You worked hard and did a great job, but the original wheels look 10x better.

Listen, I don't mean to be disrespectful...but people like Eater modify their car because it's one of their passions. Although he may do it to attract attention....he damn sure isn't doing it to impress people like you. Sure you may not agree with some of the things he does to his car, and even I wouldn't do some of those things to mine either, but that's no reason to say "if you want to learn how to screw up a car, read here"....Your first comment is acceptable, but I think you went too far with the second one and owe the forum-goers and PantyEater an appology.

So you are saying that just because an opinion about the car being more beautiful on page one, and uglier towards the end of the thread that he is wrong? You may think the car is nice, and entitled to voice your admiration. He thinks it is ugly, so what.

Default Dash Panels - remove or cover

I'm impressed. Did you remove the dash panels or did you just cover them without removing them?

Can one de-badge a C70 using dental floss? Are the letters just glued on like most cars?

I like this transformation done in time, not instantly, through the time you discover some new ideas and the fianl car looks often a lot different then you imagined when you started this transformation...

I think your mods are awesome. I believe, "its your thing, do what you want to do"!! Make your vehicle uniquely yours! Hope to post my 07 C70 shortly. I'm still trying to figure out why I cant get more pics into my gallery, but I'll figure it out sooner or later. Anyhow, great job on your car! Post more pics!!!!

Hard to read this thread, most of the pictures are missing due to people posting to sites that are gone, but it appears to be a thread about an S70 but I found it pinned to the forum for the C70. It hasn't been touched/updated in 5 years, why is it something that needs to be a stickie at all, let alone in a forum about a completely different car.

Yay! First post!
