    If you go with a grant wheel, they have a hub adapter that keeps the cruise control.

    Ok ill have to try and find the kit.

    I did the door panels today and fixed my doorlocks. The actuators plugs fell out cause the retainer clips were snapped off. So I taped them real good. They have never worked since I got the car.

    Here's the door panels.

    I found a thread on another site that showed guys who used momo wheels and made a thin bracket and mounted the cruise switches to it. May have to fashion something like that up.

    I found a dash center vent pad in grey but it turned out to be titanium grey and looked awful. My solution was to dye it black and paint the center vents. Not sure about it but it's growing on me.

    Y'all can be honest. If it looks bad say so.

    My center pad was torn by the vents so my plan was just to replace it but I unknowingly got the wrong color.

    It looks good man. I think dying the two other vents and the sounding area would like nice as well, kinda tie it all together. I would leave the underside gray to continue the two tone theme.

    Pics are much easier to see on the internet than they are on my phone, haha.

    The interior is coming along nicely, when am I gonna get to see this in person?

    Went back to the track
    The only changes to the car was the gt40 exploder intake and the elec fan and the modified exhaust

    Last year with stock intake and clutch fan I went 13.76@98 or so
