JOSEFF's build thread

Okay, I think itís about time for me to start one of these. Iíve had my PW since my senior year in high school in 09í. Definitely been a slow build but Iím in no rush, Iím still young

My car has been through many stages so here we go.

First mods to my car were
- Yakima roof rack
- painted grill dark purple (liked it at the time but not now lol), and a Yakima roof rack. Oh and I put one of those individual chrome letters (the letter ďBĒ) that you can get at kragen or autozone where the oversized scion emblem goes on the front grill.
-ebay visors
-painted stock steelies white and added chrome ring


Got some 16Ē ADRs and painted them gold, painted the grill black, Megan Racing springs and added fogs


Traded the steelies for some 17s and painted tail light covers.


Got a Yakima bike attachment, Yakima basket and got creative with the rims lol


Sold the ADRs and got some BBS RZs


Sold the 17s and the RZs and got 15Ē BBS RAs. Debadged the rear hatch as well.


Photoshoot at school with a friend. Back to back lol
-tien basic coilovers
-15x8 et 35 Work euroline DHs
-smoked OEM headlights (not pictured)
-strup axle back exhaust



AND FINALLY, hereís how its sits today.
Added bb front and rear emblems
Sold the 15s to buy these big dawgss
18x8.5 ET20 rear O disk
18x8.5 ET25 front A disk



Rear cam in place of rear wiper


Anddd there you go. I need to start taking better pics but this is all I have for now.
I still have a lot planned and Iíll keep you guys updated. Thanks

When I had the 15" eurolines I ran with the fronts max dropped and ran with no perches (just springs) in the back.
With my 18s, I had to raise the fronts and add the perches to reduce rubbing.

Wow. That looks awesome.

Do you have a shop class or something? Seems like it would need some special tools.
