a bath and new toys for the baja [56K]tread carefully[/56K]

this is the first time i ever washed it.

went and spent some money this weekend. see if you can spot it all.



















for those who don't know:

new KC lights up front (200,000 candle power. i've yet to see them on in the dark)
i also finally fixed the other lights so i have headlights for nighttime.
mounted a toolbox in the back (1. for tools, 2. for lockable storage).
new tail light lenses (they actually match now. i'm getting new assemblies on monday because these just don't work very well. but they're prettyful).
new reverse lights so i can see where i'm going when backing up, or warn other drivers to get off my ass.
new The Smiths sticker because, well, they rock.
new crow 5-point harnesses.
all new switches in the dash (well, mostly. still have to change the bottom switch and horn button)
new radio (couldn't hook the other one i bought up, so i got this one. i don't like it, but it works).

and yes, i took off the pirate flag. just too white trash for me, and it made a lot of sound right in my ear.



still on the list (in no particular order):
new seats
redo the wiring (again, eventhough i just did it, i want to do it better, and the whole thing)
possibly a new hood because this one is kinda messed up, and there are hole where the fittings go, so it doesn't attach everywhere it should.
different radio and new speakers (music is very very important)
new shocks
different rims/wheels (i always have and always will hate white rims)
new dash (so the switches are actually straight since the PO didn't line anything up , and it's all one piece)
couple of new/different gauges/warning lights
have to find a way to mount the spare tire and tire iron so it doesn't fly around
other misc stuffs i can't think of right now.

That car looks badass!! I saw them race when I was out west in AZ a few years ago, it was a designated area, and it looked like alot of fun. You probably have some sick suspension travel in that setup. Looks like a blast to drive!!

What's the use of happiness? It can't buy you money.
