I know right, But that's not all! Got a brand new set of MeisterR coilovers for £400, OEM JDM rear bumper with valance for £30, Toyota wind deflectors for £25, OEM JDM wings for a tenner each, TRD wing for £90. Pretty much I just hunt for bargains every day

cleared and aimed the washer jets, amazing what a tiny bit of dirt in them can do.

 

removed the ripped bonnet padding and the broken rain tray.

 

drove it for miles and miles, enjoyed every inch of it!

Today I gave the interior and boot  a good hoover and clean and polish. Need to get some decent looking mats. 

Then washed and polished the car, had planned on taking off wheels and giving the inside of them a clean too and painting the caliphers but with no jack that’s a job for another day. 

Also noticed which I can’t believe I hadn’t before that the front driver headlight has a hole in glass lens which previous owner has put a piece of clear sellotape over. And the front indicator on same side has a wee chip along the top edge of the lens. Means that’s another two things on my list of things needed replaced. 

Oh I wish I could win the lottery!!!

Finally the weather had been warm and dry enough over the last couple of days to start painting the underneath.

I know it’s not the best time of year to start but I’ve been itching to do it since October when I bought it  :)

 

I knew the subframes were ok so after checking the rest of the floor, I started wire brushing and primed the rear section first (the easiest because it’s jacked up on the driveway) and it could rain at anytime :(

 

Today I’ve done the first coat of paint on the areas that I prepared, I was hoping to get a second coat on but this time of year it’s taking ages to dry. :angry:

just using it as a car this week. to and from work each day, roasting small children on the bonnet very, that sort of thing.
found a usb stick to plug into the headunit, so much better than a dodgy aux lead into a phone. bought some nice cleaning products to show it some love at the weekend.

Well I was outside again today still painting the underneath of the car, when I heard this........Hello mate I’ve got a delivery for you and it’s to big to go through your letter box.

Ok mate,  I said, leave it by the side of the car.

I can’t do that mate, he said you will need to go into your house and come out again so I know you live here !

I can’t at the moment, I called out from underneath my car, because I’m painting the underneath of my car and I’ve got paint all over my hands.

You will have to, he said or I can’t leave it.

Ok mate in that case, I called out, I’m currently out at the moment and should be back home this afternoon after 3pm :lol:

He went away and believe it or not came back at 4pm and I opened my front door and took the delivery off him :hysterical: unbelievable !

The weather has been dry and I have finally finished painting the underneath today.

I also wire brushed, sanded, primed and painted any other metal that had surface rust and cleaned and painted under the wheel arches as well, just to tidy it up.

Luckily there were no horror stories lurking underneath that I hadn’t been aware of, other than I will be needing a new exhaust in the not to distant future and finding a split shock absorber gator.

The total cost of paint, primer and brushes, to do the job came to £38 :)

Just a good job I didn’t have to include an hourly rate labour charge as well :lol:

What paint did you use as this is a job I'm planning on doing and still not 100% settled on what paint will give a good long term finish.

It was nothing special, more Old Skool, but I’ve used it in the past and have always been happy with it.

It’s “Rustins” Satin Black paint for metal and “Rustins” Red Oxide primer.

I like the look of Satin black rather that gloss when I’m painting underneath but they do Gloss is you prefer.

Today what I done on my celica was finally get my sunstrip put on. 

Was easy enough but trimming it along the edge I kinda messed up a little but not too visible when looking. 

I added the club logo with a little bit of a twerk and obviously a little advertisement of the man that made it happen too.

cheers mook
