I had the same shift knob with UUC short shifter, DSSR and trans mounts. You will not be disappointed with that setup. Make sure you get the TSE3 exhaust you will love the sound.

New pictures!!!

Ok so its been a long time coming that I said I was going to take some more pictures and the weather finally cleared up so I took advantage I took these few today after I finished applying the third coat of Chemical Guys 50/50 paste wax and was blown away with the results. I have never layered carnaubas before but im glad I did. All 3 coats were applied with 3 hour intervals and fully cured. Lastly, I have tweaked the suspension height slightly and eliminated the rubbing in the rear. Enjoy!!!

It's alright, the people that gave me $hit aren't going to come back to say it looks good because that would make them look stupid I do need to make a DIY but I don't have pictures of the process when I did it.

Went through it at the beginning but haven't really followed it until today. It is nice to see how wonderfully modded your ZHP has gotten. Also Imola Red FTW

Perfect ride height and wheels for your ZHP!
