i figured that i didn't take a straight booty shot of the IS sooo here it is




TRD style sides and TRD rear bumper add on ordered few days ago , excited so i prepared the paint
ill test fit both and check if the rear add on is leveled with the sides and sides are leveled with the front lip so there might be some modification involved not so hard tho , gonna keep the posts coming :D

update

TRD sides + rear lip arrived , (rear lip was bent , had to git it to the original shape ) used a heat-gun and the polyurethane loved it

test fit :

rear - i need to pull the exhaust tip down a bit or trim the lip to make it fit little bit up

sides - fits perfectly


and painted the engine cover (msm + solar yellow)

here is a pic from my phone camera ( gonna post better pics soon)

Just thought I'd creep your intro page to see what goes on.
I like that sportcross bumper, it looks good. That's what I would have gone with if my car didn't already have the burnout aero package.

sup guys , back once more with a small update

been busy working on my other cars (my STi is now pushing 397 whp) plus some friends project cars m but its not our subject here lol (show off) and i hate to say this but i sold tow of my cars mk3 supra , s14 silvia as much as i loved those cars i had to let them go cant turn down a very good offer , hopefully by time m gonna get my dream car (mk4 supra)

i was thinking of adding a front under-body splitter and side skirts extensions but wasn't sure about that so gie my self a preview :

i installed some universal lip protectors (front + sides) , they were kinda gray color , so i plasti-dipped them Matt-black


other stuff done
- removed the windshield cowl and plasti-dipped it Matt-black along with the wipers
- plasti-dipped the window trims now they look like new also Matt-black lol



- carbon fiber short throw antenna (+5hp)



- dropped the car just a little bit now it sits like the way i want it to be



- ordered a roof spoiler and few extra goodies (quick realse kit , center console LEDs "white" , spiked bolts, clear trunk lights , xkglow under car led kit 3 million colors , shifter and e brake leather boots silver stitched, carbon fiber front lip splitter protector) and maybe that's about it for modding , gonna save and focus on getting a motor to swap m gonna go the 1jz vvt-i route with estimated 350 whp daily driven (no one has done it around my area so ill be the first) hope all goes well with the plans

and i might have to remove some stuff outa my car for inspection next month , so i wont be installing anything until i get done with that shit -.-''


cheers guys

sup fellas

been a while , nce to see more new is owners join the forum.

FINALLY i got done from inspection and registration (took off the whole kit, raised it higher, took light tints off, disconnected halos, HIDs, took off stickers, removed trunk spoiler, put back stock exhaust, painted engine covers in black, removed amp and subwoofer) "i only did all of this so i wont have to go an comeback again to remove anything else) and she passed right away lol , here is a comparison pic on before and after i put her back again




decent difference



i got few other shots as well

roof spoiler - trunk spoiler combo



loved it but m going for another setup (TRD spoiler + HIC usa roof spoiler)
- right now m having trouble fitting the TRD replica spoiler it needs more to do than i expected ''-.- hopefully i can pull it off , fiberglass kinda sucks


also i re-powder coated the hella horns





one last thing ive created a meme of my car and ppl liked it , hope u guys like it as well



cheers
