        I have projectors now.... a week after I got the HIDS in the stock lights...
        also, scions stock wheel studs arent long enough to safely install aftermarket rims, so new extended studs ordered. A week from now... the car will look great. Gonna repaint the calipers while they are off. thinking purple or blue, maybe white. Input forumers????

        • I have a Uv purple theme going on and I plan to paint them a purple. Any color works really.

          • Just read through your whole build thread. Seems as though we share a fondness for anodized purple lug nuts and other purple details. I dig it; keep up the good work!

              not a fan of them right now since they destroyed my studs. but that is my fault. I couln't tell they were barely on before... maybe again someday. they are also toast... and purple is great! but I'm thinking of shaving the emblems off the trunk, or getting a carbon fiber one so there goes any purple I had really... and I decided on Blue caipers. Think it will go well with the blaze yellow rims! can always strip and repaint if I feel the need! Can't wait for stance! Moving is my first priority before mods.... which is very weird for me to say. Also feel weird saying today, I was sad to buy car parts.... both times. The first time because they were OEM parts. The second because I have to get them a second time!

              • I feel you there dude, it always sucks to have to buy parts to repair rather than modify. What OEM stuff did you have to get?

                  bought OEM studs and lugs then found out why they did what they did, so now I have 20 studs with no purpose, that hopefully I can return. Will keep the lugs tho, since the old ones are trash. Ordered 50mm extended studs online, stock is 40mm... so should be enough to securely install the lugs and not have to worry about wheels flying off.... on the bright side, can clean out my brakes while they are torn appart fixing studs. All with a broken left arm. yep.... commitment.

                        • I've been wanting to mess around with plasti-dip myself, but it's hard to find such supplies in a small town.
