Have been extremely busy with school and work. Finished school so now i have some extra time for myself
Anyway have been doing several mods.
The most recent ones are the fog lights in the grill and the intake. For those who said it couldn't be done:cool:

Let me know what you think

that it probably the nicest 3rd gen i've seen, very good job
Thanks bro!
I've spent a good amount of time on the mods. I don't like have things sloopy and i try to make all the mods as factory looking as possible. So its nice to get some positive feedback from a fellow explorer owner:):thumbsup:

My next step is finishing the underglow and making a custom front lip. Kind of like this one

Nice job man,
You sure keep on top of cleaning that thing, even the frame shines...
I like the floods behind the grille.

Cheers



Ben.
 












looks nice man keep up the good work
 






The underbody glow you have, especially in the wheel wells, are those just l.e.d. bars you got, or did you put in the wheel well kit?

Thanks man!
I do detailing and thats one thing i love doing. That day i did the calipers i clean and detailed the whole undercarriage. Meaning i degreased it and if there was any sign of rust i used a wire brush and gave it a coat of undercoating.
I also like how the fogs came out. Got the idea from the mustangs. I needed the yellow fogs for when its foggy out (i have HIDs in both low beam and OEM fog lights) and did want them to be seen. So behind the grill worked best

what kinda camera you using, good angle too
Thanks, its funny you say good angle...i post on another forum and they are always on my ass about how much they hate angled pics. To me it makes a better pic. As for the camera i'm using a Olympus Stylus760 7.1mp for now. Saving up for a D80

looks nice man keep up the good work
Thanks bri

The underbody glow is all LEDs and the wheel wells are also LEDs. They are flexible LED strips i bought
BTW the LEDs on the front and wheel wells aren't connected yet. Havent had the time
Heres a vid of the underbody...

Thanks bro!
I can't wait to get my replacement HID fogs...one of them blew so sent them out for warranty exchange
 






Great pics dude, I'm going to put a hood scoop on my '04 toward the end of our winter here in Oz b4 work keeps me too busy, I'm angling toward a reverse unit to prevent any dust water finding its way inside, so thanks for the inspiring pics

Hey thanks Scotty!
I've thought about doing a hood scoop but i would want it molded and functional. So maybe i'll spend something and design something so that the air goes straight to the air filter.

You can put it facing the front and not have problems w/ dust or water. Our hoods are pretty straight so just make sure the paint is real clean and free of any wax or anything that would prevent the double sided tape to stick to it. Also having the hood warm/hot will help the hood scoop stick better.
If you need any help let me know bro..i'd be more than happy to help you out

Thanks..at night it looks incredible..real nice and not too flashy IMO.
Yes i mounted them behind the door handle. Took the door panel off and removed the arm rest. drilled some holes and wired them up. I have 3 LEDs in door.
If you want i can snap some pics for you

ebay..its from a 6th gen toyota celica.
 












The color is great too! :thumbsup:
(bottom grille?)

Thanks bro
i don't know about the bottom grill yet. I don't think i would like how it looks being that in the middle its going to look "chromish" and then the side grills black. I might get it and see how i like it, if i don't i'll just resell it.
