Default SChema's 1998 SC300 Black on Black

I have decided to go in a different direction with what I want to build. Going to start from scratch on a different platform before going too far into this one.

1998 SC300 Black on Black: Current mileage is at 185,029, clean title. I typically add about 50 - 75 miles a week during the weekends. Mileage is about 95% highway, doesn't see much in town driving. This car has only been driven on the weekends for the past six months. I've owned the car since May of 2009. I purchased the car right when it rolled over 170,000, I have put about 15,000 since.

Engine: Completely bone stock, I don't believe in all those little bolt-ons, so all of that was untouched. Only thing that I know have that has been changed was the deletion of the fan/clutch with the replacement of electronic Flex-al-lite system.

Exterior: The hood has been replaced with a Seibon carbon fiber OEM style, I still have the factory hood. The head lights were disassembled and refinished by the previous owner as well. I retrofitted and refinished the fog lights personally with projectors out of an ES300. I have a set of 6k HIDs running off of Hella ballasts. I was told the car was resprayed about 40 - 50k miles ago, two previous owners before, not due to wreck or damage, just the paint was starting to give and needed a fresh spray. It was a decent paint job, not one of the best though. You can still see areas were the masked off near the truck lid. Can't tell it was resprayed until you start looking for signs.

Interior: As far as I know, everything functions as they should; all buttons, switches, homelink, etc... Rear seats are in excellent condition, fronts do show the typical leather wear of a 185k car, no rips or tears though.

Suspension: The car sits on a Supra Eibach spring combo. Decent drop for what it is. I believe owner replaced the majority of the front end bushings including LCA and UCA bushings with ones of polyurethane.

Transmission: Fluid still shows a nice red tint, shifts fine, never had any issues with it.

Brakes: Brakes are completely factory. Front rotors and pads were replaced less than 100 miles ago. The rears have around 5000 highway miles if I remember right. I installed ARP extended studs on all four corners with 100-7715 made for an IS300, since none were made specifically for the SC/Supra.

Entertainment: Head unit was replaced with a Pioneer AVIC-3 touchscreen, in-car nav, video, bluetooth, etc... Two Cerwin Vega 12 inch subwoofers and supporting amplifiers powering the as well as the interior speakers. All done by the previous owner. The only thing I added was the iPod cable that is stored in the glovebox.

A/C and Heat: Both are fully functioning, ice cold in the summer and super hot in the winter.

Maintenance: I do maintenance on my own since I've had it for the last 15k miles. There wasn't much that the car needed while I owned it, just oil changes and little things here and there. Previous owner said the engine saw it's last major tune-up and timing component service at about 150 - 160k.

Price is set at $8500 OBO, no longer looking for trades. Please PM me for any questions, Thanks!

The car will be sold with factory five spoke wheels. Will update images as soon as I get them mounted back on the car.
I repeat, the Technospeeds, Professors and Classics will not be included with the car. These images reference what the car use to look like. This purchase will include the factory five spoke wheels.

I wish it did, hehe.
Not really sure what's next. My friend's have gotten a lot of work recently, so I've been given them a hand on the side, so I'm not really in a hurry to get into a project anytime soon.

I want to make sure I have every little detail covered that way the buyer will have no surprises when they check out the car. I'm sure there are still little things missing but I'm trying my best to document every detail and update this thread as I go.
