    Default Check out my Japanese van/project build.

    I've been messing around with a little van build lately. The stereo system is insane, but I wanted to share some of the cool things I done to it. Van is a Toyota Voxy, not sold in the USA. I picked it up stock but here some cool things I done to it. LEDs and HIDs all around to include interior. I picked up some Matte vinyl 3m stuff and wrapped the hood and roof. Also picked up some used wheels for 300.00 bucks, but as of next week it will have some new shoes. I scored a set of MSR 52 20"wheels in Superfinished/black that should match the wrap and the effect I'm going for a little more. Anyway here are a few pics. New wheels coming and will be wrapped in 225/30/20 tires.

    A quick pic of my Crescendo 2Ks strapped, Battery box that holds my 2 XS power D3400s, everything fused up. You can see my MB Quart Onx4.125 as well.

    I think it looks old school, but definitely something fun to play with.

    It looks great. But being as you are in Japan? Isn't STORAGE space a premium that most would NOT cede to a giant sub BOX? lol

    It all makes sense why you wanted the XXX's when they were for sale.

    And I bet it's been a fun little toy. And I'm aware of some of the stuff that rolls over there. There is a certain Renault Minivan (F12 maybe? I can;t remember...) with a V12 I would love to see rip full throttle at 14k RPM........ *drool*

    That was awful rude.

    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.

    Yep that seems to be how GDB rolls man. He already said he despises the Japanese culture, so it's to be expected. Still have love for my Polk brother.

    No "rude " intentions, just honesty, like I'd expect from anyone else. FWIW. I'd hold the very same opinion if the project vehicle were of Korean,Italian or even USA manufacture. NOT into econoboxes, period. Like I said, if that's what blows your skirt up.......I'm genuinely happy for you that it does. My thoughts on the Japanese mentality would take an entire thread of it's own, but we won't start that particular death march here, or now.

    Tom.............nevermind. (go tell it to that other forum......oh.......wait.....)

    Love it ! And with nice (if Wicked) tunes in the back.

    Just one word of advice, if I may: let's not be putting any wings on that Voxy (as shown in zingo's link).
