*KID*Firestorm Build/properly built to my taste

Starting another journal. This time Im going to try and keep up with everything.

I got this car back in June 2012. The intensions with this car is to have a mild setup up with good power, like it shoulda been from the factory, and slowly getting all the neat Toyota pieces. As far as suspension goes, Im a big geek for that so I have a list and wheels still open for some new CCWs or Volks TE37SL. My time is very limited with work and business, so it will be hard to use the car for track, but I will make time for it once I have a go.

As mods go on the car Ill be updating the this OP

StopTech Brake lines
Motul Brake Fluid
STI Brembos and DBA4000 rotors in the works

Exterior:

Oh someone who has the BRZ/86 spoiler on the FRS. Is it me or does it look a little to small? (length wise)

I was initially going to go all out with Tein coilovers, and squared volks te37s with rs3 but Im having a boy on the way... which is why I settled for the Springs...so wheel choice would have to be cut in half so Im looking into the 18in. Wedsport TC01
