    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)

    put the new clutch master cylinder in, unfortuantely the original male nut on the pipe had a flat thread right at the begining

    rather than wreck the new aluminium threads inside the cylinder i decided to make a small joining piece with two brand new nuts on the end

    this way it screwed in with ease and had no issues and if it was going to destroy a thread when tightened up it would have only wrecked the female nut on my small copper pipe

    worked perfectly and holds pressure with no leaks

    feed pipe to slave from hose made up and bled clutch system to gain a fully operational pedal

    212 by Jonny McIntosh, on Flickr

    rolled outside for the first wash in a while

    213 by Jonny McIntosh, on Flickr

    replaced all 3 spark plug connectors and a length of the looms to each one, they had gone brittle and hard with heat causing cracking/green corrosion on a few of the cables

    214 by Jonny McIntosh, on Flickr

    ran wires for oil pressure and temp gauge to sensors on the dash

    for my own reference here really...ignore this bit

    red/black wires going into cab go to gauges, red is oil temp to gauge green input wire, black is oil pressure to gauge green input wire

    on oil pressure sensor at sandwich plate, wk stamped is ground, g stamped (tipexed white) is to black wire to gauge green input wire





    nearly ready to start

    215 by Jonny McIntosh, on Flickr

    renewed the gasket between the turbo oil return Y pipe and the sump, i had used an old one when assembling with some instant gasket, it had a slight damp oil mark around the bottom

    was enough for me to take advantage of dry pipes just now before engine was running

    old one off, new one in package beneath from toyota

    216 by Jonny McIntosh, on Flickr

    tested out reverse light wiring to make sure the new led bulbs worked

    218 by Jonny McIntosh, on Flickr



    was waiting for around 10 days for customs to release my aristo ecu

    finally got here

    217 by Jonny McIntosh, on Flickr

    plugged it in, cranked for oil pressure and checked gauge, all is well then first turn of the key:

    delighted


    then this happened:




    now moved away from the workshop so it's not in the way, it'll be stored for a short while until i can get my insurance and stuff sorted out,

    we are down to one wage at the minute as the wifes off work for a few months so it isn't priority to fire alot of money into insurance just now

    at least i know it runs sweet, i need to make sure the battery system is charging correctly, i had 12.5v on my multimeter but the battery had sat around for a while and had been cranked for oil pressure checks


    219 by Jonny McIntosh, on Flickr



    still got a jobs list to do before it goes on the road

    interior:
    fuel pump 12v constant mod at ecu boot wires
    secure aristo ecu into holder beneath dash
    rpm gauge to remove resistor in chip board to work with aristo igniter readings
    check batt light wiring

    under bonnet:
    carbon can hose
    boost gauge t piece
    tidy up wiring and secure loom
    add more earth points
    extend gearbox loom so speedo reaches
    secure lambda sensor wiring loom
    protect coolant top hose against rubbing fan shroud
    bleed coolant, check thermostat opens
    box propshaft seal replacement

    haha, I'm sure a plain supra 2j with bolt ons would get boring after 5 minutes compared to your car

    well insurance is starting on the car next month now so that's pretty exciting

    done a few small bits over the weekend, led headlight bulbs are now in, whifbitz expansion tank is now in also but that's up the side of the battery now rather than behind the headlight as the bulbs have big cooling units on the back of them

    still have a few odd jobs left to finish on the car but it's getting there! I reckon another evening of work and it'll be fully road ready again



    then I can start looking at single turbo manifolds and some gtx or precision 6266 goodness

    soooooooooooooo


    insured it, tomorrow morning is my first drive to work in the car and technically my first road test haha, wish me luck

    tomorrow after I finish working i'll be spending some of my afternoon finishing the remaining jobs on the car

    connect up the boost guage
    change the power source for the oil gauges
    connect the gbox speed sensor and reverse switch as that part of the loom is tied up in engine bay
    check all the levels again
    fit spark plug cover


    I need to work out how to fit my boost controller bleed valve with the twins

    so this is a delayed update


    bled the coolant properly, ran it up to temp and chcecked all fluid levels

    set of led headlight bulbs and 501 sidelight bulbs

    220 by Jonny McIntosh, on Flickr

    221 by Jonny McIntosh, on Flickr

    back on the road it's one week in, i've driven the car gently to bed in the new clutch and so on

    loving it!


    then the first day out for some road testing after a few jobs were finished

    i managed to take a blurry pic...

    222 by Jonny McIntosh, on Flickr

    so the door speakers had always annoyed me as i knew they needed replaced

    bought some of these on ebay, 30 quid and they are 350mm deep which suits the surpa door cards nicely

    223 by Jonny McIntosh, on Flickr

    224 by Jonny McIntosh, on Flickr

    225 by Jonny McIntosh, on Flickr

    finished the vacuum lines and had to get a few extra fittings from demon tweeks, main one i was stuck for was a 8-6mm adapter for the fuel breather

    226 by Jonny McIntosh, on Flickr

    227 by Jonny McIntosh, on Flickr

    battery system is charging perfectly

    the gauges were a good investment, the oil temp sits at a safe 90 degrees and the oil pressure is around 2 bar when warm

    228 by Jonny McIntosh, on Flickr

    here's the mileage, this is after 100km running in so just for reference that's the shell mileage during conversion, car still in km's and it'll remain that way


    229 by Jonny McIntosh, on Flickr

    water temp also sits bang on where it should

    230 by Jonny McIntosh, on Flickr

    delighted

    231 by Jonny McIntosh, on Flickr

    under the bonnet is also a great place to be now haha

    232 by Jonny McIntosh, on Flickr

    this is the oil i run all my cars on, the nissan and the supra both get this stuff
