    worked on the door panels this weekend. cleaned them up and added new speaker grilles, map pocket deletes and added sound barrier to the backs. thought about doing new map pockets but I wanted to go for a cleaner look and I don't use the pockets + it's easy to add back on later if I want them I figured.

    Didn't relize how sad it looked until I took a pic of it,

    Hopefully (fingers crossed) the car itself will be out of the shop by the end of april, then I can get going on putting it back together.I'm going to stop by the shop this week again. they had started working on the roof last thursday but I didn't have my camera with me. It's still ongoing but the I'm getting edgy :D. until then I'm going to tincker with interior stuff and clean peices up.

    My LX is bone stock and I'd like to keep it that way but I may have to put those deletes on that thing cause they look stock and map pockets look just plain ugly!

    It's real easy to put map pockets back on. The kit was simple to install and i got new door panels clips from lrs at the same time. I would do it if you like the look, they are quality peices.

    took a couple of pics today. I worked on the roof some more fixing low spots, finished wrapping the motor in plastic and masking the engine bay to protect it and starting to clean the grime of the rear panel. just little stuff, the roof will be done today but I had to leave.

    I'm tossing around color choices. It's still going to be white but I'm going for I different tint vs the bright white of the stock color. I was my local Ford dealer about a week ago and they had a white 2010 Fusion and I really liked the white on it. In the shade it looked really classy and showed the lines real well and when the sun hit it and looked even better and still held the lines which most of the time is lost in white.

    This is the color I'm looking at,

    I'm also liking the Lexus Starfire pearl white. I gotta price out the paint and then go from there. If it's not bad I may go for it but things are getting tight on this project.

    My OEM power lock actuators came in from tousley ford. I'd rather have these than the aftermarket ones in the long run.
