Was suppose to go to an event tomorrow but it got cancelled which sucks, but got a few more things done on the car which is good.

Been working on a halfcage for a while.

  4. car is so perfect right now.

    all you need is ganadors

    i love it

    side clears too awesome

    what size is your rear te’s

  5. Wow nice work on the cage!

    Soooo cool when you make your own stuff!

    I wanna see some action vids!!

  6. GOD

    That Koguchi hood is so cool.

    How does it look when you are sitting in the car and look forward.

    What is behind that “lip” up by the window?

  7. Please, please, please
    colour match the interior to the exterior.

    The whole thing needs to be midnight purple.

  8. Thanks guys, to answer some questions te’s are 17×9 +15 all round, but rear is spacered to +5. BH don’t really notice the lip of the hood too much when driving, its just solid behind it, no vents like d-max etc. been debating whether to go silver or purple inside….hard decisions

  9. Color matched interior just cause that midnight purple is a sweet color to begin with, and I think it would look great with the color on the cage…

    Either color should look fine IMO though..

  10. Your fender pull is so good!

  11. more updates!

  12. I dont mind the Clear Indicators, Where you get them from and how much?

    I really want that Cross Brace!!!
