PostSubject: New owner and lovin it!!! (pics)   Updated Pics of my 97 with Bra and Chrome Tips EmptyThu Jul 12, 2007 9:17 pm

I have had my eye on one of these for quite a while now, but everyone that I've seen has been out of my budget. Finally I found a reasonably priced one (not in my wife's opinion) with low mileage and with all service records from day one.

I love it, and will for a long time to come.

Here is my new BABY!



Okay, how do I add pictures???

I always do it. Its too easy for someone to pay some site $50 to get all your information from your plate. Not saying a member from here would do it but anyone can see it.

looks good. BUT, on of those (second) shots, the rag top looks like a bad tupee. lol
I like the color though. Very nice body.

You know what?
I think it looks as good as I thought it would with the bra. It came with those stupid looking round things on the (top) front like many bras do, but I took those off.
It compliments the rag top. Next step is to have the vamous "R" symbol embroidered on the front of the bra.
One thing I don't like is the single chrome tips, I'm already in the process of getting dual tips on either side.
Hope you like!?! I do!?!

agree i second jacks opinion
i think the tips would look better if they were not round or if they were bigger diameter.

Thanks for the tip, I think I'll do just that. They really do need something done to them. Just a curiosity, did you install the remote start yourself? Is it hard to do?
(I noticed that in your signature).

I'm going to look into that too.
Living in Canada, it comes in handy in the winter. (and summer sometimes for the A/C)

Thanks

very clean looking, I like it.

I always like the bras on cars...but functionally they kinda dont make sense. Yea, they protect the front, but if you take it off a few seasons later then you can tell a paint/fade/scratch quality difference. I had one on a previous vehicle, just because I bought it with it. But I liked it.

John...I see lots of gravel...even a mound of it in the backround.
Are there gravel roads in your area...thus the bra?
