Hey Flexin

How much did it cost to get your roof done by Pro Vinyl?

Some new pics, recently had a big audio setup put in.. all rockfords ( 2 x amps, 2 sets of 6.5's splits, 2 sets of tweeters, and 2 x 12" p3's in a custom ported box )
painted the calipers blue also added the trd vinyls, plasti-dipped the front and back toyota badges, added the little trd badge underneath the shift knob panel, installed the drl vent lights with the open cutouts, plasti-dipped the leds with black, i lose some brightness during the day but when it gets darker they are bright as fk,.. that's it for now.. future mods.. might take off the plastic sub frames and plasti-dip them orange to go with the inside, will be getting a new custom exhaust put in within the next couple months, a new setup to reduce the massive scraping i get from the hotdogs i have on now.. that will be it till i think of something new ;P

Looks so clean :) FYI Flex saw your car again on the weekend :P me and a mate decided to go by Paul's Famous Burgers and there she was parked a few blocks away. Had to do a double take to make sure :P

hey flex, i had a look at those LED puddle lights. I see there are existing holes(per say) on the underside of the sideskirts, how do you get to to those from the back/inside though ? for the wiring and such.

Lol that's mad, i live around the area.. i hope the car looked washed lols.. it tends to attract alot of dirt.. the burgers arn't bad aye

Can't wait to see your box next month dude when I'm up there....

Yeh Chris, should be good meeting new people.. getting all the toasters lined up, sex :D

Hey brother, we ran it through the wheel archs and back into the engine bay, if you message the guys from LEDMOD, they should be able to assist you with installation photo's and some sort of installation manual in writing, it's not that difficult, you just need to get your head around it first.. the good thing is that we have the stock side skirts, so you can use some of the exisiting grommets to place the leds in there,your wont need to drill / use the mounting brackets provided.

Sup guys, Yet another update.. i cut out the blinds grill down the
bottom and put some mesh in and color coded it white, also got the
honeycomb grill color coded white and the backing of the badge also
white, ( and sprayed the toyota logo matt black as you see via the pics
), i also threw in some photos of the trd brushed aluminum car mat logos
i installed on the mats, which gives it a nice oem look, they are great
quality and look very sleek in person ( ebay ), that's it for now, on
the weekend i got some vinyl cutouts from 5zero4 designs which i will
install,

here's the new look of my rukus, with a camo inspired appearance.., i
got this done @ carbon demon, Mike is amazing and very talented, he
exactly knew what i had in my head and how i wanted the shapes and
contrast / tones, he used matt black, matt silver, and matt dark gray
& with that said he made sure the whole car had a flow effect as you
will see via the pictures, its very random and at the same very
intricate.. the roof i got rewrapped in matt black, i only got it back
today and the car is definitely more of a head turner than it was
before!, i wanted something different and it exceeded my expectations,
ill post some proper pics once i get the car washed etc! more mods to
come..
