    I'm not sure how I feel about the billet flex, Hoffman didn't break one for years yet I know a couple people that have so might just do it and call it done, Converter I had in my head would be around $1200ish, but I know TCE have a bloody good name for getting them bang on, and this car is pretty much about "do it right, do it once"


    Yeah I have been up adding it up mostly because curious etc but I've been really fortunate to have some good mates and saved a fuck load of money, at this stage it owes me a bees dick under 31K, probably another 5K in it to be 100% finished..... until better diff stuff... and G42 turbo stuff.... and new bottom end stuff.....


    Also, fitted bumper last night, shit night pics but you get the idea, good to see it with a bumper for the first time in 5 fucking years!! Also the first time it's actually looked complete.

        Lol, the skid factory VL would be worn out by the time this fucking thing ever turns a wheel under its own power.


        Cooler hangs out a spot but will have to deal with it,

        Also, decided to bolt on front plate quickly for "fuck you" pics (refer last pic)....

            Thanks mate.

            Found I had somewhere along the lines had the headlight protectors that came off this stashed away, pulled them out to fit them up again...

            Gave them a clean up, the little "clear" button thingys were not so clear anymore, but they did come off pretty easily, pretty handy they even have little dots were to put them on...

                Sorted and bleed the brakes, couldn't get shit from the rears, pulled lines etc here and there and turned out to be some shit blocking up the new braided line for the rear that I dug out, flushed some shit through it and blew it out, so has brakes now, yay and shit,

                These are obviously taken from original molds and fit perfect, all the holes etc went straight on with original holes etc, although the rears look like they should be further out, might re-drill and do that yet


                Also finished off tank breather lines and threw the cover back on, had to try one of the weld wheels off the corolla, I kinda like it but it sits a touch wide and if it was to squat a lot it might rub the bumper trim a bit

                      Had a Speedflow filler neck welded on it so I cut that cunt off and Scott welded it to the spare one along with a new -10 fitting for the breather, took them up to dip in the acid to clean them up, came up bloody good too!

                      Also cut the radiator shroud hole bigger to suit the 16" Spal fan, and Scott welded up the holes from the 14" fan that used to be mounted to it,

                      The mounts didn't fit overly awesome, Made up some shit looking 10mm spacers to bolt it too, ground the welds down from the old holes and dropped it all off to be powder coated in gloss black like the cooler pipes etc, should pick them up late next week sometime...

                          Cam covers and fan shroud came back, looks ok but quality is not the same as the first ones items they did, in fact 1 of the cam covers have a bit of shit through it so might end up taking them back to be sorted,

                          Bought this foam type shit to put on the edge of the shroud where it sits against the fins, should also stop the shroud rubbing through anywhere,

                          Fitted the fan and shroud to the radiator, pretty happy with how it looks.

                          Put the baffle plate back in the cam covers, forgot to drill/tap the new cover so did that and fitted that side as well,
