Recent Update: 11' Yaris Sedan with new "S" Body Kit

Recent Update: March 2012 - "S" Body Kit

Finally was able to piece together the S Body Kit (front & rear lip) from an ebay seller california_bumpers. Still looking for the skirts but oem parts are expensive and hard to locate.

Paid around $300 for both pieces shipped and painted the parts myself for about $60 paint supplies. First time I've painted parts before but came out better than expected using duplicolor auto spray paint, clear, and primer from advance auto parts. Thanks youtube!

The front and rear lip were used and where in pretty bad shape. The front had bunch of scratches and the rear was cracked. Spent the weekend watching youtube and learning how to do auto body. I had to fix the lips, primer and paint, and installing them.

Now on to the photos

Before Photos:








After a weekend of working on the car:

















Next set of mods:
Fog Lights- hopefully with the help of CTScott - Don't know how to wire at all.

^ Thanks Guys. Paint is not perfect though. But for a DIY it's close enough and I'm happy with it.

That came out really good man. I just spent a few minutes going through their entire store to see they had anything else but they have only the rear lip which I dont want and it's in silver.

Bring her over. There's a machine touchless carwash place near my house that washes and waxes for $4 that I go to. Not the cleanest but it's quick and cheap plus there's no where to wash at my apartment.

Thanks! But to each your own is right. It think those wheels should have come stock on all yaris'. Looks clean to me.

No fogs yet. My wife wants me to tone it down with the modding for a bit. It's her car so have to listen. I'll let you know soon Scott when I get them.
