...but I'm still around. Time for some new pics.
Looks good man, I saw the new pics on cardomain. So, what's new with the car.... other than the pics?
The LEDs and Strobes. I have a new head unit that is video-capable. Going to detail the trunk and put in some video monitors; same with the head rests and sun visors.
You get the OEM tail lights, they look better. Otherwise car is looking great!
Disagree. The orange lenses look hideous with the rest of the car's color. But thanks for the suggestion.
i hate you!!!! im jelly.........seriously jelly
Cbass, thats something YOU would dream about.

I agree with hummer about the tail lights.... you could either red-out the signal, or get the clear signal version.
And i meant should* not demanding lol.
I personally would have picked these tail lights, out of the 2 "ricer" styles.
They go with his red though.
Hmm, I guess it is kinda red.... I thought it was orange darn monitor
just saying that I like this other style of "ricer" lights better.
Hey Salty Dog could you take a picture of the tail lights with the lights on? Also another shot with the turn signal on.
Been wondering about those for a long time now.
NO PRESS, DON'T DO ITTTTT

thanks to Roach for letting me steal his pic. lol
Well my plan was to red the outside out. Which I think would look good. Theoretically.
goggle goggle goggle, roachs car...
Hey, this thing turns more heads than a chiropractor just the way it is. I'm keeping the lights.
Yeah bro, don't change a thing, you've managed to keep it looking clean all these years, major props man.
We were just giving you a hard time anyway

Hmmm, I don't think I've ever seen that done. Perhaps it would look good! Either style should work with a redout.
When I first saw the pics before all the comments I was thinking wow he has some dedication sticking with the altezzas.
It's not how many mods you have or what the mods are. It's all in the execution. Does everything flow? Do the mods complement each other. It requires some artistry and artistic flair.
Some dudes, the Fast and Furious wannabes, put on a big-assed park bench wing, intake, and loud fart can and think "woo hoo I have a hot car." but the combination of all their mods don't go together and the car ends up looking like schitt.
Some people may not like the Altezzas but I happen to think they look better than the OEM tails when the car is taken as a whole; it keeps the color consistent. I'd certainly never put on a set with bright red and chrome, but the smoked ones work. And more than a few car show judges have thought the same way.
When modding, it is not what you do but how you do it and it is better to under do it than over do it.
someone posted a really old ugly pic of my car !
i got plenty more of my car back then
I like factory Tail lights better just mix some black base+clear and smoke em..
lol i seen that after i posted
I see what you did there
Car still looks good, like mack said after all these years its definetly a head turner.
Wow im loving that color combo
You should get the real TRD badge and also just wish the car was a little lower :/ lol
fixed.... well not fixed, but this is also true
OMG!! Who would DO such a thing!!
