the camry is almost dead man. 299,750 miles. i don't even know how it turns on in the morning.

i need something "meh" to get around town. the hatch has plenty of room for that. i just don't want car payments again.

I bought some cheap yellow fog overlays from eBay, as long as they don't warp and have good fitment behind the fog light lenses I should be fine?

Installed Inno fairing (medium) this week. Unless I'm retarded (likely) the medium Inno fairing Does Not Fit stock cross bars. You actually have to move the outer clamps in a few inches. Pictured below. I just drilled holes. I'll cover it with some sort of sticker or something - or not. The middle of the fairing sits off the car maybe 1/4 of an inch or so. Not much but its not flush.



Here is how it looks - celly pics suck I know just got off the lake, sorry!

Wow, glad I got the parts together for a yakima rack rather than buying the stock bars (had bars, locks, and fairing - put together the mounts, more locks and 2 boa racks for about $120 on ebay) - the stock bars look to be VERY limiting with the amount the arms protrude towards the center - can't be much more than 24 inches of usable bar space! The fairing looks good though! I've noticed with the fairing it is having minimal effect on MPG as well (less than 1 based on the trip computer) I'll have to post some pics when I get our bikes up top, same color as yours (love it) with the yellow fog film cover.

Some more pictures:









Still very hard to see the difference in the two tones, you can just barely see it in the last pic near the driver's side headlight.

This was a short location-scouting trip to see if there were some cool places to shoot, real pics to come this weekend...

(For reference, all pics taken with a Samsung SPH-D710 Galaxy SII cell phone.)

Hi, I took a photo of back of housing..
green arrow - fog light
blue arrow - HID low beam

I'm glad I ordered a 5 door too. I'm just waiting for the dealer to call.

My active lifestyle is Why I bought a subaru. Hated having to pack the bike in the SRT4 and with it being lowered was hard to do... well... anything. Now I have the racks to do what I want and put the bike and/or kayak up top and pack camping supplies and jet!

I am seeing minimal MPG decrease due to the fairing... about .4 so far so no biggie.

Awesome photo! Is the ballast part of the same plastic as the high beam or headlight housing?

^I believe that Yellow arrow is pointing to the angle of the HID projection, to move it either up or down. Thats how it is on the 09s anyways..

What brand/size of kayak is that? It looks to be about 8 or 9 ft? maybe 10 at the most? How does it paddle? Do you take in it anything bigger than that lake in the background? I only ask because I'm looking to get a kayak this spring, but would be taking it on more open water with chances of decent sized waves (maybe 3 ft. waves at most) and would need to potentially cover a few miles at a time. So far, I'm thinking 12 ft kayak would be the minimum length I could go, but I'm intrigued by something about like what is in your pictures...

Looks tight man! Nice choice of rims too. Did you go with 18's or stick with 17's? Also, how did you prep the grill before painting?

Edit: NM... I just noticed your previous post that said what size your rims are.
