Hi Mark, very nice, where did you get your wiper arms from and how much did they set you back ?

Cheers, Tommy

I went to lexus for them, not the cheapest think there was nt much change from £100.

Some good pics mate, any more plans?

Stav

Few things to do over the winter, i got a small sheet of carbon twill that i m gonna play with on the covers in the engine bay, looks simple enough so see what happens!lol

Wantin to do the darker headlights and maybe de-tango them. They need replaced anyways, covered in scratches on the lenses.

Few more things i m considering, really want more power!lol but other things come first.

Nice work, think spraying the headlights like others have done on here, would look good on yours :) Also how hard was it to make up the seat brackets,subframe?

Thinkin about tryin the lights over winter.

I had my mate make the frame up, it was an mx-5 subframe that came with seat, couple of extensions here and there and a wee bend. If i remember right you can get a subframe from bide for the tezz, but i m a bit tight!lol

Cheers for all the comments guys :D

hi,did the rear strut brace in the boot make any difference,to the handling,etc and was it fairly easy to fit because ive been thinking of getting one too,cheers??

I noticed quite a bit of a difference to be honest, as i have the EDFC controller a had to soften the back up more as it was too stiff in corners!lol now with the lower brace its even better get no roll/wobble or flex.

An update of sorts i suppose, not the best tho :crybaby:

About 6 weeks ago the car was parked in its normal place outside the house when i heard a crunch. I pop outside to find that my neighbor across the street had reversed into my rear quarter!(not parked in the same place as where the pictures were taken)

At first did nt think the damage was too bad, until i took it too a body shop, the rough quote was around the 2k mark. So all went thru the insurance.

The cars still there just now waiting on the rear lights arriving from the states! Been to see the car and the work is top class. Had a few other bits done while the car was there. The front arches have been slightly rolled as they started rubbing and the dodgy coloured other quarter has been fixed too.(Look further up and you ll see a side view of the drivers side and you ll see what i mean!)

Now on a seperate note, anyone used Accident Exchange before? Thats whose dealing with all the work and the claim for repairs. They ve given me a courtesy car till mine is fixed, got a 58 plate IS220D SE! So cool!lol

Keep them in mind for any non fault accidents guys, dont have to tell your insurance company so saves your no claims! :winky:

Hopefully once i get the car back can start putting some of my plans into place :D

Gutted about the accident mate, ive used a third party company before. really quite good.

Whats the next plans then fella?

Well wanna get the stuff i ve got here on the car so thats, folding mirrors, flashing brake lights, rad panel and a new set of bonnet lifters.

Then the engine bays gettin really hit, paint carbon and shiny bits!lol all will be revealed soonish! :winky:

I m really tempted to pop some subs in the boot too but just trying to work out how to run an amp from the standard setup :unsure:

I didn't realise you'd got a turbo mate?

Hope the repairs all go smoothly though, that's a proper bummer when that happens!

Excuse my ignorance but eh?lol Turbo?

All the repairs are finished just the lights to come back now.
