My Modified Venza: Now and Then

I finally got the H&R Sport Springs installed on my Venza and that was the last major piece to my plans. I have been tinkering with different mods over the last 2 1/2 years and now it's where I envisioned it when I bought it.

So, I guess I'm done! Now if money were no object, I would throw on a body kit and some new paint, probably bag it and then start looking for that supercharger. When I win the lottery, I will post the photos!:rofl2:

Thanks, man I am enjoying it. I've gotten quite a few compliments on it already. I took it to the dealership to have the alignment checked and there were half a dozen mechanics and a couple of salesman checking it out.

Honestly, the only thing I still want to do is paint the calipers and wheel hubs, that's it.

Well, I'm not suprised in the least... It's a head turner for sure!!! :thumbsup: Great job!

What color are you thinking of painting the calipers/hubs? They're probably silver now (if it's the same as mine was)... correct?

Not that I have noticed, but I rarely listen to the radio. The only reason I ever listened to the radio instead of the USB stick was for traffic, but when I got my Garmin it had traffic, so I switched over to the USB stick and never looked back. That was long before I got the shark fin.

New Tints Installed

Here are some comparison photos of stock against photos with my new Lamin-X "Gunsmoke" tint installed on the head and tail lights. They came out really awesome!

Looking good. Do you have pics of the reverse led on? I see that you have the 7w Cree.
I don't have any photos, but with the rear tints, they aren't that bright anymore anyway. The Cree bulbs are brighter than the stock bulbs though.
