    Building BlueRex

    Well, after 18 months of ownership, I figured it was time to start the mods. I guess technically they started last summer with my stereo system. I don't have pics of the install of that stuff, but here's what i put in it. First pic are the speakers and amp I used:


    Here's the head unit. Pioneer AVH-P3400BH


    Here's the sub in the trunk. The box says Titan, because i used it in my 04 Nissan Titan. Was made to fit under the rear seat, but it works here ok and saved me some bucks. Plus I loved the truck dearly so it's like having a piece of it with me. It holds a 10" RF punch sub


    I also got this Kartboy shift knob, which I'll be re-using on a short throw....see the next post for that stuff

    So, the next phase begins this weekend (or that is the plan) WTF Tuning set me up with some driveline/suspension stuff. Front and Rear sway bars, new endlinks, bushings, etc. the Kartboy short throw with all the fixins', some rear diff inserts and some other stuff. Rear bar in the pic, front bar arrives tomorrow:



    I'll post more pics after this weekend.

    two items installed today. Front sway bar (Whiteline 24mm with kartboy endlinks) and a kartboy short throw shifter.

    Small update from this weekend. Installed Hella Supertones. Wasn't really looking to do this originally, but my horn started sounding pretty bad, so I just did it. I didn't want the stock red, so took a bumper vent up to Home Depot and they put it on their spectrogram machine and color matched some exterior paint for me. The shine of the sample kind of skewed the color, but the guy was determined, and after three tries, we got what I think is pretty darn close. Without the metallic flake, it's never going to look exact, but behind the grille it's pretty well matched, at least I think.



    Only broke 3 clips getting this off....


    the bracket and wire harness are from subimods.

    Wow you went above and beyond to color match those horns. On my WRB STI, I just went for the closest blue rattle can I could find in the spray paint aisle
