What color orange is that? Nice and bright. Can you wheel it out into the sunlight for a pic?

Hey, you and I have the same car! Hope mine looks that good someday. :) Interesting that yours has chrome bumpers...were all Aussie RA45s like that?

Do you have wiring details for the beams? I have a corona I'm planning to swap next month, and would like to have it all finished up over the course of a weekend. Any info would surely help! Thanks.

Uh-oh. You took the rear glass out...

What/how are you going to install the rear glass? Are you going to re-use the original window seal?

OR...

do you have a new one and can you get any more??????

Nice work so far, BTW. Love that color...

Saw your post in the Toyota Swap Meet section. Just wanted to say thanks. 252 Aussie = $US ? A little pricy at the moment plus I am in the process of looking for a new house. Won't be able to purchase for a few months. But thanks for hunting this down!!
