    Lol, I recognize that hoist! I have to maneuver around those guys everytime I bring a Landrover or Jag inside.


    Or you could have said "sorry, my kidnap victims keep kicking my elbow, it made me drop my crack pipe and swerve"

    This is why i pester you about if its done every time i see you haha. I knew it was gona some seriously quality ****.
    Take a note from this people, this is how you PROPERLY build a corolla. I cant wait to see this thing sideways, that is if its still visable in the mass of tire smoke.

    1.75 DOM front bumber made to fit the junky vertex i will explode-fortress fab product.

    decided to make the rad support removeable to make my life easier,bolts back into place with a couple 6mm bolts


    a very simple gauge pod i made with all mechanical gauges.they are Jegs products,boost ,coolant temp,voltage,oil pressure.fitted some ABS to the side so you dont stare into a gaping hole where the dash was cut to fit the cage.



    battery cable run throught the FW beside the clutch MC then makes a hard turn into the feander well where its mounted every 8" or so with insulated steel straps.
    this was a real fun job i had never done before,making the battery cable,crimping the eye ends on then finishing it off with some shink tubing



    battery disconnect switch mounted below rear tail light. i put the ground on the switch,for theory that was explained to me a while ago but have forgotten-it made sense.i am goin to put a second switch prolly in drivers reach in the cabin and have the positive go throught it. for now it will get me up and running.




    here are the much promised "after" pictures of how the rear quarters turned out after the frame pull.*note* no bondo,no paint,not any paint repair- it all came back with the frame pull.very happy with that.



    the mill-MUCHO GRACIAS to 666 for remachining the valve cover for me to make it all shiney again.
    there are some goodies on it/in it. Matt's introduction to driving with boost.



    ...ive hit a point in this project where i just want to get this phucker done.

    I see a few of my ideas going into this car...great work! I think the reason for putting the master switch on the negative side is that the alt. will keep the engine running even after you killed the power.

    Most sanctioning bodies want a dual pole master cut off, main battery power and a smaller ignition/alternator cut all in one switch.
    Owned too many different modified toyotas to list LOL

    **** I hate improper panda jobs. WHO doesn't research before painting?!?!?! ARGH

    Car looks nice otherwise Matt, but I might splash you with a bucket of paint, mid drift at the next event just to cover the failpanda.
