Thanks man and you enjoy your stay on NT.com! I'm not a huge fan of fully leather seats, these are the best in my opinion, your butt never gets cold or hot cause that part is cloth lol. And yea all that wheel gap is gone because of a 2" drop lol.

Why cars are often photographed in (abandoned) industrial locations?

Welcome to the site :D . Nice Tibby. Nothing flashy, just way a car should be. I've got a Redline shift boot too, but mine is black leather with charcoal stitching.

I occasionally have to drive to industrial locations for work; I agree... it makes a neat setting!

Swimmer, welcome to the forums! Awesome car there! Did you do all the work yourself?

I was never big into Hyundai but i fell in love with the Tiburon lol. And for whatever reason industrial settings just add something to the photo.

To answer your question, yes i did all of the work myself with the exception of the clutch (I had a friend who has a shop (and a lift) help me).

Picture yourself in a boat on a river,
entering the Gnome Valley Kingdom
with tangerine trees, and marmalade porkchops.
Someone calls you, you answer with haste,
a man with a clutch in his hand.
Celefane shift boots of yellow and green, towering over your head.
Look for the man with the clutch in his hand and hes gone.
Noob in the land of Gnomes.
Noob in the land of Gnomes.
Noob in the land of Gnomes.
Follow him down to the thread by a fountain.
Where a bunch of men talk about marshmellow pie.
Everyone smiles a you drift around the corner.
Then they all get high.
Clutch holding men appear on the shore, waiting to take you away.
Noob in the land of Gnomes. Noob in the land of Gnomes. Noob in the land of Gnomes.
Picture yourself in a forum of transmissions.
With plastercine cars, and lookingglass Gnomes.
Look to the left and who do you see?
The man with a clutch in his hand.
Noob in the land of Gnomes.
Noob in the land of Gnomes.
