stuff up in the air above the roof- no damage risk, no decreased mobility.

No more modding for me until my vehicles have no payments. But if money wasn't a factor:

Headers

Corsa Exhaust

New rims

Twin turbos

Upgrade suspension all around

600hp to the wheels sounds very fun
