I dunno if any of you have heard of Scion Communities. It's a nice website that's slowly growing every day. Come on over and join us, it's not a bad place, but it does require you to speak with owners of the beloved xA owners and the monstrous tC fans...Anyways, onto this post.

There was a contest going on back when the site first started, and it was known as the "Customize yourself Giveaway!" promotion. Well, I won something. Yay! I just received the email yesterday, and as you can tell, I don't check my mail daily.... Maybe I should?

Here's the email they sent me.

Congratulations Chris,

You are the winner of a Under The Hood Mirror kit from
UndertheHoodinc.com. To claim your prize simply email us back to
confirm your shipping information, we will have UTH drop ship the
mirror
set directly to you. Please visit their website underthehoodinc.com to
see available colors and options and please specify that when you email
back. You will have 1 month to claim your prize other wise it will be
forfeited. Congratulations once again and thank you for being a part of
ScionCommunities.com!

I dunno. I was gonna wait for my mod lady (ally, my girl, her xA is getting dropped on 210's tomorrow yay!) to come home and we both decide together. Since my car is blue, and I wanna keep to that 'theme' so to speak, I was thinking maybe a blue tint on the mirrors. That's me though. I could also go smoke, because it's 'neutral' and goes with the blue. If it did come down to it, just regular clear mirror and a silver border....I dunno, I've never really won anything exciting, nevertheless, a part for my car, so it's an overwhelming experience for me.

What I do like is that it'll help out with people who don't wanna lean over my car and see the DC sports header. LOL

Yeah, I'm on there. I've got about 15 posts or something. I don't frequent the site often because no-one's over there. It's still a growing site, as it just started This year. Yes, it's been around for awhile, but open registration just happened. Give it time, it'll grow, and hopefully not be like other all scion sites.

Well, just wanted to give an update to the peeps! They're here! The mirrors, they're here!! They came today while I was at work. Anyways, If I have time this weekend, I'll be glad to install them and take a buncha pics. We've got a VERY busy weekend ahead of us, so they might not be installed, but we'll see.

I can't get the mirrors in. They go behind the ribbing of the hood, and we can't seem to separate the 2 pieces far enough to slide the pieces in. As soon as I find out how much they cost, I'll be putting them up for sale on the classifieds.

Dammit, and I really wanted these in, not gonna spend the cash for them to be installed.... Anyone that's interested, and has better tools, please lemme know.

What kind of adhesion do they use? I always thought they fit just inside each little section and were stuck to the liitle lip that defines the cutout shape.

PM for a price if you end up selling them!!!!

see how cool-b's fits. just kinda lays in the recessed area. Doesn't look like his slides behind anything. Got any pics of your install?

No I don't have pics of the install because they're not installed. They fit behind the ribs, they don't just lay in like that, if they did, I'd have them installed. There's absolutely nothing on the backs of these, you're supposed to use 3M double stick tape and 3M DP-100 (or damn near close to that number, we have 90 here) for the full adhesion.

Looks like we're gonna see if the auto merge function works here for me. Anyways, I just wanted to say that if anyone is interest in trades as well, I'm in the market for these items:

Used Blitz Nur Spec axle-back exhaust (must be in good shape)
Blue underbody LEDs (used are fine, as long as all led's and functions work)
CF dash applique, again, used is fine, as long as it is practically mint

When I get the price for the kit, I'd have a better idea what a good trade is, so if you are interested and have stuff you would like to trade for a sweet hood mod, lemme know. That means, send me a PM please.

Just email the people over at SC, let them know what's up. Find out what the dillyo is on their end, and get then email your peeps and see what's up and all ish will get worked out, that's how I had to do mine.

Hoping you had a pic of just how they're suppose to fit. I haven't taken the insulating cover off from my hood yet, so I can't totally picture the ribbing they fit under. What color did you go with, and did you get the trim also?

I went with light blue, no trim. I couldn't find anything that sat well with me and the light blue color.

Anyone that's doing blue as part of their color scheme will love these. I'll get pictures of the kit today when we get home. I've got a barbecue to attend, visit a sick/dying grandpa, and a few other things on my plate today.
