So I have been on this forum for a while but I have never taken any pictures before. Well I finally borrowed a friend's camera, did a few minor mods, and took some pictures.

Just picked up a set of Toyo Proxes 4 tires for my 18" Exel TZ-10 (hyper black). Tire size is 225/40. Lowered with Tein S-techs. Fenders are not rolled and haven't experienced any rubbing. I plan on rolling them ASAP becuase with a little bit of cargo or a few passenegers it looks very close to rubbing.

I thought that I liked the look of the door guards and the V6 badge so I never removed it but I finally did it and it definitley looks so much better. Very easy mod that everyone should do. Also picked up a set of clear corners from ebay for $40 shipped from user: toys_auto.

Well here is a picture before my weekend of modification. Unlowered, badges everywhere, ugly corner lamps and unclean.

Here are a couple shots after.

System includes the Metra Dash Kit. Sony MP8800 (or something like that) for the head unit. 2 Apline 10" Type-R Subs with a JBL 1200 watt mono-amp. Completely custom enclosure. Suede was used to cover the wood behind the seats. Looks nice when the seats are folded down.

I wanted a pretty clean look when looking in from the trunk. I think I accomplished that pretty well while keeping plenty of trunk space.

Please let me know what you think of it, any comments, opinions or suggestions are welcome.

Hell yeah! I'm really digging the rims. I was thinking about taking the door guards and v6 badge off. After seeing it on another Steel Grey, I'm going to be doing it this weekend. Thanks for the pics!

Thanks all. I live in Warren. Definitley get rid of the door guards, it makes the car look so much sportier. I used goof off to get rid of the sticky stuff left behind just FYI.

As for what is next, I am really tempted to see what kind of deal I could get to trade in this car and get the speed6. If it doesn't seem favorable, I would have to say either leather seats, black euro tails (if we ever get a GB), or if that TC Sportline hood ever comes out I would definitley want that. Also, I have a badgless grille that is waiting to get painted and put on.

Any suggestions for what's next or what you think about what I plan to do?

Well I don't have the receipt for the break down of how much everything I got done cost so I don't know for sure. I think in total it was about 300. It might be for sale actually becuase it wouldn't look right in a speed6 with the brace that goes behind the seats. Would you be interested in the box along with the amp and subs?

I have a pic of the fender gap. The wheels are scratched up pretty badly. A combo of me trying to back out of my driveway quickly and my girlfriend being a female driver :nono:
