Gelogmarine & the Tale of the Second Shark Attack

Well my first tiburon: a beloved hybrid of daily driver and art project, created from secondhand parts in an art student's garage, has died. (me lloro)
Its unique journey into rebirth here:
http://www.newtiburon.com/forums/showthread.php?t=220839&highlight=
It was killed by a civic (rear-ended) seen here:

It sucks, but I had to move on.
and I purchased this a week ago:


It is an 05 v6 se with:
strut bar, lowering springs, window tint, HID's, cat back exhaust, and dragon-dong SRI. all of which are likely from ebay!








To do list:
clean
sort out audio system
fix paint fades
restore headlights
angel eyes
install headers (maybe)
remove red ebay trims
GO CRAZY!!!

-tuscani caps

tuscani badging


working on a new shift boot, steering wheel cover, armrest cover and sun visor covers
(basically, everything redline goods does but for less than $15)

took one of my twin subs and swapped it for a smaller box and later put the other pioneer sub in.
now I have good bass AND trunk space


also, thinking of a matte black/gloss black two tone.
getting rid of the red stripes
installing AE's
painting the engine plastics

also thinking of ways to improve steering feel. its just not as firm as the 03 for some reason.

updates..
Sub goes boom but with mild interference noise from engine.

made a shift boot. credit goes to Xcreek whose design I simplified

installed some ebay AEs that I fitted with plastic covers from superbrightleds.com

it cost <25 for everything (with shipping), and they were supposed to be equal to DD in quality but im not satisfied at all. they arent as bright as my old ones and 3 diodes have burned out already. plus instalation was thrown off by the covers and one shifted after i closed the headlight. i guess they are ok for now though.
will be contacting member EL LEGAL soon for another pair of quality ones very soon.

and night shot


also trying to work out a couple of oxidation spots.
i used turtle wax rubbing compound and it helped a lot with the oxidization but left small linear scratches everywhere.
any advice?
