Well, it's not really as extreme as my engine covers, and it's not really Type-R, but I did do it myself.

First of all, thanks to ERA RSX TypeS for the motivation, and thanks to my friend Margot for getting me the needles, and finding the thread.

It tooke me probably 8-10 hours to do. The thing that took so long was that the thread was pretty thin, so I had to run 3 lengths of thread at a time.

It was all pretty self explanatory on how to take everything apart and figure out how to do the sewing. If you have any questions let me know.

All I need to do now is get a blacklight for inside the car... and find out where to mount it. Ah well. All in time. :)

Here are the pix. The ones with a blacklight are the one that I'm holding above it. I don't have one inside yet.

That's cool, for a second I thought you had a light inside the boot.

I'll pass on this mod, I'm pretty sure I can't sew for shit.

Heheheh, Thanks! It doesn't look absurd during the day, so its not too ricey. Until I get the neon lights. Buahahahahah. :laughing: But my pseudo-theme for this and some of my other mods is kind of like "rice at the flip of a switch". ;)

Anyway, onto the other pictures... here's one of after I took the middle part out. You can see how the boot is attached with staples.

Incidentally, does anyone know why attaching a file isn't displaying it by itself?

pseudo-closeup on the threads... They're really not that hard to take out. The threads that you see that I've changed don't actually hold the boot together at all. There are three threads per seam on the boot... 2 are decorative, 1 actually holds it together. If you use a thread puller to get the decorative ones out, it makes things a LOT simpler... My roomate had one, so I used it, and it ruled.

Does anyone know a good place to get neon blacklites for inside the car? I saw two streetglow 6" bulbs on www.buyneonlights.com for $40... which isn't too bad, but if anyone knew of a different brand or retailer, that'd be kewl.

Anyone used the Streeglow accent neon stuff? I wanna put some inside my car. Just wondering if it was easy to wire and whatnot, or if people knew of other brands.

i have an idea for you... i think....

this MIGHT work, just something i thought i'd throw out. You know that dim red light thats above your cup holder? Why dont u get a strong black photon light, and maybe try to see if it will work if u fit it there? just a suggestion. :D
