Let's see if I can find an old pic lol

If you didn't know that I was a ricer before, well hopefully these pics will put that to rest.

I put dark tint film over the a/c symbols to hide them and make them glossy during the day





Then I put lots of bright LEDs behind there to light it up daylight visible



even replaced the a/c LED to blue lol



blue lights in everything



and that was after I swapped interior dashes and had to redo it all, before it was like this

Wow that looks like a lot of work, but looks great!
Ricer? Not at all! lol The interior doesn't look bad at all, I wouldn't mind riding a corolla if the interior was like that
I can see your love for blue, even now.

Yeah that Corolla went through so much as I experimented with different things trying to see what I liked. I definitely like all-black interior, but some blue lights (not like that though lol) give it some color contrast without going overboard.

Your pictures and your car look great, so the next step for your photography I think is location location location!

Nice! This is my first car so I don't have any more experiences with any car. But my Dad was a mechanic for many years so I grew up around cars my whole life.

Thanks! Yes I have a couple of places in mind. I'm gonna snap some more soon..these pics are like 2-3 months old lol I'm bored at work so I go through my pics sometimes.

Looks great! I really like what you've done so far. I think somebody else said it before but all of your small subtle mods really do add up and make a difference. Keep it up

Thanks! The fun is just starting

How much would anyone pay for a TTE spoiler in used condition?

Car looks amazing! Hope to see you driving around sometime. I grew up in Lennox/Inglewood/Hawthorne, and work in El Segundo, so I'm always in the area.
