Thanks man, I'm glad you like it. The exhaust plus the muffler only cost $120 but the stainless tip set me back $80!


nice exhaust and I really like the price :) . I need to get a new exhaust on my baja, but I'm having trouble finding any for the baja. any suggestions on where to find some. And what kind is the one you got?

Making that coin holder into a switchbay

follow the "dismantling the interior" thread to access the center console. Push the tabs on the bottom of the coin tray to remove it.

Image

I used a razor and dremel to make vertical cuts in the center fins of the coin holder then used a set of needle nosed pliers to grab and twist the plastic out. Use some sand paper and a razor to remove any excess plastic the lightly run a lighter over it to polish the rough plastic you just created. Using your Dremel, cut out the appropriate holes to make your switches and/or Aux audio cables fit. Install and all done!

Painting your grille

Open your hood and remove the 6 8mm grille bolts and 1 10mm bolt in the very front center. The 3 8mm bolts circled in red are on each side of the grille.

Once you have it off, clean it up real good, scuff the parts to be painted with sand paper and tape off the areas you do not want painted. I chose to paint the chrome trim and not the dark gray areas. Give it ample time to dry and reinstall. A cheap and easy mod to give it some character!

Installing Mesh Behind your Grille

Follow the above post on how to remove your grille - http://tinyurl.com/Grilleremoval

Once you have it off and you have your mesh (source - http://tinyurl.com/metalmesh) cut it to fit behind the large openings. I had leftover mesh so I had to make 2 separate pieces for one side.

Image

I then used JBweld to attach the mesh to the grille. I scuffed up the plastic and stuck it on. I suppose Epoxy could work as well.

Image

Once it hardens just reinstall it. Pretty snazzy!

What size of tires are the grabbers? My local tire store told me I couldn't fit those on my baja rims :|
