Could you take a photo of the pieces with a ruler on the side? I'd like to trace them so I can have a replica made. The rubber floor mats that came with mine are falling to pieces and cracking, which is sad, they were special Corolla floormats with nice logos and design.
You can find them for sale on Yahoo Auctions every now and then:
https://auctions.yahoo.co.jp/search/sear...=0&fixed=0

There is a set of brand new new-old-stock Trueno mats for sale:
https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/d276968214
The seller asks about 200 euros for it. I always double the price in my head to account for handling and shipping, so expect to pay around 400 euros to get it to your doorstep.

At the same time there is a single used driverside mat for the Levin for sale for a "mere" 30 euros:

That's awesome! Now I've just got to wait for the one that miggz has to pop up, although the new-old-stock one you found is great.

Yes it can be ridiculously pricy, I just paid 50 euros in shipping a stack of 10 manga books that I bought for 100 yen each. Blush
I could also have shipped it via land/sea, but then it would have taken 3 months to arrive. And they're not joking with that estimation as I tested it once. Big Grin

Got bored today while waiting for resin to dry on some carbon parts. So got cracking on fitting the short hub, quick release and nrg steering lock

Took photos as I went along so it's in order with pictures of the part numbers

Used the steering from the Audi so you will see its green

Some progress on the Shinigami has been made.

Friday was the last time driving with the pos 1500 and auto box

Got to the workshop and quickly stripped the car took just shy of 2 hours

Saturday came with its issues.... Sigh

But did a test mock of the motor had to make a new plate for the box

Found that a manifold I got does not fit so that irritated me.

The water housing at the back also did not clear the firewall so got irritated and took a hammer to it. It fits now lol. Will neaten it up, spray and fit a heat shield wrapping

What gearbox was that you're using with the 20v?
I had a T50 on mine so all lined up lovely but now I've gone for the F20, I need to cut the tunnel on the opposite side to you.

It's a t50 split box, but all the auto models need the cutting

Sorry for the stupid question, what is a f20 box?

These t50 box's we can get here pretty much on every corner for cheap. This motor I'll use the t50 the other motor I'm Gona build I'll use the Lexus 6 speed box have 5 available to me but don't have the energy now to make it fit
