Felix what where you thinking with those rims?



Got the lump of an eta from atlanta in 2002. Needed some work needed some paint.

First thing I did was throw in the system (first of 2)
JVC KD LX-50 Deck
Infinity refrence 5/14"s
no rear fill
Pioneer 600w amp (old school)
Two MTX thunder 4000 subs
Tadaa... (the silent sticker is gone)

I also drilled my bumper shocks


I drove around like this for awhile.. Bad paint.. and a system.

Picked up wheels while I was at it. Looked funny at stock height for awhile.

I got some Eibachs and Blistens too. I got a Motronix short shift as well.


Changed the system too, MTX gone.. 4 fill speakers finally (added some Fostgate Fanatics) and Actually did some pretty stuff to the trunk.

Respray
Black Kidneys
15" BBS wheels

Suspension:
Eibachs
Blistien

Performance:
Motronix SSK

Interior/Audio:
Recaro SE seat
JVC KD LX50 Head unit
