JN2k108's rubber floor mats. Used, but they'll do the job perfectly fine. :)




Another little touch of "home."




Rear wiper delete for $3. I used a large flat top carriage bolt, some rubber washers, and a nut on the back. Water is never seeping through this thing! I wrapped the bolt in gloss black vinyl, so it blends in with the tinted glass fairly well.

Nice! I'm glad you have some use for them. I should meet up with you one day to do an auto x lol.

You should, but first you need to come down to Atlanta. ;)

Disconnected the backseat power socket for a plug 'n play splitter mounted behind the steering column cover panel.




Permanent GPS mount. This does not effect center speaker sound quality, it may effect the acoustics, but nothing the human ear would detect.




Rear view mirror radar detector mount.




No wires dangling through the cabin, just the way I like it.




Also swapped out the Ultra racing strut bar for my EST bar and the chrome Injen pipe for my black Injen pipe.



The interior is almost up to par with my S40. :D

Dropped the rear another inch, sits perfect for my taste. But the front needs to lower another 5mm to level everything off.




Rear seat delete, more to come soon.

That looks awesome on the mini! But a bit too aggressive for my taste. I am considering a cupra lip though, if it'll fit...

Out of curiosity are you going to put anything in place of the rear seat and what's the Cupra lip? The lip on my moms cosmic is destroyed :(. Only part of the body that is bad...

Yep! In the process of building a rear shelf to extend the trunk further. Battery is going to be relocated to the trunk, and I'm finishing up the rear strut bar.

It won't be exactly like this, but this will give you the general idea:




The Cupra lip is what Slasher went with, but I need to make sure it'll line up right with the V2 body kit on my car.

Took out the sub, for now... Can't decide if I'll put it in the 850 or keep it for my car on the rainy days.

Also swapped out the iPd skid plate for my Miller Motoring Skid Plate. Bought some carriage bolts, cut off the edges with an angle grinder, and they were a perfect replacement for the rusted factory skid plate bolts.

TheBelgian stopped by last night to swap my brake lights over.

On a stock car, the lower "arches" were the taillights and the ugly rectangles on the upper portion were the brake lights. As seen on the Blue C30 here:



Now, the lower arches function as both the taillight and the brake lights. I know the upper brake lights provided a more noticeable location and it was a throwback to the old Volvo wagons. But now there is significantly more brake light illumination and it looks a lot more modern. :D

Taillights:
