Talking Venom² : My Yaris build thread Update 1st post JDM TAILS!

HAY! since I have that thread in french on another forum I figured why not post the progress of it so far !

YES ! Venom² is its name since Venom was used for my ST182 Celica... that just ...died because of rust issues in the gas tank.....


anyway, it's a 2008 Yaris Hatchback LE where I ADDED (ebay kit) Yellow fogz.. like any jap cars.. xD

I FINALLY FOUND the wheels I wanted after.... 5-6 months of searching : https://postimg.org/image/rt25a66k1/
BMW bottlecap 14" this will be my summer mags :)

in the back there is THIS badboy! :https://postimg.org/image/htfa9q6gn/

and for the (now on passenger seat) seat decoration : https://postimg.org/image/z5imopamf/

on all that, I changed my shift knob for a Mazda3 shift knob(with a 3.5" extender so it sits higher)[this pic doesn't have the 3.5 extender yet] http://postimg.org/image/x6ryt9t81/

I changed the radio antenna for a Matrix one (it basically reduced it in half) so it doesn't look much like an RC car now

I plan so much other things for example,
I ordered a filp key (euro styled modern car flip key) from ebay (expected to arrive in March) which I just need to swap the electronic of my stock key to the new one and match the blank key to mine,
I'm searching for a DURAFLEX Genesis rear bumper (not urgent... maybe with a coilover set that will go on my car AFTER my college years [yeah sucks to be broke])
some JDM Taillights (because they're so much better looking[or alternative#2 wrapping existing lights in a dark red to make it more uniform])
and for everyone's sake 1ZZ TB
Cold Air Intake or Short RAM Intake just to hear a bit more of the engine with the muffler delete (2" pipe with 2" tip exit) mod I plan to do...


in an ideal world:
2ZZ 6 speed straight cut gears (except the 6th) with turbo

but that most likely never happen for the swap ... so I'll stick with that for now....


UPDATE as of 24-05-2017

NGK iridium spark plugs IN + 5W30 castrol oil + K&N air filter (stock airbox fit... not CAI)
the car finally have its Bottlecap mounted and it's lovely !

I did some detailngs too : TRD Represent! xD

UPDATE! https://postimg.org/image/mrhxu4d05/

Bottlecaps are on GoodYear INTEGRITY SL85S 185/65/14... ready to be mounted on the car as soon as the snow go away (it's technically Legal in Quebec to have summer tires but... I'm not taking any chances as long as there is snow on the ground...)

meh I'mma keep those stripes... if they fell off then I will not replace them, but for now I like them... I need to re do those headlights.. I know !! :(

and nope No center caps for them yet... I wish I could find some generic/no logo center caps to go there.. and since they are OEM E30 bottlecap BBS.. I doubt I can find something

"Wheels look good tho I wouldn't want to clean all those little spokes."

what do you mean ? you don't want me to repair my wheels ? sure it gives it some more character, but I feel the need to take them to an aluminum shop and repair them (plus 2/4 mags are not perfectly round... idiot previous owner did DRAG races with them... and I'm pretty sure he hit something.... maybe a sidewalk on the street or wathever... ) + they need some paint... it all chip here and there.. I tought of a WHITE paint but before painting, I want to refurbish them..

uhhh....i think he simply means that when the wheels get dirty, it would take a lot of time and effort to get all those spokes sqeeky clean. I would have to agree.

Wheels look good on the car.
