                  thanks! I need to take it to the car wash soon! I've done a few things and just need to clean my car haha. front lip, emblems all shaved and indents for them filled in and painted, stubby antena, some other stuff too. Just need to take it to the car wash first.

                  • So time for an update, everything is currently under construction, but will be clean when its all done.
                    I am aware that I need to work on sanding it still, need more body and sand paper before I can finish it

                    same goes for the rear end, shaved the emblems, waiting to finish up everything when I have the time and the money for paint.

                    stubby antena

                    and blue calipers... the rims were so bright they made everything look blue, but its actually not

                      • going to order some nice paint and do all the body work my car needs (2 dings). Also going to integrate the rear spoiler into the hatch and the hatch plastic piece into the hatch. Gonna be super clean. Custom paint color to be determined, I am thinking of black with purple fleck.

                        lower and suspension are coming after I buy my new skid pig. Most likely going to be getting a s13

                        • Love your tC! I have an 06! Great fun to drive! I bought mine second hand and as far as i'm concerned, it's all stock (other then some interior stuff I did). Any suggestions as far as performance goes?

                            Thanks!
                            and quaife lsd if you can afford it, don't bother with a cold air intake. Handling is huge, Dropping the ride height of the tc actually will make the 1/4 mile time drop. I'm debating on building this one insanely or selling and buying an NSX. Would ahve to be without a car for a couple of years tho :/ so not quite sure if its worth it, may build this and save for an NSX... only 4 years away or so. maybe less. If I am still in this country.... Joined the air force recently.

                              The Scion is looking awesome. Really diggin' the rims, they're plasti-dipped, right? Also, the iPad mod is great, will need to do something like that myself... maybe with a cheaper tablet.
