Nice. One suggestion...Randode sells an awesome overlay for the engine cover. You might want to repaint the cover all white and then order a blue overlay for it. It would make the blue look much sharper.

http://randode.com/store/product19.html I think they're like 5 bucks.

It looks good...i though about painting the letters, then covering them with tape cutting with a x acto, then painting the rest...

Speaking of painting...is there actually TCM in a can? Because i'll be doing mine, either my accent color or stock TCM......ir maybe i'll take it and get it airbrushed...

Thats exactly how I did mine, it takes some time with the x-acto though. It turned out really well and has held up really well.

Here are the photos(don't want to thread jack)

Cleared the wifes the others day, its easy and looks nice. I think the amber turn signals are brighter without the reflector.

You can find all the stock Scion paint colors at www.paintscratch.com I've used them and it's a nice match.

Get some pics when you're done, that will look sic! It is a good size can, you can get all different stuff too, pens, touch up and cans of paint for using in a sprayer.
