I love the way that tow bar looks installed! It just adds something...

I love the carpet in the luggage compartment. Way better than bare plastic. I'm going to look into doing the same thing in my cars.

Very nice, I have Billy's 2/3 nose with same scanner bar and brennons electronics. Once the weather breaks I will start the conversion or should I say have a garage do it for me. I will be following your progress closley as it seems that we are both at the same stage in this.

okay so today worked on my car for a bit. this KR nose is a real pita to install, had to cut about half inch on both ends of the impact bar. and i had to cut off part of the bottom lip of the impact bar because the bumper kept catching it. fiberglass cant flex so it was a big time pitta. i had 3 different test fits today...each test fit is not bolted in

Test fit 1:

test fit # 2
