VERY NICE!!! Congrats, Cole.

Personally, I like the face-lift ('05-'08) models and now you have the drive-by-wire system too, so installing cruise would be easy, if it doesn't already have it.

Wish ours had keyless entry if not power windows. The wife likes it w/o though.

Also, I don't see blacking out your headlight housings or replacing the OE horn on your list of FM's?
And may I suggest some Lamin-X film (in your choice of colors) for the headlights and fogs?

the keyless entry is nice as is the power windows, though i didnt have them in the old vibe.

eh i dont care too much for the updated face i prefere the 03-04 nose.
but yes blacked out heads are on the list, i just copied and pasted stuff from my other garage thread to here, there needs to be some revisements to the list though. i need to get some cash before the horns are upgraded.

Lamin-x sounds cool for my heads and fogs, im assuming i need to google them?

well since ive been with out the vibe for about 3 months and driving an Avalachne for those three months its kinda hard to remember how the drivin characteristis were, but i do believe this has tighter steering response, throttle lags, since its DBW instead of a cable throttle which i think is better, but over all its a nice upgrade to my last vibe.

Not when you've got someone like me around.

http://www.lamin-x.com/automotive-s/47.htm

The fogs are pre-cut, but the heads.... well, I bought 2-24"x 24" bulk sheets and have yet to tackle it, but soon. I did install some clear on my John Deere, but chose the blue for the Frosty Vibe. Blue would be a good choice for your Moonstone too. *hint, hint* Or the yellow. I'm not a fan of the smoked choices. I also put blue on my rally white Mazda some years ago, but of course it has faded out over the years.
The heads on our 06 are already starting to show their age and I don't want them getting any worse. The stuff ain't cheap, but much cheaper than replacing the headlamps.

For a Texas driver? You Canadians and Michigan guys/gals should be havin' those. You need them more than we do here in Texas.

BTW Mando (off-topic:) Love the new sig. Looks really nice!!
Is it a Ponta creation?

Love this one, Cole! My model year, and nearly all my gear (monotone, monsoon, etc.). I would have loved the moonroof, though!

The mods are going to take it to another level. I'm looking forward to seeing them unfold!
Awesome color, too (was high on my list of possibles, before I settled on the Abyss).


Steelies to the rescue.

OK, but unless you are planning a complete repaint, how will the black look on Moonstone?
Also, what's w/the white walls?
Third, lose, and I mean LOSE the front plate bracket.

1. its a split decision between matte black or gloss black and it may need a full repaint in its near future. plus i think the black on the moonstone would look quite killer.
2. its the chrome ring around the rim not white walls. wheels are around 18-19"
3. i tried but got pulled over by the county sherif and was given a $260 ticket for not having it on the front. i had my plates in the front window for the longest time after i got my plates in.

1) Gloss black, for sure... and I grew up in the flat black hood era. I do like the darker gray in your pic.
2) That doesn't look like chrome....???
3) That's crazy!! It's legal to display the plate in the windshield. I've had mine there for 5 yrs now and have never been pulled over for that.... others things, sure, but but not that.

REALLY glad to see you finally starting to get into this car, Cole.
Lookin' Good, Man!!

BTW: A monotone Moonstone pulled into my parking lot just as I was about to leave work today. That color looks even BETTER in person... and it made me think about you (and yours) too. I hadn't seen this update till now. Ironic I just happened to see it today for the first time.

Thanks, as of now not lookin to upgrade the iPod yet this one is still in good workin condition and only 2½ years old. As for what else, looking to get tint in the coming months (preferably at Mothers Window Tint), either getting a K&N Drop in air filter or CAI, and S-Techs with my Tokico HP Blue struts. also to finally re-add my two 12" subs back into the car.

I can't wait to see what you've got in store for us, Cole.

Best of luck to you and hope everything works out.

You can BET YOUR LIFE I will be keeping an eye on this thread (as I am Keith's for that turbo install. )

nah, dont really need it during the day, ive remembered the positions on it, but eventually i'd like to have a decal placed over it also since my HVAC lights seem to work when they prefere to work. its like there is a loose connection behind there or something....

Love the red accents. Love the gray control covers too.... MUCH better (imo) than that aluminum look paint.
The HVAC panel I'm not so keen on. It just looks too plain. Personally, I would miss the positon markers. Perhaps that's the traditionalist in me.
If you're going to keep it that way, I would suggest that at least put a red stripe around the chamfered edges so that there is flow between it and the other red touches you've done.

the flat black and primer were both Krylon and on the HVAC i used the VHT Nightshade tint spray. and for the red i just used Testors enamel Model paint.

I noticed the spelling, too, but thought he was referring/giving a nod to the MOONstone color of his Vibe 2.0. Eh? Eh?

Steelies to the rescue.
