How it all began....

Stock with 35% tint.




A couple months later i picked up the JoeZ pipe.



I took a long break from modding, but finally decided to change the suspension out with some lowering springs, Stechs to be exact. And with a 5% tint.



And now the latest edition, L-tuned exhaust.





Okay so i havent updated this in a while so here it is.....

Finally made on decision on some wheels, some gramlights! w/ an upgrade on my suspension Fortune Auto coilovers thanks SageAuto!



Shortly after i got rear ended so my taillight got smashed in but luckily i had some custom LED tails lying around to be installed....



Then i pieced together by lip kit....RMM front, RMM sideskirts, and an Ltuned rear (which isnt in the pic) Here is a test fit.




Then i got my hands on one of these, waiting to be painted fully msm...



I then decided to get back into the engine and upgrade my intake to SRT....



I finally got my kit painted and put on... here are some recent shots, hope you like em....

lemme know what you're selling the xerd race pipe for. mine has a little crack that i had welded but i might like to replace it. your ride is looking nice.

Oh, and get the fitment on the tail pipe tighter.

It's the way you mounted your RMM lip. Mine doesn't fall off like that. BTW, where did you pick up the side RMM skirt? Thanks.

Is that a lexus emblem on the gramlights?
Hah yes it is, its the centercaps off of my chrome stockies, i think they flow pretty nicely with the chrome lugs. People always tend to ask about that on the streets.

Very nice man.

Oh yes, satin black w/ chrome rings with 6000k angel eyes, already got the tails done as you can see. Just gota find time :)
