Wheels, tires, pillar gauges, grill guard, 6" Hellas. All thing that would be period correct. Hell, my fender flares are dealer option.

Nice. Iíve done a lot but one thing I wish I could figure out is a better sound system without seeing anything. Iíve replaced all the blown speakers with the same sizes so I can still use original grills. Iíve also put in an older Altima tape/cd player so I could add Bluetooth and usb to the cd changer port but still have the old school look and functionality.

Know of any unique ways of getting just a little bass in there and still look stock?

Just do a little sealed sub and hide it.

I did the lego wheels, power mirrors w/ defrost, power windows, pathy grille/headlight, started to add cruise control but never got the module, 240 intake swap, fog lights, to name a few.

Your grille guard from the 90s?
Canít find any old ones. Might have to settle for the ARB

It is a dealer option grill guard off an 89 Pathfinder.
