So ive been lurking on the site for about a yr now and I decided that it was finally time for a build thread…… It would have been useless before because I really haven’t done to many mods until lately. I am going to “Boxed in the Smokies” in 11 days now so that was the motivation I needed to get on the ball.
Well you all know what a stock xb looks like….. that’s basically what I started with. I threw these rims on (they were from my civic):
massive wheel gap ftl, ima fix that problem soon.
the tail lights that were on the car were stock and the guy tried to paint them, without much success I might add, they looked horrible! So I got some led tails, and i debadged it:
So those were the only exterior mods that I have to show @ the moment.
I had a couple of projects for the inside. I bought an AVIC-D3 head unit, and i made some lil' spacers:
I like it but its got a lot of bugs!
Then I decided to put some gauges in, and I wanted something a lil’ different so I put them in the “oven” part of the console. Whoever had the b before me had hacked it up pretty bad so I had to work with what I had:
It was pretty simple to do, I have all of the picture for the steps that I took to make if anyone is interested…..
Then I painted my speedometer bezel. It had some paint on it already so I had to sand it down:
Yeah, shortbus_8 style…..
Then I painted my 1st layer of white:
Quick note: do not grab wet paint……
After that disappointment I had to sand and paint and sand and paint and sand and paint….. did I mention a had to sand and paint.
So I taped it off and put on my final coat:
It only took me 2 weeks to get it done….
I got some more in the works. Stay tuned.
I got new wheels (new to me anyway) but I am gonna powdercoat them. Heres a before pic:
The man in brown is supposed to bring me powder this week. *waiting patiently*
