Exhaust done

Image

Image

Image

Nice little trophy

Image

Welded a beefy wear patch onto the part that usually scrapes on these cars

Image

How it currently sits

Image

Was too busy having fun on the drives so far. Not had the chance to take many videos. The only two I got...

Idle

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3ol1jqyaY4

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.

Image

Came in handy first day. Modified the shifter so that it doesnt hit the center console.

Image

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

Image

Much better! And I get to keep my cup holder! Win!

Image

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!!

Image

Had a quite nice collection of wheels going

Image

Got a set of old and solid tyres fitted that I have had lying around for ages

Image

:rolleyes: Ill just leave these here...

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Also mint kindly gifted a set of rear brake pads to me :thumbs: Cheers man

Image


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.

Image

And took her for a blast! Pretty happy with the end result. Paint next

Image

Image

Was hoping to get the roof wing finished, but the filler I got turned out to be acrylic based, so its still soft. Back to the drawing board

Image

Image

Then I made a start on the bar

Image

No pipe bender, so was all slightly cut and bent by hand

Image

Took a few hours, test fitted and tacked up

Image

All welded up

Image

Then went on to think of a place to mount the cooler. No space on the side of the car. Fog light, bumper and load of other stuff get in the way. So moved to the front... Not ideal for air flow to the rad, but meh.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Need to do the same for the pas cooler when I eventually get one. The bar is right up against the bumper, so small nudges will no longer cause the bumper to explode. Also gives the front end a bit more rigidity.

Then went on to de-pikey the fuel pump... From this

Image

To this

Image

Also installed a sard thermostat. And blanked the bov

So, fitted some china fans for now >_<. See how they hold up to the task. Seem to flow pretty well.

Image

Fabbed up the mount for the pas cooler

Image

And connected all that s@3! up.

Image

Not connected the oil cooler yet because I got a wrong size oil filter, and also because I cant be bothered to rush this job as the drift day is this saturday.

Swapped the fancy teal wheel for my old trusty auction purchase from last year. Cant beat this wheel. The other one hardly has any dish and I always hit the wipers and indicators with my fingertips, also im too broke to get a spacer. Feels like home now.

Image

The car was supposed to be taken into paint on Sunday 3rd May, then it was pushed to 10th May, and now my hopes of having it painted for this weekend got shot down as its going in for paint this Sunday :( Oh well, guess im gonna rock the matte look this weekend and would need to give it a once over with sandpaper again before paint.

Image

and a random photo

Had some last minute issues to sort right before finalboss last month.... Hub bolts sheared off in the carpark, haha

Image

Image

Then we went to take some pics

Image

Image

Image

Then, the following day we loaded up and hit the road down to driftland

Image

Finalboss was so much fun, hard to remember all the details now. But chilling and driving with every internet :) was awesome. Even Team Tekno rocked up

Image

Image

Me and D had no issues all weekend, while Mint was battling missfire issues, and Jites kept blowing up gearboxes

Image

Image

Weather got s@3! at times

Image

And got better at other times

Image

Image

Actually managed to get home in one piece

Image

Ill just do a photo dump from the weekend below.
