    I did the same mod. Lasted about a week and I put the OEM knobs back on.
    The eBay knobs don't look as good as everyone says they do. They cover up half of the dial indicators, and looks out of place. And chrome! Yuk! Hate chrome.

    You don't have to prime or paint before wrapping?

    nope... surface just has to be clean and smooth. im planning on having the car painted eventually and if you use aerosol based paint, it ALL has to be sanded off and removed as it wont mix with 2 part paint that paint shops use which causes massive headaches!

    Smoked my tails and installed $5 "nitro tuning" pedals. Gotta be good for some horsepower, heh.

    Does anyone make actual replacement pedals? Or is everything a screw-on cover?

    don't know, what I do know is those covers are coming off asap. Would love actual pedals, I can not reccomend these clip on covers ( go figure) .

    the standard MSP pedals are covers as well, with the gas pedal being screw on.
    Be happy!

    As of Saturday 6/17 I bought my 4th Protege and second P5. It's a laser blue 03 with 219k, the motor blew and has a big hole in the back of the block, and a small one in the front of the block. I paid $400 for it, and the only option it has is leather. Just about every panel on the car has damage of some sort, a fog light and tail light are broken and the interior is absolutely filthy. I plan to swap the motor and get it running, then start cleaning it up and swapping some MSP parts onto it.

    Don't know if I will actually turbo the car but I will install an MSP upper oil pan and oil cooler on the motor so if I decide to turbo it in the future it won't be a difficult swap.

    Kinda happy to have another project to work on, the car is going to change a lot once I have it running. Already have a good fog light, MSP floor mats, door sills, shifter, intermittent wiper stalk, tribute nozzles, M6 rear wiper, new roof racks, better headlights, HIDs, eibach springs, MSP Racingharts, etc to swap in. Also have a catless J/mid pipe, new motor mounts, MSP kenwood speakers, subs, and head unit to install.

    Planning to do a bunch of work on this car, would like to find an MSP gauge cluster and JDM tails for it as well. I have a feeling after driving it around N/A for a while I am going to want to turbo the car, but I need a reliable daily so I will have to think about it.

    Here is the only pic I have so far.

    haha exactly why i picked up a p5. it gets a lot of hand me down parts. although sometimes i want something else, i just keep thinking about how cheap it is to maintain even though it burns a bit of oil.

    Thanks! That cluster only has 144k though. Luckily I found one with 230k that I will swap in once the P5 hits that many miles so it will still be accurate.

    Looking for some roof rack deletes now, and a passenger side leather seat cover.

    Focus now is to get it running, but I'm going to start collecting parts anyway.

    I'm thinking about installing some Speed6 wheels instead of the racing harts. Got plenty of time to decide.
