    Thanks guys.
    I have more parts still to go on, hopefully soon.
    The steering is 85 gts power rack with looped lines and super modified subframe, modified control arms from a Celica gts, Celica gts front struts and brakes shortend with aw11 rear shocks. Um ect ect, the front track is ~5" wider than stock balljoint to balljaont.
    The wheels are just 14" supra's painted black, running T3 33mm spacers on the back and a combo of T3 camber plates and BV adjustable lower arms to push the wheels way out!
    My new wheels havent sown up yet but I'll post more pics when they get here!

    Oh yeah Joey Jojo the omni flares! but my fronts are full fiberglass fenders.

    Is this that same flat black one you were driving up and 17th ave in? When you say me in my mango like 5 years ago?
    No, long story, this is number 3! third times a charm! Its got most of the running gear and some of the cage from that car tho.

    The fronts are ebay coilovers, 350# spring rate, the rear is leafsprings I had them made at standens. They are way stiffer than the stock leafs.
    Plus huge front sway bar, and stock 86 gts rear bar modified a bit ofcourse.

    If you don't mind me asking, what did Standen's charge for the new leaf springs?

    Nice work on the project!

    No gym for home, work out floor with 30, but is it for 20 like 30 lb when you no lift it to be for men, for 30 lbs instead? or half is 10 for 20 pounds?

    Awesome dude.

    I was thinking about slip link traction bars for my TE31. Are you planning on adding any kind of traction/anti axle wrap items?

    Looking good dude! I want to see this thing too.

    I made some super ghetto traction bars, they are already bent!
    Haha
    It has 2" blocks in the back, so with any kind of power the axle would rock, and on downshifts. It sucked. I made the bars out of 1"x1/4" flat bar thought it would be tough enough. I'll take some pics so you can see. The best way would be a link ontop of the diff on the axle that goes thru the floor to the cross member that is under the rear seats. I just need to get some hiem joints and make a hole in the floor. But how to close it all up? any ideas?

    Oh yea more pics








    Its hard to get pics of shiny chrome wheels in a dark garage

    Wooowee!! Haha I guarantee its not as nice in person:crybaby:

    Its far from perfect, but I also know all it flaws. But yeah I did all the work I even learned how to paint. It was fun, but you can tell a beginer painted it!
    For a car that proably would have ended up in the JY in a few years it has come a long way. I had to replace some floor and rocker panel, get rid of the entire interior that had been lived in by some rather nasty mices.
