I should have taken pictures before I put it on, I had to buy new hood pad clips, they all broke when you remove them. The hood scoop has 6 tabs where you would install 6 bolts. I epoxied all 6 bolts in place and added more fiberglass to the underside of the scoop for rigidity. Line up the scoop and place masking tape on the hood, mark and drill. The main thing is make sure there is NO crossbeam underneath. I drilled additional holes to make it semi functional and cut away a couple of rectangles off the hood pad.

For the Xenon, I used the color 8000K, it was a Japanese Kit off of eBay for $ 90.

I feel it's a good street setup, the height nice and tough, I get alot of compliments. The ride is fine, no hopping, I will suggest extended brake lines. There's not much slack left. I have Xreas now, but may change in the future.

How is the paint on your wheels holding up? It looks good. I have been thinking of painting mine lately. Did you sand them before painting? I like the 3.5 coils in the rear too!

Yes the Alloy Wheel Repair Company sanded them first and used a product that almost looked like it melted to the wheels (chemically bonded)

It's just a nice accent, in RED, it didn't cost much, since I don't off road, I couldn't see paying hundreds for a stainless steel one. But Thanks for noticing

Default brake lines

Hey Tiger when you say you need extended brake lines is that the front and back or just the back?

When I installed the rear springs, I stretched the rubber brake lines. I don't take chances, I felt better with more slack, I bought them from Slee Off Road.
