            lol yeah its so nice to have a factory fitted TRD rear brace the plastics and leather cover really are finishing touches i like , Ive put braces in the back of other cars and you have to cut plastic trim or leave covers off and it looks hacked unless your stripping the interior.

              whoo found out some good news today , thanks to a mate that works within the Japanese car industry he was looking over some pics i sent him of the new car and asked for my chassis and engine serials etc as he had an idea it wasn't an ss-ii , he did some checking and its the better ss-iii limited witch explains why i have the LSD and different springs to every other ss-ii i could find they made a few of mine as part of the 25th anniversary celebrations along side the ss-ii ltd during the first few months of 1997 as soon as they finished the run they then made the ss-iii with the beams red top and the high GT-four type wing rather than the lower 3 point wing i have.

                took the door card off today to see what size speakers i could put up front and how much room there was , acutally not bad should be able to run some good components in there. ( no JDM bondage tape tho )

                while it was off decided to fix a few things .
                first there was this cloth trim thats letting go
                [IMG][/IMG]
                and a little glue later
                [IMG][/IMG]
                and then there was the felt runner for the window. it was totally split and hanging off
                [IMG][/IMG]
                some glue and a lot of patience to do about 1 inch at a time and its now sorted again

                  well not a happy update folks , last friday i had a crash in the celica im totally gutted.

                  was on my way to meet some club members in a local town and was a little late so took the back roads , the F**ing council have been out and scattered loose chippins over tar to try and cover a few holes and rough patches and i was on this loose crap just entering a corner as a tractor's nose came out from a gateway. i swerved the nose of my car missed but the back just broke out and slid right in to the tractor spinning me 360 in to the hedge. lucky the hedge was soft so one side only got a few little scuffs but the tractor has made a missive impact in the rear quarter. i have tried to push out the worst of it but will need bodywork/respray which i wont be able to afford for months
