Coming into my third year volunteering for Anime Expo, I had just recently discovered the world of itasha, anime-wrapped JDM cars (with few exceptions) featuring the driver’s favorite character, waifu, or anime series. As a paid employee of iJDMTOY, I had to make at least one visit of the car section in the entertainment hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center. So equipped with a more adequate camera, I started snapping away with the office DSLR.
A few weeks ago I posted some JDM cars on social media featuring anime stickers and full body wraps from my second ever carmeet experience. Coming in not knowing what to expect, I arrived with a friend and armed with a piss-poor Oneplus One camera phone, I began taking pictures of almost all the cars that I could.
So you need a high output of light of some form on your Toyota Tundra truck for those nighttime projects like freeway lane extensions. You already installed LEDs in your headlights and fog lights but they’re not quite enough. You decide on an LED light bar, but you have little tolerance for one of those bulky, double-row lightbars and even less room on your Toyota truck to mount one. What do you do?
Slim LED light bars are a great solution for your offroading adventures or work projects if you have no way of mounting outside of your pick up truck. It is possible to secure an LED light bar behind the grille and that’s exactly where our ultra slim 126W CREE LED light bar is made to be mounted on the 2014 and later Toyota Tundra.
Toyota officially scrapped its Scion line in August of last year in response to young adults’ changing attitudes about the Toyota brand as a utilitarian brand for their parents. They have become more and more practical in the past few years. I fall in this demographic and despite being disappointed about the Scion brand being buried, I actually agree with this decision. As a high schooler, I thought Scions were really cool looking but as I grew older I slowly changed my mind about them; I didn’t see myself driving a Scion for too long cause I felt I’d outgrow it before long.
While the brand scrapping is still fresh, this still means that Scions are becoming rare and vintage, qualities which are pillars of the JDM world; it doesn’t matter how old a car is as long as it’s a decent enough body to work with right? Scions have a sleeker and sportier look than most other cars which makes for great bases for aftermarket parts such as the brilliant red LED 3rd brake light DIY conversion kit.
When most people think about how much you can do with a license plate, not a whole lot comes to mind. It’s just a sheet of metal with numbers and letters right? It is well known that your license plate can be used as an identity tool; you can find out a person’s name, address, registration, price history of the car, and so much more. However, creative uses are limited to setting the tags off to the side or set on your dashboard, or adding a frame. Did you know that you can equip your license plate with a high power CREE LED pod light set?
