-Put on the clear corners I just bought from brigidy.

That...pretty much sums it up.

Maybe in the future some 2006 tails, and a billet grille or something. I wanna keep this one pretty stock for a long time.

Heres what I want, or need to do...

Replace rear brake lines (ASAP, been disconnected for a month now)

2 more speakers (After Uncle Sam pays up)

Sub and Amp (see above)

3" BL (late summer early fall)

33" Tires (late summer early fall)

Sandblast and paint both bumpers, they are showing their rust again, I'll do it better this time (Summer)

Figure out a way to either flip the way my rear slider opens, or the front window opens on my cap, I loose alot of space for hauling long boards because they open in opposite directions.

Exhaust (Im too cheap to replace what isnt broken, so whenever the old one gives me probs)

Im sure I can think of other things later
