New Member From Cincinnati Here!

Hey everyone.

My name is Nick, from the Cincinnati area. I bought my truck from Kings Toyota in February after the transmission in my 04 RX8 Grenaded for the last time. Admittedly I've been lurking for quite some time.

It's a 2005 AccessCab with the TRD Sport Package, SR5, blah blah blah in Silver Streak Metallic.

As of now it's got about 173k miles on it, I bought it with just over 150k

So far, I've wrenched on it quite a bit, Here's what's been repaired/modded since I bought it.

DDM HID's, H4 Hi/Low Kit 55 Watt, 5000k

DDM Kit in 35 Watt 3000k for the fogs as well

Redid the front brakes only to discover a few weeks later I had a stuck piston in the front passenger caliper, so again, replaced the pads and that caliper.

Replaced the water pump...

Bought myself a 40$ CAI setup off of ebay, honestly for the money spent, and my intake temps, and that amazing noise...I feel like I made out like a bandit on that.

Added my Pioneer DEH-8400BH Headunit from the RX8, replaced all speakers with infinity references that were in my room mates 350z(rip)

Plastidipped the front cross bar thing on the front bumper, I was satisfied with the look until I got hit, it was all scratched off :l

Cut out the secondary catalytic converters and welded in a straight piece of pipe, also cut out the OEM Muffler and replaced it with a Thrush Welded

....All in all, I'd guess you could say "Ballin' on a budget."

I look forward to getting to know some of the locals, if there are any haha.

Overall I love my truck, it's been the most reliable vehicle I've ever had. It doesn't flood, it doesn't go through an engine every 100k, along with a transmission, set wiring harnesses aflame. It's great!

Here's a few shitty pictures.

Getting the secondary cats removed




After said intake install




After wash and liquid glass application



Pulling home a buddy's new project.

My room mate and I just plastidipped quite a few parts on his 06 Cooper S. Including interior bits. Gotta say I love the stuff.



Everything you see that's black minus the fender flares used to be white.

Turned out pretty damned good if I do say so myself. Yes, that's me in the car haha.
