Help with Summer mods
Hey guys whats up. Im thinkin of doin some easy summer mods to my car since i have a month off. I want yalls opinion on several things. If you look at my profile/info you can see what my car looks like and what mods ive got right now up to date. I was wondering...I want to paint my interior dash and have never painted before. Is it fairly easy to not mess up? I was thinkin of goin red...but anyway. Here are some mods that I want on my car for this summer.
-Custom piping exhaust/ new exhaust...any opinions as to what brand?
-Tinted windows...About what percent do yall recommend me goin with?
-Viper Alarm System with remote control start... thumbsup or thumbsdown ?
-Painted red engine plastics and dash...yay or nay?
-And finally...save for new tires

Please post your opinions as to what you guys think. Thanks alot! I appreciate it.

Also go with an exhaust, but don't do a custom straight pipe w/a canister in the end 'cuz it's gonna sound rice unless you add a resonator which will give it a deeper tone. There's a groupbuy over on New Celica on the RSR exhaust for $350ish shipped.

Yea...about the exhaust...I want something with a low pitched sound but not sooo loud that it gets cops attention like crazy. AKA i dont want a catback. Any suggestions? Also i want it to be safe in the long run for my engine. I heard that if you change the piping itself, that it gives it a lower and louder sound.

And about the painting..Im going to be spray painting my dash and AC vents red. I really like the color that billy picked out for his celica. Im thinkin about painting the engine plastics as well.
