Okay well i finally got my White 90 Targa back. Car was originally a GTE car with a R154. I traded a 94 trans am for this. The car has blue interior that is Immaculate. This car is also a Rust Free car! Im dropping a 1JZ in this car and also doing almost a full resto on it. I picked up a 1JZ about a month ago and a bunch of parts. I was going to keep the twins but i think i finally decided to go one big single. Probably a gt4088. Maybe a quick spool valve in the future ;) But ill post some pics of what it looked like when i had it with the 7m and what she looks like now. Been workin on here for the last week or so prepping for body work. Throw me some ideas if you have any!
Please and Thanks!

Here what she looked like when i had her runnin.







Those are before i got rid of it. Well here is what it looks like now.

I would have turbocharged that Trans Am instead of go through what you're doing. But, congrats and welcome to the MKIII club.

I traded my 98 GTP for my 91 Supra. Definitely worth it to me.

don't forget to remove the endcaps from the rocker panels - front and rear.... to avoid surprises later - these hold debris and moisture against the body..

I would also recommend taking a very close look at the seam in the rear wheel wells as they were poorly sealed from the factory...


otherwise it looks good...

Thanks for the comments everyone!

#04-i did pull the front ones before i left and they were clean but the rears havent been yet. Kinda scared to look ha. But is there anyway to like seal them off so moisture doesnt get behind there after you put them back on? But i didnt know that ill check the rear wheel wells. I should probably reseal them just to be safe so no suprises later like you said. Thanks for the info. Will definitely come in handy!

I'm with sourpuss here, sell it and put a cold air on a mustang. Stupid people building supras... what are we, do it yourself enthusiasts?

You suck kid. Get a real car, like an MKII!

haha nice comment steve :p But you need to drop the 2j into the MKII!! I say enough pussy footin around and lets do it!

Supraguy-Thanks man! yea its alot of work and hard to stay motivated but seeing it done is a great feeling! I think its going to be an arctic white and then the body line where the ground effects are and the body line on the rear and front bumper are going to be a dark metallic blue. Going to try to get a blue that matches the interior. Make it stand out a little bit more.

once the area is cleaned and painted, seam sealer? then replace cover is what I did... and some new plugs...

for the wheel wells look for areas of poor/compromised adhesion of the rubber coating, stonechips = perforation = moisture build up

Front Fender before sanding


Rear quearter after first coat fiberglass

Oh and after taking mirrors off i remembered i have two different mirrors. I have the right passenger side one that looks like this

YOU JUST GOT THREAD JACKED, BIIITCH!!

Before I started this new meth setup I needed a back trunk.

More work than I anticipated










My entire plan for the vehicle is pure stealth. I thought, now how can I hide a 5 gallon meth setup?






Yep, a False Sub woofer would be perfect!






You'd never suspect it! Honestly think about it!


Wanted a PITA free setup, so....hinges.(internal:)




5 gallons of neat meth is dangerous; didn't want any meth to escape.
Check valves allow air in to keep tank from sucking in and caving.




Almost done, more work than it looks like..


Easy fill, box is being reconstructed to barrier tank, air passage will be through box bottom/trunk floor/ spare tire plug to outside.


Ricer:"What are you running?"
Troll Mode Me:pump Gas....but hey come check out my sub woofer! (fully functional too)

Meth is kind of illegal bro ;) Oh wait. Methanol. Woops! LOL

Dude, that rust around the targa is nasty! I have some bubbling up the paint on the passenger side. I'm going to end up taking everything off again and redoing it. I think I'm actually just going to grind down the paint and rust until I hit metal, then body fill/prime/paint/clear that area. I need new front window trip along the top >.<

lol ya but big v helps a little. He screams "Holy Shit!!" and grabs the old shit bar. Thats when you know you were going fast and your car is running good haha nah jp. yea to bad we blew a coupler that day..again.. oh well as soon as you get your new one we'll test it :D

redsupra'88- thanks alot man!! and ya im just lucky to have a dad that restores cars for a living. Nothing better than a little guidance on what to do. Alooot of time though, oh well :)

Moy- Haha what meth? its just a sub box officer ;) but yea the rear driver side was all the way through, and the metal is so thin you cant really weld any patches otherwise it will go right through. So what i did was take it all the way down to bar metal (or what was left of it) and shove fiberglass filler in it. The fiberglass will flex and not crack unlike bondo will. It holds so much better. And ya i need all new targa seals that sit on top. mine are not so good of shape :(
