I finished my exhaust and went for a spin.
Took it to the optima car show at work yesterday as well. Saw a bunch of cool stuff headed to Road America for a race this weekend.

I did this last week, but it's still making me giggle. My wife and I bought a house a couple of months ago. Last week, the supra came home from where it was sitting in "storage" (a parking lot). My supra now sits in my garage, and will shortly be joined by my tools. This hasn't happened in over 7 years. I'll finally be able to start working on her again. If I'm lucky, I'll have her back on the road next summer.

A new blower motor went in today. Aside from standing on my head, it wasn't too bad of an operation. It took about an hour. The old one of 31 years was full of fine, sticky, black powder. It's probably a lovely mix of brush carbon and road dirt

The new motor seems to move a lot more air, and hopefully won't make cricket chirping noises when cold on low speed. I did put some oil on the top bearing before I installed it.

Whoa. That ball joint mount is bizarre. I've never seen socket head cap screws used like that. I wouldn't have guessed that would hold up!

Got the windshield bar cut bent and mounted in place. Left just enough room to access the mounting bolts for the targa top. On to mounting the dash bar and door bars

Nice, does this have a build thread? Getting ready to cage my car.

Washed it up and drove to Austin for the Cars and Coffee monthly meet. Good showing as I estimate 500 to 600 cars were there. Only saw two MkIVs and one other MkIII, so that was disappointing. The MkIII was a black JDM 2.5TT but I never saw the owner.

Did you get any pics of the JZA70? There's a few of them in Houston

I stripped the interior for paint / body work, seats, panels, carpet, everything so it's basicly a shell. I scrubbed, washed and clean all the left over body shop dust after if came back from the shop. Seems silly to clean areas where no one will see anyway. I can't help it, I'm just very particular, I guess I'm a perfectionist.

I got in some needed love parts and an upgrade in the plug wire world.
Uncovered the 2j that came in (my little brothers car). Motor looks like its in very good condition. Only has a minor valve cover leak as far as I can tell. Getting everything ready for the swap.

Holy overkill on the lift truck batman! Way to do it up legitimate style! I am happy for you and the new heart transplant looking good so far. It is those insides that can bite you however. May they be just as sound as well for you.

I replaced these 32 year old bitches.


With these new new bitches.


I used this impressive brand; Stabilus. That included a lower replacement mounting bracket. They are much more desirable and efficient to work with over the stock ones. The new mounts utilize the ball mount end of the struts. So now I will never have to remove or mess with the interior trim plastic again. Great forward thinking on the design. I would recommend these to anyone, hands down. You can get them from Drift Motion.


Now my favorite bitch can do this again, cheers!

Nice Job. I recently put a set of those in my Supra also and they are super strong at holding that heavy hatch now. I got mine on ebay and if you or anyone need part numbers here they are for both sides:



I also just got a Supra shirt from my friend who makes shirts, they turned out awesome. If you look closely you will see the puddle of coolant from a blown head gasket under it or at least that is what I call it ;)

Thanks brother! The hood and hatch practically lift themselves up now. I was especially impressed with the hatch struts. I feel no more weight of that heavy ass hatch. I love it.

It took a couple of days because I had to go buy a couple of 11mm wrenches for the job. What an odd size. Oh what a feeling Toyota! Nice shirt and joke on the Supra. I like that shirt

I got this shirt recently.
