"Your Giant is one beautiful machine!", he said enviously.

If you haven't already, get some clear indicator bulbs for the front, as the yellow ones look ugly behind a clear lens.
I got these, give a lovely silvery blue look behind the lens - OSRAM Diadem PY21W 581 Styling Indicator Bulbs (Twin Blister) | PowerBulbs

I also just fitted clear side repeaters, off ebay, look better than the yellow on my black RAV4.

Only tiny changes, but worth doing I think.

I wish I'd known the Giant came with 17" wheels when I was looking for mine.

I would do some pretty filthy things for that front bumper/fender flare combo.. Glad you got this beautiful machine back though, can't wait to see more!

Hi Smiler.

Your Giant looks great in particularly in red.

I have 2 Rav 4 Giants which I have recently purchased after searching the UK for many many months. Both in black, one is a 1999 plate 64k mikes and the other is 2001 plate 98k. I did own a silver Giant 99 plate back in 2005 but traded it in for a Lexus which I ran for 6 years.

Rebuilding the Giant's back to somewhere near factory condition so both off the road at the moment. Would like to know where I could source the engine strut brace you acquired if that's ok?

Hi Smiler. Excellent looking Giant you have there. I have 2 Giants at the moment which I am working on. Both in black but wondered where you got your strut brace and suspension bits from.

I'm based in Sheffield.

Your rav has got to be one the most known rav on the internet. Keep it forever now that it went home again.


WHAT IS THIS?

Beautiful. Your accessory kit is unbelievable. What are those fender flares? I can never find anything like that in the states...
