  1. Another update, For anyone who has bought the replica glanza headlights. I've discovered you can swap the reflectors from inside your original units into the replica ones by simply unscrewing three screws at the back and transferring them over. Makes them look a lot more oem and probably increases light output with the original halogen bulbs. Also this happened. I'd been debating it for a while and was unsure because of how difficult these bumpers are to come by in original condition nowadays. Anyway I'd already hacked a fair amount off underneath for the front mount
  2. Sound mate, I should be all good then. Cheers 👍
  3. Thanks Nick, Yeah spoke to another lad who has done the same and his went through mot fine. Just hope my tester is okay with the screamer lol
  4. Here's the link mate, you just have to message the seller and ask for just 1 pair 👍 https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/Black-Housing-Aftermarket-Headlamp-Headlight-For_1600226466504.html?spm=a2700.galleryofferlist.normal_offer.d_title.48c361eb61sWSG
  5. Managed to break one of these clips that holds the archliner in while working on the car. Luckily they are still available from toyota. Actually worked out cheaper to get two of them shipped over from japan via amayama than it would have cost me for one at my local toyota dealer!! I have also purchased a 400 cell cat from tegiwa to go in the exhaust just after the sump. Going to get my exhaust fabricator to make me up a new front pipe to house it once I get the car back out. Should help me to be emmisions compliant.
  6. Next up I decided to take the plunge and ordered a new ct9 ram horn external gate manifold kit from Sacha at wicked ep racing. I had been debating it for a while after problems with boost creep on the oem ct9. I like the ct9 and wanted to get the most out of it while still on standard engine management. A couple of months later it arrived, it really is an amazing bit of kit. Got the tial 38mm MVS from Mike at tuning developments. Made a start on getting it fitted, starting with clocking the compressor housing to face down and making a new hot pipe adapter to suit. I was t
  7. So about time I updated this, cars been tucked away in my good mate's garage again over the winter months. Meanwhile ive been busy making some upgrades. First up was the doorcards, mine had seen much better days and both corners had been snapped by someone trying to access the upper trim fixing. So went out and got myself some 3mm thick ply to remake them. I traced around the old cards and marked out all the holes, then I cut them to shape with a jigsaw and went about cutting all the holes out with a drill and multitool. Once I was done I got myself some suede fabric and
  8. Thanks mate, heres the link for headlights. I had to message the seller and ask for just 1 pair. https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/Black-Housing-Aftermarket-Headlamp-Headlight-For_1600226466504.html?spm=a2700.galleryofferlist.normal_offer.d_title.48c361eb61sWSG
  9. Yeah, as far as I'm aware I've managed to get 1st, 3rd, 4th and 5th gear synchros. Only one I couldn't get was 2nd gear. I read a thread on the other forum where a lad had successfully used 1st gear synchro for 2nd gear and 4th gear synchro for 3rd gear. So I was hoping to use a 1st gear synchro for 2nd gear. https://www.toyotagtturbo.com/community/index.php?threads/gearbox-synchros.110499/ This is the part number I have for 3rd gear synchro, can't confirm it's correct though as I've not had the box apart.
  10. Thanks Tyler, yeah pleased with the lights. They're pretty decent overall. Good to see an alternative available.
  11. Picked up some aftermarket replica headlights for the car recently. Wanted to try them out and see how they compare to the toyota units as my lenses are quite worn and always seem to come back yellow despite polishing. Got them installed and quite impressed with the fitment overall. They fit well onto the original mounts and line up nicely. Swapped over the bulbs and put my osram nightbreakers in and they seem to work well. Time will tell to see how they last but look much better than my originals. Also got some more genuine bits from toyota. New front windscreen mouldin
  12. After driving the car quite a lot in the past few months I decided I wasn't quite happy with the seat rails and wanted to get the seats to sit lower in the car. So I managed to get hold of a pair of ep91 low rails made by William Tuite in Ireland. They're really well made and get the seating position as low as possible. Only problem was they are designed to work with recaro SR seats with the flat base, the trendline seats have a different bolt pattern and the base of the seat hangs down in the middle. So I decided to sell the EP3 prem seats and the rail setup in order to fund some r
  13. Looks great mate, some really good work gone into this.
