Post up Pics of your R107 mods, etc.

I am not sure if this has been done before in this forum or not, I couldn’t find anything. Moderators, if this is a duplicate please delete the thread.

I've seen threads like this in other forums, where people post pics of their car purchases, modifications, fixes and upgrades. It is a great source of ideas and inspiration. For those of us experiencing withdrawals during the upcoming winter month, it is a fun thread to follow.
If a modification you would like to post has been done before and is already posted, it doesn’t really matter, post it anyway. This is all about R107 porn. The key is to keep the information somewhat concise with lots of pictures, you can always link to the more detailed built thread if there is one. Of course comments are always welcome. If the mods/purchases, etc. you’ve done are a few years old, post them anyway.

Corbeau seats. Installation was a bit challenging as their adapter kit did not fit as advertised. I wrote a thread at the time.

16" Pentas refinished and installed

"Dual" exhaust changed to big single exhaust

Antenna switch added to console to actually control the use of the antenna
