So hardtop rescued from Spider alley.. and duly fitted.. but with mot on 16th Nov and poss a fail...thinking of selling hardtop as will be sorned with a custom cover on.
So asking price. its a rare mint 10ae hardtop in innocent blue mica with cover and wall hanging brackets....gotta be £750 surely or am i just being greedy...quite tempted to list on all the FB groups as will price create a quite a stir ?? Anyless i may as well keep. Ill re invest money in m2 camber arms and polybushing .
Whatya reckon..off my rocker? Dont hold back guys..lol

No idea on price tbh, they are insane on FB all driven up by one particular vendor, the same one who thinks a 6 speed is worth £750 excluding shipping, and yet always seems to struggle to get rid of any stock :unsure: No harm in putting it up and seeing what you get offered.

Why do you want the camber arms?

That's quite a lot, what makes you think you need so much? I run -1.8 and tyre wear seems pretty even on AR1s.

Outer shoulder wear on the a052s the bumpf from yokohama states a min of -3.5. I just wanna go faster too so pushing the envelope some nice shiny arms is also less bushes to get out and in.. although im not really a fan of polybushing...over a new set of metalastic rubber 1s so may get new oem bottom arms. Renew all bolts etc.
My arms look original although no play. New is not gonna hurt.

Interesting. Let me know how you get on, I'm considering a set of fronts to add more camber, I don't need it atm but likely will next season. I had a friend have some pretty bad experience with the gravity rears, will be interested to see how the M2 fronts are.

Lol. I can't find the time to do either. The mk2 is still in bits, I really need to put it back together, just one of those things as while I have everything off there are a number of things I might as well do (such as engine mounts). I can't buy anything turbo related for the track car until black Friday, I have no motivation to do the sills on it either atm as the weather is too poor to paint, and I've had to SORN the celica until December so I don't have anything large enough to get materials for the larger enclosure I've been meaning to build the rabbit for the last 6 months 😆 My garage lighting is shit and it's dark so early now I can't do anything on weekdays anyway.

Lol. Everything i touch Diy ends in me swearing. New bathroom taps. Sweet. Get up in night for a pee and wet feet. Taps fine but whilst led on floor between bowl n basin i must have disturbed the toilet sanitary seal... New smoke alarms no good had to send em back... gloss paint is shite not like it used tobe.. 3 coats on doors.. had enough time to scamper back into garage and done things with nuts n bolts..
1 thing that did go well put up a blink 4 camera system round house. really impressed super easy...already caught trick or treaters tramping over lawn and kids ball bouncing of my rx7

Nice. We were going to get a similar system but our neighbours have installed one now and it covers both drives so no need. Lol.

I know what you mean about the paint, when we redecorated here the previously dark blue walls took 6/7 coats to fully cover, I couldnt believe it.

Yeh I don't blame you. The guy I used to collect the NB had had someone cut his axles off to try and seal his, which obviously wasn't a particularly well thought through plan...
