Did some assembly tonight.
Finally installed this bit of rice I've had sitting around for the last year. Fingers crossed I don't lose it on the highway or something.
Nice blue! Is this paint or a wrap?
I wouldn't have thought I'd like that, but that colour does look good on it
Woah. That color looks awesome. Very impressed. Bet it looks even better in person .
Anodize the wheels!
Thanks guys. It's vinyl, local guy was having a special on a few colors and this was the only one that didn't completely suck. Worked out way cheaper than painting my bumper/skirts/fenders and I actually love the color way more than I thought I would.
Painted some dash panels to fix the grossness that was left behind from the Toyota CF overlay kit. Shifter panel and the most upper piece are still original, they had nothing on them and I don't want to ruin the oem finish. Used GM storm grey. It's a bit more glossy and is a metallic. It's pretty much as close as you can get for paint in a can to match the series 2 dash panels.
Took part in the draggins car show a couple weekends ago.
Did you win?
Shortly after the draggins car show I got tired of having shitty vinyl lifting at every edge so I peeled it off, sold the frp ridox body parts and put it back to stock (with some fresh headlights).
Took it to Calgary and put it on the dyno, made 455whp on a mustang dyno on 91 octane. Raced it at a local track a couple times. Got tired of only 455 to the tires and the paint being in shitty shape.
Now the guts are yanked out, I have a nice new twin scroll sound performance F1 manifold with a quick spool valve sitting here along with a smaller turbo which is a 64.5mm Borg Warner sxe with a 'custom' diesel shop supplied divided smaller a/r turbine housing. Also have some id1300x's sitting here for ethanol and I'll be changing from the megasquirt to something else. New goal is responsiveness, having a torque curve that looked like a tsunami was no fun.
Going to refresh the engine while it's out, engine bay will be getting paint along with the rest of the car. Have all new exterior trims and rubbers waiting to go in when the car gets paint.
Suspension will also be getting a refresh. It's basically a long term restoration project now.
Yes love this you really taking care as well as getting good use out of this supra.
Yeah he has probably put 2500 km on it since ownership, classic Supra! Stock supra boring, owner goes too far and gets into forever project haha
19-20k on it since I bought it.
You can't have a supra without it being fast T.
Unless your Supra is stock then it is just a touring car that gets walked on by 4 door econo boxes made for rally.
