The headlights are discolored, different from each other but not nasty.


The interior is nice too.




This fell off, along with the LX badge years ago.


This car also had a aftermarket alarm, removed.


This little box beeps at you when you leave the key in or you leave the lights on, removed.


I replaced the rear speakers and radio.




I removed the wind catchers near the tires.


In the coming months I am planning to modify this vehicle for better fuel economy with aeromods and more.
