About

This was my first car, got it in like august '01. It used to belong to my big brother, but he moved and gave it to me. It had like 90,000 original miles on it, pretty good for an '88. Well I barely started getting in to cars and stuff. so ive been slowly modding it and learning fiberglassing and engine work and stuff. I have another Beretta to drive around as a daily so I can work on this once a week if im lucky.

Specs

2.8 127,000
converted to rebuilt 3.1 V6
Automatic

Factory Options

Factory came with all power options. Windows, trunk, locks. Pretty basic, but kind of hi tech back in 88 i guess

Mods

2.8/3.1 swap

12 Piece Predator body kit molded together and to car (still in progess as i make changes)

Interior swap to 91 + (still in progress)

FFP UDP & Engine mount install

WAI, w/ relocated MAF sensor
(ill get a real Tranzgenic when i get it back on the road)

Upgraded Exhaust to 2.5", new CAT, and Flowmaster 40 Series Muffler, souns NICE! Eveyone thinks its a V8.

Custom installed Mercedes S-Class Tail lights

Custom installed BMW E36 headlights w/ corner turn signals

Molded Honda Accord M3 style side mirrors

Rear BERETTA glowing filler panel.

RIMS: MB Motoring Revs Chrome wrapped in Kumho Ecsta 711's

Strut tower brace from a '94 Cavy.

Tons of body mods. Shaved badges, solid grill, molded kit, soon to be relocated gas filler. Working on molded fender flares also.

Interior has JVC cd player, 2 12" Sony Xplods 800 Watts each. 2 Koiler amps (fried) custom installed blue led glowing HVAC knobs, Swapped Z26 seats, swapped rear fold down seats, swapped interior panels to newer 91 style. Soon to be swapped 91+ dash. Once I finish the outside I can concentrate on the interior and im getting everything reupholstered black/white. Exterior will be hi gloss pearl white probably, or a hyper white. I need to check samples. I'm working on glassing some fender flares in too.

Well more mods to come, tons of pics that aren't uploaded.
