  1. It's been a long time coming, but we are finally here! There are a lot of changes - in fact everything has changed; the forum software, the web server we're using, the server infrastructure in general, even our hosts. I understand that generally no one likes change, but do I hope the overall experience on this new site will be much better than the old. Things might still need tweaking so please bear with us if anything isn't right. If you're having login problems then please use the contact us option.

  3. Still here, still pop on for a browse from time to time however pre forum upgrade for quite sometime wasn't able to post due to my "lifelong" membership expiring. I still see some of the Essex guys at various things and maintain some kind of contact with a few members on the book of the face. The Supra has been gone 9 years now! Still miss it. Would still have another but don't really have the room however have decided when i'm older to collect cars, and despite them roaring up in value its still the 3rd closest car to my heart so now doubt will have to get one. I still have the 996 Turbo

  4. Hi Guys, First of all I just want to say thanks to everyone on this forum. This forums been great, from advice & knowledge to helping me buy my 3 Supras over the years. Thought I'd take some time out today to document my build, so here goes, this is my Supra journey to date: 1st Supra - 94 UK TT Auto - Storm Blue So after buying my first UK Spec TT Auto off Jenny (AngryBird /CrazyBird off the forum) in 2015 & owning it for 4 years, the opportunity to buy Simons stock UK TT6 Manual came by (Simbasupra off the forum) Selling my UK Auto was a very hard decisi

  8. So I decided to build some model tanks. Never done any since I was a kid and the detail was amazing. I then thought I would try a bit of airbrush and got a small booth and airbrush Really enjoyed this during the first lockdown. Then as some of you know I lost my dad 3 weeks ago and whilst going through pics and remembering he drove tank transporter during his time in the army. I now have got and started to build the truck he drove. Really wish I've done this when he was here. Fiddly but helps

  9. ALMOST THERE! So we fitted the: Diff, prop, exhaust EGT, O2, oil pressure/temp sensors Oil lines, turbo, boost pipes Bled the clutch, filled the car up with power steering fluid, coolant. Supra was picked up this morning and trailered down to the SRD team Had a good chat and SRD are going to make a harness for the VAG coilpacks and various sensors, do the vac lines, fit the ECU, then get the car started for the first time then run it in and map it... Fingers crossed it all goes well, no rush as I just want it all done once

  12. That is where I am at. No denying how great he is, but it is the whole BS attitude that comes with it. There was an article about his BLM stance a while back and when asked if he would boycott racing similar to US athletes have done, he soon back tracked. But hey that's his choice I guess. And our muppet MP's are calling for his tax evasion to be overlooked and to pop a Knighthood on him. I personally do not think a self centred, cry baby with tax doubts hanging over his head is Knighthood material.

  14. One of my devs is big into making curry's. He gave me some frozen "base" which is then used to make loads of different curry's. I did this one and it was gorgeous. Notes: Double everything. The recipe is a single portion which feeds 1. Only things not to scale up exactly double are salt, and possibly the peppercorns. Tomato paste is 1 parts tomato puree to 3 parts water (mix it and it should be rather thin). For the base, dilute with 300ml of water

  21. Thought this may be if interest to some of you, High Performance Academy are offering 50% off all of their courses for Black Friday https://www.hpacademy.com/all-courses I'm really tempted by a couple of them, even if I don't have a lot of time for it at the moment. Seem to get decent reviews online from a search around the forums etc. The 'Starter Package' seems like good value with the discount: https://www.hpacademy.com/hpa-starter-package/ (No affiliation whatsoever BTW, just thought it would appeal to a few on here )

  26. Long shot maybe, check the cabling going from the door into the chassis, happens on Polo's! It's the flexing of the door opening and shutting.

  27. Have you looked at the mechanism itself as I had a similar issue a few years back and it turned out it was a frayed cable in the mechanism itself maybe worth a look.

  30. So to have a BLM stance you have to boycott races and obey what the baying public say you should do? I'm sure his contract and employers would forbid him. How Hamilton choses to represent his views is entirely up to him. Ridiculous. But yes, remarkable achievement in the modern era, from one of the greatest drivers.

  31. Wow tough crowd 😄. So no expanding foam or T-cut was used in the refresh chaps. but after finding the rust on the sills etc, I decided a full respray would be required along with the metalwork to have the rusty stuff cut out and replaced. Now financially this makes no real sense, but like I said, it was a welcome distraction to the lockdown. I also wanted to save the supra from an early grave which made the spend easier to digest. So I got busy and started to strip the car down to reduce the outlay on the respray.

  35. You need to move on the Denso condenser fast as its an item rising in price fast. Whether that is a sign that Denso are or have phased out production or just Supra tax I don't know. But, the part has doubled in price in 3 years. Now available in the USA for around US$100 so I'd expect it'll land somewhere around the £150 mark. The Denso p/n is 4770589 and the drier 4780500.

  39. On an aside, if you're anti roll bar is that badly corroded I'd take a day and have a good look at the condition of the rest of the underside, as theres bound to be other bits in dire need of replacing.

  42. The Japanese OEM wheels were all 16". With 7j width fitting standard 225/50R16. It's rare to find the OE wheel in a 16" 8j to take a wider rear tyre. Its acceptable to fit the UK or Euro spec OEM 17" wheels onto a jspec. They are hard to find though. If you struggle to find a 8j wheel then you can go up to a 235 tyre on the 7j to get a wider tyre on the rear. There is a 17" OEM set for sale in the for sale section of this site at the moment. You probably need to become a member to view that. They don't come up very often so you may want to check it out sooner rather than later.
