Looks great may I ask though why blue fog overlay?
Just wanted something different then yellow. Looks>Function with my Fogs. I've read the yellow is better in actual fog but we don't get much fog if any here in Hawaii so that's why I went with the blue.

I plan to change it later on down the line once I get a few more big mods done. It would probably change to purple overlay as by the time I would change it I would have all my UV LED's in and purple lugs on black rims.

Trying for a Black on White with a Purple accent color scheme

Haven't been able to get pictures up till now and I don't have any good picture of the rims on my car as I've been real busy but the latest update here with Black rims with White center cap. Looking into purple lugs and white caliper. Check the first post for a couple more pics.

Looking good! However, looks like you need some spacers for those rear wheels. Looks weird with them in so much.
Yea definitely looking into them just not sure what size I should get

Anyway here are some better pics of the black rims on the car



I also added some purple trim around some of the interior pieces

Car looks dope with the black rims and the drop! She's a looker.
Thanks man your car is looking good too

Looking real good man!

Keep up the good work, the purple trim is different, and I like that.
Yea I was trying to be a little different with that purple trim, I think it came out real nice.


Just got in some Purple Lugs for my wheels so the purple accent color is coming along. I also just got a MS3 style front lip that I want to sticker bomb before putting it on. And the final thing I ordered was some Rally Armor mud flaps.

So I should be updating with some pics soon I just need to find time to put everything on.

Played around with some plasti dip on the back valance I'm liking it

Damn! Got a lot of parts coming! Should look good!
Yea talk my GF into getting me the SRI early for xmas and then the rest is presents for myself that I also happened to just accidentally open early :p or gifts from family those would be the ones in the mail still.

oh SHIT ....yo said rotiforms!
And yup rotiforms I ordered myself BLQs so those are being made and I am flying to California for winter break to get to the snow so I am going to stop by there place and pick a color.



Anyways SRI is installed. So far just took it around the block and at about 3000 rpm I can start to hear the difference havent gotten to open her up yet though. Pics to come later as of right now I am off to do a little driving.

My SRI finally got the pic up. It was super easy to instal took me about 30min but most of that time was searching for a allen wrench...sigh, but once I got one it took me about 15min a lot of which was tightening the clamps down. Anyway the car pulls a bit harder now and it sounds a lot nicer when accelerating.

Whats next?
Well this coming weekend I have my HID kit, LED Fogs, and Sharkfin Antenna going on.

And right now I am looking for exhaust. Thinking magnaflow or racingbeats still up in the air

Also have to get my calipers painted since I have the G2 kit for that.

If you haven't already ordered your rotiforms you should consider the Super Concave BLQ.... its what I ordered for my 09 18x9+20 I am going for a much more aggressive offset but I think unless you have seen the BLQ and the Super Concave BLQ in person its a tough call. The car looks amazing... i love the graphiti style front lip and your progress.

Keep up the great work.
If I had the money I would but it took me a while to save up just to get the regular BLQs I ordered haha but thanks man i'll be watching your car progress to

Love your car so far! Definitely looking forward to seeing what else you add to it. I was wondering if you would be able to take a close up and maybe a further back straight away photo of the rear end, in particular the valence? For something fairly simple and small I really like the black around the license place area without actually doing the entire rear valence. Also, did you leave it matte black plasti dip or also make that glossy?

Thanks! :beerchug 1:
Yea I can get some pics of the back soon I like it better then the whole thing black its something you dont see often but still looks good. Right now its just plastidip so its matte but I'm thinking of doing a matter black vinyl in place of the plastidip since I dont think I want to go gloss.

awesome definitely looking forward to those. how many coats did you put on? love the look on your car and is something i can actually afford at the moment so is definitely something i may do sometime in the near future
I did 3 light coats on it. Real cheap and easy but still looks good. Sorry for no pictures yet I've been super busy with the first week of my semester. Will get them soon though, I also installed LED Fogs and my Morimoto HID Kit they are way better then stock! And put on my shark find antenna as well as my rear RA Mudflaps so will have updated pictures too.

Ok so its been a while since I have been able to get on here but here is some pics.

HID Install



My back Valance (Sorry its crooked pick)
I am going to be getting this vinyled soon either in flat black like it is or a custom design that i have in mind


Got a banner for my crew and you can see my VG Shark fin


Here she is sitting at wekfest Hawaii this past weekend (Oh and you can kind of see my white calipers)


And now I am really saving toward an air ride kit since I cracked my lip on the roads here in Hawaii and I am not even as low as I want to go so I think air will save me money in the long run.

Beautiful car! Can't wait to see the bagged version of it. :)
Thanks man and me too haha I cant wait to get bags. I know a lot of guys hate on bags and say to keep it static and what not but I really want to go lower and at my cars height now I scrape a lot already since the roads are so bad here and I have friends that are static and lower then me and there cars get worked by the roads so I decided bags are for me especially since my girlfriend and family sometimes have to use my car too itʻll save he headaches.

hey i like swing by pearlz and paint my calipers too lol. Your 3 is fckn sick bro. i'll def help with ideas if you wanna do lights, or painting parts. wish my car was more like yours[hatch xD]. btw you gonna keep the eyelids black? or you gonna match them pearl white?
The calipers are super easy to do. But thanks man I definitely want to paint the interior trim in my car after seeing yours. I never even thought to do that before and yet it makes the car look way better. Iʻll have to try and make a EMP meet if you go to those but i never have time on Saturday nights. As far as my eyelids I think I am just gonna leave them black for now, I have a few ideas that I want to get done first and I will figure it out from there. I might be loosing the headlight overlays this summer for safety check too so that will play into it as well.

Yea we don't meet every single week but we usually meet friday evenings. Brent is one of the main guys, you should talk to him and maybe come out to one of the meets and we can scope out each others cars and get some ideas to help with our builds.
