Project SEMA Scion Tuner Challenge FR-S, Working on the Cosmetics

by Mike Kojima

In our previous installments of Project SEMA Scion Tuner Challenge FR-S we have been working on getting the performance of our sports coupe up to snuff.  Now it’s time to look at stuff that we usually don’t care that much about: the looks stuff and cool JDM bits needed for car show points!

Since we figured that every FR-S at the SEMA show was going to sport the new Rocket Bunny wide body kit, we decided to do something completely different. We came up with a theme of restraint.  At the risk that no one would get it, we decided to go MotoIQ style and come up with a look of a practical daily driver car, one that would look trick with a few high quality parts but not something that would scream look at me.  Would the judges get it?  Probably not but we had to do something radically different.

Now let’s take a quick look at what we did to get the cars cosmetic stuff up to show spec!

TRD provided these projector headlights that featured LED daylight running lamps.  These were cool light and probably no one would notice them!  The rules said that we had to integrate as many TRD parts as possible into the build so here was a good addition.
The lights bolted right in and fit perfect.
A TRD steering wheel has a nice thick leather wrapped rim and red accent stitching.  This is a really nice wheel that fully retains the OEM air bag.
The air bag is switched from the stock steering wheel to the TRD unit.
The TRD steering wheel is extremely high quality and perfect in fit.  Retaining the OEM airbag is important for safety.  The red line is to help the driver orient the wheel.
