Haha thanks, You learn to hate it! At a $2.4Billion pricetag, seems like it would require less maintnance!

Nice video, what editing software are you using? Time for some forced induction looks like your having trouble keeping up

FI is on the "to-do" list.

I use Vegas Pro 11, could be way better but not enough experience with the software or enough footage from the cruise.

Looks great, as do the photos. Did you take the car into a studio for the shots, the lighting look fantastic.

Next up - paint your center console. You'd be amazing how great a simple coat of paint is...

It's definitely worth it - a simple rattle can job can do wonders for the interior. Why they went with that awful gray I'll never understand.

Im actually thinking of Upholstering it. Paint WILL get Scratched up, and then it will look cheap.

Haha, its pretty labor intensive.
Cost of materials:
Piece of 1/4" Lexan $11
Plastic cutting Jigsaw blades $5
PVC Coupler $5
Epoxy $5
Sticky Felt $6
Also need the seat-spacer mod to recline the seat (Higher mounting point for the cupholder) $4 in parts
So its at around $36 in parts alone lol.

Well worth it to me!
