This is my baby ❤️

I had too much time in the lockdown (covid19) so I painted the brakes red. Like a teenager would... 😁

Planing on spending a lot of time and some money to make it look and drive even better. 

I never thought a Toyota estate would make my heart beat faster, but it does every time!

Best laid plans and all that.......

 

 

The other day while looking for something completely unrelated I found a tin of grey plastic primer and knew I had half a tin of Toyota metallic silver kicking around so figured I'd use it for an old trick that usually works well I've done many times in the past.

 

Painting the part between the clocks and the clear plastic panel body colour takes no time at all. Also it looks really good 9 times out of 10 for the amount of work involved.

 

So that was my plan butnin so many ways it just didn't seem to work this time.

 

Despite taking due care and preparation the finish between the fuel gauge and speedo looks like a regiment of spiders route marched all over the shop.

 

Also the overall texture just looks, well,quite frankly rough cheap as if the plastic is incredibly porous and soaked up half the paint.

 

I might try removing it and rubbing the whole thing down with wet n dry sandpaper until the surface is glass like smooth then going over the whole process again.

 

Overall, it looks good. With the silver panels around the central dash and the right hand air vent,mirror adjustment and headlight leveller the silver instrument panel adds to the effect.

 

The odd failure is good for the soul or so they so [emoji849][emoji849][emoji848]bc2e1d366c5ea2bee268d2dede8fb2ec.jpg0428e910d4e98fecb8257915fb56b38a.jpg91ffdd98487b8cc6bca87c173866db6b.jpg

Very nice. Suddenly I feel a touch embarrassed for painting my brakes yellow considering my teenage years are a distant memory lol.

Really nice, great to see more T22s still on the go.... I do sometimes wonder if they were ever any other colour.

You can have any colour as long as it's silver [emoji4][emoji4]

5am this morning, heading to work at a steady 65+ mph and I came round the corner as the poor thing decided to jump into the road. Never even got the chance to brake.

It must have been a really young deer as I imagine a bit more mature and experienced animal wouldn't have hopped so unfearfully into the path of speeding car.

Besides it went under rather than to the side or over the bonnet and roof which a larger animal would.

Poor !Removed! thing, at least it would have been quick.

No structural damage but that bumper needs fixing asap [emoji17][emoji17][emoji17]8a02f224d2eaf4ac6b1a216b6df95cf9.jpg6e4a8f065b8d374bdf33e31934865b46.jpg65bb06ca5738227e9abe192223b5dbcb.jpg

It's crude but surprisingly strong and doesn't look immediately like a bodged repair,well aslong as no one takes a 2nd look at least [emoji2960][emoji2960]97c49a83dbd824caa8be6fc1a249c075.jpgb1b29802123b50b600b7b831a1105cd2.jpgd5c577a9af040f093f4eaa0d6bb41998.jpg91aac87551f78904a57ec1b6a270a8b1.jpg

Nice shine there, well done.

Has anyone else noticed this or is it just me, on every single T27 model the rear bumper simply doesn’t match regardless of colour, they always look as if they’ve been re-sprayed, I find it annoying, and I’ve always wanted to know why! Our silver t27 is the same, the front bumpers however are a closer match!!! I know the bumpers are plastic hence they show off the paint colour Slightly different to the metal body, but surely there is a limit! Excuse my moans guys

It's more of a simply more wear and tear the back takes. It's the same with VW products I have had for a work car(Skoda and Seat). When new you wont see the difference in Toyotas.
