It seems more and more are starting to do this headlight mod, including myself! Looks great along with your HIDs!

What brand and where are your strips from?

And I just noticed your grill lighting, not too bright, looks perfect to me! :thumbup:

I dont have HIDs, but thanks anyway. The strips are from amazon.com (http://www.amazon.com/White-Style-Flexible-Headlight-Strip/dp/B004HPWFA2/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1301240498&sr=8-2). The quality of them is excellent. I've seen some where the clear coating over the LEDs is uneven and just feels cheap. i highly recommend these.

I'm loving the look of the duckbill on TB. Your pics made up my mind on getting it

I love the duckbill. You gotta go for it. And WTF is going on in your avatar LMAO

Duckbill looks great!!

Thanks!

Just installed my boost gauge today. It was pretty easy for the most part.

I didn't want to have to drill or cut any factory interior pieces (or spend almost $100 on a pillar pod) so i got a cheapo pod for $10 that's held on by double sided tape.

Off:

On (it doesn't look that bright but i'll get some night shots later):

Ordered my wheels today!!!

Enkei Kojin 18x8 in Black

I originally ordered the EDR9 from tire rack but they were out of stock and it was gonna be like 3-6 weeks to get them all the way to germany so i cancelled that order and got these. I've always liked open 5 spoke wheels and the one ebay comapny wanted $500 to ship 4 Tenzo Tracer wheels from cali to Germany. Tire rack is only charging me $75 shipping and i wont have to buy lugs (for now) or hub rings. So im glad i paid the extra money to buy from TR. The Kojins are new for 2013 so not many people should have them yet

PS can a mod rename the thread title to "RalliArtist's Build/Progress Thread"

So i got my wheels in on monday (Enkei Kojin 18x8 +45, $971 shipped) and added a red lip so they look like this:


EBF5FDE7-7182-4196-8625-3F628EC6C44D-863


Then i ordered some ralliart decals because i ultimately want the wheels to look like the Ralliart R-01 wheels


577293F8-8566-4AAA-B0DB-9928B6DBF27D-863


Then today i ordered new tires, General G-MAX AS-03 (225/45/18) for $677 shipped


ge_gmax_as03_ci2_l.jpg


then when the wheels are being swapped i'll probably paint the calipers red

thread title had a different name until i asked a mod to change it, so it may have gone unnoticed.

also wanted to add i'll be picking up a set of these to go with the wheels:

Just a few updates:


Red pinstripe on hood was removed.


Got 3 parcel notices on my PO box. Hopefully my stickers for the wheels and brake pads.


Ordered LICP from Ultimate Racing today


Coils probably in 2 weeks.


Then do some maintenance things to get the car ready before i deploy to the sandbox for 6 months (xfer case/diff fluid changes)


When i come back in 6 months i should have a nice chunk of change to mess with. So I'm gonna need:


Front lip

Side Skirt extensions

Full cf duckbill trunk

Headlights

Type 1 style CF center hood scoop
