    I'd trade in my EP for a FRS. But I don't need another money pit.

    I hid a tacomaworld business card in the glove compartment when I sold it at power toyota buena park, i hope the new owner ends up on this forum (and waxes her and takes care of her and gives her synthetic oil and washes her :( )

    I just got wincos tint on there for 400$ haha, best tint i've ever had !! The quality is insane!!!! In a perfect world my garage would have my taco and my fr-s. I considered keeping the truck too but a 2000$ downpayment on a 27k car would have payments that raped me in the butt every month

    I don't recall the name of the company that made the hood, but without hood struts it flops all over the place and is very unsafe :eek: i believe it was something like VR-s, that was the prototype carbon fiber hood they made for my friends X-runner that I bought off him... I refused to put hood struts into such a beautiful hood but it felt so unsafe I parted ways with it

    haha trust me it was falling apart, the hid's would go out constantly, the bilstein struts + coils I had were making a god awful squeaking sound, and I had a hole in my ugly tan passenger seat ;)

    oem lights with the reflectors and everything sprayed black, retrofitted projectors in there with the oem housing, it's a pain and i wasn't very good at sealing it back, had no problems with leaks for 2-3 years then it turned into a fishbowl every time it rained
