I dont know about Matte Blacking it but I might have a go at vinyling a couple of panels.

Its Sunday, its raining, I have a hammer, sandpaper, and some primer.

Lets do some engineering!!!!

Take one Yaris bonnet. Preferably one that has dropped on a rear corner.

Image

Add sandpaper, lubricate with elbow grease.

Image

Keep going till you get bored.

Image

Get the roller out. Slap it on.

Image

Add cool grille that is made from lies.

Image

Didnt really fit, so hit it with a hammer. Then loosened the hinges a bit. Then removed the bumpstops. Then kicked it.

Then it fitted.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

As I was in an "engineering" mood, I decided to professionally debadge and dewiper the rear end too.

Image

Pending the purchase of a bung (which will be daubed in red ox) I have uttilised engineer grade Duct Tape to keep out rainwater and snakes.

Image

Cheers to Liam for invaluable help.

Conservitavely, I recon I must have added about 15hp today.

Surely the fastest non turboed 1.0 on the streets now?

Got to be up there.

I would've settled for adding 13.2 bhp by staying in bed. It's Sunday. It's a day of rest. :mrgreen:

It is clearly improving! I like your use of engineering tape, that is real use it was invented to, but they keep it as a secret, I have many locations in my vehicle that have got some engineering tape care to them :lol:

Rear wing angle looks good in photos where you have boot lid tad open :mrgreen:

Have you got plans for rear bumper?

Where is all the snow? We still have too much of it...

No snow here dude, the jet stream has been so low that its blown all the clouds away I think.

Yes,the boot is open a bit in nearly all the pics, the spoiler does look better at that angle. :lol:

That was the very last of the NASA tape. Must invest in more. It fixes almost everything.

Speed,not dislike a kerb crawlers average around Boro.

Stony silence from occupants and a gay sex line phone number displayed on back panel.

Quite bizarre really :lol:

1) Speed Kills.

2) Was listening to The Stranglers.

3) I'll think you'll find its a magnetic Taxi Firm telephone number that was found on the ground at a jet wash. Offer enough money and they might do you gay sex anyway mind. You can only ask.

More bolt on shenanigans.


Annoy your neighbours and make people say Barry and Boys in the same sentence with a 4inch fart can.

Clicky vid^

Now I just need a bigger manifold. Or one with less holes in. And a larger middle section.

I wonder if with custom exhaust fart can would fit into middle? That would be quite racer style :lol:

That fart can must add another +40hp :mrgreen:
