Went to a little car meet today, and got a chance to hang out with fellow IQ owner and friend IQ4me. It's always nice to hang out with a fellow forum friend I'm sure his pics will be better than mine, as he's awesome with a camera, but just wanted to share a pic with everyone I only wish we could all get together someday.
Cool! Cant wait to see more pics!
2012 Hot Lava iQ
This guy really has a handle on how to build a car, I will make sure to take ideas from this thread.
Man, had to read this thread from start to the most current page - Amazing build Daniel!
Truly quality mods all around. The suspension work is pure awesome.
Hey was the optima D51 battery and easy, direct instal? Ordered one myself.
I plan to change update my Scion IQ exhaust muffler to your Magnaflow system.
I definitely want to keep and not modify the rea bumperlet.
Can you help and tell me what part number I need? Where to get them?
I found the brakes of interest. The shop he notes ( http://www.fastbrakes.com ) sells two front kits and one rear kit. I have no experience with aftermarket big brake kits but have read that brake pedal travel starts becoming an issue if there are too many pots in the calipers so I wanted to know if that was an issue with the 6 pot conversion, (as well as the rear, which I think the OP did not get). My source is a store in the UK that sells for smart fortwos, but I can't imagine the system for the iQ is much bigger:
Hopefully he'll chime in....

There have been no replies to the last several questions so this may be a dead thread. However, I have a really non-important question for Daniel:
I'm sure you had no idea where this would go when you bought Scrappy and don't know if you got him new or used; but did you pick the color and why? If used, what was your criteria; year/mileage/color? And would you pick the same color over again if you could?
As my several posts have indicated, I'm looking for a 2014 Base 10 which seems to come only in silver--not my 1st choice. Yours looks cool, but the only reason I tend to stay away from the darker colors is the heat draw from the sun. Any 2-tone whites over "anything" out there? And if doing a custom paint, where do you stop on the body; the Special Edition "Monogram" seems to offer the only possibility in terms of parameters. Thx.

milligi, you can email the OP. If you click on his user name he has supplied his email address there. I’m afraid his status says “Banned” and I think he is not able to respond on this forum anymore.
Thanks. Anyone who has answers to my paint questions can feel free to comment, if Airbagged is off the site. The only reason I would lean toward a Hot Lava or Black Currant (Purple) is because it seems all mfgrs today have taken Henry Ford to heart by offering silver/gray in any color you want...or white....or black. Dull. One seldom sees an automobile in any other color and when I do, it's a real head-turner for me!
