I removed the fittings and tube so I could polish the underlying area. I also removed the cap and top grommet for the same reason. Once I put it back together I'll take a completed pic and post it to my build thread.

@Ashikabi You are correct... I do take my engine bay appearance seriously... because SHOW car...

Tinted the rear window 20% and side windows 35%.
Installed TRD lowering springs. Shaping up to look very sharp. There is one thing I noticed. The front sits a bit higher than the rear. Like in the front, the gap between the fender and tires is three fingers and in the rear, two fingers. Is that normal? Can someone offer some insight? Also, after how long do the springs completely settle and when do I need another alignment? Thanks. :-)

I think you answered yourself a bit. The springs will need some time and miles to settle, could be why the front is looking higher. Since that's where more of the car's weight is, the springs are probably stronger and compress less at first. I'm sure eventually you will see the height even out.

I hope so. It's not terribly noticeable but I can definitely see it when I pay extra attention.

Nice - great way to explore you and your car's limits in a fun/safe setting. Have fun and try to soak in everything your instructor tells you.
