Well the merc is gone and yet again im back to toyota , and this time for good !

So i picked this up ! I was originally looking for something to wreck ! But when i went to see this
i couldnt say no ! Facelift front bumper 128,000 miles and owned by a 40 year old woman !

However on getting home i noticed it wasnt LSD , Which i was happy about because i knew it wasnt wrecked before
However this car is spotless ! Lots of stuff to do over the next week so ill keep updating this thread :)

If anyone has Vortex Spoiler or nice boot lid lip spoiler let me Know :)

So then i got to work painted the rear bumper , Clay bar outside , full buff and engine detail !

Image
Image


So the springs are in happy enough !
Ordered 60mm ones got 50mm seem to be fine, leave them a few weeks to settle then ill pop the coilovers i ordered
stick the Vortex spoiler on and plates/HIDs Friday :)


Image

[b]So i got new plates , Gave her a buff , Removed the spoiler , Full service ..

b]Next week Wheels are getting polished , Front coilovers and 20mm spacers / 15mm Spacers front / Rear and finally rear bumper reflectors ! going for US look :)
[/b]Going for US look !

So heres whats been done,

So tomorrows plan is Full HD wax , 10mm spacers on each side of the rear , Fit roof spoiler and then start looking at what coilovers are best :) if anyone has any ideas let me know ! Ohh and get the Bumper lights fitted :D

Roof spoiler is fitted :D .. Back from paint (Full respray off RCC ricks car care)  , 20mm spacers all round , painted the tyres and shes literally 100% perfect , also got wheels and new badges !

Looking good mate! Interested to see the reflectors in the rear bumper too as I've got a pair to fit (with LED fogs in ) and deciding on position at the mo (will be low but not sure on how far apart yet)
