Well, that's the body kit fitted and the cars paintwork finished. Craig of Rukus Customs has done an absolutely fantastic job, his attention to detail is awesome.













The job list to complete the car is getting smaller:


Fix the exhaust issue
Replace a couple of fuel pump fittings
Wire up the wiper motor
Fit the wiper arm
Fit the harnesses
Make the template for the floor mats and organise getting them made
Fit the VIN plate back on
Fit the registration plates

The end is near :lol:

One of the last jobs to do is fit the rear TRD anti-roll bar. All the mounting fixtures were missing from the fabricator so I took the opportunity to get some Techno Toy Tuning items to enhance the set-up and give plenty of adjustment in the set-up.


TTT T3 Parts










TRD Anti-Roll Bar (ARB or Sway bar in some countries)





Car jacked up and put on the ramps to make a start :)







Drop link mounting blocks bolted onto the chassis rails...

Just drive it - do the rest later!

I have my harnesses wrapped around the cross bar in the cage - effectively looping back through a buckle on themselves.

Unfortunately, my harness shoulder straps have D buckles on them, they are not the wrap around type.
