I’m getting ready to replace mine too. Mine has always been noisy and I started to question how well it was holding pressure.
That looks unique with a targa top. I have the same looking pop-up sunroof on my 86.5 I just picked up. Do you also have the feature to completely remove the glass as well?
I just used a magnet on the roof of the car.I made a camera bracket for the inside of the car. Didn't think about horizontal stability, so it isn't going to work with a 1 lb camera mounted on it haha. Ironically, there aren't any pictures of it.
Good news is, I have enough material to make it properly braced side to side, and it should be light and stiff. Think an A-frame shape that mounts to where the seat belt guides bolt to, you'll get the idea.
I’m doing research on how to modified the 89666-30180 aristo ecu harness for my 2jzgte vvti swap into an 87 7mge Supra. I see you are from Florida as well. I’m from davenport near Disney. Good to see someone local.
Fun cleaning up the harness for the 1jz car and installing the new fuel system.
A baby bottle brush works great to clean the inside of that tank. Also some super hot water, engine degreaser and then shake it up like a bartender works great also to clean up old grime.So I figured I'd show a little love to my girl today. I needed to replace a couple of bulbs. Fitted a new one in the rear license plate and open door inside lower light. I swear that bulb was most likely the original one fitted from the factory. I inspected it when I pulled it out and the filament was intact and all. But the little nipples on each cone end where gone from vibrational wear. A little thing but I still thought it was cool. Then I upgraded my Headlights to Sylvania Silverstars. They throw out such a better, brighter and more beneficial light spectrum for the eyes too. I cheap upgrade and they look aesthetically better at night than the standard yellow-ish headlights.
Then....and it's one of those annoying little details I can't let slide. After the new radiator install the overflow bottle sensor was always throwing the low level light because of gunk build up from the original owners bone headedness. So I removed it and scrubbed down the outside. It basically was all clean again. I was pleasantly surprised. SHOUT OUT TO [I FORGOT WHO SUGGESTED TO ME TO USE SIMPLE GREEN] BUT PROPS TO YOU! The stuff works magic on so many things. Then onto the inside, I didn't have anything but a toothbrush so I was only able to reach so many nooks and crannies of that little bitch.
I used a 1:4 sg to h20 mixture. But first I directly spayed simple green onto the unreachable probe inside then added the almost boiling water to the overflow tank and let it sit for and hour and a half agitating it here and there. I rinsed, rinsed, rinsed it out until there was no more residue present in the water.
You can see the spots I couldn't reach on the inside. I'll remove it again in the fall after I can locate a better tool for the job. However it's a thousand percent better than before.
Back in place and filled with Toyota red.
Now onto the best part. Did it fix the problem? Yes, with a happy smile it did. No more warning light.
I've used them in many of my cars over the years. It's the best usable light spectrum at night. I'll try and get a photo for ya in the dark.A baby bottle brush works great to clean the inside of that tank.

I have to look into those headlights. I have the Phillips diamond vision bulbs in my Lexus GS300 and they look great at night but the Supra is still rocking the old dim bulbs.
