    Talking Danno's Supra Build

    It all started in Decemeber 2005, hunting for a new car, stumbled accross a nice UK Spec Auto 1995 with 63,000 miles. Bog Standard, so i bought her!





    Over the years she went BPU with an extra FMIC, had a DoLuck front, OEM Skirts and Spats, TRD Spoiler, 19" Black/Polished Wheels, Tein Superstreets, Custom Speaker Boot Build, New Recaro's, New Dash Paintjob, few gauges, engine bling etc etc

    Here's a few pics







    Every since i went BPU i was getting slight puffs of smoke from the exhaust after overrun, so decided to remove the engine and take head off to change stem seals...

    One thing led to another and im doing a full blown restore, engine rebuild, respray (with new seals and trims), Dash Retrim (dynamat the whole interior), 6speed manual conversion, strip down undercarrage and restore suspension arms, subframes, diff.....

    and most important of all ... Single Turbo Conversion


    Its going to take a while for me to finish the job, as funds arent brilliant after loosing my job due to credit crunch, BUT it will be done, and it will be done properlly! So bare with me with the progress and updates! Ive cleared out a double garage, painted the floor, walls and put electric, bench, compressor in there, so it will be nicelly set up for me

    Right, Spec...

    Lets start off with the engine:

    Im tempted by the BC Stroker, with the CP and Carillo Package
    or just forged engine CP and Carillo again (86.5mm Pistons)
    ARP Stud Kits for bottom end and head studs
    Ive already bought HKS 264 Cams
    Getting Ferrera Valvetrain (stock size) i mean everything, not just vavles
    There's loads of little things to add to spec of the engine but im sure you know what they all are

    Turbo is going to be HKS T04z with custom made 4" downpipe
    going to use a HKS Ti system with that

    Fueling is going to be the same as a Stage 2 PHR kit

    Going to use AEM AMS with sensors and HKS DLI - or the Solaris S6 looks a bit better

    Might be using a Greddy 4Row, if not definatelly 3Row

    Thicker Radiator with Electric Fans or keep viscous

    Greddy oil cooler kit

    Clutch, well i know its expensive but im going for the RPS Carbon Carbon and RPS Fly

    Brakes will be getting uprated, 6Pot Brembo's 14" discs for front and rear will be 4pots (so will have UK Spec for sale soon)

    Im going to refurb my wheels to, try them in black as they are first with the new colour, then if i dont like i'll paint them a nice silver, maybe look into getting 19's Volk GTC's

    Im going to keep my DoLuck front, i got Blitz skirts, Trial Rear and VS Overfenders(not using anymore) She's going to be painted in Lambo Grigio Avlon Thing will look awsome with the blend of Carbon Fin and end Caps of TRD Wing and the bottom of the Trial painted Satin Black, and possibly the DoLuck Gob

    If ive left anything out, i will add as i go along!

    So... Here we go, so far

    Its been standing since March 2008 with no engine

    Ive stripped the block and head and done some cleaning

    Now after a year i can finally start the paintjob, wheeled her round to the bodyshop yesterday and got cracking

    Im removing the antenna and rear wiper and washer

    (i'll appoligise now for camera quality, my proper one is in repair)






    We left the bonnet with our friend NitroMors overnight, hardly stripped it! Dimond Tip Paint







    The Trial rear took 6hrs to repair properly, was cracked and slpit in loads of places, ohhh and the original repair was superb JAZZ!!
    Going to mount it up and carry on repairing, just incase it all splits as were fitting it all. Blitz skirts seem to fit very well too




    And thats my project to this day

    --

    Just want to say thanks to JamieP for the Titile
    And Homer for Putting it up!

    I have the same seats, they would not go all the way back so i had the rear seat foam trimmed so the front seats slotted in them, zero rear leg room but looks very tidy.

    Hmm i dont know, looks a bit bare tbh, im not putting badges there so it might look to much like a welded smoothed tailgate!
