Nice little trophy
Welded a beefy wear patch onto the part that usually scrapes on these cars
How it currently sits
Was too busy having fun on the drives so far. Not had the chance to take many videos. The only two I got...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y4qwEyUWtd0
Dont forget to tune in next week for "How to Fit 9.5 et -8 in Stock Arches"
I got a mig welder to help me finish the rest of the bits on the car.
Came in handy first day. Modified the shifter so that it doesnt hit the center console.
For some reason the supra ones have weird angles and the gear stick just ended up in s@3! places. So a few cuts and tacks later I had it positioned exactly where I wanted and welded up
Much better! And I get to keep my cup holder! Win!
Then everything started going bad, but I think the worst was when I took the car for a quick blast and found that I lost a sideskirt along the way. Went back to look for it, traced the route about 5-6 times, checked fields, ditches... Nowhere to be found. So some pikey now has a BN sideskirt lying somewhere that he cant use. Great!
But despite that s@3! experience, the car felt absolutely spot on! Think the boost was peaking at 1.1 bar with no sign of fuel cut.
After an absolutely s@3! day at work I got a text message that made everything better. Steve, the tyre guy came across my sideskirt in a field on the way over to my house!!
Had a quite nice collection of wheels going
Got a set of old and solid tyres fitted that I have had lying around for ages
:rolleyes: Ill just leave these here...
Also mint kindly gifted a set of rear brake pads to me :thumbs: Cheers man
Been called away for work, but managed to get a few more things done before I went away.
Carefully rolled the arches....with a jack handle. Still need to sort the bumper mount point as it still rubs.
And took her for a blast! Pretty happy with the end result. Paint next https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hVaUuvbsdZ4
