Got around to cleaning her up a little bit today and took a few pics with my iPhone. I just need some new wheels, springs, tint my tails/side markers and eventually get a GT bumper and I think I'll be satisfied :).

Oh trust me, once you start, you'll never stop... be careful because you will get addicted to modifying and its an expensive habit.

Oh I've already found that out and I've only dropped just short of $1000 on it so far. I'm saving the expensive stuff for last lol. That's just what I wanna do to the exterior though, I'm waiting a while before I do the interior.

Ya it's nice for a bit but then you hit that wall where it goes from $10 here, $20 there to $250 for this mod and then $500 for the next one then $1000 for the next and then it get kinda depressing yet exciting at the same time lol.

Thanks, I love my high rise. I got it for $110 (used) shipped to my door from Schram Auto but it came in great condition. Just had to buy some 3M trim tape for the bases of the wing.

^ So the spolier is just stuck on with 3M tape :S Is that the normal process of installing a high rise spolier?

There's also 2 bolts that attach it to the trunk lid. The 3M tape is used as an adhesive and helps prevent water from leaking into your trunk. If you look at your low rise you'll see the adhesive between the wing and the trunk lid, it creates a small space so it's not paint against paint.

Have you tried steam cleaning? I really enjoyed doing auto detailing with steamer recently found a great tutorial Best car cleaning steamer | How to choose auto detailing steamer and I really liked the ending car detailing done with steam. The advantages of steam cleaning are many: for example, steam disinfects well, and it is also safe for leather, plastic, vinyl coatings, paint, and various metals.
