    Complete, though a few small items are tweaked.

    Looks good.:tu:
    I like the hubcaps/wheel covers in the second photo better then the first.

    Curious, does your car have seat belts? I can't see any.

    I also find it interesting that your rear lenses are a different colour to mine



    Here's something else for you, have you noticed that the only external body colour you see on the interior when all the doors/tailgate are shut is the inside on the tailgate and below the rear side windows? Why not paint them the interior colour (in your case black)? Mine is a GL in Australia, so the part below the rear side windows came painted in the trim colour, but I never liked that the tailgate was different, so I painted it the same as the trim colour. It looks factory and really tidies it up.

    Thanks for the nod :tu:, 75wagon. Two different style hubcaps: the pair in the second shot are "factory" cap - don't know about the others, and I agree, they do look better.

    I need to source some belts along with a few more items. It came with Toyotas up front and haven't had time to thoroughly check for the others, yet.

    From my experience with other badges, foreign models usually get the "cool" amber lenses - all RED is so stale!

    You have a nice looking ride. Looks mad clean in that shot. That's my goal!

    I'm looking for the broken rear right tail lens & left lens for the license plate housing. Got any leads? Let me know.

    Very cool! Looks like an excellent project, be sure to take some under-the-hood shots too when you get a chance!

    Thanks Arrow Joe,
    Here's one I have from the first "photo shoot" - all there! It's got some 'grunge' to it.
    I'll update as I get into the build.

    Looks like it needs some TLC in that bay.
