TrisK's TOMS MK1 GT - Complete Tear Down in Progress


Recommended Posts

So as a few of you may know, I sold my Glanza in August 2011. Ive missed it since.

So on Saturday I travelled over to Poole to go and see Marc Moss, to view his lovely MK1 Toms kitted GT. I'd already fallen in love with the car online, and seeing it properly in the flesh at JAE.

I made a deal with Marc, and left with the car.

This is in a random car park in Poole about an hour after buying the car from Marc

After owning the car about 2 hours, it got its first photoshoot in my ownership when one of the guys from Marcs club approached me and asked if they could photograph it

I got the boat back on Sunday morning, and by 3pm it was sat on my drive next to the Polo

And my dads racing Lancer estate, but we will ignore that.

Today ill be going to get it weighed, and swapped over to a Guernsey registration.

But im so happy, ive missed boost, ive missed starlets.

Ive got a massive rep to live up to with this car. but Marc has given me one hell of a headstart, hes built a beautiful car.

It will be in March's edition of Jap Performance I think Marc said.

I have a few plans, but nothing major.

1. Tidy up front bumper and side skirts (as they have some damage)

2. Collect niggly bits i need to refit rear interior if i want to (Marc gave me the main of the seats, its just plastics etc i need)

3. Duck Spoiler

4. Forge engine (long term)

Bitches, Im back

I went and got her registered in Guernsey today.

So she got weighed, verdict was 860kg with spare wheel, and half a tank.

Spare wheel maybe 15kg, and half a tank is probably another 15kg.

So its about 830kg dry :)

im still grinning from ear to ear when i look at her or drive her :D
