hey peeps just thought id drop in and show my car... im using my mates account.. to post these up cause i cant seem to be able to get into my one for some time now :cry:

but anyways here it is...

my car is in the austrlian photo album in the toyota sera pics under homers sera.. lol it use to be red wine color now its a green.. just ahve to do a few more things though to finsh it off... such as tinting and ecu upgrade... but other then that.. its pretty much done.... at present only running at 7 psi giving some 180sx and skylines a shock at the lights.. but soon with an after market ecu will be hitting at 16 psi...

besides the full respray including engine bay and the addition of the x racing body kit with flares and celica gt4 bonnet scoop i have had a turbo upgrade.. using a tdo4L from a wrx with custom made manifold and 2.5 exhuast all with highflow cat all teh way through coming out of a cannon muffler.

i also have a FMIC and HKS SSQ bov ..... i have retrimed the interior of my car and is now a biege white color all inside... also dvd player and screen and custom pillar gauges showing boost and volt on the driver side... sard racing shift light and hks turbo timer... i have also a custom boot installation of FUSION system with 2 ampliers rear speakers, sub and custom fake floor box and splits at the front replacing the SSLS system originally coming with the sera... (ill try get some photos of it asap)

i have also replaced my wheels with a set of 18inch black face with silver lip sponsord by tyre power here in melbourne (sunshine) to give it a bit more attitude.. matching the resprayed black top finish.. with the soon to be limo black tint added... i also have cutom made sports supsension by tyre factory racing team... which is fully adjustable coil overs..

hope u guys like it.. last thing i want to maybe do is a strip on the side or the bottom of the car.. but still considering...

hope u guys like it and hope the pics work ahhahaha

but yeah thanks guys for your help along the way...

regards

homer :thumbsup: :D

Are those genuine Rays or Ravs?

I've not really been a fan of that front bar nor wheel arches, but do like the colour. how well will that re-painted interior hold up? Always been something I'd question in the long run. I'd probably like that front bar more if it didn't have the side triangles and used the stock indicators.

and if you need account assistance, PM one of the admins :thumbsup:

I'm interested in your suspension, how much does it cost and do you have pics for it? Alos, I'm interested in how you re-did your interior and the seats, what kind of material are they? and did you re-stuff them?

hey scuzzy...

umm honestly i think there just ravs but hey its free hahahah im not complaining ahhaha i dont think sponsoring me for orginal rays and leaving them 4g out of pocket is a good business move hehehe... but sitll greatful for the wheels...

in regards to the paint well i did the other interior myself which use to be yellow and black... which did well.. .this time i used a flexy color paint that is used on bumpers for cars so that it can flex and will not break... so the interior should be fine.. this the second time around doing it... as i sold my old one to a friend of mine.. the guy that owns this account ahhaa....

hey medtech...with the suspension umm i have had it for a while now.. i can try get some pics for u.. might be a bit hard with the wheel in the way and all. but i can try i payed just over 1 g for them made from scratch... but the place is closed down now as they moved interstae i tihnk not sure where... and in regards to the seats my uncle did them cause he does retrims for cars busses etc and he re stuffed them as well.. so yeah i also change the carpet in the sera as well to black... pretty much i did the interior my self besides the seats... close mates painted the car... and fitted/moulded the kit to the body... and my mechanic sponsored me for the manifold and exhaust and so forth... and i hooked the system up and made the custom fibreglass fake floor and amp racks in the boot.. but ill get all these pics for u guys.. and hopefully u like it....

thanks again guys...

regards

I like- i like a LOT. Wasnt too sure about getting the widebody sections with that kit but know im getting second thoughts.

Mines getting another $4-5000 worth soon. Im thinking a new engine, most likely a 4AGZE turboed - A Mate has a reconed one sitting at his house. Get the autobox strengthened. And the Microtec LT8S updated.
