Thank you . I'm in between wheels right now. I'm looking at those 18in equips from db8 but I hate chrome. I'm also looking at the 17 equips and the 17 ssr koenigs, but I feel 17s with the vertex kit might make me to low. I can barely get in and out of my neighborhood as it is....

Well the world is changing, and as the world changes I decide to change too.

I love the vertex kit but I've decided to take it off for a little while, for a couple reasons. One I'm waiting on my Jdm rear to get here so I can actually complete the kit, two the side skirts are cracked in multiple spots that need repair, and three the skirts bow out like wings and make my car look like its going to take flight (its not that bad). So now I'm just gonna rock the stock bumper with my trd rep lip and smile as I barely graze the speed bumps adorning my neighborhood.

Last pics of the Vertex



My first roller shot haha





I also got rid of the Plastidip on the wheels, and I forgot how fucked the rims are underneath . I debadged the trunk and took the vht off the tail lights. Almost scored a free set of SD tail lights at my dealership, got too excited and overlooked the fact that it had two different ones :/.

Don't mind the leaves, it was pouring outside.




Also took the plastidip off the grille and shot it a satin black. Looks wayy better, I originally did the emblem in all white which looked awesome (5 ft away).


And lastly I cleaned my air filter and decarbed my intake.



And wheels are paid off next Friday! Then I wait 2 months for them to get here . So excite

Besides that I'm working on getting toe links to fix my wacked alignment, black tails, r154, and after thats squared away booooooooooooooost.




Also in the middle of a lost claim with greyhound express, which I will NEVER use again, and highly advise doing the same. They are the most unprofessional people Ive ever dealt with. If you do decide to use them google "greyhound express lost packages" then decide, also it would fine to ship items that are worth under 300 dollars because supposably thats all they reimburse which is not going to be the case for myself once I get Johnny Law involved....

Cleaning up well sir!

Too many people try to impress others and build their car to what they know someone will like.
You lose sight on what you like, when you simulate your likes around others dislikes.

Small update
-ABS light comes on and off throughout the day. Tried reading the code at work and as soon as plugged in the diag machine the codes cleared so now i have to wait til tomorrow to see whats going on.
-Bought vht red out 15 dollars?!?! Came out pretty good though.





-About to pick up an R154 with the 1/2jz bellhousing, driveshaft for the is300, clutch and flywheel. For a AWESOME price. Then ill have to start parting up, and I will be asking ridiculous amounts of questions sooooo yeaaa.

Tis all for now

Quick question. Last time, i think I may be right.
17x8 +36
17x9 +36
May run a 10 mm spacer on both.

Tire sizes I'm looking at
F 205 40 17
R 215 40 17
Or
215 35 17
225 40 17

I'm already stupid low so I'm not looking to tuck rim, especially 17s and vertex kit. Just a wee bit of poke in the front and rear.

Thanks, much love

I see no lack of high quality parts on my car, except maybe the fake trd lip.
I would not put shitty parts on my car and for the most part I do all my own work.
As of yet I've had no need to bring my car to a paint or body shop.

I am however a firm believer that one does not have to spend thousands of dollars on parts (with exceptions of course). Used parts all day everyday.

But thanks
