    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)....

    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

    This is obviously assuming all your AUX outputs are doing something. Ie idle control, and the other does water spray, and the other updates your Instagram automatically etc.

    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!

    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...
