TEKSMRT's 2009 V6 4WD Sport SAP build

I hope this is the right section - if not please move.

I have lurked around this forum for little over a year now, but it wasn't until I totaled my 2007 Toyota Prius and purchased a 2009 V6 4WD Sport SAP that I actually became an active member.

Just wanted to start a build thread for my Rav4 like I did my last two Prius. Neither of them remained stock for long and I doubt that the Rav4 will either.

My 2008 Prius touring started like this:



Ended like this:



Actually more like this:

So.. I thought two totaled Prii..time to move on.

Been following several 2GRFE MR2 swaps and knew I couldn't do a coupe little sports car - so I started looking at Toyotas quickest little SUV. Didn't even know that they made one without the spare tire - found the SAP and looked all over and only found them in the Northeast. Worried about the rust, I found one in Missouri that had been brought down from NY and I snagged it.





Didn't stay stock for long...

First, had to do something with the taillights. Got them tinted. Hadn't even got my actual plates on yet.

Then started on all that ugly chrome... Anthracite PlastiDip does wonders.

Didn't like how dark the tails were - concerned that they were so dark that my brake lights wouldn't show well enough. And the backup lights weren't adequate. So I added smoked LED rear bumper lights and a 10" single row LED flood bar.



Right is still the oem red reflector, Left is the new smoked LED that will tie into the taillights and brake lights.
