I can't wait to get the car to flood this section. Just kidding, but seriously I have some DIY items I want to post. I guess I will be the pioneer.

I don't even have my car yet so it's hard to do any DIYs yet

I probably will work on the audio system lockout shortly after getting the car, but probably not for a few weeks, will be busy replacing parts on the DD to sell it.

First DIY I'm doing - install homelink mirror. Already found the plug, just waiting for the windshield adapter to arrive in the mail.

I've always been broke so all my past cars have been modified all by my hands so I look forward to getting my hands on the frs so I can knock out some simple thrifty but clean DIY mods!
