Default Trav 350 (sliverbullet) build

Picked up a 2006 350. Love the car and how it's a animal yet smooth luxury car with a timeless design. It's a one onwer car that I drove to Virginia to buy then drove it back home.

I don't usually leave my cars stock for long so just want to show you guys the process and growth of the car.

Car came with a few upgrades already installed lucky me where most guy have to go out buy and install these things this cancels out a lot for me. Injen intake. What I believe is a Fsport Exhuast. Full Fsport suspention.. F shocks with F lowering springs and Upgraded rotors brake pads. Car has a new paint job as well.

Car sounds like thunder and handles and drives very sporty with the suspension. I want to look into the ISF ECU for steering feel even tho I like the smooth steering I have.

Here pics before any mods.

Here's a pic of my first "mod"

Painted the calipers. The 350 calipers are bigger then most car so thought I would make them look the part. Later on wiped off the over spray on the brake line and control arm.

I kno alot of people go with colors but I wanted something that was clean and complimented the car sliver was perfect.






Also where I was painting the calipers I took off the rotors and had them resurfaced at Pepboys for the free lol. Good to know people. But I would get crazy vibration when braking, now it feels super smooth when coming to a stop.

Ah, Silver Billet was the nick name of my first hand-built gaming PC. Silver aluminum case with blue cool cathode tubes! LOL!

Nice touch painting the calipers!

Here's another little project I tried out just to see how it would look.


I always thought it look cool when race cars and drift cars had the tire name painted. Gives a nice little detail





I'm not completely done I have more to fill in but this was just to see how it would come out. I like it so far

Looking good so far. I always wanted to paint the logo on my tires like that. The original F Sport exhaust (with no logo on the tip) was made by HKS.
