Took the Weds off for refinishing and put Auto Couture set back on as well as lowered another 10mm or so. Now I'm getting the bumping of the upper arm every now and then, doh.

Anyway, I've entered the car into a local show coming up early April so this is basically how it will be for that show aside from hoping to have the bonnet (hood) and boot (trunk) painted for the show as they're chipped up and a bit busted up paint wise.

So it's looking like probably can't get the car to paint in time for Automania, oh well.. not like the Auto Couture wheels will be in good condition anyway ha! But good news..

I've been looking for a front bumper for ages and after getting that front cut part only and being disappointed I have been on the hunt. Managed to score this..

Now from what I can tell I don't think it's a genuine piece but can't be sure. The seller was not sure on the manufacturer so I suspect there are no badgers or markings. It could be.. Auto Couture though..

Impossible to tell though using a black car for modelling.

Anyone have any ideas? Anyway, a while away yet as they'll be in the next container.

Oh, another thing. I've done with the v1.0 of the MOONLIGHT dancing LED for JZS16x, check it out - https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v...type=2&theater

So seems like the bumper is a Version Select item - http://versionselect.com/shop/index....ersion-ii.html

Replica of Auto Couture. Just need to find out where to get the fogs from now or what will fit

I went to fit my exhaust today but seems like the OEM bolts are pretty rusted and seized up so going to check it with my friend who works in a shop next week.. but I did do some more small things for the upcoming show.

Basic tint sorted, just dark; no fancy colours or anything this time

FWIW I've found out the compatible fog lights are some farkin expensive Hella items as seen here -



Of course I'm not paying $1500USD for those so need to find something suitably sized for cheaper !

Same seller... so probably just a typo (on the one posted for $1490)

19x10 -1 Offset so I think they should fit really well on the back actually. May not need to buy new lips after all for the others.. we'll see.

Seems like the wheel photo has been taken off Yahoo as auction complete. Another pair of Bazrieas

Anyway here's a photo of the exhausts finished. It won't be long before the bottom of the tips is scraped through I'm sure haha..

Also of course the show was on during the weekend, we managed to get 4 cars together.. not bad for a last minute effort..
