What did you use to color the front turn signal markers? Very cool look.

yeah they're just springs with adjusters, not 1 piece coilovers. :)
(guess it's just what I've called them haha)
4 Runner was sketch, going 65 in the mid lane of the freeway, and he comes barreling up in my side mirror, swerved out of the way at the last second and he still hit me, could have been way worse lol, luckily one of the guys I was rolling up to Formula D with boxed him in with me until he pulled over.. or he would have just ran..

I don't know how much you're worried about the condition of your paint, but my rear Home Depot lip really messed up the paint on my bumper when I took it off.

not really, but thanks for the insight lol
s-techs lower the car that much? or is it just the lips playing with my eyes
could have gone lower, it's just a hybrid of suspension, the springs that come in the tein 1 piece coilovers and koni yellow sports, but I sold them today and installed megan street series today

I usually hate red wheels... but with the gray and the body line striped I don't think it's so bad. Goodjob. :)
