    Finally got some leave I have to take or loose it... :(

    Well gave me some time to do some things on the car I have not been able to do due to working so hard.

    Buckled Rim fixed (was on my spare for at-least 3 months) R400
    Quote to fix rear bumper I nicked in Dec, well pushed up against a concrete pillar. R1600
    Quote on new tires for the rims I bought last year R650 ea. semi's R850ea Reagal'a
    there is a pair of Dunlop semi's for R500...maybe.
    should be able to send her in net week to have a look at the motor, hopefully just a big end bearing failure.

    Off to go buy some body kit parts....

    I was actually not considering that
    Was just a post to show you all what we have here in SA

    So you see the kit I posted is what is aviallable of the shelf and I can add it to the rear bumper being fixed and painted.

    Not to sure bout which side skirts to go with though.

    see there is 2 options

    Well, it's your car so it's ultimately your choice lol...

    But if I were to choose, I'd go with the silver (fiberglass?) one. Looks cleaner and blends better, and it doesn't have the cheap-looking mesh hole.

    Finally some Feedback!

    Awesome!

    If I had my way I would get the same as the last pick on the 1st page of this thread posted by CorollaGT
    but alas that is not available here in SA

    Thanks for the opinion.

    This wknd I built my TRD front lip. (Cressida Lip)

    Had a spare front bumper and the lip lying around for about a year and just decided to finally do it.

    TRD LIP BUILD.jpg
    TRD LIP BUILD rear.jpg
    TRD LIP BUILD close.jpg
    This will go in for painting soon.
    To be All white
    ,)

    Would be the same lip I had on in previous pics. (see pg1)
    This time I just had a lot more time to make it fit better.
    Was shaving and trimming it to make a almost seamless join.
    Will have to use some glue or something to ensure they do not shift.

    The thing with this lip is that is square and fitted to a rounded edge...

    On last week Friday the new parts were collected, but I was only able to see it on Sat. :(
    I was jumping out of my skin with exitement
    Sat morning the stripping of the old and the assebling of the new Commenced!

    the parts unwrapped
    2014-07-26 11.54.13.jpg
    2014-07-26 11.54.25.jpg
    Felt like I was having a Mid year Xmas!!!

    the old one off
    2014-07-26 13.04.16.jpg

    The new parts put together.
    got some surgical gloves on to work with this and screw the lip back in place as it was before painting
    Inside
    2014-07-26 14.09.15.jpg

    outside
    2014-07-26 14.12.41.jpg

    And it's ON Whoop-Whoop!!!
    2014-07-26 16.40.45.jpg
    2014-07-26 16.42.35.jpg
    2014-07-26 16.42.46.jpg
    2014-07-26 16.46.16.jpg

    Straight on side view reveals the bit larger gap than what it had before under the indicator
    2014-07-26 16.49.38.jpg

    Was a whole lot more difficult to replace it than removing it, more to the fact that this is a pirate bumper and does not line up 100%, more like 85%.
    Had to twist and turn and battke with it to get it this good.
    May hands and arse still hurts... that inner wheel lining is a biatch! and those bricks become really hard.

    ...to be continued
    Added: Jul 29, 2014 1:55 PM
    On Sunday I gave her a quick wash and the new and old colors matched better.

    2014-07-28 12.04.35.jpg
    2014-07-28 12.29.46.jpg

    Next will be the rear bumper and Bonnet.

    Apparently that can be fixed, but it is really looking BAD with the Dog marks on her(*), so considering getting a new bonnet... maybe
    (*big dog jumped on the bonnet, scrathed and guaged it deep)

    Now to get the rear one off and get the rear apron from the shop to the paint shop

    Pity all this will not be done for Our Team Toyo Charity Run this coming Sunday :(

    I don't see a difference, except for the lip added to the bottom? Doesn't look like it fits well at all
