Fitted some 8000k HID’s to replace the halogen high beam bulbs so all the headlights are HID now.
Also installed some carbon fibre eyelids to match the grille.
After the front bumper was hit twice in the space of a fortnight (while parked), I finally got around to getting the car to Roy at YPM Panel & Paint for repair.
The lip was also repaired and painted while the bumper was off as it had some cracks from the previous owner in Japan.
Say hello to the new daily driver:
It’s a 2008 Toyota Crown Athlete (GRS204).
The only one in NZ that I know of as it’s the newer shape, has full factory aero and the 232kw 2GR-FSE.
After purchasing a Hardrace Gearbox Mount for the Chaser and finding it didn’t fit, I resorted back to a traditional method of mount reinforcement. Sikaflex 291!
I’ve done this in the past with the Diff and Engine Mounts on the DC2 and had much success providing a firmer and a more robust feel.
The best $12.00 you can spend!
