Its worth taping or heat shrinking the phono connector just incase it comes apart when you put it all back together. Saves the ball ache of taking the stereo back out.


Interesting approach to the sound deadening. The boot seems like a waste of time to me, the rear seats do a great job of stopping the noise coming through, its the rear quarters where all the noise comes from/ travels through. I did the rear quarters and isolated them from the boot and the difference was huge. 



I managed to figure it out. The hole for the camera is too small though so I need to sort that. Thanks for your help though. I found the back made a lot of difference and made the exhaust quieter. Although I haven't isolated the rear quarters but I might do it.

I'm not really happy with the reverse camera. The angle is rubbish and there is no way to make it any better. You cannot get enough angle on it so you can see half the car in the camera and only a small amount of road. It is enough so I won't reverse into anything. But only when it's a foot or two away

Reverse up to a garage/wall have a look at your screen , get out of the car and go and have a look if any bit's aren't on the screen . Keep doing this until you know your angles.

I know my angles and it is manageable, however the camera angle itself is not very good. The lines on the camera are mostly showing on the number plate and there's no way to make the camera face backwards anymore. I'll get some pictures later

This is a bit of a stretch but is anyone available this weekend to help me fit my rear TRD bumper? You will need the tools to be able to cut the bumper (I dont have this).

Installed my TRD kit from Japan. I was most scared about cutting my bumper.






And now the finished result!










I'm going to get some quad tips attached to my exhaust next. 

Then i need to get some wheels to complete the look!

On Saturday morning i took a trip to Fastline Styling in Romford to get dual tips put on my Miltek exhaust to match the TRD bumper. I could not be happier it looks amazing!

Went for a drive today with a good friend. His car is completely stock Aero. We found a private and closed road to do a few pulls on to compare the difference a header/exhaust and a tune makes. We even swapped cars and same results. Watch the video i uploaded



Also some pictures from the day

The cars look good parked together! Good job with the bumper and exhaust!
