The rolls sound nice but I would have the butter not the mayo or the wedges and how else would he reach the bedroom windows to wash them without a ladder  ;)  :blink:

So is the young one that makes the rolls;) boom chica wa wa :P
Spicy chicken roll and 4 pack of monster the fuel of champions ;)

I went up to bed last friday week and she had the ladder erected next to the bed...
I thought :o eff dis im sleepin in the box room :lol:
Then i remembered the windscreen wasnt under the bed anymore :huh: so its only my back at risk,
But was all speculation in my mind in the end :rolleyes:

The ladder is one of those 3 way multi position ones that can be used as scaffolding etc.
Got the idea id put it in scaffold mode get her up on the second step me being 6ft 2 and all,
Bend er over the ladder, she can hold on to the horizontal 8th Step and ill shush her up in to the attic :blink:
After i have me chicken roll and can of monster of course :P :lol:
But hasn't happend yet :mellow:

Update:
Done a bit of searching on Ireland's free adds websites, found one called Adverts.ie also available as an App on Android,

Long story short
I'm off on an 8 hour road trip in two weeks time,
Collecting a replacement rear bumper as the fixings are broken on the drivers side brackets, been like that since purchase, maybe an easy fix but picked up a replacement for 40 euro, a better option for fitting the custom rear lip from Russia as the replacement bumper will be a smooth fit.

Also on the road trip ill be collecting a set of Trueno headlights with indicator units, these will look much better on the black body instead of the existing chrome units

Toyota_Corolla_AE111_9_zpsbon3ohzq.jpg

And finally the last part of the trip involves collecting a replacement interior glove box compartment which hasn't sustained any scratch damage unlike the one currently fitted to the Levin.

The list of parts to purchase for the exterior is almost complete now,
Just to purchase the rear lip,
And keep an eye out for a carbon fibre bonnet, blend in nice and subtle on the black car, aswell as shaving 15kg off the front end.

Never expected to get this far in to the project without having to purchase a single item from Japan its mad,

thats only 3.27 minutes long not an hour mate :blink:

Very sorry mate,
Please see the link above to the video "KEi to the city"

Update:
Ive phoned the guys whom fitted the duplex exhaust on the focus and remapped it, got in touch with them today and made an appointment for next week to have the replacement Cat fitted to the Levin and get the exhaust leak sorted,
Perhaps straighten the back box too, depending on price I'm at for the essential repairs first.

The guys are masters at creating exhaust systems and well i should have gone there in the first place but i thought the local mechanic would have fixed all the leaks but unfortunately not...
Seems the flange joining the cat on both ends has decayed and is "firp fap fap" when laying off the throttles,
So to get the job done right first time, ive made an apointment to see the professionals and have it sorted for the MOT
They are 127km drive away from me but well worth the journey,
They said on the phone they dont really like fitting second hand parts as they generally break in a few months, but in this case a few months time is all i need to borrow,
Once ive gotten the MOT done, i can send a copy of the cert to the insurance company whom will then give me the insurance cert for the windscreen,
I can then work on sorting timing belt etc.

If this fix on the exhaust can last me until the end of April/ start of may,
i should then have pieced together a 2.5" 200 cell cat and the Varex remote 2.5"-4"exit remote muffler,
ill go back to the exhaust specialist to have the two parts fitted aswell as custom bending the pipes to fill in the gaps between cat and varex to make it all sing,
The manifold should stay good for me hopefully until Christmas ill then look in to purchasing the legendary fujisubo 4-2-1 extractor manifold from Japan for the ultimate Church Organ style experience really let that twin cam bwaaa! Like it should :D

Hopfully next weeks visit doesnt cost me much, hopefully get the two tyres aswell but we will see,
Will be a reliefe to have the exaust sorted

Sweet,
Missing the WRC logo and a random dude in sponsorship overalls and mirror tinted glasses sipping on a bottle of Monster.
Seriously though
Top respect, I'm in the same situation for the past six years, working on the cars in all weather,
Music in headphones are great for helping to get along with it,
Ow and an old child's cot mattress saves lying on the stony gravel or cold concrete driveway

I couldn't agree with you more.

I've had a look at a few of your threads and they are very interesting and very well put together.

I shall be nicking some of your ideas ;) lol.

Just to check are the zetec so bumpers the same as st bumpers?

Sent from my C5303 using Ford OC mobile app

Thanks,
ZetecS bumpers are standard bumpers with the zetecS bit stuck on them,
ST bumpers are full bumpers but fit the standard body.

ST and zetecS share the same rear spoiler and side skirts,
There are however different side skirts for 3 & 5 door models

hahahahahaha excellent.
 
Those lights look much better, the lines across the originals looked terrible!  How can that spider be so inconsiderate as to crawl into full view then die there making it impossible to get out?  The lack of consideration given really is appalling.  I had a daddy long legs in the centre brake light on my first car and then not too long ago a fly in the offside brake light of my last car.  Out of all the places they could go, why does it have to be somewhere with a clear cover?  It's almost like they're attracted to the light or something :lol:.  Either take it out through the bulb hole or drive round some corners quick enough to shift it to the edge out of sight.  I know which I'd try first...

Thanks Martin :lol:
The lights with the lines are premium spec in the AE101 and AE111 world but i favour personal taste over bhp status.
I've advertised the old units aswell as all spare parts on local online selling sites, some parts are gathering interest so hopefully earnings will be soon reinvested back in to the build aswell as clearing some attic space,

The spider is really bugging me :lol: get it....:mellow:.
Perhaps just like me: he found the tail light units on....The Web:mellow:
Thought he'd get in there for a buzz :lol:
Ok Ok ill stop ^_^

The lens that it is inside is like a double glazed window, the bulb openings done lead in to that area,
It seems sealed like a cavity,

Would be a good excuse if stopped for slipping the rear out lol was trying to shift the dead spider from the corner of my tail light officer,
Big enough spider too, i don't like em much :unsure:
