KK's modded WDP Sh Awd with Rotora BBK

I just wanted to post a few pictures of my WDP Tl i just added the aero package and plan to have the tints done in 35% soon as well as adding the rear roof wing which i am currently waiting for,some of the other things that i have done includes the 3M clear protection on the hood,fender etc,midnight chrome rear trim and grill,alum pedal trims and an upgrade to the stereo.I have added the Takeda SRI,j pipes and pcd to my wish list of things to do for next summer as i will soon be storing the car for the winter,hope you guys like what i have done so far.

KarKraze....Sharp looking TL!! I love the aerokit and the fact you also store your car in the winter *lol* I partially store mine in that it never goes out when the roads are salty or messy (even when it rains the cars stays inside). I did notice the Ontario plate....Fellow Canadian here (NB). Congrats on your car - Make sure you keep it looking this good. I know some here modify their cars to the max and I find its sometime too much. Yours is just right If I didn't lease my car, I'd maybe upgrade the stereo too by adding a bigger sub as you have....but thats about all I would do except for the aerokit that I have.

I purchased it on ebay,it came painted and you have to specify the colour code in the notes section when ordering,the cost was approx $86.Can shipped,this is the link
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/PAINT...item43a85d7e86

It came with 2 strips of two way tape attached and a tube of silicone,the first time i put it one i did not use the silicone and it did not hold on too well so i removed it and put a strip of 3m vhb(very high bond) over the original 2 side tape and then re-attached,so far it seems to be holding up well,make sure you clean the glass with rubbing alcohol.

You are welcome,yes the tint is considered 30%,however shades can vary from brand to brand so you should look at them side by side for comparison,i choose the Formula 1 Pinnacle because it is considered by many to be one of the premier brands, it has amazing clarity from inside the car and since it is ceramic it will not fade or interfere with satelite signal, i will post an inside shot later.

your car looks perfect. is it stock suspension or did you lower it???

the WDP cars are so nice looking. are those 18" wheels or 19" wheels?

for a car tha tmostly has oem parts on it - body kit/wheels - it looks tasteful, yet aggressive. too many people overdo cars with mods, or mismatched mods and they take a car that started out classy and they ruin it... you, sir, did it right. it looks GREAT.

Thank you for your compliments,the suspension is stock and the rims are 18" stock as well,at some point i may change to 19".

Sport Pedal Installation

Did you install the pedal covers yourself?
If so how did you install the brake cover?

I ordered a set and insalltion of gas and foot rest pedals is easy, but brake is metal and not flush for drilling or setting bolts.

thanks

Yes i did the installation myself and as you correctly stated the accelerator and dead pedals are easy to install,with regards to the brake pedals the aftermarket one did match the original so i left on the rubber pad on and put masking tape over the pad,i then placed the aftermarket piece over the masking tape and used it as a template to mark the hole location on the tape using a pen,remove the aftermarket piece and then drill the marking on the masking tape,be careful not to leave the aftermarket piece on when drilling the holes because the drill can move and damage it,the aftermarket pedals are made from aluminum which is very soft and thus easily damaged by the drill.I hope this helps,post pics after.

I did not recieve those,the only one i got was used to bolt on the brake pedal,nice little bonus though.

No i got mine done at Lazer Tints in Vaughan,i had to wait a couple of weeks to get a Saturday appointment since they were fully booked.I would also like to go to a meet but i guess it will have to wait for next year since i will be storing the car in a few weeks for the winter.If you remember hook me up when you hear about a meet,thnx.

Sorry to hear man; Auto-Links was doing a Group Buy for F1 Pinnacle for $270. I heard you paid like 370 or something! =(

Keep checking the Regions Board for meets =)

Thanks for checking in on my progress,i purchased the kit from Motoring Max on ebay,it came complete with the resistors and wiring harness,keep in mind though that this only useful for getting rid of the yellowish colour of the standard halogen bulbs and they function well enough for drl's they are almost useless as a high beam,if you need to use your high beam often you may need to consider something different since the Led type bulbs are not projectors and will not illuminate a dark areas well.I will post pics of the licence led later.
