Been looking for these for a while, and may have some applications outside of this thread, but today I scored 22, yes, twenty two, Toyota COPs suitable for 4AGE use :-D

She's back home! And was COVERED in mould spores where she was stored. Really weird/gross. Fortunately it just hosed off easily. Unfortunately there's a little bit (more conventional) inside, too. Damn.

Will have to:

  • Pull and clean seats
  • Pull and clean seatbelts
  • Wipe all surfaces with something to kill it

It's not bad on the seats, but the front seat belts are pretty nasty. Bugger.

Ha ha, yeah, too many projects means more awkward ones get to be on the back burner.

I have 3 blacktop 4ages and one in-use-for-a-few-years 7AFE and might do the engine as a stockish blacktop first and then upgrade to more power/torque later with a hybrid stroker build.

Panel and suspension and fuel system etc etc, first.

So tonight I bought a set of 4 15x6 ET30 JDM wheels for this thing. Exactly like the DC2 wheels I bought earlier fitment wise, except no spacers required. So I'll have to scrape up the money to get some appropriate tyres as per these old posts:

Offset/size measure up: viewtopic.php?p=41628#p41628
Tyre size thoughts: viewtopic.php?p=41743#p41743

195/50R15 is what I think I decided on. But...

I have a set of worn out 205/50R15 R888s on a shelf in my storage that I could throw straight on for shits/giggles, though.

WOFs on the 13s, driving on near-bald R888s in summer, perfect? :-D

Picked them up today and:

  • 127 from face to inner lip
  • 50 from face to outer lip
  • total lip to lip 177
  • half that is 88.5
  • 88.5 - 50 = 38.5 ET

Seller said ET30 so depending on my math and measurements compared to the car's reality, may need 8mm spacers, or so.

May therefore also need longer studs, not sure about that, though, have not checked.

Nice quality wheels, though. Old chrome is peeling on sides of spokes and all but gone on the backs of the spokes, and could do with a general clean, however two piece, and nicely made.
