    It's a 2005 Scion TC with a TRD Supercharger on 9.5 lbs of boost making around 210hp to the wheels. Engine management coming soon.. should be up to about 225whp. Just put on the FiveAxis lip kit this weekend.

    It's painted in a satin charcoal grey color. It's a matte finish and not glossy and saves me from waxing the car all the time. ;)

    My friend painted the car for me.. not sure the exact flat he used.. but it's not the Hot Rod Flat. All i did was used Silverstone Metallic from the S2000, added a bit more black to make it darker, and then painted the car. I think it was the clearcoat he used that made it dull. It's some type of clear that dries to a dull finish.

    Very nice color combo. Personally, I would lose the stickers on the side to avoid that "rice" look, but man, what a great looking car! Any 1/4 mile times?

    def nice man, always liked the tc.

    the paint is awesome man. I was just thinking if it was cleared, then it was done in a matte finish. Flat would be more noticeably "chalkboard" and we all know what a gloss finish would look like.
