Default LaxSoHard's Slow Build Thread

Hey everyone, figured I have been putting it off too long so now its time for a build thread!

A little back story with the car; I drove a saturn ion with black 18's and megan racing exhaust so it was time for a new car and after my girlfriend had bought an 09, I wanted one too!

Stopping at the dealerships around here, no one had a manual '11 tC. SO! I have a few connections in Philadelphia so we checked out the dealerships down there and found the one I wanted, called in a deposit over the phone and flew down a few days later!

2011 Scion tC Manual 6 Speed in Classic Silver Metallic

Nothing was really done till this spring other than tinting the back windows when I first purchased the car.

When the winter was over I plasti dipped my wheels and then did teal over them.

Then shortly after lowered my car on Tein S-Techs, they are perfect to hold me over until KSports come into my life.

Drove down to Carlisle for the big show with work (ihatestickers.com). It was a huge cruise down that we sponsored, over 50 cars came down with us. Needless to say we won 1st for club. This is a shot I got on top of the hill when I was able to sneak away from our booth.

Nothing really happened until this week when my fog lights came in and got my front windows tinted. Will post a picture of that later. Have wheels on the way too!

Haters gonna Hate but i'm loving my car right now. I get compliments but then there are always those ignorant people that hate on it because its a scion tc . Oh well, im loving it!

Thanks for looking!

i agree. i mean don't try to "fit in", but painting wheels and other cheap flashy mods should be held off, and save towards bigger/more reputable mods. everyone does have a different taste in style though.

but really- if thats your style, run it hard. like you said, haters gonna hate.

____ the haters man, I actually really liked those wheels. i think they looked good. But if your car makes you happy that's all that matters. I think Silver is generally a boring color but I must admit it looks great on the tc2's.

i feel you man on people talking smack. like out here in chicago the scion game is kinda rough. t i say save some cash for a front lip at least nd some good lookin rims drop it nd people will start kissin your behind complimenting you. do simple mods and your car will stand out in your area. but i have to say that color on ur stockies was nice its different nd thats wat u want. be a leader not a follower.

Rims look good. IMO I would take those stickers off. It would look 10 times cleaner without them.

Thanks! Ive gotten mixed reviews on the wheels, they are holding me over well. The stickers on the window have been re-done and less annoying looking. The bumper ones are hiding a bad boo boo. I work at ihatestickers.com, stickers are a must... advertisement...
