  1. Well, I got the car all loaded up today ready to take back to Trav. Had one last little blast in her first and still puts a smile on my face. He’s got some really nice things planned for the car so switch over to his thread for some updates soon.
  2. Nice tidy looking car, we had a bit of a play, I was in the black Fabia VRS
  3. Was on a trailer going south on the m1 today around 2
  4. I’m just struggling with time really but next week I plan to get a lot done
  5. I know of 3 but that’s it. I ordered some bits and bobs but just need to find the time to fit them. Got hold of a rocker so that’ll be getting sent off to dean soon and I’m going to start working on the brakes so that I can get the car driving around
  6. Good to see it’s still going mate
  7. If you’re thinking of removing the one from your car to make a If you’re thinking about removing yours to make a mold then it may be tricky as I’m sure the body shop bonded it on As well as bolting it in place
  8. Nice to see you back on here mate and rare photo opportunity there. Can’t decide which colour I like the best as they all look good in their own right. Sorry to hear about the axel!! Where the hell did you find original decals for it? yeah that’s the problem with a super low mileage car, can you actually enjoy ownership? I had an Impreza GB270 wagon once and it was number 1 of 100, I hated putting miles on it or driving it in the rain, I sold it after a year because I just couldn’t enjoy it
  9. I explained that the car is all how Toyota intended from the factory and they couldn’t believe it. I just wish they’d have stuck the 98 glanza interior In With a 1.5 or something to finish it off
  10. Looking good mate, some spacers would bring the wheels out nicely too (not stanced). Try looking for a 98 glanza breaking and get the wheel off that, that’s what I put in my old one
  11. We had a big brief in the workshop on Friday and had a lot of other people in there from other departments, the interest the SR and GT got was ridiculous. I’ve had 5 serious offers on the GT now lol and have explained the SR isn’t mine to sell
  12. The car came with brand new mintex pads and discs all boxed up so I think I’ll just stick with the original set up. The wilwoods will be put to much better use on a high powered one. I’m honestly not going crazy on the power, I feel it’s a bit pointless as these things are lively even at around 170 anyway 🤣
  13. I think I’ll refurb the originals and see how they perform, I’m not chasing big numbers so they will probably be ok
  14. Yeah they’re brilliant seats, I’m not the smallest of people and they’re fine. next on the list is the braking system. Rear calipers need a rebuild and I’m currently deciding whether to fit the wilwoods or sell them, what are everyones thoughts? today I’ve ordered a rad mounting kit, SPL can fixings and fan switch. Once she’s driving and stopping I might just put the body panels on and fire her in for an MOT to see what they pick up.
  15. Yeah I don’t mind a leguna, front sits way too high than the rest of the car doesn’t it.
  16. Had a little sit in the car on the original seats and I can’t wait to get it driving around now
  17. Seats in and door cards rebuilt, now it’s time to sort the braking system
  18. I went to view around 6 before buying mine. To be honest mate from what I’ve seen it must be the best one around, I’ve seen lover mileage but terrible condition and then ones that aren’t too bad but still nowhere near as clean. I do love them though to be honest no matter how rough they are, feel like I want to save every one I see. yeah it’s very easy to re-trim the door cards, I don’t think the pattern is too far off though.
  19. The SR’s are worth the effort mate, wish I’d never sold mine but I know it’s in good hands now. Wow that’s a lot of work tho, makes me feel quite lucky how solid mine was. yeah your plastics are lighter but the full plastics are really easy to change over. I bought The door cards and the next day I was offered the 98’s so I never fitted them. They’ve been in my loft around 5 years. Well, you know where they are if you need a pair.
  20. They are just missing the switch part that’s all
  21. Looks lovely mate especially without the tints, were they easy to remove? I love gt seats mate, like you said tho finding 98’s is a mission! ive got some mint glanza door cards that would go v nicely with those gt seats
  22. Don’t be daft, I’m just a nightmare
  23. Gave the interior a good clean today and it came up really nicely. Lads at work keep taking the piss saying I’m anal with the cleaning 🤣
