I have a 2000 v6 silver vert that I've spent some money resurecting from the pits of despair. I have no intention of dumping performance mods into this car. Just want a nice comfortable ride that's clean and looks really good. It will be my daily driver.
I've replaced and taken care of all the needed mechanical issues, replaced the tires, the top, and all the carpeting. I also replaced the stupid split dash piece with a 2001 dash piece and installed a double din in dash to go with the $4000 I've spent in audio. I just recently purchased a 2001 center console to replace the existing one. I hate those cup holders! RAWR! I'm having the interior painted/dyed to be all black. The current gray leather seats are torn up and need to go.
So here are some questions for you guys. If you have any pictures, experiences, or thoughts to share.
I'm thinking about going with these seats and matching rear seat material.
Corbeau: GTS II
I'm not a fan of leather, have a 5 year old, and live in Oregon where it's always raining. Are suede seats really hard to keep up with? I can't decide between all black cloth or black & grey suede.
I've also been looking at the pollished billet interior mods from AM. It feels like a lot of those have a cheap feel though or will look really cheap if I do too much of it. I'm sold on the cup holder, shifter boot bezel, shifter knob, pedals, ebrake, door stills, door lock pins, and door handles. What do you guys think about the window and door lock controls or cruise control billet pieces? Cheesy or too much?
I've also been looking at the speedhut gauges in a black background, white lettering, and blue glow. I've read that I can replace the LED lights in the AC console to match the blue gauge lighting. I hate the green lights!
I think that does it for the interior unless you guys have more suggestions.
As for the exterior the car has really nice chrome rims with the Pony logo which I really like. They have a few chips though. Can the chrome be restored or fixed? I don't know...
It also has the black decals and spoiler now. I love the GT side scoops and hood scoops and planned on buying those depending on your guys's thoughts. I've also always liked the Roush front and rear fascia with side exhaust. Not sure how much of a hassle that would be though.
Then there is the small stuff, billet fuel door, short antenna, and honeycomb rear panel.
Let me know what you guys think about any of this stuff. I don't mind spending the money but definately dont want to spend it then figure out everyone else who has got it hated it for some reason.
