Our Sera passed through the UK, where a previous owner had a shop perform a nasty F&F job on it. The flames, rear spoiler, pink racing seats, mesh "grill", massive four-tip exhaust, nitrous system, alarm system, extra gauges, etc., have all been removed. The wrong wheels, aftermarket lighted shift knob, LED fender turn signals, and holes in the front and rear bumpers remain. Missing are the sun-visors, seats belts, and assorted interior trim pieces. A plastic fake hood scoop covers the hole in the hood where the previous butcher had the air filter sticking out until we can make a proper repair.

On my last trip to Japan, I bought a new set of door struts from a dealership. I would rather not discuss the exorbitant price I paid for them. ops: And they only work a little better than the ones I replaced. The interior bits are proving the hardest parts to come by. Good bumpers and original wheels are available, although shipping costs from the UK, Australia, and Japan are delaying the purchase.
The car drives very well, and I drive it home every couple of months. The only bad part about driving it is that the interior smells like an old Toyota. And I don't think the A/C works. The car isn't on the director's hot list, so I just try to find parts when I have the spare time.
Never seem to run out of other projects here.
