Carbon Fiber interior looks a little too wild for my tastes, but trunk setup looks sweet. Love the exhaust too. Keep up the good work.

Hey, question? Is that the carbon fiber trim kit from Joshua Tree? How hard was it to do the instrument pod surround. Your thoughts on the option to do an all brazillian wood kit from Joshua Tree instead? Your carbon fiber kit looks great!
I don't think the photos do the kit justice. It looks better in person.

It looks to me in some of the rear pics that you have the body colored tailights. Is this True?

If it is i would like to know where you got them from and for how much?

well ya, no spare anymore guys. but if im just around where i live which isn't a big city its really no big deal. if I go on a trip its no prob just to throw the spare in the trunk..the false floor is very strong and doesn't mess up the sound at all. the speakers have a wire grill on them so they wont get hurt. not sure where the carbon fiber was made, or what kind sorry. im still not sure how much i like that or not. the tail lights are just the stocks though. The whole install was about $500. I thought it was a little much at first but then after I saw how good of a job the guy did and how much time and work he put into it i was very happy with the result. The sound is clean and if I want to it can crank pretty high but I dont really go around boomin to much...i was also going to put just a box back there...but i thought this would be the best way to go and now i believe that to be true...thats if you can live without your spare being with you all the time. (i can, 4 each his own right) later

Thanks for the feedback..

This is exactly what I'm talking about.
Look at that Ugly Dash stick on tape on this Lexus.
What would ever posses someone to put that **** on their dash?

Very Very Ugly!

That Carbon Fiber kit is very similar to mine, there are a few differences around the air control knobs. The single strip that is on your glove box is dead center on the bar above the glove box on mine. I had mine installed by a shop down here in Orange county.

Pretty easy to see in the daylight posts
that he hasn't done anything to the
tail lights. Any time you take a flash
picture, especially from a downward angle,
you'll have light refraction, hence the
blackout look on the pics at the bottom
of the page...
