    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.
    Deep Jewel Green, Aero Top, Facelift.
    green aerotop awesomeness!!! (marcAB10)
    And in answer to adams green facelift aero, you will have better luck bumming megan fox before he sells (drift_bear)
    So nice to see a fantastic dark green aero with Recaro seats on a such a nice day. Whoever owns it should be proud. It's a stunner! (Delboy52)

    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
