  1. New axle acquired which has now gone for a quick blast and lick of paint. also got my tyres fitted and I cannot get over these😍 absolutely stunning so happy to have got hold of a genuine set.
  2. So doing rear wheel bearings in preparation for new rear brakes and came across the absolute monstrosity 😡🙄 fair to say rear axle off in the bin Don’t know how one could be so lazy and in turn ruin the axle. So if anyone has one please hit me up! in better news tyres turned up for the advans! decided on NS-2R seeing as they don’t make proper AD08R anymore, I would’ve liked r888r or ar-1 but I don’t think I’ll be on track enough to warrant these. So for about £250 odd I cannot complain 👍🏼.
  3. Hi all, having problems regarding sump, oil pickup and dipstick on my 5efe bottom end. my dipstick is from a 4e, my sump and pickup are from a 4e but for some reason my dipstick is hitting the sump baffle before seating properly. Really odd one, I believe my sump and pickup is from a glanza. And my dipstick from a GT. Any advice ?
  4. Cheers matey, I can’t wait to get it back out cruising and going to meets. it’s been so long and I’m starting to miss it more than ever now. Good to see the 2zz glanza being revived also, looking forward to seeing what’s in store for it soon!
  5. Rear brake setup from ID workz, fronts on the way👀
  6. Hi all after a ep82 fuel tank in good condition, also after a filler neck in good condition cheers
  7. Cheers buddy, at points it feels like I don’t even own the car. yes I’d be interested in the wilwoods mate fire me a pm over and some pics.
  8. Good day, got to be coming up 2 year since this cars had an engine in so I’m pretty buzzing. Getting closer by the day to first start up! Hopefully 4-6 weeks and it might be moving under its own load. No LSD for the time being as I want to start buttoning it up, I’ve been searching around for a box but no luck so it can wait. Also on stock brakes. These will be sorted before it goes for power runs on the dyno. I just want it running now so I can start bedding the engine in and get any teething problems out the way. also if anyone’s running a twin rear entry i
  9. New windscreen seal and window wipers from Toyota, quick refurb on the wiper arms also and they was starting to rust. Just getting the rest of the exterior up to scratch now since the respray I don’t like it looking half-arsed.
  10. Thanks mate and we’re still a bit to go before the threads done. Ye I watch them YouTube vids on repeat of him beating gtr’s and Audi r8’s and that was before it went for big power! Haltech elite 1000 will be run, and pistons were mappers choice really, same place who tuned martins in fact, so should be allllll gooood 🙂
  11. Been a while but still here and still tinkering. Pretty much got the exterior of the car finished, wet sanded & polished the headlights and finally got hold of some seals for the taillights sourced and provided by Dan @ DJR imports 👍🏼. Also got the intercooler sat in position and mounted up ready for the motor to go in so I can get measurements for the charge pipes. Now I’m on the fence wether to leave the front bumper fully cut how I bought it or to fill in either side of the intercooler as I think it leaves the front exposed a bit too much.
  12. Not really on with much atm due to work and covids knocking bits and bobs back. My wheels are just waiting on final stickers and then they’re good to go, white to gold whilst still retaining that OEM blue strip 😁.
  13. Cheers boys, time to start building up over winter now, not much left to buy if I’m honest. fingers crossed she’s on the road in March
  14. Cheers lads, happy to have her home can start building the car back up now over winter ready for March time, hoping to see what more goodies I can collect along the way also👀
  15. Cheers rob, hopefully be able to leave you it with you for tuning sooner rather than later! @RW developments uk on instagram. or http://racework-developments.co.uk/
  16. Hi mate not sure on the core price as RW developments sources them and then welds the tanks.
  17. Busy day for the starlet! ITEC intercooler core, one of the top cores money can buy finished off @ RW Developments to suit, twin back door tanks welded on. These mean minimal intercooler piping is needed, this leads to less turbo lag hoping to provide me with a broader powerband on boost! and the final piece to the exterior puzzle. The one body part I have been after since I got the car in March 2018. Livesports spoiler
  18. Popped again today to see the car now it’s been polished up, sideskirts also fitted and adjusted as the door was just catching when shutting on passenger side.
  19. Popped to the unit to see the car today, fully painted now, just the sideskirts were coming out the booth as I arrived so hopefully pick up the car next week and bring her home. Still waiting on spoiler and the odd little bit but soon it’s time to start buttoning the car back together! maybe this lip is not everyone’s cup of tea, but the exterior wise the EP82 is a very limited car, let alone front end so I was happy to get something to make it look a bit more aggressive, and now I think it looks mega!
