New Alpine owner in Rochester, MI

Hello everyone, My name is Paul and I have been an owner of an Alpine edition GC for just over a week. I have wasted no time in making modifications to make it mine. So far I have had the roof wrapped in gloss black to match the grill and I have trimmed the dash in real carbon fiber from CarId. I soon will darken the tail lights and add LED bulbs and after modify the exhaust system. I purposely ordered the truck without the pano roof, upgraded audio, tow package and the like to keep the weight down as much as I could. Been lurking on the site for several weeks and I have enjoyed the comments, pictures and advice from you all. They have allowed me to get started making mods quickly and confidently. I take advice well and should you offer it up in the future I thank you in advance.

looks sick, still waiting to see a alpine with 22" fr reps in gloss black. You might be the guy to do it.
