Yep, Toyota fitted a rubber plug to the large hole with the curved ends as well as plugs to all the other holes in the subframe. I've also used Bilt Hamber Dynax S50 cavity wax spray (http://www.bilthamber.com/cavity-waxes/dynax-s50) to protect the interior of the subframes from corrosion

Thanks Don, will get some of that, do you know where I can get the rubber parts?

As you can tell, I am very OCD with the Celica and like to have everything in place thats meant to be there, love this car! Didn't feel the same love with the R33 I had before it!

I'd try either a breaker or Mr. T for the Toyota special shape rubber plugs. Speaking with Barry at SCW he reckons you can get the regular circular plugs from a generic supplier. Unfortunately I don't have any links :-(

Another update...Rota GTR + Vredestein Vorti's. Still need to purchase some centre caps but happy with my change of styling.

My Team Dynamics are now up for sale if anyone is interested, will obviously bolt straight onto an ST205.

Looking good, nice choice :D Any idea how much the Rota's weigh?

No idea on weight, to be honest it feels absolutely fine, I am no rally driver so unsprung weight of these is going to be marginal in terms of impact on handling the way I drive.

Look really nice - in the photo they appear to have a somewhat matt finish - are they like that in the real?

Will try get a better photo, they are not a shiny silver, more a flat silver which I think gets exacerbated by the polished lip.

Very reasonable - had I known you were going I would have popped along - I can walk to SRR from my house :)

Good result Col. That's about 10bhp more than my standard JDM ST205 at SRR. I presume the difference is down to running the larger diameter exhaust system. Can't recall if the exhaust system has replaced the cat and/or running any sort of boost control?

No boost control, just has wide exhaust and a decat.

Yes sorry Mike, it was only when I pulled off the M3 I realised I pretty much drove past the curry house I realised where they were!
