Always great to see people still repping the TSX fam. I'm glad I recently joined the team with my unique Panda styled theme.
I didn't choose this theme, but as time has progressed more and more, I've come to accept it's unique appearance.
Keep showing us your progress, and I hope to learn a lot from you!

The 1UP racks are amazingly nice, I rock one of those as well.

I seriously considered going with some Evo X wheels as well but the weight kept me from pulling the trigger on tires for the set I have.

Sweet ride(s)! Definitely following your build man.

Are you on the ZE40s or RPF1s now?

Also, could you share the link for the CT Icebox on Amazon? Like you, I also have a gift card that I would like to use before shelling out $$ from my wallet.
