so i finally decided to get a cs front bumper. my gf got if for me for my birthday which isnt till the 28th. i had to buy the grill and pay for it to get painted though. (more than the bumper itself) i used a hexagon mesh aluminum screen 48"x12" for grill work (bought on ebay for $45). it turned out nice i think. when i hook my laptop up ill post the change in iat. i also aquired my widebody fender pieces and had them painted at the same time.

Looks nice, have you thought about painting the mesh black?

idk, depending on the weather and if i feel like fixing my rolla this week. im trying to stay in the sts class all year. i was in hs, sts, and stx last year. i might put the 3rd member back in tommorow if its not raining and if my back isnt hurting too bad. if i really feel good about it i might pull the trans out too. but with the way im feeling now ill be lucky to get the rear end back together. i really want to see what the tc will do in autox now too. have you seen the course yet? looks like fun




since the mesh is aluminum i wasnt going to paint it since it would prolly just chip off with bugs. if i did get it done it would be powdercoated or anodized. i didnt have time today since im using it as a dd right now. (corolla getting upgrades too)

the car is dirty, the paint is only 2 years old. its silver and cold so i dont wash it much in the winter.

I actually have to say... I like the old style bumper better actually. I wanted that older style for a long time! I've always liked it better than the CS.. I guess its just different tastes.

If I had a car that I could put that bumper on.. I'd definitely try to pick it up from you! haha.. as long as you like it man!

nope, ebay mesh. the toyota mesh is too high.



my air temps seem to have droped about 7 degrees C at cruising speed was 35 now about 27 to 29. 70 mph around 3000 rpm coolent temp drops when going above 100mph. the bump did add some wind noise but i dont care.

God I hate indexing... FSP screws me everytime...

But I might be picking up another car this weekend... then the Celi is getting stripped down and thrown into Prepared... eventually.

Looks GREAT.

Any pics to how you mounted your FMIC? Do you have the bottom supported as well?

donteatbugs

top is bolted to the bumper support and the bottom isnt bolted to anything. i was gonna make some mounts for it but i havent gotten around to it. it hasnt moved since i installed it about a year ago though.

Is that the OEM color or is that a custom silver. I have never seen (in person) a silver all-trac...it looks sweet!!! :yum: Your girl should be spoiled on her next birthday for this. :woot: Tell her we approve and to keep up the good work. She's a keeper. :bowdown:

yeah, its custom, its a ppg premium color. the name is silverstar. it looks better on the paint chip than on my car. if you wax it good then it will shine.

she decided she wants custom led backlighting in her car for her birthday(scion tc)
