Was that for a set of 16 or 20 or for just set of 4?
That's for a 20 set
No problem melady
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....
Well just for a bit
What you all think of this??
and now I'm getting notifications again..
have not had any in awhile, even though I have alerts on here
Maybe they got fixed on their own again lol
Yeah I started getting notifications as well lol... I'm telling you, it's random!
So what do you guys think of the spoiler kit???
yes a cBass would look good, but cant custom fit it..
no on the sticker bomb front lip, please! rather you have a body kit than that..
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
Would think this is fibre and cost R500
This is plastic (so they say) and costs R800
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!
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.
the silver one looks like TRD side skirts but with that minor opening...id rock those.
Well I would have said something earlier, but I think they are both ugly lol. Since I had nothing nice to say,
just because you like them flat as fuck and no design
Have not had time to go and get them as I been working 12h+ days
Nevermind taking the bumber in to gget fixed.
So I hope to get them on the wknd with the matching rear one and take it all one time to get painted with the bumper.
Maybe I'll through the front one in there too with the TRD Cressida lip to be color coded aswell
Everything is AWESOME!!!
That is going to be +/-R5000
Yeah cbass, like you have a right to complain, I even put a line in my side skirts but NOOOOOOO you hated those.... so my next skirts won't have anything in them, just for you.
So they didn't have stock of the rear apron...
maybe a good thing as today I spoke to a mate who knows the peeps who are the suppliers.
Autotechnics - check them FB.
Neither, they are both ugly, they have cBass written all over them
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.
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...
Sending in for paint today
Took it all appart
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
Felt like I was having a Mid year Xmas!!!
the old one off
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
And it's ON Whoop-Whoop!!!
Straight on side view reveals the bit larger gap than what it had before under the indicator
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

On Sunday I gave her a quick wash and the new and old colors matched better.
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
Choushoku Charity Run 2014
So what you All think??!!??
I don't see a difference, except for the lip added to the bottom? Doesn't look like it fits well at all
