    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.
    yep plasti dipped.... peeled off a lot of it. now it is just a ring around the outer edge of yellow. and I got the ipad (64gb 3g 1st gen) for under the price of a kindle.
    dash is now torn appart. began work on turbo conversion stuff. I have a wideband going in, a oil pressure and water temp guage. not gonna fake boost guage it. or intercooler... strut brace is in. need a new engine cover... let my nephue help me paint the old one. ruined it. getting a carbon fiber one. and cleaning up the engine bay.

    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.

    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

    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

    matte white base coats, until solid bright white. 3 cans all together for all 4 wheels for the white. Then 1 can of blaze yellow per rim.
