Nice setup We can see the two color pinstripe better in your most recent pics Looks good. Also I plan on doing an almost identical ScangaugeII install as you did. I'll move the inverter switch over to the right instead of where it currently is and position the ScangaugeII to the far left as possible.

Thanks for taking pictures of the window visors Geoff ! I'm still torn on whether to get some or not ...

It's about time you "branded" your Vibe !

Can't wait to see it Tim. My only suggestion would be to somehow "cheat" the angle of the SGII screen towards you. Mine is flush and aimed straight back so there is a little of the contrast lost. Just look at yours from a sharp angle and you will see what I mean. I can still read mine fine though, its just the readout is not as sharp as looking at it dead-on.

Carrie, I want the Weather Guard ones but they didn't come with the visor for the little triangle window. I like continuity so I went for that. Lol.

Thanks for the comments, y'all!!

LOL! I agree about the continuity ! I have heard negative reviews on the rear WeatherTech visors. I have heard quite a few people on here say they don't stay in place very well which makes me shy away from them. I guess I'll just do without any... for now anyway... !

I saw a local Vibe last week that had the visors over the third windows as well and wondered about them as I'd never seen them before... I like the flow of having all three visored, it looks awesome. I'll stick with mine how they are though (unless I ever break any of the visors, then I'll replace them with the complete set).

Love how yours looks, I'm normally not a fan of red cars, but yours is sweet.


November, 2011 VOTM!

Thanks for the kind words! To be honest, I am not a fan of red cars either. When I saw this one though, my mind changed pretty quickly. I like the "darkness" of the red paint. Parked next to many other red cars, mine is darker while the others look like a sunburned tomato.
=========
And Carrie, I was thinking about taking a bunch of pics once everything is installed but realized that the only things visible will be the subs and the head unit. LOL. But there will be some pics of course.

Watch what you say about red cars This is a mod where an Audio clip may need to be posted ..... say about a MILE down the road You'll still be able to hear it also, I'm sure Take lots of notes when opening up panels, especially where you accidentally BREAK a clip or part of a plastic panel. This way if/when we all do any similar mod, we'll know what to look for. The equipment looks damm good just sitting in the boxes and I'm sure it will sound incredible when done. Looking forward to pics & progress

And my signature is gone. And photos I posted are replaced with my new "signature" as well as my city. Guess I'm done!

Sadly, I had to sell the Vibe. I miss it all the time. Three to four times a week I see the same lady on the way to work and she has a Red Vibe GT just like my old one.

But I have a new red wagon so I am a bit happy about that.

How have you been? Still rocking the double Vibe action in Sammich?

I had a feeling you were going to say you got rid of it :(. What are you driving now?

I'm good! Both Vibes are still going strong. They'll both be hitting 80,000 miles within the next few weeks.

It takes me a minute to get used to your new name...I remember when you changed it but still. J_TO_ENVY!!!!!

I'm now riding high in my Subaru Crosstrek. I like that the thing because it has good ground clearance. Ive been taking it "soft roading" in the mountains around these parts. It is a stable car but not nearly as zippy as my old GT.

80K is just about the break-in point for those engines, right? Im glad both of them are treating you and your family well!
