I'm from Belgium YakSr5, wouldn't be surprised if my 4WD Wagon is the last one on the roads in the entire country. No need for a pic I think, it sounds pretty straightforward. It's not a priority anyway, but a good reason to snap up a set of seats if and when I come across some in good condition, especially since it sounds like an easily reversible modification.

That is awesome FRQ! I really like how your car turned out. I am currently hunting for the same MR2 wheels you have for my car.

I have been trying to make the visible mods to the car period correct. all the non tercel bits are from 80's Toyota sports cars.

If you can find some i definitely recommend the Supra seat, They are way more comfortable than stock, have crazy adjustments and also sit about 1-2" lower.

With those seats and the Celica GT steering wheel, It feels like a Very very slow sports car lol

Found a Pic of my Skidplate. It is made out of 1/4" UHMW plastic. I was going to go with aluminum, but my buddy already made one for his car so i just used his as a template and cut it out for mine.

It worked great, bounced many rocks out of the way, and slid on some others. super light too!

Thanks! If you wouldn't mind posting some pictures once you have 'em in that would be great.

@LowBuckCanuck

The tire size is a 215 70 r15. They are 15" Aluminum rims off a An Ford Escort GT, i have a set of those, and a two spares on wheels from a Saturn SW2

I have a set of 205 75r15 tires that will go on next. They are about a 1/4" taller at 27" and about 1/2" thinner.
Hey man, so I'm in the process of getting some wheels made for the Tercel from fifteen52.

I used your car as a reference (I used your pictures from the forum). I hope that's cool with you.

The wheels I'm planning on getting are 15x7 +40. They're going to protrude about an inch more than yours but 5mm less tire poke making it about 20mm more poke in the end (since I'm going with 205/70R15s and I think you're running 215/70R15s)

Based on your fitment, do you think the outer and inner fender can clear these wheels?
