Been MIA for a while. Most of you don't know but, I bought a new Solara a month ago on February 26, 2014. Everything that was on the Black Solara was swapped over.
Image

As you all may know, I owned a 1999 Toyota Solara since 2009. Within a year it has made progress and just recently I have upgraded to a newer one.
Link to the 1999

ImageImage

My New 2000 Toyota Camry Solara 5Speed with 89K. Everything on the car was changed. Timing Belt, WaterPump, Coolant flush, New Radiator Hoses, New Clutch, etc.. The interior still smells brand new after so many years.
The day I brought her home. All Stock.
Image
Few hours later swap the H&R Trac 20mm Spacers with extend bolts and put on the TRD Revos 17x8 40+ all around. Also, took the TRD Front Strut Tower Bar.
Image
Image
Swapped the Renova Grill and Roof Racks.
Image
Installed a spare grill on the black car and kept the mint chrome grill from the silver.
Image
Next day Swapping over the Greddy Evo II Catback Exhaust and swap the black housing corners.
Image
Image
Bought this from Greg. TWM Short Shifter. Made a huge difference. Also, Installed the CP-E Intake from the black car.
Image
Image
Image
Next Day I stripped the TRD Kit from the black car and prep it for the silver car. Did a little Debadge on the trunk.
Image
Image
Next Day Burrowed a buddy Fender Roller and Rolled the Rears.
Image
Image
Got the Rear TRD Kit on.
Image
Later that week got the rest of the TRD Kit on and the TRD RSB. Huge difference with the TRD RSB.
Image
Had to swap over those unique FogLights.
Image
Black Solara is stock now, minus the TRD Drop.
Image
Plasti Dip the bottom grill black similar to Brian Car and switch the plates on to the new car.
Image
Something still didn't look right up front. So I decided to wrap the OEM Hood Deflector with the digital urban camp wrap that I had on the side.
Image
Image
More Debadge and removed the clear protector by the bottom of the door.
Image
Image
Looks much better.
Image
Getting my Safety Inspection done and got the LFA Rims back on.
Image
Later that day after I passed. It got Slammed... And how it currently sits.
After less than a month of owning the car it made a huge and quick transition.
Offset is everything. 8) 8) 8) 8)

Looks like the promise I made when I first bought the car is true. Will be giving the black Lara to my younger brother. Stock except for the HID and TRD Drop. haha

That's the beauty when you purchase the same car and have some spare parts laying around. 8) :drinking:

Reason the fronts a little higher is so I could drive into my driveway; which is on a hill. :-?

Still have the Black Lara decided to keep it for a little longer. But, planning on trading it for a Gen4 Camry.
Image
Image

Just a little update.
Last year I entered my Black Lara which was my first Spocom and this year I entered my Silver Lara which will be my last on Oahu. Moved back to Maui on September 30, 2014 and both cars was shipped.
The few weeks before Spocom Oahu I was preparing the car for Spocom. Change some few things like removed the sticker bomb on my roof rack fairing, swap out my hood/trunk from the black Lara, Custom Molly Design vinyl on the side of the car and got some Rotora Big Brake Kit from Greg.

The Car Before Spocom.
Image
Fairing getting Wrap.
Image
Rotora Big Brake Kit Installed.
Image
Image
Now to add some Strips.
Image
Little Photoshoot with my crappy phone the night before.
Image
Image

Spocom on August 24, 2014 on Oahu.
Image
Image

Sunday, September 29, 2014 My Friends decided to pay for me to go SCCA for my First and Last Time on Oahu before I fly out the next day and ship the car back to Maui.
Image
Image
Image
Monday, September 30, 2014 Drop my Car off at the harbor on Oahu and caught the flight out after that.
Image
Tuesday, September 31, 2014 Moved Back To Maui and just picked-up my car at the harbor.
Image
Image

Car is Finally back to its former Glory. 8)
