Interior Woodgrain Delete (w/ pics)

I freaking hate woodgrain. I can think of few things I loathe more than woodgrain. I dunno who came up with the notion that it looks "classy" or "upscale", but I'd like to hook them up to life...

Re: [Guide] WK H1 Mini Morimoto Retrofitting Low Beam

There ya go. If you mess it up, the shop can always fix it. Hell, paint is an excellent primer! Lol.

Re: Fully functional Euro taillights installed with video

I'd like to see some real world testing with these. 180 amps at idle sure sounds badass, but does it really perform?

Re: HO Alt.

You need the "4-ear" mounting style for the 3.7.

Oh, and BTW, the stock piece is either 136 or 160 amps.
