  1. That's very useful to know, thanks dude!
  2. Bump :). I believe these are the same bumper brackets that were used on non Glanza UK cars too if anyone has one they're breaking? It's the brackets and bolts that attach as in the below pic.
  3. As above, if it's been looked after the costs aren't that horrific. I used to own a gen 4 twinscroll Legacy and I currently own an 02 JDM WRX that's been hit with the modding stick. Both return fairly good MPG (for a 2.0 turbo). Parts prices aren't that bad and most stuff is easily available. In all the time I owned the Legacy, the only thing that went wrong was an O2 sensor. I can't really comment on the WRX yet as I've only owned it for about a month , but it has been VERY well looked after by it's Japanese owner and so far it all seems solid enough for a 17 year old car. Oh, don't be put off by the horror stories - they're not really that difficult to work on yourself if you feel inclined.
  4. As above, I'm looking for a pair of these and the 2 bolts that hold the bumper to the bracket please :).
  5. Does anyone know how to remove the shade/blind from the factory sunroof (or if it's even possible)? I'm re-covering the headlining and would like to cover the blind in the same colour if possible.....
  6. Race Dynamix mainly map Subarus afaik, but it's well worth giving him (Duncan) a call. He runs mapping days all over the place so can be tricky to get hold of but always responds within a day or so. Very helpful chap. Or, a little further afield is Leighton at Circuit Motorsport (aka Sabre Tuning) at Castle Combe - this guy worked absolute wonders with my Mk1 FRS a few years back.
  7. Hi all, can anyone tell me if the below look correct? I've ordered some rear wheel bearing seals for the Glanza and these arrived, however the ones on the car have a metal casing whereas these don't. Is it just a newer design or something? The ones on the car look like this:
  8. I've said it before, I'll say it again - stunning! Quick question, is the 'clear' brake light in the spoiler a 98 spec thing?
  9. Haha you're welcome! I managed to take a quick pic the other night. It's not the greatest, but it'll give you an idea of how they fit:
  10. Looking forward to it! Not seen this thread before, the car is absolutely stunning! So much attention to detail.
  11. Thanks man! The new rear seats and shelf have made such a difference! Just waiting to get the calipers back now and I can start rebuilding them. I've never actually done a set of calipers before but it all seemed to make sense when I was taking them apart so hopefully should be simple enough.
  12. Parcel shelf retaining clips arrived today and fit perfectly . In case anyone is looking for the part numbers, they are: 64323-10040-C0 64324-10040-C0 I paid about £6 each from Amayama, no idea what Toyota would charge as my nearest one couldn't find them on their system .
  13. Another little update :D. So, the front bumper is still off the car - I just haven't gotten around to putting it back on yet. The rest of the AC system is now gone and a shorter aux belt is fitted. I also got rid of the AC gubbins from under the dash, which gave me a perfect grommet for running the battery relocation cable through the bulkhead . Just need to fit a decent battery box in the back and get a sensible sized battery (I've decided against the truck battery that's currently under the bonnet as it takes up half the boot :lol:). Last weekend I took out the rear trim so I could run the battery cable neatly and decided I'd throw in some insulation that my new arm rest was packaged in (it's from a Sera and doesn't fit perfectly but will do for now). Should keep the road noise etc. down a bit.... Last week I picked up some nice 98 spec rear seats and a parcel shelf from BMX-RIG (VERY helpful guy) and got them fitted today (I'm just waiting to hear back about the middle hinge as I totally forgot I'd need one at the time . Managed to source some new parcel shelf retaining clips from Japan, so I'm just waiting for them to arrive. So, the interior is pretty much finished, I just need to finish re-trimming the headliner and get it installed. I'm also considering fitting a small sharkfin DAB aerial to the roof - The standard antenna just isn't cutting it anymore and I like listening to Planet Rock while I'm driving :lol:. I also set about removing the rear calipers today. The drivers side has a habit of sticking on, plus I needed to replace the handbrake cable on that side too, so thought I'd take them off and get them blasted (they're incredibly crusty!) at work then have them refurbed. I've got a rebuild kit to do it myself, so that'll keep me busy for a while :D. It's also going to receive new discs and pads all round at some point, the fronts are very low and the rears were down to metal! This is how we finished the day: . More as it happens......
  14. Collected some rear seats and a parcel shelf this evening, really helpful guy. Sent pics of the items when asked and waited about for me after I got stuck on the M25 . Would happily buy from him again.
