    Do also keep in mind that it is the 1987-1988 MX73 brakes that the MKII Supra guys use for their upgrades.

    Sometimes i duno what I hate more, turning tricks for crack or bodywork.

    Our suspension stuffs: The cross member is flipped and u cant see it, but me and Joel finished our manual rack mr2 conversions. Made the brackets and what not.


    The infamous leakyrollabrakebooster hole. Notice the precision, the style the excellence that is the zipwheel majeur.


    The drivers side rear fender well. I had to cut all the old flaring out as seen previously, butted up all new metal. On the inside i took off the bracing by removing all the spot welds. Split all the seams, cleaned the rust, treated it and por15'd. I'm not finished this quite yet, i still have to seal and shape it. The flares are coming soon.






    This is the passenger side well, if u lok inside you will see that i had to cut 90% of the metal by the filler neck






    And a picture of my ass on brians car.

Huge steering angle with my stock power steering rack still. I am going to buy some t3 celica supra rca's in the coming months. Supra brakes are really nice, but have a definate bias problem, with more of the proportioning in the front than the rear.
    AFAIK, that only applies to the Kouki MX73, the Zenkis will fit 14" Wheels. I know, I had them on mine.

    Hurray updates!!!



    Here u will see my fancy supra rotors, which are nice n thick and bigger than lil wee girlie stock brakes. I shortstroked my supra housings and put my gcs on. They are 8" springs with extra long perches. Spring rate is a tittah bouncing 8kg. I peeled all the old grime and ****e off and painted the entire area with rocker guard, i also hammered the fender wells in for good measure. IF u look closely ull see the patch i put it where there was some rust

    You cant seem em but there is a ton of glorious prothane bushigns in there.

    No longer red:
    You can see the IC piping holes here.

    t3 camberplates: In ordre for these to work properly i took the old strut tops, and popped the bearings out. I used the inner race as a spacer by cuttin it in half. You have to keep enough space at the top of the strup top so that the shafts can clear the plate for angle. Thi salso keeps friction down and keeps the shaft from rubbing the bearing races.

    mr2 brake booster, 2 new brakelines which ive re routed out of the turbos way and an mk2 supra brake master cylinder.

    In order to make the brake booster work i had to modify the rear of the booster. ITs to long so i used the new cleve thinger and shortened the rod some. The lenght and throw is now the same as stock.







    The mr2 steering rack, you need to make 1 custom mount fo rthe passenger side and use the oem one on the left. The rack had to bge lenghtend so we took two steering colums cut em up and welded me togehter. U can cut the bottoms and but em together. You leave a bit of the shaft sticking out the top to butt inside the column on the car. Weld repeat.

    Painted 79 supra housing.
    I welded the gts spring perches onto it, took some math but came out well. The rest of the mounts i left.


    rice: mk2 supra calipers



    flare removal



    I spend days cleaning all teh crap under the car and spraying with more rocker guard. Its nice n clean now and i dont get crap in my eyes'

    As u can see im done almost al lfo the rust repair, i regret to say i halfassed the wheel well lol but fawk im sick of it. Its all welded and smotherd with seam sealant.

    WOW. You are an inspiration. I was dreading doing a little rust repairing.. but you've done 100 times more than I plan on doing.

    Could you post up more pics of the repair of the "brake booster leak hole"? Mine is rather large and I'm not quite sure how to go about fixing it.

    Your car is going to be crazy. Don't crash!

    The hole was in the wheel well behind the suspension. It was from a leaking mastercylinder. I just cut out the chucnk welded in new metal and sealed it with marglass.

    The first few pics are what I did, I had to modify my crossmember because a) I'm cheap b) I had a AW11 manual rack prothane bushing kit I wanted to use.., the rack is narower so you have to mod the cups that it sits in... If you use the T3 kit(30 bux) you can bolt it on Or machine yourself spacers out of Delrin. That said All I used was the AW11 rack, 2 GTS columns( I suppose you could cut the AW11 Colum up aswell....) GTS lower Knuckle and welder.. also not shown is I plan on drilling though, and pinning the inner piece to ensure it doesn't let go, and if it does it will be spectacular.
