    Yep they definitely came with the ST bars.

    It could have been late 2007... To be fair this Supra was a rolling shell in March 2007, I drove it home from Camp Pendleton to Portland in October 2007.

    My 4" barely clears the bottom of the subframe tucked into the rounded area cutout, but still scrapes occasionally on speed bumps, driveways, road imperfections, etc..

    This is a setup I got from my buddy that was in an un-driven project. I am sure I will have to do some modification once I go to put my exhaust back on. I do plan on building a skid plate for the rear though.

    Also, I only have a 3" exhaust so that helps.

    Quick poll, should I leave my gas tank black or accent it by painting it gunmetal to match my rims and trim

    Gas tank return line fitting JB Welded seal up any micro holes my welding missed. Once cured the tank will be sanded to smooth out imperfections in the JB Weld then painted semi-flat black.

    Mock hinge built from an old motorcycle fairing (same ABS plastic and roughly the same thickness). Added a 2nd layer to thicken up the area where the hinge is sunk in. On the real console the 2nd layer will run the whole length of the console.  I heated up the hinge to melt it into the plastic, then added a layer of screen mesh over it to reinforce the hinge.  The black you see is the ABS filler rod I used, just like TIG welding.

    This finished console will be body worked to smooth perfection then covered with fabric. This of course is just a proof of concept, no need to make show quality.

    Gap no more! On the real thing I will have to create a cavity for the hinge so it sits sealed.

    A little progress today. Got the gas tank painted, trimmed the vertical center console piece and removed the vinyl wrap. I forgot about how the console was shaped so I am going to have to use the stock console as my template. I will need to construct it out of several pieces more than planned, but plastic is fairly easy to bend and weld so it shouldn't be an issue.
