PROJECT TIDAL WAVE

It's a 2006 Tiburon Tuscani, purchased brand new in February of 2006.
Tuscani was a Canadian trim level for 2005-2006, it came with the T badges and the T wheel caps also. I believe everything else was basically the same as the SE.

At 60k kilometers and problems so far are the clutch master cylinder exploding and now something is wrong with the clutch or related where it gets stuck in gear. So new clutch/flywheel has been purchased and will see if that fixes it. And getting rear ended.

So, new pictures, mod list, and old pictures below. Will be updating as things are installed.

Only have these crappy phone pics that are recent:

Wow it looks great.

I think you should paint the mesh screen on your hood black. Other than that you have a super clean car....

I haven't decided about lowering it yet.... I live in an area with tons of potholes everywhere and I have an underaxle exhaust so that might be a bad idea

hmm, I think the mesh would look worse painted black




see, does that look better? not to me

i just wish the eyelines matched the blue better... they are slightly brighter... you can't really tell from the pics I have but head on you can

black definetly looks better
I got a can of flat black paint so maybe I'll try it out for awhile

for the tails I would want the same as what tonic21 has:



those look awesome

I was never sure if the hood would look ok

I really thought unpainted CF would look bad on that blue so painted CF it was

turned out alright I guess, wish I had one of those Chaos ones though

Very nice looking tib man :3_wink:

l have to keep reminding myself that l'm not looking at my car lol :2_biggrin :2_biggrin

l see hood vent prevents you from having T logo on the hood or you could put it on? But l guess lt would look strange.
