1/1 TRD 14r in the UK (I think)

Here is my imported Japan-only TRD 14R, a road going version of the TRD 14R60 track car, modelled on the TRD Griffon that lapped Tsukuba in 0:58:407 with only aero and non-engine related mods. It has come with a few mods on it, the dealer-added TRD wing, LED light upgrades in the interior, feels like a TRD short shifter and i'll add anything else I come across.







After over a year of ownership, I have finally got the first few mods on the car, and also uploaded a youtube video with some how to's on there - please take a look if interested.
In the first video I have done a walkround of the car and installed the following, (TRD oil cap, rad cap, fuel cap, gear knob, document holder and Perrin boot closer), which I feel like the car should have had anyway!













and if anyone can help me find one of these, please let me know





Here is the youtube video

Ah thank you very much! I have been stock piling parts for years, but I got those from an AU ebay store called Japex Trading, I did a large bulk buy from them

Always love to see a 14r/14r60!

Excited to see for what's to come and the TRD stamp on the door sill is neat. Didn't know they had that but really cool to see.

Continuing on with some of the smaller jobs, I have installed a TRD strut brace, TRD battery clamp and USDM rubberised boot floor mat, this covers all the way up the back of the seats too and has a stupidly large 86 logo on it!











and the new video is here

This week I have been starting to update the interior of the 14R. I have removed the stereo and ETC system, about 4kg of weight in total, they aren't needed whilst it is sat in the garage.

I have also installed a Grazio & CO 4.2 TT USB ports, as the JDM models didn't have a charging port. 2017+ and TRD interior trim parts from USDM model, BRZ auto folding mirrors and TRD kneepad.

Here is the wiring for the GPS for the ETC system, the stereo and the reversing camera removed




The Grazio & Co USB chargers installed







and the driver's and passenger interior trim update from the 2019 USDM TRD model





Added a console side TRD kneepad



Oh and I also found my Drivejoy, well an air freshener that was shoved in amongst all the wiring!



And here is my third video showing my progress
