^ that's the type I was looking at.
And still, mods or not, photos would be sweet!
Keep us posted about that cruise/I might join that forum.

And yep, I hate 4wd and busses. Busses just merge out when they want and you have to go around.
But I have the type of smart-arse attitude where I give them a chance to get over, if they miss that window I tail the person in front so they can't get in. Having a somewhat loud exhaust and manual is good to rev it past them tongue.gif

Drive north, get Joshua to drive south. Meet me in the middle for an awesome photo shoot.
But seriously. Haha

I've considered getting a dash can too. To record these idiot drivers. But pretty much any accident involving a rear end, the driver that hits the back of the other will 99% be at fault regardless of brake lights etc kindasad.gif


Haha, you've had a head start with this modding thing... we need a bit of time to catch up first tongue.gif

And the Brisbane Celica Club is planning a 2 day NSW cruise later this year.... tongue.gif

And I bought a dash cam recently too... I also have one that I am going to wire permanently to the battery and it has motion detection recording so it records anybody doing anything suspicious when your car is parked tongue.gif

Mine has that, I turned it off when it started recording all night because it wasted my battery....

Also once the motion detector comes on, it doesnt turn the cam off, so unless you come back to the car in the time it takes to fill the card it will just overwrite it again...

All of a sudden I'm somewhat more thankful for the United State's complete lack of public transit. tongue.gif

Yeah, I prefer the TRD over the SSIII for the rear for my setup, the TRD flow a lot better smile.gif

I am thinking SSIII for the front smile.gif

I am going to black it out pretty soon tongue.gif

When I can find a good quality surround that fits the Australian Number plates that I want, I will upgrade to them tongue.gif

Might contact toyota about it tongue.gif

So, The big update is finally here biggrin.gif
A few week ago I found a set of Projector Headlights on eBay and promptly purchased them. After a week, they were at my door... biggrin.gif
I opened the box, and as usual, one tab was broken and another was split kindasad.gif




So I got a bottle of Loctite 406 from my Girlfriends father and repaired those tabs. I also added a washer behind the completely cracked tab for extra strength =]



Now came the adapter problem... The stock wiring in the car doesn't fit the H1 socket on the projectors, and the ADM park lights don't fit in the accent lights either... So an adapter was needed to be made... I got onto eBay and found some extension cables for the stock ADM wiring, and luckily the eBayer gave me the H1 side and the Accent adapters, so all I needed was the Male side for the low beams biggrin.gif


And so, this morning I headed over to my Mates house where most of the Car work is done. Here is the 'Before' shot:


Following the 6GC bumper removal guide, hte bumper was off in less than 40mins biggrin.gif




After some further troubles of trying to get a 10mm spanner that would fit inbetween the bar and the light, we finally got the High Beams replaced. They are a direct replacement and so no wiring mod was required biggrin.gif


Once the low beams were out of the car, it was time for the wiring harness to be made. The eBay extension cable was cut, and the male half was soldered and headshrinked onto the H1 adapter. In 10mins, both sides were made and the adapters were installed and 10mins later, the Low beams were in place. The Accent lights were just soldered directly onto the ADM park light harness:




Testing followed:


After the test was successful, the car was rebuilt and photos were taken. These will be in a second post below smile.gif

The 'Blue' is actually white... The time of day changed that...
And ATM I am not sure, I can get the H1 'Xenon' White Lights for $15, but I don't know if I will...
It will look better I guess kindasad.gif
