Well as you would of seen in my other thread my Blue 1992 Toyota Chaser got wrecked in Calgary in September with a crash against a GTO

Posted Image

Bought a new Chaser (non turbo auto 1993 X90) for a steal of a deal

Posted Image

Started to rip apart the blue one and pull the motor

Posted Image

The Fcon wiring was very interesting once I got into it

Posted Image

Posted Image

Pulled the motor last Thursday as I`ve been too beat up to work on it till now

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Then yesterday I pulled the doors off, trunk lid, interior, seats etc, and all wiring from the sides and rear of the car

Posted Image

Next on the list, get dash wiring out, clutch pedal, e-brake, then move on to suspension components etc.

I`ll keep you updated

Yea, that is a good idea... I know mine was off just one inch and it was hell to try and pull it back. Toyota sheetmetal is thick and hard to move, unlike nissan lol. Can't just hook it to a tree and pull. I tried that. Chain to the frame rail / tree going to the hitch on my truck, car would just jump about a foot in the air and nothing happened.

Seems like an odd cage design with the main hoop so far back. Looks nice though, too bad about the car.

Why not cut the roof off?? My friends were bored and we had a sawzall. Also I'm taking the cage out and will be selling it, already have a couple people lined up. And if they don't buy it I'll be using the metal for something else.

Hahaha yea I work at a stereo shop, so we have the cutout, someone took the cardboard cut out to the strippers before haha

As for the recovery, I'm almost back to normal except for my arm still hurts a day after doing any work on the car.

Took the gas tank out, had near a full tank when I crashed so got some gas for my truck! haha

And then stripped the firewall, kept the pedals, booster, throttle cable etc, tossed out the abs junk, that shit is heavy! Then we cut the front frame/struts off at the firewall.
