Looking good. The shot from behind the hood is my favorite.

All drooling aside, as worthy as the pictures may be, what are those plaques bolted into the floor of your trunk?

Cheers Meurz - Still got plenty of tread considering how much its traveled :lol:
What color mirrors? Im thinking black looks better over the white elephant ears.

The plaques on the floor are Toyota build plates.
Gotta quote these when ordering Group A parts through toyota Australia to prove legitimate ownership.

As for selling the stock bonnet.... thats a big :nono:

Ah, I see... I thought they just wanted the numbers from the two plates in your engine bay.

I think so.

Found the cause of the ticking noise. Appears Im missing the passenger side anti rattle clip from the rear caliper.
Really annoying tac tac tac noise......

Ah, common problem indeed. Same click you get (when braking) when you mount the anti rattle clips upside down, which I did in a hurry one time. :doh:

No anti rattle clips in OZ.... so need to place an order from Japan :?
Wallet felt a little heavy today but I found a quick fix for that.

We get raped hard in Australia for Redline.
$175 USD sitting there in comparison and thats with a discount :doh:

Got tired of the Odyssey PC680 always dying so replaced it with a Fullriver HC44
Twice the size and weight... plenty of cranking power and hopefully reliable.

^ that is the one downside of Odyssey batteries unless you drive the car everyday/every other day sort of thing or keep a small trickle charger on it.
car looks so beautifully well done & clean! 8)
