    The one big issue I had as you may have seen in my project thread was after they had been on the car for the best part of a year and getting up to temperature from the engine they started to blister really bad! Not sure what caused it but I reckon it wasn't done particularly well by whoever done the powder coating at the company I used!

    Ahhh not good on the blistering mate, but that template is brilliant. Think ill go the calliper paint route to be fair

    Canít believe itís almost been a year since I updated my project thread I havenít done nothing major to the car to be honest apart from just enjoying taking it out as much as possible over summer

    Two little jobs I have managed to get done as itís been bugging me for a while now is :-

    First job I fitted a brass filter on my Boost Control Solenoid as itís been missing since I bought the kit, looks a lot tidier now but I would like to some how tidy up the frayed ends of the heat sleeve but not sure what to use yet.







    Second job was to buy and fit some grommets that were missing from the underside of my Supra, I always thought nothing was supposed to be in there until I see an under side picture of someone else supra and it had grommets fitted where mine were missing! So got on the phone to Steve Manley and got some ordered up, One thing that was now worring me was the condition of the car where these grommets were missing! so when i had a look with a torch I was expecting the worst and lots of rust etc But to my surprise it look pretty clean & fresh with no sign of rust at all

    Didnít do many shows this year which was a shame but I went to one thatís quite local to me in September and itís just a mixture of all sorts.

    I did start a thread about this but I Had a scary moment one day while out in the Supra driving it fairly hard and thought I had blown my turbo up!

    I went out for a spin in the Supra and all was going well once warmed up, As I come onto a local dual carriage
    way I did a few hard pulls and all was still ok but got stuck behind some cars going slower so was then off boost following them until they moved out the way, I was in 5th gear at this time and the revs were fairly high so just stuck my foot down and when it came on boost there was a little judder then a really loud pop but sort of had a dead note to it! After hearing that I naturally slowed down thinking the worst and after a while noticed the turbo wouldnít come on boost when putting my foot down I carefully drove it home so I could give it a good looking over to see what was the matter and noticed I had blown apart a join in my intercooler pipe work so not looking as bad as I was thinking thankfully.

    When under the car putting it back together I noticed the Jubilee clip had actually snapped which must have happened when the pipe popped off, also had a look into the pipe work and itís all nice and clean inside so got it all back together and itís been fine since thankfully

    While the weather was nice a few weekends ago I wanted to get the oil & filter changed, so ordered the parts from Lee and once they arrived cracked on with getting it done.

    Finally got round to doing a job i have been wanting to do for ages while it was nice and sunny at the weekend, the active spoiler blade on my Supra has gone a funny kind of faded dark green colour and didnít match the rest of the Oem bottom valence and itís been bugging me for ages! I had a spare spoiler laying around that I bought a couple of years ago so tried out what I bought on this spoiler just incase it went wrong. I have looked at a few different ways to try and restore it back to its original colour and the first was Plastidip but I found it marks to easily and wouldnít last long before it got chipped! The second was to paint it but again i was a tad worried because itís so flexible! I come across this stuff recently and after reading up on it a bit decided to give it a try itís called Matte Black Plastic Resurfacer and a Pre Painting Prep cleaner which was recommended to use first, to prep it up and remove some minor scratches on the spoiler I also sanded it down with 400 grit wet & dry paper.





    This was the spoiler before spraying and after sanding.



    This was the spoiler after spraying.



    This is what the spoiler looked like on the Supra with the miss match in colour due to fading.



    This is the spoiler all sprayed up and fitted back on.
