Well I'm so happy I finally got my rims mounted
I took some pictures








^^ My speedo and new Gargamel figure ^^

^^ is the rear from top ^^


^^ This is the front over top ^^


^^ here is where I need another 10mm hub spacer ^^

To date the mods I have done are:

Tenzo R springs (2" drop)
Monroe's all 4 corners
Wade Visors
JVC DVD player
XO Vision headrest monitors
k&N filter (in stock airbox)
Custom speedo
Nippon GT-3 rims (stock tires)
OTG rear 10mm spacers

Not to bad for only having the box 7 months. My mods come slow as I am a college student and have a wife and kid.

Just wanted to say thanks to all that have given me info to find parts and DIY's to install everything myself.

Cheers

Gargamel's ride looks sweet. And that's A LOT of mods for 7 months. I haven't even done that much and I've had my car 2 years. Well, I don't have a DVD player.

Thanks for the complements

As for the avatar, I change it every so often when it starts feeling stale. I love the smurf too, hince the screen name :D

Here is some pics of the video setup

The dvd player is hidden in the compartment under the temp controls

and here is a pic from when I first got it and only had the springs and visors installed

I don't have any stock pics as I hated the 4x4 look and ordered spring days after bringing it home :)

cheers

I decided to update this post when ever I do a mod. So here is the lastest

cleared headlights

First step take the box apart


then I used the bake method, super easy. 250 for 10 min and they come right apart. Take orange refector out and back in for 5 min, press and seal. let cool and


after put back on


cheers

I keep going back and forth on clearing my headlights. It does look nice thou.

B-
It is super easy, the hardest part is setting aside enough time. Although it doesn't take that long, 20min take apart, 45min bake and rebake, 20 min put back together.

and if you do the bake method you can always put them back if you need to for some reason down the road. That is why I did the bake method, if I need to sell and put back stock I can. Not that I forsee having to do it even if I do sell it, but you never know.

cheers

Got another mod in the mail today

bb badges



I only am going to use the front one, I just didn't like the look of the stock front badge. I don't like that these are called Scion, I call my box a Toyota

Started building boxes for my subs. I'm installing 2 10" (one in back and one under passenger seat).

Had some free time today and got the back one done


it's just sitting in there right now not hooked up :mad:
waiting on the eDead to come in Thursday so I can lay the mat down and wire at same time.

cheers

got some more work done on the box

finally finished eDead'ing the inside


Just saw that I only took one pic of when the back was done and forgot to take more. I did the whole inside minus the roof and doors (will do more in the up coming weekends). So far I have 100 feet of eDead in the car, double layer in rear and single everywhere else.

It makes a HUGE difference. Before driving down the highway had to turn stereo up to 40~44 just to hear it. Now after the eDead 28~30. Great stuff!!!!
