Ah sweet! I have always wanted a twin pipe that came up a foot and a half with a 45 deg angle but I don't have the welding skills :(

I hope it all comes out the way you plan it! Will be mad if it does!

I have finally got round to buying and fitting my coilovers, I bought a set of TA Techix coilovers, even though a lot of people don't think there much good

Heres a nice small comparison of my stock setup with Tein springs and my coilovers

Once they were fitted, I had too fine tune them to get the right height, this is with the front bottomed out and the rear with 2 adjusters

And here's my car jack after the car fell on it and made absolute bits of it

Getting alignment done, was told it wasn't too bad just a bit of toe on one side

I bought a yellow Demo reservoir sock because why not

I would never have chosen those wheels but they actually look really good. Rolled arches and a bit lower at the rear would look perfect. Totally changes the look of the car. Could imagine you going for the smoothed boot.

The wheels are a bit marmite to say the least :-P Yeah I'm kinda debating at the minute whether to smooth the boot or not

If you can then I think the smoothed boot would really go well with the rest of the look of your car.

Thanks lads :) I still haven't got the wheels on yet :P They have to be refurbished and I need to change the wheel studs as they might be too short, but I sent a few pics to different fb pages and the general cenus is that a lot people like it and think it's cool, but it's to compete for attention in a yaris when your up against civics and EVOs and is200 etc etc and especially anything vag

Today was japfest day in Ireland, and luckily I managed to secure a spot on the Toyota owners club stand, so I could show off the SSR MK1s and the lows :-P
