    Hi Guys,

    A little update here been a while for the thread.

    I've been trying to use the car some more. Not been used much at all in the last 6 months.

    First up was an MOT, always a worry but sailed with no issues. Only real issue is getting the low bumper on the MOT ramp!

    Then it was to a few shows. JPS mkiv stand was great thanks to the organisers. Shame more members didn't show though!

    It was the first outing for Fosta's Hoodlock, i believe only one he made in carbon!





    Also a local show where i live. Accepted in the classic car community shows how well the supra has aged IMO.





    Next onto modifications.

    I've finally decided which seats i want to use for my retrim. (I think i'd be hung if i retrimmed my OEM confetti's which will go in storage.)

    Im planning to fit these onto some of John-D's custom low seat frames that he's kindly making for me and im very excited about how the package might look and work.



    As these seats are from a modern car everything is electric (apart from the sliding front/back which is strange) the incline and seat height is Canbus controlled like most modern cars.

    Lucky i managed to find a wiring diagram online and managed to get the recline and height motors working from a simple window switch. Im going to 3D print a holder for these in the central arm rest area.



    Once the seats are all fitted ill be looking to get the seats retrimmed along with other parts of the interior to get my supra looking similar to the picture below:



    I also finally decided to get my boot struts replaced only taken me years to get around to this.



    More updates soon, thanks for looking

    Supra is looking great Interior plans are different and nice but love the original but also understand that until we can get the confetti interior renewed it needs looking after, a real market out their for someone maybe? Well done for getting a lovely looking Supra back out there.

    You can buy the confetti fabric if you really want too. It’s 180 A sqm though haha

    I’ve always had a vision of a Dark red interior with the grey and carbon

    Hi Guys,

    Another update for the thread.

    I've had a few bits done in the last weeks.

    First up was a trip to Performance @ Hart, James sorted me out with a full service, diff and power steering fluid changes along with fitting me some new OEM track rod ends. This was the only bit i missed from the under-body restoration so at least now i know everything is new.

    Then i updated the stereo. The new model gives Carplay/Radio functionality but that's all i wanted. It's the Alpine ILX-700



    I also made up some looms for my seats. I don't know why i didn't think about including connectors for when i remove the seats so i added this in with some 4 pin waterproof auto connectors (OTT)



    I wanted to 3D print a holder for the new seats recline switches which is electrically operated. I mocked up a simple design and printed it out.



    It fit in the centre console just fine. I did have 4 switches planned as the seats are electrically controlled in both Recline and Height. But it turns out the seats are pretty high on their lowest setting. I'd never want them higher so i decided to just not connect those.



    With all that taken care of it was time to fit the seats.

    A nasty job made harder with the weight of these seats. But weight saving was never the goal.

    Thanks to John-mkivd for supply of his low profile seat rails they worked a treat.





    Next up is some work on a rear seat delete. These seats don't tilt forward so now the rear seats are even more useless than before!

    Thanks for looking

    Nice work Ric! Very tidy install of the switches and the seats look great. CarPlay head units are so good, have recently added one myself
