  1. So as ive been making / reproducing parts that have been discontinued etc from Toyota to keep these cars on the road for the last couple of years, my latest part is the front bumper reinforcer / impact bar as i get asked for a lot so decided to make a big batch of them. I was luckily enough to have the last few from Toyota, kept one back for a template as well as the factory used ones..... i actually weld all the way around unlike Toyota do on the end caps and also the ends are also curved as they are intended to be for a safety point of view and more importantly to fit properly unlike

  9. Finished And thats the job done, shes gleaming. One tone of silver. Loads of new bits fitted to her and i couldnt be happier. Since day 1 of ownership it needed better paint and that hurdle has been crossed finally. Now to start putting more attention towards converting her over to Manual.

  10. I had my Supra evaluated beginning of July 21 by an expert company for classic cars. They came by to see the Supra in detail, did some researches and came up with a great report. The value of my Supra July 2021 is 95.000 EUR ; with rising price. My insurance company agreed on the new value.

  11. Hey Folks, Small update from Matt today, he’s got the windscreen wiper arms painted and reinstalled, plus the fiddly job of getting the windscreen washer jets and associated plumbing fitted to the vented carbon bonnet. Think that only really leaves modifying and reinstalling the front wheel arch liners, and then a final polish. After that it’s a waiting game for the new wheels and the reworked headlights from Harry Moore. So close to being ready for the trip to Lee P/SRD for the next phase of mechanical work. Can’t wait!

  17. Well my Rock Auto order finally turned up today. I got spanked for £55 in duty/VAT. That was for the compressor, seal kit and expansion valve. Unfortunately the electrical plug on the compressor was smashed to pieces. Luckily I was able to swap the connector over from my old pump. Not ideal but certainly easier than trying to return and exchange it! I've also swapped over the upper plate with the old pump and it all fits perfectly. I still need to clean these parts up, but it's good to know it is a straight swap.

  18. Finally got the engine bay painted today! Started by cleaning out the paint booth. After giving it a good sweep out i literally took the jet wash in there and washed everything out.. all the walls, doors and floor. Then cleaned the car down with an air line - genuinely forgot what it looked like 'clean'! Then into the booth, jacked up, wheels off, subframe brackets off and everything masked up. 197 Obsidian black base coat Lacquered! Photos were taken after a 30 minute bake. Really impressed with this Lacquer. Well worth the money

  24. Afternoon All, So bit more progress on the interior. All glass work now in so cabin is dust free. Matt has been busy installing the rear seat, the reverse camera mirror is now in, as are the carbon inner door handles, lower carbon glovebox and carbon centre console lid. The new boot mat and floor mats are also in. Unfortunately my Carbing rear strut brace doesn’t fit. Annoying as I had it powdercoated in the dark copper to match the front brace. It’s not even close as it’s too long. I’ve decided to hold off on fitting the carbon windscreen scuttle panel, will look at this

  25. New sound system installed forgot to take pictures but rear/doors sound deadening. Srd speakers brackets and amped speakers everything sounds so much better. new seats ordered went for cobra Daytona’s with planted tec frames. will be taking out the carpet and sound deadening the front as I’m fitting the seats. also order new matts for all foot wells and boot from fitmint automotive. will update with pics as/when everything arrives. and finally off the Srd in September for the r154 swap which I can’t wait for.

  27. Today i got last nights paint polished up - the paint finish straight out the gun was really clean so i only grazed over it with a 3000 grit trizact pad - no need for anything harsher before going over it with 3M fast cut polish. I then did some reflective heat tape in the necessary places before refitting the abs pump, clutch master cylinder and all the brake lines. My gearbox is still with Garage D at the minute but as soon as thats back I'll be dropping the engine in!!

  30. This isn't really a build thread, it's more of a supra diary just interesting things that have occurred in my supra ownership. I always enjoy reading others build threads and the like and always wanted to do one myself, so here we are, enjoy! When I was a kid my dad had all sorts of Japanese cars, mk3 supras, mk4 supra, evo 8, evo 2 and various other interesting jdm motors, so from a young age I was always around cars and grew up to love them, just before my 25 birthday in march 2016 I decided it was time to step into the big world of 300hp +, the only car that was going to scratch th

  34. Gone for stock bumpers and skirts with a trd style splitter! Always liked the look but not sure if it’s too tame and copying the many other Supra’s out there. Have some wheels coming over from the states so let’s see when they’re fitted, otherwise maybe ridox style splitter…..? I have a bit of flex at high speed on the front end, splitter and bumper. Is there an off the shelf solution or shall I just get some brackets made up?

  42. I actually put the car up on stands to remove the front wheel bearings and replace them as they sounded dry on rotation when I jacked it. So all new Toyota bearings/seals/hub caps etc were acquired from my local Toyota Branch aswell as replacing the wheel threads while I had them off. And as is tradition why not powder coat the hubs and dust shields while they are off aswell. Here they are done... Also got some new stands which is exciting times as I got them free with Confused.com insurance.

  43. Not a lot happened since other than sorted the slip control and OD issue by replacing the throttle control ECU. i also thought I’d take a grinder to the small hole I found in the rear air inlet just to see what I’m working with. Next I’m going to give the engine bay a good going over before deciding wether to keep it in, or remove it. also managed to find the code for the alarm so got another key fob programmed

  47. Up then down, in no particular order Truth is, it's pretty hard to predict. We're at a pretty pivotal point atm, we don't want to see much lower on a daily/weekly close or we'll revisit the low $20s, if not late teens. Unless you know what you're doing the best move is to sit on the sidelines at the moment and preserve capital, a choppy market like this is when most people end up giving their gains back by trying to catch bottoms. Be a buyer at $20k (previous ath) or above $34k and catch some breakout. Careful with alts too bois Very risky - They are effectively btc on leverage when w
