Today I visited my mechanic and changed the rear right knuckle. I took some pictures of the worn bush to have an idea how catastrophic it can be to your car if you leave it like that.

by the way i found out that many tuners such as megan racing sell uprated bushes for the rear knuckles for small amount of money. You just have to have the correct tool to remove the bush and fit the new bushes. If i did a bit more search i could save a lot of money and not go for the oem part from Lexus.

I managed to get two discontinued TRD air bag cancellers. As you can imagine I am going for a new set of bucket recline seats!

I fitted today the new key cover. It was not a straight fitment as I thought. It needed a bit of trimming on the top side in order to match the other half of the key case. I have attached the Toyota part number if anyone wants to have the same cover.

I returned home on Saturday and today I fitted the carbon fiber bonnet. Actually it is not a TRD version but a rare Eleven nines bonnet. As I mentioned in the past it was painted badly from the previous owner so it needed a lot of work to be done in order to look again. So I took the easy way for start an wrapped it with di-noc glossy and fitted also the Aerocatch hood pins. Well I think the looks of it is much better than I thought. Here are some pics. Let me know what you think. BTW it is lightweight like paper. A lot of weight is reduce by removing the oem bonnet

I will get some better pictures tomorrow in daylight

Hi, I do not have a TOYOSPORT manifold. I got mine from an Australian exhaust shop many years ago. DKNE exhausts. I do not know if they still exist. I did not have any problems with TTE crandle during installation.
