    Thanks - it's hypersilver paint normally used for painting wheels. So the color match is quite good - it's a little "warm" as far as silvers go, but I wanted current and future wheels to match it.

    I haven't done anything lately. It's been crazy at work. Trunk, engine dressing and key were last mini projects.

    Beautiful! Yes, if you used the Scion TC kit, you need to elongate the strut holes about 10-15mm up front. (The ones that mount the strut to the hub)

    Update. The dimmer relay worked as advertised. Rear fog is thrown on or off using the momentary switch to ground. I also installed a status LED to indicate when the light is on, since the switch...

    Yup - the 6v ones probably date back to the 1940s and would potentially still work on our cars - assuming the powered circuit had low draw.

    Never mentioned this before, but I did fuse a 360 fuel...

    Update: the relay in question is called a headlight dimmer relay and I have a new one coming. Just another case of mismatched taxonomy vs. "Latching relay," which to me seems a more suitable name for...

    Thanks. Based on my Web research, it seems 411 941 583C may also work. Yours is an older PN I think, which is even funnier, given mine apparently dates back to air cooled VWs. I'd like to figure out...
  13. Thanks for the tip. We used to use Volkswagen...

    Thanks for the tip. We used to use Volkswagen high beam switch relays (most vw cars had them from the 1980s and 1990s). They were self-contained and normal relay sized. Searching for those without a...

    Small update... Now all factory switches are wired. My 2-relay solution needs to become 5 relays for the momentary switch to work for off/on using the same pulse/pole.

    And I finally have...

    OK - those look good. I'll take that set. Can you PM me your PayPal?
  16. Thanks MacGyver, you've been a great inspiration....

    Thanks MacGyver, you've been a great inspiration. Yes, there are leveling adjustments on the OE VALEO lights. If I recall, the two adjusters were Allen head. There is a left/right and up/down. I...

    Thanks Mike and Mr. Strickland

    You're right that the illumination circuit is independent - both the positive and the ground. This is what I've found out and I used a real photo of the back of...

    Full circle. This is exactly why I'm perplexed and asking. 🙂

    All these Ferrari switches seem to be momentary switches (well 3 of 3) and single pole. I will need a high beam relay to wire the rear switch.

    My next project now will be to change lighting from...

    Update...

    So I was a little off with my guessing. Top pin is illumination + bottom is illumination -

    The pin I have above as ground is the + input and the bottom pin in the middle section is...

    Here's how I think it'll be pinned out, but I'll try and confirm once I figure it out.

    The switches average about $60 each used, so...

    Sorry. Yes in hindsight, I would have written more detail. I added the switches on the left of the steering wheel (fuel door, trunk, rear foglight). Hopefully will get to wire them tonight. Can't...

    Finally put switches in and decided to go gloss black on intake.

    Small update, but after a couple weeks searching I finally found a pristine trunk liner (carpet) without "Celica" embroidered in it. Was disappointed Lloyd Mats didn't make one, but this one is...

    I thought I mentioned it in this thread...

    I used Air Lift's kit for Scion TC. The front struts are nearly identical to T23 Celica, except you need to modify the top hole on the strut/hub mount,...
