I just got myself an 06 XB with about 240k miles, it's an automatic, and I love it. Somewhere down the line I want to make it a project car or something. I'm 18 and relatively new to car stuff(other than maintenance). Just lookin for a little guidance

Everything on it RIGHT NOW(with exception for rotors and brake pads) was on there when I bought it.

I'd like to point out that it's currently my daily driver, so right now I'm just looking at cosmetic fixes, like getting rear trim, paint correction, etc. I kind of want to paint it black, just cause it's simple and slick. I want LED headlights and taillights, but at the same time I don't want to be THAT guy and blind people on the freeway. The reason I CHOSE this car was because it's roomy, has great gas mileage, and it has a hatchback.

To put it shortly, 🎵I want to paint it black🎵, fix the trim (or make it look good without it), and EVENTUALLY make it more zippy.

Sounds like you have a good plan; definitely want to to complete all exterior trim and other repairs before painting it. There are myriad pictures on this site to view as motivation; and a lot of current LED mod information. Some Gen1 OEM accessories, and aftermarket parts, are scare now, but there are lots of used parts in good condition. Facebook has a good thread focused on used Scion parts.

Post update pictures as you make progress; especially when you paint it black. 🎵 I wanna see it painted, painted black. Black as night, black as coal. I see a line of cars and they're all painted black 🎵
