Scared and deserve it.

My wake up call of a lifetime. Many awkward conversations. One realization. People don’t deserve negativity in life, no matter who you are. 

Love and positivity is what this world needs. It starts with decisions in life. These decisions should not be taken lightly. Bad decision can create unnecessary situations. I try to make the best decisions in life with what I have. Somehow, I feel as if I do no good. I wish of a better day, today. I’ll feel better in time. I just need to get through this current speedbump.

Legsport Duckbill Install

Finally. The day has come to install this beauty. Below, I will go over every step I took to install the Legsport Duckbill (since no one has made a DIY yet.)


I will also post this DIY to the FT86 forum for a second reference.

Things you will need for the installation:

  • Microfiber Cloth(s)
  • Detailing Spray (Meguiar’s: Quik Detailer)
  • 3M double-sided mounting tape (Might be provided with purchase of Duckbill)
  • Optional: A friend to help
  • Time of Install: 5 – 30 minutes

Step 1: Clean and make sure that no residue or packaging material is on the Duckbill. I suggest using Meguiar’s: Quik Detailer and a microfiber cloth (shown in step three). These will do the best job possible for getting anything off the Duckbill.

Step 2: Prepare the duckbill by taping along the edges and curve crease. Be prepared to use all the tape provided! As you can see, I was given enough tape just to tape the important parts of the Duckbill, so please follow my tape pattern for optimal fitment.


Step 3: Once Duckbill has been prepped, proceed to clean the surface area of the trunk to prevent from any residue getting onto the tape of the Duckbill. We don’t want anything getting in the way and create a pocket for wind to get in! Again, I recommend Meguiar’s: Quik Detailer and a microfiber cloth to clean this area.


Step 4: Now that you have the surface cleaned, Duckbill cleaned and prepped with tape, and your helping buddy is ready – you can now proceed with placing the Duckbill onto the trunk. Be sure to remove the tape cover before placing the Duckbill on the trunk. This is where teamwork and communication is needed so that the Duckbill is placed on properly.

Step 4.1: I’m sure most of us may not have a buddy available to help and are doing the install ourselves. That is okay! I did this install myself and was relieved to know that this install was easy. Before removing the tape cover, place the Duckbill onto the trunk and position accordingly. Once positioned, lift the duckbill slightly so that you can remove the tape cover as you are firmly pressing the Duckbill onto the trunk.


Step 5: VIOLA! You have successfully installed your new Legsport FR-S/BRZ/TOYOTA86 Duckbill. Please be sure to secure the Duckbill by pushing down on the areas taped down to ensure that the tape makes contact with both the trunk and the Duckbill. Apply moderate pressure. I recommend giving the tape 2 – 3 days to settle before going on the roads. Unless you are a Dare Devel like me, you wait a day and drive up to 80 MPH/129 KPM (Legally, of course). Don’t be me.

You might be asking yourself “How does he know how to install Duckbills?” Well, I don’t, but that’s the fun part to modifications – you mod and you learn! If you have any questions or concerns or possibly made a few mistakes along the way, feel free to contact me¬†and I will answer any questions you have.

Late Night Marauder

A little late on my post, I presume. However, who isn’t fashionably late? 

A lot has been going on in my mind, to where I am understanding more about how happy I am in my current situation. Before I begin, I never expected to tell anyone about this because I expected criticism in the lines of being a failure and such. Who gives a shit? As long as you are happy, work hard, and you are able to contribute your happiness and support to others – I believe that can stand for success.

Back to what I was about to announce – I am a college dropout, I have a Government job, I own a home and car, and I am 21. Let’s break this down a little more. WHAT.

What was I thinking dropping out of college? For short, I wasn’t really interested in school. Now, to many of you, it seems like a stupid idea. Honestly, at the time, I was thinking the same thing. What gave me a bit of hope was my older brother telling me “This is your life. There are many people that have done well in life and haven’t gotten a diploma – but those exact people are the 1 percenters of the world.” This goes back to my favorite saying (this is mine, I don’t need to cite shit), from my last story, “my path, my pace.” I believed that I had a better future than to just pay my way to earning a piece of paper that will say my name and not guarantee a job. So what did you do? I worked my ass off, got myself an internship, worked even harder, and stumbled my way into government work. 

I work and make a pretty good living. Doesn’t mean that I’m going to stop here. I just need to gain more experience and work harder. There might be a time where I will have to blossom and pursue a different company that can support me. However, I do a great job and the work is in a field I am knowledgeable in. Getting this job was hard. I applied to dozens and dozens of jobs before getting a call back – finding out that they were interested in what I can provide (with my skills and knowledge from my internship). Nevertheless, after many interviews, three weeks roll by and I was awarded the job! My beautiful girlfriend sat right next to me, in my car, listening to the job offer voicemail. Take as many attempts as you possibly can in life. It may not work the first time, but it sure as hell will work one day.

I own a home and a car. These are great accomplishments, but mainly I purchased this home for my mom and the car was a gift to myself (as seen in the pictures). My mom has been working hard her whole life, taking care of my brothers and I. Ladies and gentleman, she worked three jobs just to take care of baby me. If that doesn’t say hard work and dedication, than I don’t know what is. Sadly, many of us were or are still in this situation. I want to tell you that it is okay and it will continue to be okay. One day, you’ll realize that your hard work has paid off and that you’ll feel empowered to want to do more, and to give back. Use your situation as your fuel and drive towards your dreams.

Age, really, has nothing to do with anything.  I have been in tough situations, was (and still am) mentored by my hardworking family, and I have been broke. You start to appreciate life a bit more with nothing to your name. My piece of advice for you is to work your ass off, take as many attempts as you possibly can until you succeed, and use your situation to drive towards your dreams. Follow your path, and your pace.
