A thread where you can tell us/show us all what you have done to your 86 or BRZ.

Can be anything from an engine pull to simply cleaning it/ driving it. Whatever it is show us!

Hopefully this will get us more actively involved in what we are all doing and sharing the little tips and tricks we have discovered while playing with this wonderful machine..

Ill get the ball rolling with what i did today....

Installed a set of BC Coilovers and some 18x9.5's..

Slammed the front. back still needs to come down a fraction which ill do tomorrow. Surprisingly its still 120mm clearance from the ground which leaves 20mm to play with although i dont think ill go that low.

DENNIS - as i am interested to do the same would you mind expanding on this - like model, price, who did it etc.
i am starting from scratch and am ignorant in this area so any thing you can share would be much appreciated.

Done by Autobarn Logan City. Cost was $560 supply and fit with cheapy Chinese cameras. I couldn't be bothered, but you could probably buy your own cameras from eBay (anything with RCA connectors) for around $30ea and get the Toyota harness ($80 from Autobarn). Labour was $280.

So:

2x $100 Chinese VGA cameras
1x Toyota Harness $80
Labour $280
(then they tried to charge us for 2 switches at $9ea, but we didn't pay it as they didn't put it into the quote when we put the deposit down)

As far as I know, the installation is done by another company located at the Autobarn carpark, so you'd be able to take your own cameras in and only pay for labour, the switch and the Toyota harness.
