    The building had to slow down a bit due to college funds and other responsibilities. Blue Jay stayed like this for a while.....

    Shortly after, the TSW's came off and back to the stocks we go, but for a good cause. Ive been saving for quite a while to be able to finally retrofit my headlights. Decided to go through a buddy of mine who is a pro at retrofitting. All parts purchased through @TheRetrofitSource.

    Been noticing a lot of people purchasing the TRD Pro Grill Insert and the AJP Red & Clear LED Tail lights. I like to be different from others so i needed to find ways to stand out. Changed things up a little and decided to color match my TRD Pro Grill and Custom Tint my OEM LED Tail Lights w/ Black Sand Pearl Flakes. Along with these changes came.....
    -X Tang Revolution Bed Cover
    -Cali Raised LED 3x2 Amber Fog Light Pods

    Many of you may be wondering, what about the "go fast" parts? lol. Don't worry, lots of performance parts were installed throughout the duration of this build as well. I'll get to that segment eventually, but this is how Blue Jay sits today. 3 years later, i've decided to finally purchase a set of "REAL WHEELS"!!! Specs are a little weak but nothing a 3 Piece wheel cant fix. Just couldnt pass up on the deal!
    SPECS

    -SSR Professor SP4
    -20x9 +31 FRONT
    -20X10 +37 REAR
    -ARRYO Tires
    - 245/40/20 Tire Size
