Ok, about the VIN plate. It is indeed attactched to the junk plastic dash. I have called several body shops, the state BMV and the State Highway Patrol (who is ultimately responsible fore vehicle inspections in Ohio). I am supposed to call the state patrol again tomorrow morning to get an official opinion on how do do the VIN (special rivets, documentation, etc...). I will post the outcome.
WBodine, thanks for the opinion on the LMC cap, I will deffinately keep it into consideration.
Sk8noregon, I am just planning on doing the underside of the dash, although, I had never thought of the carbon fiber. That would give a pretty cool look! I wanted to keep it looking factory and not interfere with the passenger side airbag. Ill have to do some thinking lol.
Thanks for all the input, Ill keep everyone posted.
