November 2018 ROTM Entries



Quote:
5 photos; no more, no less. NO collages. Modifications list if you prefer*Pictures must be of current state of car... only exception is winter tires. Parts currently for sale or waiting to be installed may not be included. If your wheels/retros/suspension/etc. are currently for sale, even if still on car, they cannot be listed in the mod list. Cars that are currently for sale may not be submitted. No "Future Modifications" either*

Remember, please post your entries and pictures in this thread.

So now through the 20th: Submission Entries. Please post your entries and pictures in this thread. (Submissions after 11:59PM on the 21st will not be included in the competition)

On the 23rd through end of the month: A poll will be added containing the entered submissions. A voting poll will be created so that all members get the chance to vote on their favourite. The person with the most votes at the end of the month will be the winner for the month!

Question. Don't have a 2nd R (yet). If a person has more than one, and has won once can he enter the 2nd time?

Thanks!
They are wrapped in Hot Rod Red vinyl by a local sign shop. Real close match to Redline paint.

Yes, pod is on the dash and is homemade. shell is formed from a sheet of mild steel and covered in leather. Two outside gauges are small led panels mounted behind blue Lexan. TPMS readout mounted in the center, Gauge rings made to match the A/C knobs. Right gauge rotates from Voltage to Inside Temp to time.

Sorry, I guess I was trying to show off the dash logo that SSRon2 made for me.
The whole interior, with the additions listed, is in the same excellent condition as the exterior of our SSR.
