Nice lookin' ride, not too dirty. You make me feel so lazy for not painting my calipers yet. They look so good in red on a Flint Mica tC.

Not fond of the fogs or the spoiler, but I like the color and yea, it doesnt look too dirty in the sun. Those huge ass lens flares make it look nice n shiny =)

Also did you paint your front emblem black while it was on the grill or take it off first?

I took the whole grill off and spray it black.. made a mistake and installed it back on the next morning. It wasnt fully cured so the bugs i hit kinda knocked some part of the black out. I then painted the front SCION emblem Flint mica from the touch up paint *pic not shown* BUT i did paint the back SCION emblem flint mica and its PERFECT! It blends in with the car as u can see in the pics.

Taking off the Grill isnt that hard.


1) open your hood.
2) Look for the 7 screws (need a realll smallll phillips)
3) chrome part of the grill should be loose now
4) there should be around 4-6 clips you need to unclip
5) just pull out the grill sideways and spray.

Painting calipers are easy.. just get a can of engine paint /spray and use a brush to apply to the calipers. But you gota clean the calipers first. I did it with Q-tips because.... i couldnt find a brush lol.
