    Looks good. Might I add one suggestion though, I would paint the lip to match the car.

    Not my cup of tea. My suggestion is clean the car and the wheels and you are set to go.

    It would be one thing if the whole lip kit were black and it was just along the bottom but with the curves that come up it would look better painted IMO

    def better than before but could drop the car more. Maybe someone could photoshop the front lip matching the rest of the car and see how it turns out.
    BTW take a side shot to see what the drop looks like overall

    I like the monotone look myself but to each his own. At the end of the day, you have to be happy with it.

    As you can see i removed the junk yard side skirts and front lip, i tucked in the fog lights, added my HIDs whih my head lights are off so you cant see the stockies, but i also have the drop and cleaned it since that last picture was taken.

    ITS a cold air intake BTW.

    Detail the whole car and paint the lip. Then do tire/wheel/brake upgrades.

    just wondering about this, i dont think its a big deal but i noticed when i put on my strut bar every time i pop the hood the hood actually pops up alot higher then it did before, i hit another car several months back but barely did any damage and only minorly bent the hood up, ever since then when i pop the hood it would never pop up i would have to push it up, so is this a bad thing or good?

    Yea i can actually feel it when i make sharp fast turns i get a more immediate response and less flexing when i turn into driveways.

    Well, heres my last piece of toyota candy im adding into the engine bay, its not done yet so it still looks weird;
