This build thread for me is WELL overdue. I have a 2006 TCM xB that I bough used with 15k miles. I have a couple of pics but there have been a few updates since which I will list here.

Exterior:
CF bBist Hood with dual rear facing scoops
CF style front strut bar
CF mirror covers
CF tail light garnishes
Black eBay headlights with illuminated eyebrow and single halo and 6000k HIDs
Black ebay LED tails
15 inch XXR 510's
Black aftermarket grill with painted bB emblem
Painted black rear bB emblem
Misc stickers
Smoked fogs with JDM yellow bulbs
Deleted and TCM plugged rear wiper
TCM painted engine cover with CF stickered VVTI logo from randode (under construction)
TCM painted window visors

Interior:
Amber Oznium LED Floor lights
Amber Oznium LED switch
Amber Oznium LED Rear door light strip
Orange customxbgauge.com LED Door locks
Skeezy Custom Inflatable Toast rear view mirror hanger
TCM painted Boo Boo's (under construction)
bB upper glove box (under construction)
Painted speedo bezel (under construction)
Randode Amber LED O-Sh*t handles(under construction)

Audio:
2000 Watt Sound Storm SSL amplifier
2 Autotek 12 inch 500 Watt RMS subwoofers
2011 Scion Alpine premium radio with stock GPS and Satellite radio addons

(contrary to popular belief those 2 subs and amp combo were AWESOME for the price. I paid around $80 for the PAIR of AutoTeks and about $150 for the amp. I also got my box from another fellow ClubxBer in Tampa/Orlando area in exchange for stock tails (another STEAL)

WOW I didn't even realize I had so much into this until I listed it all. LOL. I know a lot of you will say I need to go lower, and I know I do but if I'm gonna do it I wanna do it right with coilovers and as a college student I don't have $1000 to shell out.I also have a nice dent in the hatch im not happy about but people need to learn not to back into me . Any suggestions, comments and criticisms are much appreciated .

Here is a few more Pics

I also forgot I have a custom CustomxBGauge Orange and black bB gauge face with painted Orange needles. And an Orange Oznium Dome Light. Here are some nightime pics

Last few night pics and BTW my rear hatch LED strip is wired to my old rear wiper switch

These are the ones I ended up going with. I am running 6k HID's in the middle housings. I was gonna take pics last night but I had my bumper off cuz the eyebrow and halo stopped working on the drivers side. I will take pics either tonight or tomorrow.

BTW @ I_Ride_Naked I envy you because I loved going to Muchies 420 when I used to go to school at USF. I would ALWAYS stop on my ride back to Ft.Lauderdale.

Tiens have the best drop for the money you spend but don't go that low. D2DB (dare to be different) coils from scionpro are really nice and are priced relatively nice.

Munchies 420 is the best place I've ever eaten at! I might have to go there after work tonight now that you reminded me lol

Its hard for me to find $1000 to come up with but is definitely next on the list. I never saw those before though and they look the best of the ones I have seen so far.

Yeah last time I went to 420 I was feeling 420 if you know what i mean lol. I still only ate half of that pizza philly they have. My dad took it to work the next day and 2 grown men had to split it cuz it was too big lol.

@ I_Ride_Naked what are you running suspension wise?

I dont leave room for leftovers when I go to munchies. I take the whole thing down in one sitting lol

I've been threw 3 different suspension setups but right now i'm running a manual air kit with Kyb struts, UA front and rear bags, FBI mini rear brackets with 1/4" lines from cliff (bbszero).

Are you gonna enter the show? Im always nervous about entering when I know I'm nowhere near show quality. Everyone was telling me to just enter the show at SR in Jacksonville but IDK if this is a different kind of show.

UPDATES!!!

Here is some other pics:

My CF bBist hood which I didnt have pics of (Please excuse the dirt)

My newly painted boo boos (from chrome to TCM )

My Upper Glove box that FINALLY fits flush after an obnoxious amount of un necessary cutting..still needs a fresh coat of silver trim paint tho. Dupli-Color radiant silver metallic to be exact. (still have to confirm that it matches correctly stay tuned.)

Also a sneak peek of my latest experiment...

Happy New Year to you as well.

Yeah i forgot whos build thread I was the inflatable toast in but I remember them saying something about how during a car show people kept moving the toast all around the car lol. I thought it was funny. So I order 2 originally to keep one and give one to my aunt who drives a Honda Element as a joke. But I got greedy and decided to keep them for myself. I might buy another one to put in the upper glove box to give the idea that its a "Toaster Oven". Probably not though because my mods budget is dwindling.

---------- Post added 12-30-2011 at 06:13 PM ----------

Better yet I might buy one of these for when I wanna use the box as a camper lol. Imagine if it fits lol. WAY out of my price range.

What do you guys think about installing these?

http://www.shop4toyota.co.uk/product...PZ402-00340-ZB

I think they might look cool but idk about the chrome. They are like $25 I might take a shot.

here is a thread from a lexus forum with them installed...

http://www.clublexus.com/forums/ls40...t-hangers.html


those hangers look like a show only kind of mod. but idk they might grow on me.

Thanks it has been hard trying to balance the black and silver. Like painting the sub box silver was a HUGE decision I kept flipping back and forth between silver and black. I am happy I settled on black. Thanks for the complement.

I live in Central FL so for 80% of the year I have no need for a coat let alone a long sleeve shirt or a jacket lol. I thought they might look cool but your point is well taken.

I am also looking for a decent exhaust tip. Nothing too expensive or something too big but something more stylish than the stock one. Also does anyone know how I would go about installing it?
