Greetings from So Cal.
« on: July 17, 2012, 09:45:27 PM »
So I purchased my 06 NA in December and have kind of been lurking on the site for a few months.  I have started upgrading my car, and yes I have pics, just trying to figure out how to upload.  So far I have done:
DDM Backbone
DDM Probeam
Latin Venom Front Brace
GMPP Intake
Hitch for my bike
De Badged
Plasti Dipped the Arrowheads, Front grill and rear facia.
Yellow Calipers

Next:
JPM Shifter
Tomason Wheels if I can find a set before my brother moves back from Germany

You can link to a hosting site like picasa or join the forum as a supporting member and host them here.  Someone much smarter than me will chime in with the details. 

Welcome to the forum.  Thousand oaks is a nice place with some fun roads around.  A short days journey from San Diego!

Amazing timing. SoCal / San Diego now has active members on this forum. 40rty is close by too, as are a few "snoopers" of the forum. Maybe a mod meet is in the future after all.

Perhaps 2016.

Welcome aboard!  As I am a SoCal native (born in Orange) we already have more in common than just our affinity for Kappas :)

Thanks Critterman, I run into Mr. Leno a couple times a month on a part of Mulholland Highway we call "the snake".  Pretty nice guy, he is always willing to talk cars and is always driving something different.
