Here are some pictures of the TYC JDM set I have. You can see the outside corners follow the curve of the rest of the lens' face. The USDM lamps have raised corners to accommodate the amber side reflector. The reflector is not used in this TYC model. I am converting them from LHD to RHD for US roads, but still have not finished. I bought Ray's FFF almost five years ago to use with the lamps and never had time to install either.

ser_dad bought the FFF two days ago and he is almost finished installing it. He also is making the FFF work beautifully with USDM headlamps. Very clever modification!

Yes they are, I would have got them but just can't pull the trigger due to buying the FFF and other stuff from Frank.

Re: What did you do to your xb today??

Removed my TRD lowering springs. My daughter will be using the xB for a couple of years, and the stock springs will work better for her and for the grandchildren.

I have completed only the rear springs. Amazing height difference between the TRDs and the stock springs, as shown below. Of course, the springs will settle some.

Now the car is sitting on jack stands waiting on dust seals, isolators, and strut bumpers. I special ordered the parts today after searching online and speaking with twelve dealers and checking with two Toyota regional warehouses. I am surprised they are not common dealer stock items. I hope this does not portend what the parts availability will be for the xB.

I decided to loan the xB instead of giving it to my daughter. Although it will be registered in either her name or her husband's name, it will revert to me if they elect to replace it. It is tough to part with this car; I planned to never sell it even though it had become a spare car last year. This way I will look after it and still make some changes to it. Plus anytime I visit Kentucky, in addition to family, I will see the xB and will perform maintenance on it. No dealer has touched my xB except for warranty and the first three oil changes they gave free back in 2005 when I bought it new.

As you saw when you picked up the FFF, I have several mods yet to complete.

Thanks Ray! You are being kind; and in light of the radical mods you perform, a compliment from you is noteworthy. I am surprised you would like a stock height given your xB can touch the ground when you lower it.

Fair question. I was considering replacing them with some 15" wheels to gain some sidewall height like on the original P185/60R15 tires. I would love to locate some Scion EM-7 wheels, but also have been looking at other 15' wheels.

Re: What did you do to your xb today??

Now that I worked on the tranny, my daily is running good.

Had a late night last night. Was still in the garage until 12:30am with the project box.

Stripped the whole interior completely naked. Had my stereo guy at the house installing my alarm with remote start and getting all the door poppers running from the alarm remote.

Started to mask out the hole for the ragtop. Its a huge frickin' hole. Almost the whole damn roof. Gonna cut it first, clean it up, the sound deaden the thing.

The line on the roof looks crooked because I **** the picture in wide angle to get the whole roof in the shot.

Myopic, I know how you feel. Wife is pretty much forcing me to sign over my RS2 to my son. Too many vehicles. But he learned to drive in it, went to college in it and now carries my grand baby in it. Will try to keep it running so she can have it when she gets her license. But that will be a while.
