I'm actually considering picking up a v6 project car, would need some work done but would be a fun project regardless, does anyone know of a v6 stock mid pipe floating around, how to replace the door hinges on our cars and what are the factory green colors
dark highland green ? electric green, and what else (for 99-04)

Wasnt bad at all. You just peel off tint then you have to scrape the backing
off with a razor with soap in water.

Got this shorty antenna from UPR for 18 bucks. I don't really listen to the radio, I just got it because I think it looks sleek. Reminds me of the antennas from 350z's, or the mercedes cars.

I have no signal whatsoever, but I never did. I think something is unplugged on the head unit.

8.8 rear I picked up has been gutted as of last night. Carrier and axles are sitting on the bench and the housing itself is on a pair of milk crates. I have changed my mind and will be going 31 spline with 3.55's. A buddy has also found a guy to do the axle housing welding.

What did your 8.8 cost. I am wanting to build off the 7.5 but am considering
going to 8.8 just for parts availability.

Ran me $100 - Purchased off another member here on MM. Just had to drive about an hour to get it. 8.8 parts are pretty plentiful - you'll see GT guys ditching their 28 spline stuff (as i will be soon) in favor of the 31 spline for strength reasons. I don't NEED 31 spline but I'm just buffering for the future. Going the M112 route and maybe one day go beyond that. A lot of guys will tell you it's "Just good insurance" to go 8.8 as the 7.5 will not hold up to power adders or a good N/A build.
