    I was hoping someone would buy that it looks great. Maybe we'll see you on an upcoming cruise and help bolster the AW's numbers.

    Thanks for comments guys, ive been a huge fan of the Toyota twincam Family for a long time. My first twincam was a TA22Celica with 2gt Yammah head twin solex, that got me hooked, and allways wanted a ae82TWINCAM Flat back in white since, had that for 9 years put a 6spd in it and loved it till the hail we had at Movie World in Sept a few years back killed it :( allways wanted a Sprinter But uno the story, rust and trying to get a clean one and the cost to build one up or fix previous Damage from being drifted,so i decided on the supercharged MR2 bang for Buck on Rails, I just sold my 88seca with 4agze101 conversion, loved the torque, sick of front wheel drives.

    Hey (Bustin) i love your wheels, i would love 17's but dont want my car to look like a Tonka Truck LOL, im thinking Konig 15" Rewinds with the the charcoal centre mmm nice would suit the white over silver theme. Hey "KRAZE" dont sell your car Buddy or i will have to come pay you a visit with my hired thugs. Hopefully meet some of you soon , Greetings from Pacific Pines GoldCoast .... :)

    I too was worried they'd look to big, but after having them for a year or so, they look just right. I was going to get 16'' but after a trial fit of the 17'', I was sold. 17'' isn't that big these days.

    Yes, i have finally got back my parts that needed fixing and plastic welding etc. The Front spoiler and right rear J Skirt. which had been damaged by previous owner.
    Dont have pictures yet.
    I have been thinking very seriously about spending some money on wheels when tax time comes about. Every place ive been has tried to sell me 17's. I have decided what type of wheels i would like to get. 15's by 7's ,4X100 .(40) offset they will come as,correct me if you feel it wont be a good fit, they should be. Konig Rewinds with the charcoal centre. $1250,includeing tyres from OZZY Tyres. i want the old school racer look . In someways im not sure if i want to lose the factory prestige look of the original "mint" teardrops by Toyota.And the comfertability, but on the other hand i crave the racer look. What's ur opinion.

    I have also been thinking of upgradeing the exhaust,mine being standard, for a little better flow and hopefully not to much louder as i enjoy hearing the motor behind my head. There isn't that much choice apparently. I have been quoted anything from $200-$170 for a cat back 2-1/4 inch mandrel bend system with 2-1/4 straight throu muffler as long as possible to standard length, with my original twin tip attached to the end.

    I have really enjoyed owning and driving this car and i feel i will keep it for a long time yet.

    ****** More up dates and progress to come.*******

    1250 for a set WITH tyres?! goddamn thats good! :)
    wheels are easy to change back and forth... ive got a couple sets i change around just for fun. i drive around with my teardrops every once in a while.. but when i feel like a wannabe racer, i chuck on my set of black watanabe's (veeeery simmilar to the rewinds) and matt black SC engine lid! [88]


    car looks great btw. damn 6grand is nothing! :)

    Anyway i'll see how kind the tax man is to me. My family friend sais to me he can't and doesn't have time to fix my panel damage and respray everything that i would like [:u], so he pointed me in the direction of another long life friend who has a Paint & Panel shop on the Coast that is excellant at matching Metalic paint. I got a quote from another guy up near my work to just to see the differance in cost of quotes . Well first quote is $1700. And thats to spray my front spoiler and rear J skirt , spray front and rear two tone bumpers again , remove all dents in mumerous locations and fix the panel damage and damage where J skirt attaches, plus respray Drivers door where it has been buffed back to metal allmost. My Friends mate will do indenticle work for $1200 which im happy with.So the wheels might have to wait just a little longer.

    that seem exspensive compared with what i had done, rear 1/4 panel cut and a new panel welded in and painted, sideskirts painted and mirror painted all for $800.

    Hey Thanx Shiv :)

    I finally got the car back from the spray painters after a week in lymbo. They went over the whole thing. Front and rear bumpers painted and clear coated.New pin stripes. Fixed all panel damage. Front spoiler resprayed and side skirt which was fixed too. All shopping dents taken out and whole drivers side re-done.they also painted the eyelids and the bonnet to i think, plus polished and buffed to a high sheen :) car looks like new.Very happy with the work. i payed grand in cash. As well i got a new 3-point self arming imobiliser with the added wind-up window mechanism fitted. Didnt want the hassel of a siren or the back up siren.The 3-point was a Rhino because of the faltless remotes and the auto wind up feature of a Mongoose. Can add a turbo timer if needed HAA HAAA lmao.

    Next on the list saving for some Konig Rewinds, as i have just bought our first home , so the wife would kill me if i came sporting home with new wheels.LOL seriously!

    here are some old pics of the Damage >

    Finally.... my cusco strut brace has arrived from japan. $211.00 Auzy dollars to my door. Not bad seeing local importers were going to charge me $250, Plus the chance of finding a second hand one is near impossible.I just took off my cooler and my rear strut nuts and fitted the cusco strut brace and tightened it all up, put cooler back on and took some very happy snap shots for you to see.
