Got this:
Compression pressure:

1,226 kPa (12.5 kgf/cm2, 178 psi) or more

Minimum pressure:

981 kPa (10.0 kgf/cm2, 142 psi)

Difference between each cylinder:

98 kPa (1.0 kgf/cm2, 14 psi) or less

See that was the best part, I had a guy paint it for me for no charge. I had one of my dads friends gonna paint it but then there was a conflict drama drama drama, do my girlfriend pulled some strings and asked a guy that's a painter at a autobody shop that she did work experience for and may go back to work for to paint it. So labour was free! And my girlfriend and I did all the prep work and bondo and sanding etc! Do that was free! Aside from materials! And the paint was only 350$ and I have lots left over! I ordered 1 gallon of paint, 2 quartz of primer and then te hardners and reducers. So I have lots of paint to paint the body kit once I get all the pieces together! :) was also thinking of painting some rims for a different vehicle with my exess paint once I'm all done lol! :)

And yes my girlfriend of a month is totally into vehicles and is gonna go to school to me a mechanic / body repair and painter! I love how we both have a passion for vehicles..... Hers is more old trucka though and I'm all about new cars! :P

so i was thinking of making a new thread but i thought id ask here in my own thread about my camry first.

so the dash cluster..... kinda looks like crap aside from my led's. aside from the ebay chrome trim and reverse glow is there anything else i can do? i kinda wanna change the needles. i really like the Lexus ISF needles and if i was able to find some do you guys think its possible to change them out? if they are the same size? cause my car theme is white, black, chrome and blue and the yellow needles dont really do....

what about painting them? how would i go about that if possible?

sorry for possibly a dumb question but i pay attention to all the fine details!
