Gun Grey Metallic Solara UPDATED 10/2

I just got my Gen 1 repainted! It was getting chips and dings from being 10 years old so I decided to repaint it. I got a color I don't think any other Solara has. I broke my collarbone snowboarding, so not a full photo shoot yet, just a quick cell phone picture.

I'll try to get more when I get this sling off.

Feb. 19, 2009. Updated on Page 3. Lots more picture, but same location.

Mar. 20, 2009. Updated around middle of Page 4. A lot of night time shots. Several locations throughout Temcula, CA.

Also two pictures at San Diego International Airport on Page 5

Apr. 17, 2009. Updated on Page 7. No new mods, just more pictures in underground parking garage and some outside shots.

Sep 21, 2009. Updated on Page 7. Two rolling car shots.

Oct 2, 2009. Updated on Page 7. TRD Kit installed!!

Thanks for the compliments guys! To Milt, it is lowered! Teins & Tokico's. And the rims are 18x8, I think that's fair enough. TRD Kit would be next. Should've picked it up when it was on sale on here for $550 p/u.

Once again, real pics coming when I feel better. (This happened at a bad time, the best snow of the season just dropped)

That's hot. I've always wondered why Toyota didn't offer that color for the gen 1/1.5.
