Installed my new seats last night. Don't have pics of them in the car yet, since it was finished long after the sun went down.
Prepping for installation.



The planted seat brackets I got also made me ride wayyyyyyyy too high. I was using MK4 Supra seats before, and this shot me up a few inches in the seat moving to them.



Seats are Braum Elites if anyone is interested.

Since the planted brackets won't work for me... I just did this.




Also, I had previously installed a new shift **** and shifter boot in the car. Here is a current interior shot.

Excuse the mess. I'll have it cleaned up this weekend more and will be posting better photos to my instagram: @draelren

In the mean time, here you go. (Yes I'll be switching to black interior soon, already got the first parts on the way)

Well it's nothing special but today I replaced my stock original 80 amp 1993 2JZ-GE alternator with a "new" Denso OEM reman 100 amp alternator. The original made it 246,500 miles and 25 years before failing!

(Oh, and to make it easy to do without lifting the car you'll want to remove the fan clutch. I used a Mac Tools 12mm "torque adapter" for this. Snap-On also sells a nearly identical tool. This was essential to making the loosening of the four nuts and re-torquing them to 12 ft-lbs. by getting a torque wrench into an extremely tight and slim space that a common socket would never fit. I also compensated for the difference in force that the torque adapter introduces with a setting of 10.5 ft-lbs after using this calculator to determine the correct setting: http://www.cncexpo.com/TorqueAdapter.aspx)

Metric torque adapters are hard to come by. I think it's basically Mac, snap on, and 1 other company that sells on amazon.

^^yeah I really didn't want to spend that much on a transmission but, considering how much used ones with unknown mileage go for these days I said screw it lol. Then I'd still have to pay to get it shipped and rebuilt and after all that, I new one for just a little more money seemed like the move.

So ready to put these on. Need to get my friend to spray clearcoat on them and get some butyl glue and she's set. Restoring old headlights is actually quite fun.

I know this is a little late (as you've already ordered it), but I believe there's a guy on the celicasupra forums that makes a kit that cleans up the slop on W58s. I'm pretty sure they work on all W58s, but I would ask him first. If you were interested, just google "w58 shiftgasm".
