    I've been working on this on and off for awhile now. Check the link for what the model looks like when you get it. I've done quite a bit of chopping underneath to get these bigger wheels to fit and have the car sit low.

    eBay: 2003 TOYOTA MATRIX BLUE 1:18 DIECAST MODEL (item 150093657243 end time Feb-25-07 19:12:01 PST)

    I have to take some pics of the interior too, I repainted all the dark gray parts black. Then I painted the seats and door panels with a silver insert. This is the only part that strays from my car. I need to find a pair of seats that I can make look like sparco's! :cool:

    Edit: The front door panels are off, I'm still messing with the lambo doors. I dont like the way it looks so I may switch back to regular ass doors.

    I was looking at that for the next one. I want to suicide my rear doors on my real car, would be so hot to have them open up and leave a big middle open area. :)

    that looks sweet as hell. you should put a sliding rag top on the roof. im not talking a small one, im talking one that takes up the whole top. that would look sic on there.

    I was going to put a sliding rag top in my car awhile back, but I bought some turbo parts for the car instead with the money. I may buy it after I bag it :)

    :) id like to see it bagged. you could do a uni-body drop on it and make it lay on the ground when aired out all the way. that woukd require cutting and welding if you do that tho.

    I've been talking to Recked about doing my bags. I want to lay the side skirts on the ground.

    so u gonna do a custom kit then? im sure there is a place that makes a bolt-in application for em. i will do some looking around.

    suicidedoors.com doesnt do sliding rags, a company called Street Beat has them and i THINK godfatherscustoms.com or stylinconcepts.com sells them. i will look for those as well.

    I believe that bag kit is the AIM kit. I could be wrong, but Recked and I did the links back and forth deal the one day and I kinda remember that one being the AIM kit.

    The ragtop I have a deal on. 750 installed with a lifetime warranty for leaks. I want the BIG one too :D
