Sup guys.. I have my build thread posted over at Supra Forums but decided also to post it on here as well for those of you that are interested in viewing it.. Below I just copied and pasted the post that I have made so far. Hope you guys enjoy.
Hey guy's I'm here bringing you my 95 Soarer build. I didn't have any pictures of it when I orignally got it just some pics of what I've done so far. Will try and post pics of stuff as I go.. Thanks to everyone so Far who helped on Supra forums with parts and stuff.... So on to the pictures....
With the old rims on and some dents
1JZ Stock Twins Cleaned and sprayed it down with WD-40
Sprayed the spark plug and upper timing belt cover
Prepping interior panels for test spray
Base coat on upper timing cover and cup holder
Metallic Red Trial Paint
Turbos XS Manual Boost Controller Installed (PITA)
Can someone tell me what this means please. It came on the car from Japan.
Laslty.. Changed the rims to 18x9 F and 18x10 R Motegi Touges-- Side skirt cracked from highway incident...
Things that came with the car
Bride Low Ride Seat
Blitz Boost Guage
Greddy Turbo Timer
Cat back 3" exhaust
Car is BPU right now
More photos to come guys...
Holset HX35 for single conversion
440cc Supra Injectors
Have to Fix:
Exhaust (May have to get a new one made)
Body kit and Paint
Change Flex Disc/Couplin/Guibo etc etc....
So after the 3500lbs Soarer dropped on me A while back a few buddies of mine and myself took a day to change my drive shaft couplin/ flex disc/ isolator/ damper... Man.. This thing got a lot of names.... We ensure that the car was more secured this time... Yes we are laying on sheets of plywood.. No garage here.
Here is how it suppose to look (Nice giant can of WD-40)
And this was the one removed
Loosening the center section--The wrong way... We made sure the bolts were torqued back and Loosen the center the right way... (One of my friends helping while I take a photo)
All installed and looking like new
Also replaced broken exhaust hanger on subframe --- No pic of it being installed...
That's all for now folks.. Will be posting some more stuff shortly..
Planning on repainting all the interior accent pieces a different color. and also the timing cover and spark plug valley cover.
Awaiting my power steering pump to replace the leaking one. (The old one will be reconditioned and shelved or sold)
Thinking about flat blacking the hood, roof and trunk... Not sure about that quite yet... It may be sleep getting to me... Continue to show your support guys... Thanks for viewing so far..
Changed my injectors to 440cc Injectors... There's a write up on here placed in the Performance section.
UPDATE!!!! Well sorta... I wanted to start to repair the kit on the car.. Where I live the road have alot of pot holes and we also have a few not so good drivers... The rear bumper had its turning point when I pulled it on a parking stop that cracked it further... With that it's going to lead to me repairing the whole body kit on my car starting with the rear bumper.. For anyone that ask, the kit is either an origin kit or a replica. I'll have to pull the front bumper and side skirt to confirm. Now on to the photos...
Soarers just do not look right without a rear bumper cover... Oh.. Anyone that have the foam bumper reinforcement that they want to give away for free PM me. Will pay shipping to 33023..
Yeah it looks pretty gruesome.. Taking votes on if I should delete the second exhaust exit as I'm running a single exhaust...
Left side cracked...
Had to build this section back up. Had a huge chunk of it saved..
Appearantly the rear bumper was repaired before... Didn't really see any fiberglass with all the resin they used.. Didn't have a grinder to remove all of that stuff so just sanded over it..
Attaching the missing piece and then using tape to build the missing piece.... Painter's tape rocks... When the fiberglass was dried it did not stick or hardened with the piece...
Front of bumper.. Will grind down crack to add fiberglass to try and minimize bondo use..
