  1. That's not actually GT, it's a 2004 car. Clearly imported from Ireland I wonder if it wasn't imported from Japan before that. Other than that (and the spoiler) nice looking car.
  2. That's because 2zz Gen7 owners already have Toyota BS'ing power figures
  3. Very clean job, looks great. Love how you put the edge on the cutaway. Until I read that I was thinking "Do they normally come like that?" (Yeah I might not have looking in my engine bay for a while.)
  4. Sorry, that was really directed at the owners of the cars I have photographed. I don't often take a pic of my own car unless it's a club stand line up as it's kinda dented, poorly wrapped and.. I see it everyday so don't need photos I am happy to submit pics I've taken of other club members cars, if that's ok?
  5. Anything I've taken and posted up on here you are free to use/submit. I often reduce the size of them to save space so if they're a bit smaller than you'd like I am sure I can supply them full size as jpegs (or whatever format you prefer) or I'll still have the raw files for them, assuming I didn't take them with my phone but I wouldn't think anything I took with my phone to be calender worthy.
  6. I don't know if it will fit on the 1zz, I would assume so but the intake/expansion chamber is different between the 1zz and 2zz Not really, it's a Warm Air Intake. I doubt it gives any extra a HP and there is a good possibility that you lose some compared to the stock airbox. If you have a spare £400 plus then Nengun.com sell them I think they are just shy of £300 but expect plenty of shipping and import duty to kick you in the nuts. As Jesse, in the Fast and the Furious, (should have) said "...Over Priced parts from Japan" But keep checking Ebay, someone might import them
  7. Other than the carbon number plate surround, are you planning on modding your car? I'm sorry, I love your car, it's as nuts as it is awesome.
  8. Making your car look like something it isn't is fine, in my book. Badging it that way as if you are trying to actually fool people you have some better than you do, I don't really get. When I was looking around for one, the amount of Skyline GTST's or GTT's I saw when for sale that had GTR body kits and Badges was embarrassing. Saw the odd one where the owner had purchased at GTT badge that was designed like the GTR one, I thought that was fine. I mean there was no question the GTR had the more aggressive looking kit but if you're missing little things like 4wd, an extra turbo
  9. First thing I noticed about this wasn't the X5 wheels or the how low it sits. It was the Ferrari F430 bodykit! I googled this car, I couldn't find a single Ferrari badge on it, in fact the badge at the back is the Celica Dragon one. I respect that, the kit looks good and he's not pretending it's anything other than a kit.
  10. Thanks, these 3 came out ok but the main piece is... meh. Two minds on whether to put it on. Probably will but will definitely need another go at that piece. Just hoping heat and glue don't cause a disaster. Got a few layers of lacquer on there today, will put a couple more on them tomorrow. As for the Lexus, yeah the SC wasn't prettiest car Toyota ever made. But seeing another in Psychedilc was enough, I've already decided on the next colour
  11. I'm afraid I can't. I mean I could tell you... But then you'd go and do a better job of it than me Oh ok, I'll tell you but only because it's you... and the fact that you could google crackle paint effect like I did and find out that way Basically it's painting over semi-dry (waterbased) kids glue I used elmers but I think anything in the waterbased classroom glue has the same effect. Water it down a bit, depending on the glue and paint it over the base colour (make sure the base colour has fully dried) then leave it to dry a bit (I left it for 15-20mins but I th
  12. Unfortunately the outcome was kinda messy and I am not sure on the main piece right now but see how that ends up when it's fully dry. Trying to get an even coat with a brush over semi-dried glue requires more practice. However, do have access to an old compressor which, if I can get working, might make the next attempt better. On a seperate note, drove passed a Lexus SC with the same 3m Psychedlic wrap Looking at alternative colours now.
  13. Hmmm, not seen any red primer. This red is lighter than I wanted but I'm hoping it won't matter when I'm done... Hoping
  14. Painted some engine plastics Maybe I should of used grey primer and not white... They look more pink than red in this picture. But, this is just the base. Assuming I can pull off what I am going to try with these. Got it to work once so far out of a lot of attempts but running out of time so need to do it this week. Of course, if it doesn't work then these plastics will be ruined and I will need to buy some more for the next attempt
  15. A mascot for my engine bay (it seemed to be the thing to do) Engine bay is black and red so needed to follow that colour scheme. Japan inspired, albeit via an American creator. Reveal at Donington (unless you want to guess) Now to try and do something different with my engine plastics, which has so far not worked in any of my tests
