#storefrontfriday: Nissan GT-R by @wildboyZLA

One of the more expensive car models to roll into our storefront, the latest generation Nissan GT-R was spotted one day and I couldn’t wait to come down and take some shots. The GT-R is definitely a top-tier sports car in terms of its full-body appearance and JDM aura, especially in stock. There’s no need to do much custom work to bring out its potential but a few lights and accessories here and there certainly don’t hurt. @wildboyZLA came by to spruce up his side marker lights with LED light bulbs.

#storefrontfriday: Scion FR-S by @redridin_86

A few months ago, I started taking notice of the different kinds of cars that come by our storefront and started paying attention to the custom work done. I decided that taking pictures of our customers’ work in progress was a good way to get to know them and if anything, have material to post and write about. Many of them were JDM oriented and Sam’s Scion FR-S/Toyota 86 was no exception. I went downstairs to take a closer look.

Add LED DRL Eagle Eyes to Achieve a Truly Custom Look

While custom work can take a lot of time and effort to execute well, the added LED lights and the boosted aura that your car gives off is often worth it. Most LED daytime running lights are restrictive in that they are exclusively made for their intended car models. Universal fit DRLs also exist but they are constrained by a set shape. So what are your options if you want the complete custom look and don’t mind the retrofitting work? Use the high power flexible LED daytime running lights/puddle lamps!

JDM Itasha Cars Will Turn You Into an Anime Fan (Lancer Evo Edition)

The almighty Mitsubishi Lancer EVO. Once Subaru’s biggest rival and now an extinct breed. Back in the day the Lancer Evolution and the Impreza WRX STi were the two names that came to mind when it came to performance cars. Their storied rivalry that lasted a quarter century recently ended when Mitsubishi released the final 2015 year model Lancer Evo X, which looks almost exactly the same as the previous model, dating back 2008.

Though this Mitsubishi is actually the Lancer EVO VIII, the body type is legendary and will always have a place in the hearts of performance enthusiasts. To me, it’s the perfect body to showcase as an itasha car.

3-in-1 Subaru LED Foglight Trumps JDM Tail Lamps

We’ve been flooding our social media channels with Subaru WRX content lately to promote our LED daytime running light fog bezel. USDM Subaru cars typically lack in one area or another compared to their JDM counterparts. In the WRX’s case, it’s missing a set of daytime running lights separate from the head light housing. JDM fog bezels come standard with an LED strip light to act as daytime running lights, and from afar really lend itself to the tuner aesthetic of the WRX and WRX STi. But while U.S. market Subaru WRXs lack the complete LED package in the front, they are also lacking in the back end. This is where the 3-in-1 LED rear fog light assembly kit comes in.
