So here is what I’m going to be doing to my car in the next upcoming weeks.

I’m building this as a useful daily driver so no crazy mods here. My goal/theme is to have a nice looking car that’s practical for my daily lifestyle. So I’m going for clean, nice looking sports utility veh. (I like to surf, do outdoorsy stuff ect.) I have a dog and messy friends so no crazy interior mods on this one...yet :)

Although I’m building this car for me any ideas, suggestions comments would be greatly appreciated!!

price?!

common no one wants to say anything about my car style? What is it THAT weird?
I think it all sounds good and I'm anxious to see the finished product!!! I struggle a little bit with how a roof rack will change the overall aesthetics but I can definitely see the benefits of having it. Plus I'm beginning to wonder if I would have been better off with the rubber floor mats instead of the carpeted ones....

i esp like all the jdm rumion parts. VERY functional & FUN.

Keeping the stock hubcaps? or upgrading the wheels?

I'm very interested in the floor mats at least. If you're socal maybe meet, wouldn't be that much to ship.

i think a kick @ss pinstripe would complete tha [email protected]@k.

PM sent about floor mats

Yeah the more I think about it the less I want the rack.

I like the pinstriping idea. I have them on my 94 honda accord and like the style.

I want to buy rims but they coast over 1,000 so I have to be ghetto and hold off for now.

Rubber floormats are nice thats why Im getting some I wish they had them when i bought my car. But you can save money and buy mine for way cheeper :). Ill check tomarrow on shipping to LA, SC and san diego for your guys parts.

OK guys leaving now to check on the price of shipping. 3 people are interested in the mats and one person for the grill. I can guarantee I wont charge over $50 for the mats since new ones cost less then $75. My set is front back and cargo area. Id prefer paypal for payment and will add free delivery conf. with your shipping. item will be shipped as soon as payment has cleared. Ill post a price as soon as I get back first to take offer gets that item. I think that’s fair right?

Sorry, there was a lot to cover, so I did my best to address as much as I could :)

I didn't used to be a fan of chrome, but after seeing a dark blue lexus, which comes w/ chrome, I thought it looked much more classy than the Blue & Black scheme I would typically go for. So, the Rumion Rear License Garnish is on my list, but not at the top...

Can't view link here, but I think I know what you're talking about - pretty cool, but it would have low priority for me...

I don't think it's worth the money... there are other hanger/hooks that can be found for much less & perform the same function.

See my comments above about the chrome - same applies here, as long as they're not the cheapo covers, but the real deal

I don't know about your area, but you can probably get it done for much less. Make sure it's a good brand and it's guaranteed.

gldnchld360 said:
Stock mud guards $65.00 (Ebay)
Color matched? Good to go... If the price were better, they'd be higher on my list

gldnchld360 said:

I would consider that route, but I had a Magnaflow on my tC that I loved. I'd go w/ that again if I upgrade.

Black Neoprene seat covers $400 (Scion Dealer)
Something I hadn't considered. I'd like to see them in person though.

gldnchld360 said:

Not a fan... and I wouldn't expect our dashes to need the protection.

Good find! I like that much more than the other types

Same here, but if I had the funds, it would probably be decided ;)

Have it... it was okay, now... eh. See the post you linked to for my update.

gldnchld360 said:
Sound system (undecided)
Too many options/opinions. I'm over the big deafening sound & will eventually get a nice 10", amps, replace speakers & maybe headunit/nav.

gldnchld360 said:
Shark fin antenna (undecided)
Have it. I like the look... :)

gldnchld360 said:
LED taillights (undecided)
I like 'em. It's hard for me to justify almost $300 for those. I don't like any of the other options available though.

gldnchld360 said:
Chrome grill (style undecided)
I have the black Grillcraft & am now wondering if I should have gotten the silver to better match any chrome I might get... IMO, the stock grilles must be replaced and Grillcraft or billet are the best options at this time.

Is there any question? A must have!

Hey Eric I was hoping for your responce. I wasnt sure with the chrome on blue but since its a darker blue I think it will look OK. Chrome on black is so common I want to be a little differnt.

Ok Ive changed my mind on a few things after really thinking about it and getting feedback from allot of people on here and other places.

Im tinting the windows first, them adding the chrome door handles, lifeback handle and grill. Im also getting rims before I work on the inside or engine might as well make it look nice on the outside first. Then Ill finish up the outside with the sharkfine ant, mudguards, window defs and mirrors. I decided against the rack for now. Waiting to do the taillights to.This should all be done soon (just need to sell my 94 accord). Ill add pics as I get parts added on.

I agree with Eric and decided against the coat hanger and dash cover.

Most the remaining :lol: ideas seem pretty cool and, above all else, if you like it "Go for it!!"

Yours will certainly be bretty unique and look darn good too. I saw erics shark fin and it looks pretty cool yet, I was hoping somebody would broaden the selection by making some crazy yet functional designs. His fin keeps it on my list of must haves. $160.00 rubber floor mats ouch! :x I would like some good winter ones to keep the floors from getting cruddy so if some cheaper but good quality ones are around throw me a link. :yes:

Hope all goes together and don't forget pics. We love them. :D

FIRST one, eh? Fair, sounds good to me.

So to clarify things I will send you my stock 08 scion xb carpeted cargo mats which will include the front drivers side, the front passenger side the rear drivers side, the rear passenger side and the carpeted cargo mat cover (which hasn’t ever been used or touched because I have the canvas cover over it) for $65.00 shipped. Payment will be send via paypal and once it clears (should take less the a few days right) I will send your items listed above. I believe its via UPS and it will have tracking to. Do you want shipping insurance?
