One of the little things that I don’t like about the exterior of the Scion FR-S Toyota 86 is the RC antenna on the roof. When I went looking for an option to remedy this eyesore the best option for me was to replace it with a “Shark Fin” antenna, […]
I love my FR-S GT86. It looks fantastic, handles like a go-cart and gets great MPG. One of the little things I do not like about the car is the cheap fake carbon fiber look they put […]

This all started with Andy and the STI brake swap he did on his GTSPEC BRZ. It turns out that as others have also found out the STI Brembo brakes are a direct bolt up fit (well almost bolt on, but we will get to that later) on the FR-S […]

The leather on the armrest or center console on my 2003 M45 aka Y34 was ripped. Originally I tired to just rip it off without taking the damn thing apart. I then tried to wrap it in the same carbon fiber vinyl that I redid my wood in. That came […]
