  1. So here is my 2001 Toyota Yaris, this is my second one in just over 3 years, I've owned this since October 2019 and I had my previous T Sport from March 2017 to November 2019. Current photos: I bought this car with a few good mods on it, Tanabe Catback, Whiteline rear ARB, Polybushed drop links, Recaro Trendlines from a CH1 Accord, OMP Racing GP Wheel, OMP Front Strut Brace, K&N Typhoon induction kit, Tein S Tech lowering springs and Enkei Racing S replica wheels and a few other little bits. I have since added to this list quite a bit and changed a few things. Here is the full spec list of the car: ●Accord Type R CH1 Recaro Trendlines ●OMP Racing GP 330mm steering wheel ●OMP Boss Kit ●OMP Front Strut Brace finished in Ibiza Pearl blue ●Whiteline rear anti-roll bar ●Tein S Tech 35/38 springs ●Custom 4 point underbrace ●Cusco brake master cylinder stopper (not arrived yet) ●Hypersport polybush drop links and arb bushes ●Hypersport HS-0001 short shifter ●Vitz RS Optional Extra LED Taillights ●Vitz RS Front lip ●Vitz RS Dual clear bumper lenses ●Vitz RS Front badging ●Vitz RS Scuff plates (not arrived yet) ●Vitz RS Sunvisors (not arrived yet) ●Tanabe Medalion catback exhaust & decat ●K&N Typhoon induction kit ●Fog light cold air feed ●Genuine Enkei RP01 15x7 ●Sunstrip ●Team Heko wind deflectors ●Glanza/vertical rear wiper mod ●Debadged rear ●Tinted rear windows 5% ●Tinted side indicators ●Yellow brake calipers ●OEM Aerial shortened ●E12 Corolla Variable Intermittent wiper stalk ●Sony DSX-A410BT single din ●Pioneer TS Dash Speakers ●Soundproofed ●Password JDM Engine Bay dress up ●Epman Racing Oil Filler cap ●Black aluminium battery clamp ●LED Interior dome light and heater lights ●LED Reverse, rear fog and reg plate lights Here are some older photos from before I owned it: And here are some photos during my ownership from October ascending to February:  After the last two photos all that changed was the wheels. I was supposed to be going on my first track day this week (April 3rd 2020) however due to corona virus they've shut the track down temporarily. I still have plans to do a track day in the future when all this is over. My additional plans for the car doesn't consist of anything big at the moment as I don't have the funds: ●Ph2 interior swap ●Coilovers or dampers ●Torque damper ●Better tryes as these Rainsport 5s I've just put on are horrendous ●USDM Sidelights ●Lightweight crank pulley (& maybe flywheel) ●Weicher wishbone brace ●Refurb headlights ●Remove rear seats ●Refurb wheels ●Front camber bolts ●And a few other little bits If this post never gets updated, follow my Instagram where I always post photos of it @aye.adxm I doubt anyone's gonna read this anyway, but I just thought I'd post it for documentation to read back on in the future.
  2. Lou's t sport

    Hi all. I thought it was about time I started a little thread on my yaris build. It's nothing too crazy but it's turned out pretty much how I was hoping! Starting from the beginning! I had a gs300, was ridiculously low and needed a daily as I was ruining the Lexus using it all the time. So after looking at a few t sports i bought this ph1 red t sport for the small sum of £750, the plan was to keep it practical, but looking fairly smart and handling well. When I bought it the bodywork had admittedly seen better days, both front arches had bubbled from rust, and it was pretty faded. The car had full history, exedy clutch, blitz nurspec s, k&n typhoon intake and tein s tech springs already fitted. First job on the list was getting the paint work looking presentable. A full cut polish and wax later and the colour really started to look good again Also removed the badges and rear wiper, I also added a square front plate. I then won some mx5 enkei wheels for a mere £22 on eBay with near new tyres. I absolutely loved how it sat on the 14's but they were too skinny and their is minimal tyre choice for 14" wheels Next up was to paint the roof to cover the lacquer peel, I also painted the centre of the front bumper. I then bought some cobra side winder seats, made some custom seat rails using the existing t sport sliders. The only thing left to do was buy some wider wheels with some 195 50 15 tyres. Luckily ed had rob fish's old momo wheels with brand new Rain sport 3's for sale, so I traded my mx5 wheels and cash for Them. I ran it like this for the next few months, I was really happy with it and was a perfect daily. Unfortunately the engine mounts were showing their age, you could really feel the engine moving when driving it hard. I made my own solid engine mounts using tiger seal, previously done it to my puma engine fiesta and it worked a treat. Once I fitted them it change how the car felt completely, so it was time to strip it out and make it fun. Then went and picked up some dectane led rear lights That was the last modification I done to "nug" Unfortunately the body work started looking tired and I kinda fell out of love with it. I then get tagged in a Facebook post, an old fella put his daughters yaris t sport up for sale a few miles away from my house, a ph1 thunder grey, 90k miles and the shell was absolutely mint, no rust what so ever! Rang him up and went through to see it straight away, ended up paying £400 And he included brand new padgid disc and pads too! Within 24 hour of buying it, parts started getting swapped from the red one. the red one got retired mostly back to standard, other than tein lowering springs and blitz nurspec Within a few hours of posting it up for sale, it was sold. Pretty gutting to see it go but at least I had a clean new shell. I then bought a ph2 rear bumper Rear end got stripped, boot floor painted black and all the interior plastics and roof lining went black Custom side skirt extensions Front rhino lip, cold air feed from the n/s foglight, And black badges Tein springs and custom back box delete was fitted. Next on the list was a new motamec red suede steering wheel and canards. Cleaned the engine bay up, also painted a few bits red. Here's a few photos how it currently looks
