Oh ok. Those are about the brightest plug n play leds I've seen for an interior. The license plate would also be of the tightness.

yea they are pretty bright. i really like them. the license plate leds im still not sure if im going to do them. im kind of leaning towards doing them though. you were saying the car still looked the same since the last time you saw it. i just been really busy with work. right now im mainly focusing on restoration mods. anything visibly worn im replacing it or if i can switch it for something else to give it a more mordern look. i did replace my coolant cap yesterday. the old one was pretty bad. not much of a mod but its something new lol.

Let me clarify...when I said it "looked the same" I meant, that it still looked like a work of art!

Different manufacturer but the new Chrysler 300c shifter is the nicest I've seen for Autos.

Diddy, you ask about the interior LEDs yet?

Hey diddy , I couldn't find the cl's build thread so I thought I'd ask here since you're the stance master of the CL . I'm running 18x8 25 offset up front and on 235/40 nitto tires I sit flat on the fender and can't drive . What brand and tire size you think I have to go with to get it to clear ? I have camber btw , ad sorry for putting it in the nsx thread sir.-

Ever consider going with black seats/carpet/mats? The only problem is the leather on the side of the center console is ONE piece (with the dash). I think you would have to dye it black if you wanted to achieve that black interior look.

well no for 2 reasons. one being that ive had my CL since 2005 and its red/black. i wanted something a little different. secondly i really love the look of red/tan. especially with the roof off and you can see those tan seats with that red paint. ive always been a huge fan of ferraris with red/tan so i made sure to find that combo when i went looking to buy my NSX.

Yeah, I always liked the tan/red combo. It's a more "classy" look then the "sporty" black look. 6 speed conversion conversion?!?
