The chameleon paint on the dash looks pretty nice, but what happened to the trunk and exhaust tips? The tips usually turn black, not brown, with age and winter.


Also, you just got me interested in painting my Si's dashboard pearl white. Thanks for the inspiration!

looking good. when I had a deer hit my 96 the body shop actually gave me the car back missing the same fender trim, saying it was no longer available. from time to time they turn up on the bay though, here's a set:

All the dents came with the car..it looks like someone had a pissed off girl friend. would like to fix them in the spring time and repaint. And the stupid car wash ate my chrome trim i was pissed when i got home and saw it.

Did you paint the winglet on the doors that flow off the dash as well? If so any pics?

They aren't hard to take off really and truthfully the only thing that i haven't been able to do is to get the passenger comfort controls off without damaging everything. Have you ever had the door panel off after that it is 3 nuts and it's off. If you wold like I can snap some pictures for you. ( I can get pics of how any interior panel mounts. I swapped my entire interior out a few months back so I have all my original parts chilling in my basement.)

Everything you need to know. In all actuality that how to makes it seem harder than it is. the only notes i have to make are two things mentioned in the wright up already. the biggest being the door pull handle DO NOT remove it, just take the screws out of it which are torx by the way. the handle is actually riveted to the door panel by the factory. and when it comes to disconnecting all the wiring you do not absolutely have to have something to prop it up, i just sat with my legs beneath it to give a bit of support and popped all the clips. shouldnt take more than 30 minutes for the pair in all honesty.
