looks nice. With little bit of rust which is common unfortunately on Japanese cars will be extra realistic ;)

 

I've seen rust on German cars only 2 or 3 years old.. Japanese cars had rust issues back in the 80's.. Every car will rust after a while..One thing I will say about Japanese cars over their European competition..is that they are far more reliable..

Thanks Dominik :) 

Yeh, to be fair most cars rust but the older hiluxes seem to be prone to it but the are bloody good trucks. Japanese engineering ;)

The Celica is discontinued now with a while ..The GT86 is the car that basicly replaced the Celica & the Supra is also back from.the dead. BUT it's more a BMW Z4 underneath by all accounts.

.The Hi Lux is nice..only the 2.4 L version don't seem to have the pulling power . The  3.0L is a far better option .

Thanks :) the hardest thing was trying to get it to stay in shape. I've got two tabs that clip on the inside which helps and keeps it on the truck. I didn't realise they have partnered up with Peugeot :o
