How in the world did you post these pics and no one commented on them? Did you have them closed or hidden in the graveyard or something? ;)


Antoine, if there was ever a NB that I would travel about 2300 miles to steal, it definitely would be Marvin. (That is a compliment, not a threat!;) ) :roflmao:

Marvin is one of the greatest NB's out there. (I put you in the company of the like of Siren, Wink (SukhoiDave's), Freaky, and other's!) You have done a fantastic job! :goodjob: :wave3:

Really like your nb-lot of detail went into the interior & external mods

Also i would like to thank you for the "How to's"- i have used them a lot. Again thank you.

You have a lot of knowledge of different kits-these after market body kits and bumpers can get expensive with shipping-i find one i want and you have to order from afar-shipping charges are as much or more than kit. Got any suggestions-i would like to have rsi look or possibly votex.

Oooh!

Such nice comments!
I've been so busy with the new baby that I hadn't checked in on this thread...feel like I have been neglecting little Marvin, but he understands.

He did get to spend some quality time with me on Sunday when I popped off half his interior panels and installed my new Sirius Sporster Replay (once again ripping of Pete and his setup).

He did get some good toys for Christmas...and since we paid him off early (Nov. I think) we felt we needed to have some reference guides to keep him alive. I got VagCom working and also the Bentley CD Rom to help figure out what is making him sick.

JD - you know who did my CAI! :wink:

Here are some shots of my Sirius install.
I used a Pro-Fit bracket to mount my radio.

Your NB is the coolest in the universe! :D What an awesome idea for your speedometer! I really like the eyelids too; you almost can't even tell they're there with the black paint you have. Great job!!
