Modifications

Drivetrain
Probably won't do much here at the moment. Runs ok for the most part, but the atx is a bit notchy in the lower gears, particularly when colder. (Part of that is the catalyst warm up I'm told.)

Christmas Wishes for . . .
Newer 3L V6 with matching automatic from an 05+.
Interior
Roof actuator cylinder upgrade (Complete)
Headliner replacement (Complete)
Replacing interior roof moldings (Complete)
Replace other interior plastic components, dash/console (Complete)
Driver side door panel replacement (In the works)

Considering . . .
Console (surface) replacement (Titanium Burl/Black Marble)
Seat covers (Black W/Titanium/Marble inserts. Picture is just illustrative.)
Door panel (Black W/Titanium inserts.)
Floor mats (Titanium)
Something with my steering wheel (Crazed when purchased.)

(Titanium Burl being a medium grey with dark swirls in my view.)
Exterior
Grille Replacement (Complete)
Repaint - Magma Red (Complete)

Considering . . .

Christmas Wishes for . . .

Sony MEX-BT3900U. (Complete)
