Mini Mod as of 11/4/2011

Picked up a set of used smoked side markers, and installed them. Tab broke on one of them, but I just stuck the thing on with some 3M molding tape. Personally, I think they look pretty neat. Seem to match the meteorite metallic paint well, and also seem to have the meteorite metallic magic too: they "change color" based on the lighting.


Now they look lighter.


Now they look darker...

Ha, something also of note: since I commute to school, I usually park far from campus, where the parking is free and I don't run the risk of getting my car dinged up in the commuter lots on campus.

Every once in a whole though, if I'm running late I park in an on-campus pay lot. The same lot that is used by...


My doppelgänger!
I'll have to admit that I think my Yaris looks a bit more "sexy" than it's twin. Must be all of those subtle mods.

Finished up painting my front badge black and body colored which is in a separate thread: (jpmck03's Painted Emblem Experiment )

Did a little photo shoot after work yesterday, showing how it turned out.

Shifter Boot

The shifter boot in your car, is it stock? if not, where did you get it? Thanks

It's stock... I think 2010 is the year they changed over from the "crumb catcher" rubber boot.

Thanks! It was a fun little project. For being mild NF210s, they seemed to drop a little more than I expected... but I didn't hit the driveway when I pulled in, so we're still good! We'll have to see what she looks like after they've settled... (and it stops raining so I can mow the lawn!)

Now you don't have to wait for the sun to mow.
You don't even need a lawn mower. Go for it!

It was sunny today, and 55° out... and this package that was shipped from MicroImage was calling my name!


It goes whoosh!

Easy to install.
Only had a few left over washers and a bolt!

Sounds good.
Feels like I have a little more oomph while driving!

Correction on the sound:

Drove around with the windows down a little bit today... it doesn't just sound, "good," it sounds freakin' awesome!
