Hi all I'm Calvin, 20 from Hull, East Yorkshire, England. Had my Tezza nearly 6 months now, loved every second of it! Spent all my time and money on it so far and these are the results so I think it's about time I got a thread going. Hope you like...
Here is Terry the Tezza when i first picked him up. Completely standard, brilliant
SOLD! fresh import
First things first, full service, under seal, immobiliser, new Toyota MAP/ MAF sensor, Toyota oil filter and full new Toyota clutch kit
Now I was happy the car was running right time to get some goodies!!! BC Racing BR-Type coilovers
New Shoes! Rays Nismo LM-GT2 i picked up off a Skyline (OEM+
As much as i love the original alloys and was certain i wouldn't change them, I really loved the look of these and they ticked all the boxes. Deep dish, 17", 2 piece split, staggered and fatter. I like the fact they are Nismo which i though was a cheeky touch on the Toyota. Debated taking the sticker off but I like it. Nice to change things up now and then.
Wheels fitted without coilovers, plenty of arch gap.
Standerd suspension, untouched camber. Cheeky little tyre stretch to bring the tred just under the arch.
These rims made me find a new love for Autosol.
Terry's nuts where to big for the Nismos so i got some red tuner nuts to match the rim bolts, nice touch.
Quick dabble with Meguiars head light restorer. needs a lot more work. BEFORE
More Autosol dabbling and TRD oil cap
Time to fit the BC's, These where awkward to say the least, but worth it.
Out with the old, in with the new
In, featuring Bear the mechanic...well he's not a mechanic but he has a tool box
TRD Strut brace, would be rude not to with his new coilovers
low enough for now, need lower profile tyres and more stretch to prevent major rubbing.
Quick play with the rear camber to help accommodate the phat boys
The Toyota two. Bears Glanza along side Terry
The official Caltzza brochure
Intake upgrade (also took the vacuum tube off to stop the flap sticking up in the air intake)
The new wheels showed a lot of brake so silver Hammerite did a lovely job
Nismo caps to compliment
Time for a lighting upgrade BEFORE
AFTER. HID's 6000k, Ice blue xenon main beam, white LED side lights (also in the number plate lights) and rainbow yellow fogs
Cleaned the arch liners
Camber looking nice
Kleers acid free wheel cleaner, amazing stuff.
Cleaned rear arches
I love the fact the BEAMS engine is Yamaha tuned so i like the rep it
Was playing with photoshop and thik i want to take it in this direction over winter
99% going to do it (if i don't like i can spray it back so i'm really tempted)
Purple battery bar...the start of the the colour transformation. just ordered a purple radiator cooling panel too
And it should look something like this in a few moths hopefully
. Maybe a bit loud but i'm hoping I will look very tasteful. Roll on 2012!
And that pretty much it so far. i'm just desperately searching for some cheap wheels for winter now.
Also here are a few shots of Terry on a shoot, enjoy
