its called danase wet glaze, and nope, can't get it at a local store. Either get it through exceldetail.com or danase.com

it's worth it

Well I dropped the car down more today so that I'm tucking a finger gap in the rear and half a finger gap up front. Had to raise up the front a bit because...well, it wasn't more than 10 feet before I heard a loud grinding and witnessed a ton of my tire tread frayed and glued to my fender So now it's a little higher up front so that there's about 2mm of clearance when I'm on a full turn LOL...these wide rims/tires ain't helping much.

I also gave pics of both the front and the back shocks and how much more drop I have available on these d2's....I could easily put rim on fender if desired. I love the d2's because they're sooo easy to adjust height...took me about 20 minutes all around. I'd have to say that I've never been happier with how the car sits...I was getting major looks probably because it looks even lower when I'm driving and my shocks are on 3/4 stiffness so it probably looks like a go-kart. Can't wait to put on the kit!



got clearance? lol...after I put the quarter in there I couldn't get it back out...

thanks brah...oh, the splash guards up front are pretty much toast from being dumped...they scrape everywhere lol...I'm going to ditch them altogether when I put on the aftermarket painted sideskirts and ww lip

rear lip im still not sure which route I want to go, all I know is I want aftermarket and something that hangs as low as the front or as close to it. muffler tips look crooked? could be the angle dude...I think they're straight lol

lol thanks guys, yep to each his own

I usually wasn't a big fan of gold until I got the car, and figured that the gold accents might be pulled off with matching rims. After that I just ran with it...it totally screams '1990's toyota sedan trim' but I guess I want to take it back with the retro style haha. InFaMmus: can't wait to see it dumped, bruh

Damn... You were my inspiration for the gold trim till I started blackhousing and blacking out the chrome. Very nice!

Nice! I love your wheels. I am actually looking for some very similar to that... did u have to add any spacers or roll your fenders with those wheel specs once you installed?
