    When I was scrolling down looking at the photos I was thinking, "what a lovely restoration".
    That's when I got to the last two - I peed my pants.

    1974 Toyota Corona MarkII

    Thanks guys, as you can see lots of work still needs to be done, I am going to try and keep it close to original as possible.
    I have some SSRIII's for this it but I am thinking they'll be too small.
    I am told that 17's would look good but I am not a fan of big wheels. I tried buying watts for it but got ripped off by the seller on club4ag and never got the rims.

    I need help in deciding a few things and would appreciate any help I can get.

    Bumpers are off of a 4dr MarkII and they have been made to fit this car therefore have to be painted. I don't want to paint them the same color as body.

    1, Should I paint the bumpers glossy black or matt black?

    2, Interior as you can see is brown but I am thinking about going part black and part black/brown or off-white/brown?

    3, I really want to hide the intercooler but I am still not sure how and if.

    4, I am thinking about using airbags for both rare and front and not sure where to start and look.

    My suggestions:

    Bumpers - Instead of black, how about silver? Not chrome, but a nice metallic silver would look nice. It would look like one of the pictures you posted with bumper/intercooler except that the bumper would look shinier after paint.

    Intercooler - Paint it matte black. That way, it'll look a bit more discreet and subtle. It won't hide your intercooler, but at least it'll look like an oil cooler or just an opening.

    Interior - All black.

    Wheels - I'm not a fan of large wheels either. Sorry to hear about the club4AG guy - did you get your money back? I hope you reported it. If you can find old rims made in the 80's or early 90's that would be perfect! The modern designs now don't match your car. Classic SSR Formula Mesh looks good on any car. 15 inch diameter MAX - no larger.

    Suspension - Sorry, don't know much about them, but if you do go air bags, I'm sure there are many lowrider/VIP specialists that can make one
    for your car.

    Can't wait to see the finished product!
