New TTE bumper and arm rests

Postby Dimis » Wed Apr 14, 2010 7:51 pm

Today some more parts arrived. As you may know i had ordered from USA black arm rests for all my door panels. Well here is how they look. I am not sure if the wood kit matches with black arm rests. What do you think? My other option is to use the normal switch door switches. I might even cover them with 3M carbon fiber film.

Second Option:

Today I also received the TTE replica bumper (Fiber glass bumper). As you may see from the pics the bumper does not look bad. I even tried to match it on my car and it seems to fit well. ie it is not bigger than the OEM bumper like the Legana Asi purchased a couple of weeks ago. The only cons is that the bumper came with the now holes and clips in order to attach the bumper on the car. Also there are no holes for the fog lights. So this means more work for the paint shop. Furthermore there is a small crack at the bottom side of the bumper (probably happened during transportation) due to not good packaging. There were no bubble wraps or other means of protection in the carton box. Anyway there is not much i can do know. The shop is quite a few thousans miles away from home. So i have arranged on Monday to take the car at Toyota (where my mate works) and have it fitted and painted of course. I will also paing the bonnet since there a few chips from the stones on the road.

not sure about the wood effect don't think they match the rest of the car looks bit tacky and I also don't think the carbon would go really with your car. I think the look of your interior is more plush and luxury so in my opinion I'd go with the 1st option or maybe even have them sprayed the same colour as the outside if you having so paint work done ??
that's just my thoughts, bumper looks good tho :D
