The transformation of my RYD

Well, I decided it was time I consolidated all of my mods into one thread

The first post will be my progress up to this point. All future updates will be posted here. Here goes nothing!

The day I bought her:







First Mod:









Added HIDs



Dipping:











SS Tail Covers











Tint







Wheels







LED under dash. All interior lights are also replaced with LED bulbs, but I don't have pics of that.

Thank you. In my opinion, it looks kinda cheap without the lip painted. I'm so glad I spent the time to do it
