Default The Grond Chronicles : And the Mods go on...... [Dialup: you know the script]

More mods were delivered today and others that I have had for a while and forgot to post.

New Tyre Pressure sensors for my new bling wheels.
Bought Home Depot O-rings to seal properly


New fascia for my AVIC N2. The generic textured look just wasn't cutting it


New power distribution modules. Fuses light up purple when power is flowing through them.


Red LED taillight bulbs and equalizers. I've had this for a few months, just lazy to install them. I have 8 for all 4 corners.


Northeast EZ-Pass toll station sensor mounted in a very discreet location. Works like a charm.


Got this at Carlisle - just mounted it.


With all the electrical and fuel mods - new engine, etc. I thought this mod would be prudent.


Competition Cams "R" hydraulic racing lifters designed for higher engine speeds. This is to compliment my new Godzilla cam.
Bought slightly used so they need a good cleaning.

New Whiteface Gauges that light up in really a really cool colour


Ordered this setup a few days ago - 30psi boost gauge and Fuel Pressure gauge with 2 pod A-Pillar.
Pic is of Asmokegears' awesome car when I was at ECS.
Mine will be the same but with black faces.


LED under door handle lights for the Ricer in me




And this is a as yet undisclosed button - guess what this does....

Does that red button turn on all of your rice mods at once?

I'm going to get you a gift certificate to Radio Shack.

What's the red light for? Or is that a button?

I think that is the driver's side seat ejection button.

Stephen, you don't need O-rings with the late model pressure sensors. As you can see in this pic, the new sensors come equipped with a permanent (reusable) rubber seal...that stepped seal you see replaced the O-ring used on the older model sensors.

I think when you press that red button you get more cash in the glove box for more mods

Ofcourse, my car doesn't have one
