  1. Ooh yea baby. Dems bearings. That's why they called it lagoon blue: Dive right in!
  2. I ran out of gold paint; again. So only managed to get halfway though. But it was much needed; it looked so tired when you opened the bonnet. But I am impressed with the rivnuts and aluminium washers. I can't understand why I didn't do this sooner! (They have not been tightened in this picture which is why the panels don't sit flush )
  3. I went for Eicher in the end because I left it too late to get the discs. I only had 24 hours to get them on before the M.O.T so had to pick what was in stock local with enough time to get the coats of paint on. My own fault completely. I'm probably going to get shot for this; but I didn't think it would make much difference performance wise. The calipers are small and are nothing special on these: my thoughts being they should be enough to stop the car. For as much as I love Celicas i think the standard brakes do the job for a sub 200bhp car. Braking performance has increased 10 fold even though they are bedding in; however the old pads were nearly shot, piston seized in the calipers and the discs were warped... I did put brembo pads on them though! +1 rep for the faith in rust!
  4. That looks so much better against your alloys. It might be as mine are anthracite; the colour doesn't pop as much. The contrast is great against those calipers; they are spot on I'm just glad to know i'm in good company with my brakes I'm surprised to hear that about the rust though... I wonder what they coat it in.
  5. New discs and pads on... After spraying the hubs and vents of course. I opted away from the M-Tecs as unheard a few users and the neighbour opposite me's RX-8 squealing when braking. I should add. I'm my effort to paint these in rose gold; it actually looks like they have rusted regardless... so a waste of time and resources
  6. You sold it to them! How come ? Surely that spec on a 140 would have been an easy sell for more £.
  7. I whacked out the orbital and my mix of meguiers scratch X and cerium oxide powder... The sun roof looked like someone had sand-papered it with 200 grade. It was horrible. 5 minutes later with little effort; thia works really well on glass guys and girls. Hope you get this sorted mate. Let us know how you get on. Totally agree; It looks long doesn't it. Looks longer than mine; but I think mine's girthier.
  8. Hehehe ... They usually charge for it... well Kev does anyway
  9. I was hoping to get it to its 17th birthday but... The pot holes round here psychologically got the better of me.
  10. Aye. It was a full scorpion system but the rear section and silencer is in my garage. It used to run parallel with the subframe like the Toyota one. Previous owner changed it as it was too quiet, which I have to agree. I like this, its loud initially on choke and has a deep bass to It. It does mellow down when warm but sounds simply lovely above 6200 rpm. Being honest it will most likely need a new rear section soon from the clamp onwards; but will probably look towards another custom one, the sound is a big deal to me. I don't use it during the week so don't have to worry about waking people up and being inconsiderate; which I am grateful for.
  11. I have used a free software tool called paint.net which uses layering image tools like Photoshop. It's works well enough for me to see a change. You can spend hours making it look perfect or 5 minutes changing alloys etc to see if the combination suits.
  12. I can hear your manager now: "If your I'll enough to work on your car your I'll enough to come in work." That's a bloody good idea. I have an old B&D mouse; never thought of that. Cheers!
  13. I wish I could have done the rest in gold; but my wallet had to stand in. And it made sence to get it done whilst the subframe was removed. Could always paint some tin foil
  14. AMS resolved this. My god damn new flip key conversion was putting the transponder in a location that would not disable the immobilizer.
