Whats up fellow Bodgetarians, may your BBQ'ed burgers be meaty and your beers be real and British.
A couple of you may have met me over the years and know me as Gareth, Gaz, Gazza, Gazza_DJ, sonicshadow, SonicSW20, Oi, Mate, and on a particularly good day Wanker.
I'm the proud owner of T189PND, a 1999 UK market Sonic Shadow GT T-Bar. Owned for ~4 years, and covered ~80-85k miles in that time or something like that. After a few years of nearly fault free daily driving in 3SGE NA spec and a move closer to work on the horizon so I would not need to drive every day, I decided it would be a great time to expose myself to a whole world of problems with a DIY Gen3 3SGTE conversion! As it goes the problems weren't too bad, and the car was only off the road for a few weeks while working on it on weekends.
At some point I'll copy the "build" thread / waffle from other corners of the internet to here, but for now here's a few photos. Of the car, not me. No one wants that!

A few as it is now:
Choice of 16 or 17inch Advans. IMO any more than 3 spokes is excessive
