Disconnected the battery while I put the new radio in, and all the bs codes cleared, BONUS!!! This thing hauls *** again. Anyhow on to the goodies - Installed the new Eclipse Head unit, and the Infinity Kappas up front, an Infinity Ref cs set in the rear, removed the rear drivers jumpseat and rear wall panels to get the measurements for the next part of my upgrade, cleaned up all the stuff that I have no idea how it got in behind said panels. Then took it for a test ride, alone ( Much more peaceful and more effective than letting the wife ride with me while I tried out the new stuff).. Realized I need another hour or so with the fine tuning of the head unit though... Decided to wash it for the first time in 2 months. Then took the wife out for a nice dinner, hit some damn bugs on the way home and need to wash it again...

Changed some dash lights and did the throttle cable mod. response is awesome now.

next move is remove/sand/paint the front bumper.

also do the mesh grille to protect my radiator, and i'll install some hooks just to tie stuff. no heavy duty ones
