Just a quick update: I connected up the Celica Tweeters. As SwissFerdi said, well kind of.

The connectors for the tweeters were already installed in the door! So all I had to do was unscrew the mirror screws, put on the the tweeters and plug the connectors in! No splicing needed! wooohoo! Sounds good too. Joy Joy!



This evening I also drew up some stuff with Autocad as I will be making some Horn badges, engraving some vent symbols on to my freshly painted dash parts, and I also drew the rear wing SSIII logo even though I don't have one...

If anyone wants these drawings send me a message and I'll email them to you.
I have them in Autocad, and they can be opened by most programs like Corel Draw (which is what we use in work).
I have no clue what size the SSIII logo should be. Anyone know? I traced them all using photos (including a ruler for the vent symbols), but have no clue of the SSIII size and I think the horn badge for a 7th gen is 30mm or so. I'll check my horn.

I hope to make some snazzy new badges for my horn with the CO2 laser soon.

By the way in the vent symbol I drew a Celica shape instead of a generic car shape. Line thicknesses will need to be changed, a bit of trial and error before any engraving, but for vinyl cutting no mods needed. If you can find a sign cutter or a company with a laser cutter and someone with experience with engraving, then there should be no problem in making some nice stuff.

I can make you some money if you're willing to part with those Euro splitters. wink.gif

Otherwise, best o' luck.


Thanks for the offer but I'm not gonna part with them until I have some SSIII splitters. Watch this space (although there's no hurry).


I now have the SSIII splitters fitted, and have the Euro splitters lying wrapped up in a box waiting. I won't part with them until the SSIIIs pass the car test next year.

I finally got around to painting my console again. I put a thick coat of 2 component primer on and sanded it smooth, and then some silver paint. Well, its more of a grey silver as I didn't want anything too bright. I may put a 2 component clear varnish on top, but I'm not sure. It will make it more durable and shiny, but it might start to have fine cracks as the previous varnish had. I'm going to engrave the symbols on the airvents using the laser machine.

This week some goodies arrived. Got some leather For the handbrake and the central armrest. I got them on Ebay from Topgaiters, a UK base firm that does some nice stuff for 6gens. Theres no import charges to Spain and fast delivery so its great.





I decided to cover the original armrest with the new leather and keep the dark red one.



I got a Sony RM-X4S to hook up to my Android head unit too. I'll do that next week.


I prized off the 7gen airbag badge. It is very flimsy. Its just like a pin badge but without any rear support and so bends super easy. No prob as I'm making my own badge shortly. It's 40mm in diameter.

I finally engraved my console icons with the laser. I think it looks good but the central console has one of the icons slightly off center. I guess I must have drawn it that way. I didn't have time to change it. A shame really.

Thanks for the comments guys!

Some more goodies arrived this week. 2 LED boards for the dome light, and a USB and audio input for the cigarette lighter.

I won't start smoking and my head unit has a GPS built in, so no need for that lighter socket. USB much more useful.

Today I put my console back together. I also wired up my Sony RMx4s and was disappointed as it wouldn't control the head unit properly. Only the seek up and down switches worked. I programed them as volume up and down, but it was disappointing that no other button would work with the Android head unit. I looked around online and it may need an extra resistor.
I also plugged in the USB in the cigarette lighter socket place, and was disappointed when the USB thumb drive I was using had a bad connection and the music would skip or the drive would disconnect completely. Just not my day.

Well good news, after 8 months off the road I finally sent her for the Spanish ITV (national car test). She failed of course, emisions and whatnot, blah blah, but I hadn't driven her for 8 months, so the battery died a death and was not recoverable despite being new 2 years ago. Well, the good news is that my TRD splitters passed the test no problem, despite the fact that the rears weren't really glued on well. So my 2 original EURO GT splitters are sitting in a box in the spare room doing nothing. Gathering dust I suppose. If anyone wants them, I'll find out how much postage cost to werever you are is and post them to you. I don't want profit. I love these vehicles. First come first serve....

I've found that sending them to the US is horrifically expensive - about 120euros. Kinda ridiculous really. I'd reccomend Europe only.
