    Had this thing for 3 years now and finally had the kick in the are I needed to make it cool

    Pics from when I bought it

    Factory fresh
    N/a
    Manual
    Lsd

    Not a bad little find
    Genine mileage with the service stamps and mot's to back it up

    Had been sat for a little while and needed a few bits to be right

    First on the list was the broken exhaust

    D4C57D37-8A92-44F9-8DF5-147D907C6FAC_zpsyie6mmty.

    Stock fitment shotgun made up for the rear half of the car
    And off for an MOT it went

    That was pretty much all I did to it till recently
    I did upset the purists at one point as my is200 broke the day before a dwyb at pod so I took the supra

    FB_IMG_1439499358418_zpsfgmowiuq.

    And again I did very little with it after as it developed an issue with the crank pulley
    I did a few attempts at repairs over the years but it never really fixed it and I was always worried it would damage the crank so I ended up buying a japspeed pulley and have sinced fucked this off as it was crap.
    Then I punted my r33 the other week and had no rad car to cruise around in and my brain went on a little bit of a mad moment

    20161024_125824_zpsfp1aeub4.

    But they didn't go low enough for my tastes

    20161026_133513_zpsdbl3i9nx.

    20161026_152703_zpsgnqwvsqz.

    And then it needed cool shoes

    20161028_133326_zpsib2x02hw.

    I'll be ordering new lips for them this week hopefully to rebuild them to 18x10 and 18x11 in low et (10s around et3 11s around et12)

    It's still not exactly high mileage either :D

    20161014_192314_zpsokylkd8w.

    Still have all of the OE parts
    And everything is a bolt on mod
    So if I decide it needs to go back to factory it can quite happily apart from I'll have rolled the lips on the arches

    I shouldn't need to flare or anything though

    buy a toyota or aftermarket harmonic pulley that ally one will fuck your engine with it not being harmonically ballanced!

    Firstly
    Apologies for the quality of these pictures I've damaged the camera on my phone

    But I said above I was going to order new lips for my vskf so I thought I'd update as I've been working on the wheels

    Firstly the old set were welded between the lip and barrel but that's not an issue if you have a lathe

    20170318_101948_zps8duqkolg.

    20170318_120727_zpsljggjeor.

    So with that done I could look at how wide they'll now end up being with 5" lips on

    20170318_105715_zpsqska0aub.

    Fronts are now 18x10 et6
    Rears are 18x11 et18 I think

    Will confirm when theyre properly bolted up

    To give an idea here's a pic with the lips bolted to the centres and test fitted to the car

    20170310_152446_zps1sws9vcw.

    Should work out quite well

    Hi have slacked majorly in updating this.
    This car has had the VSKF on for ages now and as well as that has had a new front end with a mix of early and late parts allowing me to run USDM full amber late spec front lights which are smaller and a paint job on the front end and smaller plate recess.

    Pics are always a good thing
