    Front bumper and headlight mounts are being welded in these days, but i still have to find a silver hood, or get some other colour and then wrap/paint it. If i dont find any silver one before the weekend, i will pick up green or black one that i can have for 40eur alongside front bumper brace for another 10eur. What is left to do is to have that front piece which holds the hood lock pulled out a bit and repair/replace A/C radiator and hardline tube that runs in front of radiators as it is crushed. Also i almost forgot about the right fog light, but i will be looking for it when i will have rest of the parts needed, since it is not actually needed to have the car on the road again. All in all the repair will not be that expensive, but it is still a bummer...

    Minor accident on Friday, hope to have it sorted by next week. I may be pretty unfortunate, since this is second accident within last six months... As it is right now, tomorrow I am going to have bumper, lip and headlight mounts welded, on Sunday I am about to pick up a bonnet, which is unfortunately blue and probably straighten front frame (not sure how is the piece which holds the bonnet lock, light mounts and radiators called) myself and I am going to order AC radiator and front bumper brace right now. Also I am about to pick up OZ Superturismo 16" wheels on Thursday.

    I think it should do the trick but give me a few days, to get my alloys on the car, wash it and take some photos.
  6. Well, it seems i forgot about COTM for the third month in a row... I guess i should turn on notifications for it

    I even ordered dremmel like grinder/cutter made by proxxon, but it arrived two days late. As for the other one, I might do that ona too, since I have the axle at home, but I was not able to source Honda MTF at the time, so I left it for another time. But what helped immensely was a cutting disc worn down to about 80-85mm, when I tried that it was about 10 mins of actual cutting.

    Some more updates and pics. I have successfully replaced the axle on my second attempt. All I needed was an angle grinder with cutting disc of the right size to get into the hub and a chisel. Time total was about 4 hours of cutting, prying, whacking and swearing, but after I got the nut out it took roughly 20mins to have the car back on the ground. Unfortunately, during last two weeks some other issues appeared. Exhaust rusted through and rear muffler is totally disconnected from the mid section. From what i read on fb group, Toyosports exhausts are pretty decent quality, so I got a 60mm stainless cat back for 280€ delivered, but there was obvious mistake from the seller. I paid for one, but received two full sets with a day difference... I tried to compare it to the original exhaust and it seems to line up perfectly, although it is supposed to be for MB6 not MC2. As far as other problems go, F/L upper ball joint has a nasty clank when the suspension is fully decompressed for example on speed bumps and A/C is not working, probably just needs to be refilled.

    Repairs update: Yesterday i tried to replace the broken driveshaft with no success at all. Rust vs. me 1:0. Since i dont have any airtools so i tried to get the axle nut off with 1/2" drive breaker bar. Result was two broken breaker bars. Then i tried cutting the nut, but i could not get the cutting disc on angle grinder deep enough because of extended lip of the hub. After the weekend i will probably get a dremmel and cut the rest of the nut. What i am afraid of is that i would have problems taking the axle out of the hub, if it is rusted as well... If you have any tips please let me know. I will try to hammer it out of the hub, but if it will not budge, i may as well get the whole hub out and have it pressed out at a friend of mine. For now i plan to replace just the left side driveshaft, to be able to drive the car to said friend and let him replace the other one, as i am a bit lazy to drain and refill the gearbox.

    It is VTi-S front lip i believe.

    As i said it was not worth it repairing, as the quote on repair was 10k just for airbags and other safety items. Also the floor under my feet was pushed inwards by the wheel. It probably could be repaired with the money i got from insurance, but if i was to spend that money on fk, i could just pay 300-400 more and get another fk with less k's on the clock. There was one injury though, i scratched my arm on door lock as i was getting out of the car The deck is not that sweet at the moment, since the rear bumper is cracked... Girlfriends and parking does not go well together. But should be fairly easy to repair. About those rims, i was considering banded wheels, but in my personal opinion they don't fit the deck, same goes for stretched tires. I was looking for something like OZ superturismo. Another thing is, due to Slovak legislation i can not fit any other size of rim/tire than is OE spec, unless it comes with TUV/KB certificate and if i were to get 16" or even 17" rims, only OZ have those certificates for MC2... So time will tell, i might as well change my mind in the future.

    That was my thought as well, but that was before i saw LEDs with just two chips per side, so they are roughly in the same position as halogen bulb wires. Of course i would not even try those LEDs that look like a corn cob those are just a mess. Also 12€ for pair does not hurt my wallet as much as other things on my list, even if they are garbage and i have to switch back to halogen.
