My 4G and my buddy's 3G's tail lights started looking faded so we retinted them!


For anyone who has owned a 3G, you know that hard ass bolt to get to...


Wet sanding after using Goof Off Graffiti Remover


First coat!


Three VHT Niteshades coats, four clear coats, some more wet sanding, Maguire's Ultimate Rubbing Compound, and reinstalled!

Definitely has noticeable blemishes up close but I'm overall happy with today's work!

It still looks very nice regardless but I can only imagine how sick it would look with the extra drop. I wish I had some of the performance mods and engine dress-up that you have going on.
Do you think you will buy coilovers eventually?

Was on my way home from Lexington yesterday; perfect and beautiful weather. Two cars ahead of me slows down in a 35mph to take a left turn. The car in front of me slows down; I slow down; the car behind me...does not slow down. She was a college student like me and although she didn't admit it, I guarantee she was texting and driving.









AAA dropped my poor Elvira off at a semi-sketchy collision repair shop that's closed until Monday while the girl in the Scion TC drove off (not like a hit and run thankfully). Waiting on an estimate and the police report and will go from there :(
