    Look into CarPro Dlux for black trim, I've got it for my Clio and it's brilliant.

    Fitted the rad fans to the new radiator, fitted the radiator assembly to the car. fitted the condenser, re-fitted the top cross-member, adjusted the bonnet catch which reduced the gap and stopped the bonnet from rattling... :)

    Getting there slowly!

    Connected my main rad hoses and clamped them up, went and collected some coolant from Toyota, made a cup of tea... :)

    (Tea was not made using coolant)

    A quick oil and filter change ended up with breaking out the 3" hole saw and getting creative to fit some intercooler pipework on the hot side. Cold side was a shed load easier

    Nothing exciting, just oil, filters and plugs. Air filter was the most awkward and the only part that drew blood.

    It is a Toyota MR2 roadster in metallic orange. You need pixie hands in that engine bay...

    Nice. Which MR2? :)

    Toyota engine bays seem pretty jam packed even when they are a bit larger.

    This one. Probably going 2zz at some point as it could do with a bit more power.

    Stock 1ZZ in there? :)

    Is that a custom re-spray also? I don't recognise the colour.

    Looks great.

    It looks shabbier in the flesh lol. Standard 1zz atm. It is a custom spray iirc Toyota 4R7 orange mica, can't see from that angle but calipers are finished in gold.

    Managed to clean the scuttle panel drain holes that, when clogged, result in water collecting below the window wipers. Too hot to wash it, so might do that at about 8ish.
