Thought it was time to start a proper thread here as things will start changing and work on the car progresses.

Summary from my introduction thread:
It's a Nightfall blue 2004 which had the Lotus approved supercharger conversion fitted back in about 2013. It's got a few non-standard parts fitted, from what I can gather from the invoice history and looking over the car:

Twin oil coolers
TD 1.2 alloys (the no logo version)
TRD airbox
Engine mount inserts
AP 295mm brake bells and rotors with braided hoses
V6 mirror plinths (I think?)
EP baffled oil sump
EP Uniball Rear toe links
LED rear lights
It had a full suspension refresh in about 2014 too.

The previous owner (RegS) was kind enough to send me loads of photos of the work he did on the car during his ownership too.

I've taken it out for a couple of drives since last week. I've already had to replace the 20amp fuse for the 12v aux socket after trying to use a tyre pump.

At the weekend I had a chance to give it a good clean, polish and wax. Excuse the photo location, my driveway isn't the most attractive place for a photoshoot.

Very nice car, been out on many runs and a few track days alongside Reg who certainly knew how to drive it

It's definitely one of those colours which looks much better in sunlight and with your eyes than it does in photos.

The seats came out tonight so I could put the harness bar in. It was only afterwards I realised that because the plastic trim was already cut and just needed a bit more off, I could have left it in place. Oh well, should be able to put it back together tomorrow.

The harness bar I have appears to be an OEM one which would fit with the 'motorsport' trim panel behind the seats. My car doesn't have that panel so the bar won't fit without a lot of cutting and it looks like I'd have to lose the rear speakers too. I've put this bar up for sale on seloc and ordered a different one from EliseParts for next day delivery. I just want to put the car back together and drive it this week!

That harness bar looks very similar to mine and you can just about dodge the speakers for it (though they're destined for the bin tbh, all they do is rattle around behind me :lol: ). Sounds like you're sorted now anyway, but would be interested in knowing the differences between that and the EP one.
