Default Stevoe88's Small build thread

Car was bought in 2009 after I sold my S2000. I modded somethings here and there to satisfy my modding addiction but nothing major. I've been in school for a year without a car due to the fact that I live on campus and had no need for a car. 2011 is here and I finally drove my car down to sunny San Diego. Some of you may know me through s2ki or here on clublexus as I have made it out to some of the meets but lost interest after moving to SD for school. Well the mod bug has bit me again and a new build is here for 2011. I also got into an accident when I came back home for winterbreak last year and ended up messing up the front end. After LOTS of headaches and knuckle busters, I've almost finished up the car with minor things left to do here and there.

In 2009

Some past set ups, some decent, some fail.

Kept it stock for half a year, but couldn't stand the 4x4'ness so got some springs and an HKS Hi-Power exhaust

Fail fitting takata TE37's. Yes, they were real ....

Sold the TE's ran stocks for awhile, cut my eibach prokits at Sonic MS and got a oem IS-F rear bumper.

Then wanted some wheels again, picked up a set of Linea Corse Lemans in Hyper silver.

After this, I sold the wheels and moved down to San Diego for school, and haven't been in the car scene (physically, still moped around the forums) for about a year.

Then I came back home and did this to the car.

Then another four months went by, and I brought the car down. (Pic above is after I brought the car down, my brother drove it like that while I was at school).

Picked up parts:

I got rid of the IS-F bumper and got a OEM bumper again.

My wheels are up for trade for a set of 19's, let me know. Tires are brand new, wheels are also brand new, they have been on my car for less than 40 miles. I want to go more aggressive, but need a smaller wheel diameter. I will entertain all offers.

Thanks for everyone who's helped me over the past month or two on the boards
