The vinyl tint works pretty well and it stays on as long as you apply it well with no air bubbles. If you've ever tinted your windows before (using the wet method that trav did) or applied vinyl wrap, it's fairly easy.

Yea ive tint before, including my coffee table. I will have to try this film out. I like the fact that its stretchable when heated. Should be able to get the groove nicely.

Judgement time. J/K.....

But ya, never understood why anyone would tint head/tail lights for the sake of appearance. Used to have friends that ran the smoke plexi covers on their S30s.

With 100/60 Z-beams or Euro Hella H4s.

Uhhhh, wouldn't 60/55s be adequate without trying to send light through dark tint?

And get tickets for 'em at the same time?

But not judging. Hahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaa......

That makes more sense, but if you're putting LEDs in the tails for the brake lights, you should have probably gotten red and not white. I think with white, you're begging the cops for a ticket.

Also, if your car starts driving funny, then the lower load with the LEDs are probably messing with the ECU.

Stock housing are red so itll still shine red. These bulbs wont work with his new tail lights.

Worked on my UpRev tune for my Vortech setup. Trying to do the tune 90% myself, then take it to a dyno and have a pro review my work.

Default What's BEING DONE to my, well, not the car itself.

Who says I don't learn from T'bo's mistakes?



I'm just kiddin' T'bo.

But ya, had a wheel/tire shop (a normally reputable one too) mount tahrs on my GT-Cs and the turnaround was less than stellar. Turned out the tech mounted one front on one rear wheel - and vice versa on the other - then had problems taking it off the wheel and re-mounting correctly.

I didn't think I'd ever need to do it but tagged EACH wheel to make sure the right tire got on the right wheel.

And the left on the left. Hahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaa....

Default Installed AEM intake

l had a few small issues, but went in fairly easily. Biggest problem was getting the "air horn" out of the inlet hole on the drivers side. Pleased with the quality of the kit.

That was the longest ordeal in my life. Took a whole month to settle everything. You would figure that someone who does it for a living would be better at their job.

Now i dont know if ill even have my new set mounted.... haha first world problem.

I had chemical guys matte wash and realized the chemical guys brand is just a complete gimmick can go to Walmart and get a regular car wash generic bottle does the exact same thing pay less and get a huge oz bottle
