Had another project for the look of the car. This was to blackout the tail lights.
A reminder of what they started out looking like:




Got the lights out and ready to put VHT Nite Shades on them


Then it was time to get them on and see the results. Without the parking lights on:

With the parking lights on:

And outside in the sunlight:

Getting caught up... I've been getting lots of various projects done or worked on for an upcoming move. I pulled out the rear seats to get retrimmed to match the front. While they were out I got the windows tinted finally. They're 35% so they will be legal where we're moving to.


The rear seat came back and threw it in. Looks good with the matching interior.


All this was done just in time for one of the main import car shows in Europe, Japfest. It was a great day out at Silverstone race track.





Now it's just finishing up a couple of things and prepping the car to be shipped next month. The main thing right now is the headlights, I've got a second set that I have opened up, and stripped the chrome housing so it'll be a glossy black. I'm replacing the original projectors with a new set of LHD Bi-Xenon HID projectors. Also swapping the original high beams with 9600 lumen LEDs.

What's the ring hanging down on the lower right there? if you pull it, does it explode four seconds later?

Haha, didn't think about explaining that. It's a part of the Japanese auto scene. It's a Tsurikawa, this is an explanation of it from a couple of sites that describe it.

The ‘hang ring’, otherwise known as a ‘Tsurikawa’ as it’s called in Japan, is basically a hand strap people are supposed to hold on to when riding the bus or train standing up. The Tsurikawas became a sign of rebellion. Members of the Bosozoku, a rebellious younger subculture, would steal Tsurikawas and blatantly hang them off their car’s rear bumpers; ideally dragging them on the ground until they disintegrate. This was illegal and by flaunting one in public on was a subtle way of giving the middle finger to society. Since then, Japanese car enthusiasts use it as an expression of the freedom it represents and they can be bought from many car accessory shops and have many different styles. (Ironic really)

Interesting.

I like my explanation better though.
