As time went on between then & now, I did other things in stages; 1 reason was because for some reason, I was really afraid of the whole Headlight thing, so I wanted to keep mine; that led me to Meduza. That was somewhat of a back & forth, because 1, I needed to be sure I was getting the bumper I wanted; then, their shipping to the states was only via Plane, so that was a bit of a hassle getting the Bumper; being it is fiberglass, & being shipped via plane & not an actual shipping company, it was pretty beat up when I got it. But Abra is incredible!!! (As you can see in the above pic) I wanted the 1 with the DRLs in the Bumper being I was already paying quite the fee for Shipping!.. Here is the bumper bare...
rrs-autobiography-conversion-full-pics--videos_40840807733_o.jpg Now honestly, it's looks great in this pic, but this was before it got shipped!!! hahaha I have pics of how it looked when I received it, but I won't through them under the bus that way; their customer service was really great, & I knew it'd take some work anyway to get it looking good; I must say, it paid off!!! The Bumper, is all 1 piece: fog light inserts, middle part, & tow eye cover; it's all painted!..

No more of this!!! (not to mention those whack DRLs! Haha)

On that note: the new DRL Strips I got is FINALLY something, after about 5 different sets, that I'm ACTUALLY happy with! They are from a company called The RetroFit Source...

The look OEM with the exception of the 1 I have atop the Headlight, which I'm actually about to take out, but figured I'd post it because there may be someone who wants it; I have the Pivot Switchback in the bezel of the Lights, & the Seq. at the top. I only wired the Seq. for just that purpose because it's 5000k versus the Switchbacks 6000k.

Now the INTERIOR...

So, I didn't want just the Exterior done; I also wanted an Interior change as well! This took a LONG time as well; I stayed on eBay looking,,, & looking,,, &,,,,yeah...

& I got constantly kept googling RRS ATB Interior etc. I FINALLY got a hit on something! It was/is Seat Surgeons which is also in the UK... After looking, & not being able to decide for about a month, I finally reached out to them & started dialogue to get my motivation up to get something. the other part of that was, I didn't know what color to pick that would match well; so after talks with them, they sent me a swash of about 50 samples (cost $47 which was only shipping, as the samples were free)

That helped a bunch, although even with that, it took me a couple weeks of literally riding around with 4 that I had narrowed down to, seeing how they look in different light, sun etc...

So after finally narrowing it down to the 009 (can't remember the color name now) & picking which design I wanted, they started making the kit; they do that before you pay actually; I spent a little over $900 for the kit & shipping... Here it is!..

I had a local company do the install; they said that this was by far, the hardest 1 they'd ever had in their 30 yrs of being in business; they charged me $800, but he said if anyone comes to them with this kit &?or vehicle, it will definitely be double that! He gave me the price beforehand, & stuck to his word! (Thankfully)

Here's a vid of the interior as well...

10.5" Screen/Tablet & Push to Start...

Lastly, I wanted to show you guys what I did Radio/Screen wise; I have a Kivic One in there after installing the GVIF yrs ago, but had been craving for a BIG SCREEN without having to mess with or lose any of the factory sound. So I got a Samsung Y\TAB A from my carrier, which means it has 4g, unlimited data & 50g HotSpot. Got some Command strips,,,, & there you have it! Haha HD in the RRS!!!

Also, I have a Push to Start kit that I got from
