    Project Ookii Ao: Road to 500whp

    Doors and fenders installed, rolled out into the sunlight. Prepping bumpers and spoiler now.

    Project Ookii Ao: Road to 500whp

    I don't think I've used radio in any of my Supras for more than a couple minutes in the last 12 years. I won't even notice it's missing. :) I'll use the weight savings of ditching the antenna and associated antenna cable to help offset the additional weight of the subwoofer and amp that I'll...

    Kaminari shaved the antenna hole on the current rev. Agreed on the lips. I would buy a JDM two hole in carbon right now. That's what I want. Most the lips available now are too aggressive or bulky to match the look of the car with stock or common side skirts. Not to mention the fact that they...

    Project Ookii Ao: Road to 500whp

    I have no idea. I'm suspicious of all the options I see out there right now. I'd pay a few hundred extra to ensure it's a good and reliable system. "Stance Parts" makes some I think, but I don't know about quality. I'd like to do high speed runs eventually so system dependability are paramount...

    No, I don't like the bumpers. I'll keep factory rear and front for now. I *might* add on the kaminari side skirts. There's a guy on instagram with Kaminari side skirts, 3 piece wing and a greddy front bumper (or Shine auto type G or something). I think his looks really good, but I think I like...

    Fenders turned out quite well. I still had some sand scratches show through on this latest round. The most aggressive grit on the high build primer was 320 followed by 400 and then 500, but I must have failed to get the 320 scratches out in a couple areas. Overall though... damn good for a...

    Where did you find the forms? I am registered, but can't see any form or opt-in.

    Project Ookii Ao: Road to 500whp

    Yup, that sounds familiar. Most my car work happens during naptime or after the little one goes to bed. But that time also has to go towards the YotaMD business and spending some downtime with my wife. The car work is last in line so what used to take a day in my college days can now take a...

    Rolled her out into the sun this weekend. I think the results will work out just fine...

    CRISPOGRAPHY... Come Fire Walk With Me... VOL. II

    That is purdy. Those rear hips are real nice.

    Gauging interest

    If I didn't know your screen name I would have said this was a troll/spam post. You have to provide more details. You know we all want parts availability. You didn't need a new thread to tell you that. What parts do you have in mind? Most the parts requests are for things that are not easily...

    I tend to lean this way as well. I think there's good reason no OEMs use poly bushings.

    On the body so far I did the following. I'll use a similar approach for other panels. 1. Epoxy primer (Omni MP170) - 2 passes 2. High Build Urethane Surfacer (Omni MP282) - 2 passes 3. Epoxy Primer (Omni MP170) again where I blocked through the previous primers - 1 pass 4. Base Coat (Deltron...

    To some degree, I agree, but SF is insane. I've visited multiple times. I don't get why folks live there if they have any desire to live in a home. Unless you're pulling in $250k+ or you inherited a trust fund, there's just no way to not be house poor for life. I'm grateful we bought our home a...

    Actually be able to afford a detached home larger than 1000 sq ft on less than a surgeon's salary, for one. ;)
