Alas, I had to drive home. That whole "Monday morning work" thing is kind of a drag. It rained most of the way back and I didn't get many pictures.

Well... except this one:

It was a very long drive, but I hoped you enjoyed this as much as I did taking the pictures.

Another update....


When I bought the car, the door handles didn't match. The drivers side was painted orange (body color) but the passenger side looked like someone wanted to paint it...but sanded it down and forgot to finish it. It was one thing that kinda irked me about the car. I didn't notice it in the pictures of the car, when I went to buy it. When I saw it, I was...well...irked! Also the drivers side interior door handle had a patch of chrome missing from it. I ordered new handles and put them on yesterday and today. I also added some sound deadener to the inside of the doors. That quieted down the road noise some, but I'm going to pull the interior tonight after work and see if I can get more of that down.

I also added some 70mm switchback rings around the fog lights. When I bought the car, the fog lights didn't work. When I checked the bulbs, they were fine. Rather than try to seek out that solution, I bought the LED rings.

Here is the door handle that...I don't know. It looks like it was sanded down and prepped for primer and paint (which never happened).

Since I had it apart, I swapped out the interior door handle as well, The chrome was peeling. It looks bad, but the chrome shards were pretty sharp. I snagged my finger more than once.

Here are the 70mm white and amber LED switchback rings I ordered in August of 2020. I would have installed these sooner, but I misplaced them (they were in a box with interior parts for my GTO). I was looking for them, but figured they got put somewhere. I found these last week and installed them right away.

Here's something else I thought was kind of cool. I modified a triple A-Pillar gauge pod for the G5 and I also made a triple gauge pod in the center console for the GTO. It's kind of hard to see them, but here are the two pods in each car.

Those fogs are gorgeous. Can you throw some pics of those lit up? How do you have the switchback wired?
