That's because TTS are owned by Bridgestone....


Yep? I wasn't getting at that, I was more pointing out their insistence.

Well being owned by Bridgestone would make them more insistent you buy their tyres wouldn't it?

Replaced the rear shocks in the Terrano. Took only 10 mins to do both, didn't even have to jack it up :lol:

Replaced Corolla front speakers. When I got the car, a previous owner had decided it was a good idea to cut the speaker covers in the lower dash and install these Pioneer coaxials.

Thankfully the local Pick A Part gets a reasonable supply of unmolested EE80/AE82s so I picked up some tidy speaker covers for $10. Got some reasonably nice JBL GTO's which sound a ton better than the larger Pioneers.

Oh wow, such a subtle job, that almost looks factory :lol:

I chased a wiring fault down on the RAV4 which was giving me all sorts of grief via the trailer socket. Pulling the interior out revealed a bunch of those clip on wire joiners. Isolated the earth wire and replaced it with a new length of wire screwed into a sanded panel then painted over. Worked a charm.

Took it for my first track day! So much fun and all my suspension mods made the car very stable.
