Anodized Rays Lug nuts (yes those are chips on my fender...)

OEM Trunk Carpet/mat


Crappy/quick shot of my Carbing Cooling Plate (still trying to decide what to do with it)

That's pretty much it for now. I've been swamped with work, school, girlfriend, and tearing my brothers car apart. He FINALLY realized he's not into car anymore so I've been in charge of removing the turbo kit and putting it back to stock. I'm waiting on OEM injectors/clips and an intake then I just have to throw the stock exhaust and those parts back on. And PRAY there isn't something hacked up from the install that I'll have to figure out.

I still haven't gotten new lug nuts... I keep forgetting about them I'm buying a Karl Sport Shifter. I obviously bought Halo LED's for my license plate. Working on buying Figs hood props and a new ball joint for one of my RCA's. That's pretty much it I think. I bought tires for my stock wheels And installed my HID fog kit, no pics though. I also got my TRD leather shift knob but no pics of that either.

I'm not really sure what I'm doing after those things though...

One thing I do know. My friends 240 is BAD ASS. Period. He finally got things put together enough to drive it and it's insane.

It's pretty much been fully rebuilt. New paint (door jams, engine bay, etc.), all new suspension pieces, VH45 v8, Work Meister S1 3 Piece, OEM aero pieces, blah blah blah. He is running Falken RT-615K tires in the rear... That are 315/xx/18 and he has no traction through third. If I remember right the wheels are 18x10 +18 and 18x11 +18.

If any one is interested in seeing the full build you can go to...
