I picked up a '96 JDM RZ-s from a forum member on here and it has taken me a month or two to have anything to report.

Since collecting in June, the car has had a full respray. Old attempts to rectify lacquer peel with rattle cans and apparently a very abrasive cutting compound (read 40 grit) left the paint work in a truly sorry state.

Since getting her back from the bodyshop i have installed the Whifbitz stage 1 tuning pack - thanks for that guys, the engine note is soo good now there is no point having a stereo in the car ;p

The rest is mundane but necessary - new brakes / hoses all round and many many gaskets.

I am trying to be proactive regarding maintainence inspite of the missus. As she is my first Supra I look forward to learning from the 'well versed' with regards common issues and fixes.

Progress pics to follow if anyone has an interest.

Thanks man. The respray kept her silver. i just couldn't justify the extra couple of grand on a colour change.
