    Very nice project, well documented and very extensive! I cannot help wondering, and I ask myself am I the only person asking the question "WHY?"

    I'm impressed by the drive and energy shown here. Along with all the extra time available to do this stuff.
    But, all I can think of is......Have you ever seen those Hollywood women who keep getting plastic surgery and for some reason they actually think they get better looking each time, but their friends are too afraid to tell them the truth.....they get a lot of head turns also.......

    I have to keep telling myself how boring the world would be if everyone were the same. These are the projects that make life interesting.

    That made me chuckle.. but to each their own. I mod my Prius and people still ask.. "Why a Prius?"

    mostly I get the "only fags drive Priuses" line. then I have to correct them and say "no, we're dorks. only dorks drive prii. fags drive minis or pt cruisers." and then I point out that they drive SUVs and pickups because they're compensating.

    I see I am not the only one with the idea of red rims and a roof bin, I endorse that look.
