We recently asked for a Toyota Camry SE or XSE to come by and try out our license plate bracket and Andrew answered the call. We saw the new Toyota Camry as a potential gamechanger in its segment with its new facelifted design and its usual fuel efficiency. Andrew rolled in with his XSE and surprised us with the work he’s already done; carbon fiber trims and smoked out bumper reflectors, letters and logo make his Camry looking sporty. What better way to make it even sportier than offsetting his license plate?
Last time on #storefrontfriday, we explored the latest generation Nissan GT-R and its full-bodied appearance that needed no aftermarket parts to bring out its true potential. Our incredibly lucky driver brought a friend to upgrade the interior lights of his Mazda MX-5 Miata, which arguably has one of the cleanest looks a 2-door sports coupe could ever have. With a sleek jet black paint job, @nd_rf has the best looking Miata on the road today.
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.
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.
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!
