did somebody say red gtg?

Doin it slow and steady with small mods, it seems like your keepin it stock, but if you keep on buying small things every now and then, it adds up alot quicker thant u think, but it's fun, and people can spot your car out in a line, evern if they're all the same color. :)

Pics from dent removal day
Yay dent removal!!! I wanted to do that to chester's doors really badly, but i never got around to it.

Yeah, I was looking for pictures of red bugs. I found yours. It kind of felt like I was going on a little journey watching you mod it out. Hehe. I just bought my red 2002 not even a month ago. I LOVE it.
You might like my red bug thread too. It just doesnt have a happy ending. But the first 6 pages are good. :D
awesome next mod. those tips would look stellar sticking out under a kamei rear valence. :wink:
Holy cow. That red leather looks awesome. Good Job. :goodjob:
I think the charge pipe. But i cant remeber if that was the one before or after the intercooler.

Thank you. I've been getting down to the meat of the mods over the winter :devil: It's fun to mod, cosmetic or performance, because there's so many options and so much to do to make your NB unique!
I can't take all this talk about super cool mods without photos. I wanna see pepper undressed and showing of her new goodies.
Wow, I love the new look of Pepper!

You need a little black on the back though. *wink*

Jimmy crack corn and I don't care
so why did you mention him?
I :heart: Pepper!
Go for an O-Bar and TIP!!!
i like the ts ones alot more than the color concept ones. The whole shebang of colored door panels and everything looks great, but it's too much color for me. Especially if you have other interior pieces painted, then it's way too much interior color. But thats just my opinion.

Do you have a hi-res of this pic?
GINA said:
I have one that's 1024x768, do want?
cool beans gina. i hope the dash and center console dont look too outta place if you put the cc panels on.
