nice place to start from - i'd start by removing the "pep boys" accessories (rear spoiler, tail light covers) and picking up some unpainted interior bits at your local salvage yard.

edit: see your list of plans - looks good!

me - '04 Saab 9-3 Aero
her - '95 XJ Country, 235's, BB coming... glorified oem FTW

haha, yeah your right. the spoiler is bolted to the rear hatch. can i remove it without leaving holes in the hatch? The running boards are gonna go too as soon as i get the AJs rails.

since buying it I wanted a better sound. because I'm cheap I went with the Dynomax. It does sound better...just to my standards.

alright the "pep boys" tail light covers are off and the spoiler is off, now all i have to do is cover the holes that the spoiler screwed into. whats a fast, cheap, easy way to cover these holes and still make it look good?

well finally got some plastic plugs with rubber washers to keep the rains out. I installed after applying small amounts of plastic glue to the stoppers to hold in place.


here it is with the removal of the "pep boys" gear

Good start lol. I was gonna say Lowes sells Hillman plugs that you can put in the holes. I had them on my mustang when I took of the spoiler and they sealed up perfectly, didn't even need glue.
