Looks ok mate.. You asked for critism.. So here it is..

If your going to go white, atleast match it all White/Black Just adding white may look good but everybody is doing it now.. Be different go the whole 9 yards.

Also mayb try putting the speakers entirely into the tray it will look much sleeker.

LOL...mud in the engine bay...a quick hose and it would look a whole lot better. Have you thought about doing something with the stock shifter? Looks kinda out of place sitting there like that.

A nice B&M shifter could look sweet in there. But it's not too bad as it is.

Nice work on the highlights inside the engine bay, got a good finish on everything in there.

thanx, and yeah i should but 1 of me mates that ownes a vn commodore hangs **** on me for it being a lexen but it back fires cause mine looks better at the moment so until our little comp is ova i will. As for the audio specs right now i can only give un-detailed specs cause i have just plainly forgoten but il get on to it.
Front: stock 4"
Head Unit: Sony xplode CDX-S2200 mp3 4*50w=200w
Rear: Sony xplode 3-way 200 w6*9
Subs:2 Boss 800w 10"
Amp: Boss BA-2900 4ch*250w=1000w
Box L's: I think its 237.5l but that doesnt sound right so il check up on that.
i know the goods may not look inviting but the sound that is produced is good enough for me i cant sit in the car with it turnd up and at that level it still wont distort. as for db i havnt had it tested. and yes the whole boot setup i made myself.

Keep the Toyota badge:) Lexcens are the gun item. But I'd have the dash original, white looks young and cheap to me, but I'll let you have you time with it:). You will grow out of it one day and wonder why you did such crazy stuff. Stick a TRD sticker on the dash just to make sure everyone knows it's a Toyota.

P.S the weeping cherry tree looks impressive as :) should be a good show in a couple more months time

thanx for all the feedback.
firstly:i used to have the engine bay spotless but then we moved out bush and i constantly drive on a dirt road so everytime i pull out of the drive she's dirty again but i should have cleaned it before i took the pics.
second: the shifter seems a popular mod to do i had thought of it before but not in detail so it will now go on my list of things to do.
3:thanx 1991_Vn2nV the boot was the hardest thing i have done so far so its nice to get compliments.
4:greenfoam, yes i probebly will think why i did that in a few years when ive grown out of it but hopefully i wont be thinking a lexcen is a collectable so i will just get rid of it. The cherry tree looks great il try remember to take a pic just 4 u. lol.
Thanx again to everyone
