I think the clears with projectors then the frosted with standard frosted headlights like you said, I guess it'd depend on which headlights he decides to end up with.

No major updates. Ordered my new wheels yesterday, having them built to my specs so it will take a couple weeks before I get them. Also ordered the new tires Toyo Proxes P1sport's so hopefully they are as nice as everyone claims they are! Once the wheels and tires are installed I'll be bringing it up to the shop to finally put it on bags. Hoping everything looks good together. I have never really seen the style of wheel I got on a 6g (I'm sure they are out there just not that common) I'm confident that I will be the only one with these particular wheels seeing they are being custom made. Also got a nice 2.25" tanabe resinator, and Tanabe oval Hyper medallion muffler. I will be Fabing up a 2.25" downpipe back exhaust. It might free up a little bit of power and pick up a mpg or 2, but most of all it should look nice and remain nice a quite. Paint work will then get done for the rear lip/bumper, and license plate surround, she should then be ready in time for the Autorama show at the end of Feb! A lot to do in not a lot of time!

Have to wait and see!

Well it has been a crazy last few days. I saw there was a local 2016 Toyota 4 Runner TRD PRO for sale... and god do I love them. Went out and test drove it and immediately fell in love. So many cool features, very comfortable, practical, and very expensive laugh.gif . My girlfriend and I have been looking to get something for the dunes for some time now and this would work great smile.gif . Well after test driving it I told my friend how badly I wanted it. He then convinced me (with a huge amount of cash) to sell him the Evo... This I have been contemplating for the past 6 months or so, just to try something different. So I did it. The car I thought I would have for the rest of my life, now gone. Excited and sad all at the same time. I will be keeping the Celica of course. The 4 Runner will be my daily/off road/ dune toy. The one I test drove was black, and I will never own a black vehicle, especially something I plan on taking off road. I found it to be more logical to just buy and build one brand new at the local Toyota dealership. So that is what I will be doing, unless I come across a very good deal on a very low millage used one. Torn between the White, Concrete, and Graphite. If you guys haven't had the chance to drive one of these and your looking for a nice SUV/ Off road toy I'd strongly suggest it! They are so bad ass!

The TRD Pros are awesome. We are planning on picking one up when we get our '06 Limited a little closer to paid off. I would take a Trail Premium just as soon as a TRD Pro but the wife really wants a Quicksand or orange Pro. The 1GR is underpowered but just as reliable as you'd expect a Toyota to be.

Hell Yea! The quick sand color is defiantly cool as well! I actually felt like it moved along quite nicely. Didn't seem too under powered for what it is!

Nice! When the new 4runner first came out I thought the front was hideous. But it quickly grew on me and now I like it, a lot. My coworker has the Orange TRD Pro. Orange looks really sweet. So jealous. I hear what you mean, I would like to now get a ride that can just go anywhere, literally. Look forward to see which one you get.

I don't see the point in buying a new car off the lot unless for some reason it's exactly what you're wanting or you get a stupid good deal and it's a compromise you're ok with, ordering is the way to go.

MORE PARTS!!
Broke down and purchased a set of "Mint" condition Confetti Recaro front seats! The seller was nice enough to take many pictures, and complete videos of each seat! They truly are flawless. They got shipped out last night, via ship. They will take up to 7 weeks to get to me. Hopefully that gives me enough time to fine the proper confetti rear seats. I imagine they are hard to come by, and the price tag will reflect that I'm sure rolleyes.gif .

The actual seats I bought:



I'm now pondering the idea of doing the brakes. I'm not really sure which route I am gonna go just yet. Seems like there is a ton of write ups on the GT4 front and rear brake swap, then again I can't find one that tells me what exactly works..
From my understanding I need the following
-St205 front/rear calipers
-BRZ/FRS front brake rotors
-St205 rear brake rotors
-St205 pads
-Custom lines
Then of course the mounting location on the front calipers need to be shaved down, and the mounting holes in the hub need to be taped... Then again you read a different write up and get different information lol. Kinda aggravating, Think I'm just gonna wing it. I don't have a doubt I could find a way to make it work.

The rears are are the easy part.

Supra TT pads are the same as ST205 pads fyi, just to save you from ordering brake pads from the UK lol

The fronts are another thing, but still not too complicated.
Shave the caliper tabs.
Drill and tap the hub hole.
Drill the caliper holes to accommodate the new, larger dia, caliper bolts (that is IF you drill out the hub holes. you CAN just tap the existing holes, but specs for that are not listed in the DIY thread because I havent gotten any from others who did it that way)
aaaand finished (this is the abridged version of course haha)

Much better, so the rears essentially swap over? And is Using BRZ rotors in the front correct?
Thanks!

Personally, I would prefer to have this Wilwood kit in the front than the GT4 brakes for a couple of different reasons. That's just my own preference though.

Basically yes. I covered it as best I could in the guide. The "hardest" part is trimming the dust shield a bit. The BRZ rotors in the front yes. They arent the ideal spec but its all we really have at the moment. Someone used Cadillac Caterra rotors but those are 5x110, I never really got full details on that

Comparably the 205 front swap would be cheaper but the caliper build would be a bit better on Wilwoods side. Bigger discs also by about 30mm. Less fuss to install the Wilwoods too

Oh my.... I am defiantly going this route! I had no idea they made this! Then just upgrade to GT4 rear brakes!

The cost of the Wilwood kit is the major downfall compared to GT4 calipers, but the ease of install can't be beat. Keep in mind that they are MASSIVE. After seeing them in person, myself ands few others can confirm that you'll need a very low offset wheel to clear them, but I'm guessing that your new setup should work. But that's my long term plan, Wilwood calipers in the front and ST205 rear calipers.

Tao is the guy to talk to about the Wilwood kit. He's the one that introduced me to them and he's been running this kit for a couple of years now.

yes, i can definitely vouch for the wilwood as I saw Tao use them in action.
He chased me down RT71 at the midwest meet and forced me to overwork my tiny St brakes.
mine got so heated than my brakes faded and i missed the turn to go into the rest shetler where as he was inches from my bumper but literally tapped his brakes with easy and made the turn as if he was making a regular turn. totally worth it.

Nice score on the seats. Also it's nice to go but it's even better to stop. Big brake kit and some Castrol RBF and it'll be a totally different car.

Wow, that does look great! I'm gonna weigh my options. If I find some gt4 calipers for a fair price I'll go that route. If not I'll do the willwoods!
