    Not the best at documenting things except for IG and Snapchat so bare with me...

    Preferably I would like to have the photos taken with my DSLR but cellphone photos will be the main source. DSC_9253.jpg
    The start. Stock...all stock. I think in this photo the interior trim pieces were upgraded to black if I'm not mistaken.

    Went with SSR Wheels 19 inch Professor TF1 in Super Black Coat (SBC) with Gold Bolts.

    Quality hub rings ordered through SSR Wheels. If you look closely you can see the machined grooves throughout the rings.

    Deciding on what center cap to go with since I'm pretty indecisive. (Went with the one in my hand to match the step-lip).

    Falken Azenis. Thank you again Falken Tires.

    Lowered on Revel Coilovers by Tanabe. They can go lower but I'm good. As for the hubcaps after losing two of them I decided to just take them off.

    AirRunner kit has arrived. I will be running the manual paddle switches with Airlift 3P management.

    Tires finally mounted and wheels (faces and inner barrels) ceramic coated. Forgot to bring my center caps but they should be coated eventually.

    OEM fog lights ready to be installed. McGard gold lug nuts that I'm hoping will complement the wheel bolts.

    That is all for now.

    Car is currently at AirRunner getting suspension installed. It'll be close but it will (should?) be at Wekfest, Los Angeles with AirRunner. Plans are to have it at Nisei with JunProject as well. It won't be pretty but it'll be there.

    If you would like the Revel Coilovers let me know.

    Thank you AirRunner, Falken Tires, and SSR Wheels.
    I'd also like to thank those who'v paved the way and chose a platform less taken. You've all been an inspiration to me and motivated me to do it and to come correct.

    Thank you for looking. I'll try to post more as photos come and things change.

    It would be interesting to do a mod and then test the mpg and see the difference. If I knew the consequences of some of these modifications were null, I would definitely be interested.

    Wekfest L.A. 2018

    Before doing anything I spoke to those who had air suspension, big wheels, audio, etc and picked their brains a little on how much MPGs are affected. There are ways to counter it such as driving in Eco Mode (which most already do) but in the end it's really depends on the person and if they're willing to lose some MPGs for some styling features.

    That was never the plan, haha. I saw one in Japan and it burned an imaged in my head and that kept me driven towards building my own.

    I'll try and get more unclose shots later on.

    It can, but not much more with the wheel and tire setup or maybe with arms added.

    Don't want to say the exact price but I'll say between 5k-8k installed to give you an idea. Price varies on on the components chosen and of course installation setup.

    Thank you. I try to keep them clean but that's impossible...haha.
