i figured that i didn't take a straight booty shot of the IS sooo here it is




TRD style sides and TRD rear bumper add on ordered few days ago , excited so i prepared the paint
ill test fit both and check if the rear add on is leveled with the sides and sides are leveled with the front lip so there might be some modification involved not so hard tho , gonna keep the posts coming :D

update

TRD sides + rear lip arrived , (rear lip was bent , had to git it to the original shape ) used a heat-gun and the polyurethane loved it

test fit :

rear - i need to pull the exhaust tip down a bit or trim the lip to make it fit little bit up

sides - fits perfectly


and painted the engine cover (msm + solar yellow)

here is a pic from my phone camera ( gonna post better pics soon)
