Yea sorry was driving at the time. It's 1000.0. I keep it on trip because I like the additional tenth of a mile haha. At 60mph I had a pretty short window to take the .0 pic.

got a great deal on some Konig Zero-In's for my Ultramarine FR-S.



i didn't want plain black or silver wheels and am perfectly fine with the red stripe. i think it'd be a nice look as it matches the interior, BUT i also think that a blue stripe would look pretty sick. i didn't want to paint them as that's kinda irreversible so i stopped by pep boys and found some blue 1/4" pinstriping vinyl for $5. figured i'd give it a shot and honestly i'm pretty happy with how it came out. the picture with both color wheels is more accurate in terms of the color of the blue. i took the first 2 solo shots kinda up close with flash and it washed out the color a bit.

original:


modified:


both:


so what do you guys think? i know it's kinda tacky but i enjoyed doing it and really like how it came out. that being said it did take a while and if i'm gonna spend another 3 hours on the rest of them, i'd like to know anybody else likes the look. thanks for the feedback.

Subwoofer, Capacitor & Amplifier install (10/20/12):

a friend and i started and completed our first subwoofer install in a car in a record time of about 7 hours. my friends an electrical engineer so he did all the connections. i decided to try my hand at popping out the panels and running the cables for the first time and it went fairly well aside from one misstep, which was just a complete lack of thinking on my part. i managed to get all the panels out easy, but i wanted to put my bass remote in the little cubby next to the usb and aux ports. so i got that out and without thinking put it face down on concrete and proceeded to drill. i finished drilling to find the front all scratched up as you'll see below. completely stupid, i know, but it became a good thing when i decided i had to get carbon fiber vinyl and try my hand at wrapping some panels.



we installed a Pioneer TS-SWX310 powered by a JVC KS-AX3101D. bought everything i needed for the install in under $400. after using the setup for a week i absolutely love it. yea, it takes up half of the already small trunk, but i didn't buy the car for storage. it fills in the missing low end and takes some of the pressure away from the door speakers, stopping them from constantly rattling. i listen to a wide variety of music and this things great with all of them.

Carbon Fiber Vinyl Panels (10/26/12):

sorry for the terrible photos. i did the cubby that i messed up as well as the two panels by the head unit and passenger airbag. it was my first time doing anything like this, but it ended up taking a lot longer than i thought it would and by the time i finished it was pretty much dark out. i'll take some better pictures soon.






Chrome Amber Bulbs (10/26/12):

this was an easy one and i'm sure everyone's already seen it, but yea, i swapped the amber turn signal bulbs for chrome amber ones. looks so much better and was only about 20 bucks shipped. these are the bulbs i ordered: http://www.hidlightsusa.com/shopping...s&sc=7440/7443. 1 pair of each (7443 in the front and 7440 in the back). the DIY i checked prior to doing this (another first) said i would need to take out the side markers to do the front, but i found that unnecessary. after i took out the 3 pop rivets, i was able to stick my hand in and pull out the socket, replace and put it back without any issue. replacing these 4 bulbs probably took about 10 minutes. again sorry for shitty night pic.

35% Tint on Sides and Rear (11/16/12):

not as dark as i thought it'd be (first time getting tint on a car), but i'm happy with it. been about 2 days and i still have some bubbles. hopefully they'll go away but i imagine it will take a while as it's pretty cold.



Winter Tires Ready to Go (11/17/12):

205/50R17 General Altimax Arctics on stock wheels and Arcan XL325R Low Porfile Jack. got everything ready to go. gonna use summers a little longer though as it's not below 40 regularly yet.

WORKS Exhale Resonated Axle-Back & 35W 5000K HIDs (1/17/13):

my first exhaust for any car i've ever owned. very excited. looking to install this weekend if all goes well although it's getting pretty cold out. that's really the only thing i see stopping me, haha. we'll see. also got 35W 5000K HIDs, which will go in once i get the reverse LEDs i ordered. i want to do the stock bulb to led/hid swap all at once.

sadly reverse light LED's never seemed worth it for me, cree, SMD, etc, they looked nice but a basic bulb or a higher end normal filament bulb always provide a better light

i spent good money on the Cree's too

yea i'd heard bad things about reverse LEDs, but these are the one's i picked up: http://www.ebay.com/itm/120785680410...84.m1439.l2649. they're cheap enough where if they don't work well i won't be too upset haha. i'll have to try them out really to see for myself.

those will work decently just because they produce 360 degrees of light as opposed to directional
