I did a few mods just before winter comes, and it turned out pretty nice.

-Stubby (thx for flipspeed)
-Overly smoked Sidemarkers
-Painted the flying M at the back
-Installed Injen Cold air intake

So here are the pics.

EDIT: do the \'06s come without a battery cover? or is it gone b/c of the intake?

I\'m planning to take the sticker off too because i want to wait until i got most of my mods done so i can line them up at once.
The flying M in the front. I was thinking about that too but it takes too long and i\'m kinda lazy after all that. Maybe i\'ll do it after the winter.
About the tints. Would it affect the tints if i do it in the winter? like i mean if i got it done maybe next month and it snows right after i got it done will it screw it up? I\'m out of \"bling bling\" right now so i want to wait.
Also i just forgot to put the battery cover back in. There is a battery cover. ;)

I\'ll try to find a nice night and take some pics since it\'s been pretty cold lately. The side markers look amazing at night because i purposly painted only the top of it and not the edge so when it flashes there is more light coming out of the surrounding area then the top.

All this work took me umm..i\'d say 4-5 hours including the wait time for the paints to dry. And the intake was a bit*h to install because of the sensors and takingthe bumper off with the fogs and the temperature sensor.

*edit*
Sidemarker night pic uploaded.

The paints i used were the ones at crappy tire and went to the house paint section. Got a large can for $3 because i find the automotive ones expensive. And yes i did take it out to paint it and was a bitch to take it out.

The paint i used on the side markers were Tamiya Acrylic paint. I got it from pmall at a hobby store for $3 tax in. I just used a brush to brush it on. But takes a white for it to completely dry.

Hope this helped.
