Wash your car. lol.

What is your suspension setup? It looks like you're dropped in the back but stock in front, or maybe you've got a heavy ass sound system in the trunk and still stock suspension?

You should roll your fenders and add some spacers before you paint your car.

Keep updating us on the transformation.

I'm on Tokico HP and Tein S-Techs. It's lowered 1.5 front, 0.6 rear, but for some reason, the rear seems lower, but it's really not much different from the front. I think it's because I took the picture when I had my old tires in the trunk still. lol

I don't think I need to roll my fenders unless I opt to go coilovers, because with my current set up, I don't need to roll the fenders, but for sure I'm going to invest on some tuner spacers and studs later on.

Haha, no, I meant wheel spacers. Looking at the ones from Project Kics.

Finally got the door molding painted and fitted.

Finally decided to install the TRD FTB. Had trouble before with one bolt. Stripped it completely, so I couldn't install it then, so what do I do? Impact hammer it out? Nope. Get a industrial-rated crescent wrench the size of your forearm, and clamp it tight and start pulling the bolt out as if you can't wait for your girl to take off her panties.


End result? Me 1, Bolt 0.

Got the exhaust and Whiteline sway bar installed. I'll post up video of the exhaust soon.

Due to the crappy audio mic on the camera, the sound is better in person.

Your build is coming along nicely especially considering the state of it when you first received it. I believe there was a tutorial on TN explaining how you could swap out the antenna on your car for I think either a Celica or S2000 antenna. The antenna looks kind of akward so a swap might make it look cleaner.

That's on my to-do list as well, but it's not something important as of this moment. Thanks!

Very Clean. It's crazy how you took it from a bit grungy, to clean and lowered. Its like a brand new car.

I installed my new bumper that I worked on. I'm currently liking it how it looks but I think I'll do some further sketches to see if it'll look cleaner with the outer sides of the air dams went straight down or at a 120 degree angle instead of the 80 degree it's currently at. I'm also going to install some LED DRLs at the outer sides of the air dam.
