        I really like your car. I checked out your other page, nice sub setup. Also like the exhaust. Everything looks real clean.

          Nice TV/Tuner choice.. i have that same one

          It's nice 2 since it allows for 2 sets of inputs.. Audio sucks if you try piping it through that tuner box though.. It looks like you also decided to connect the audio w/o connecting it to that box..

          Nice setup!

                  Mito got it right, its VHT nightshade spray on the taillights, unfortunally he went a little too dark and it's even hard to see lit up during the day And if there's a self service gas station in jersey, I sure haven't seen it! I went to MA once and didn't realize I had to pump my own at first

                          In Winamp 2.XX you can change the size of the font in the playlist in the preferences.
                          Haven't seen a way to do this with Winamp 3.

                              Nope, NJ stations have a union, you are not allowed to pump.
