Ok so Aphxero and myself finally got to work on this thing. I blew the engine so Saturday we went and picked up a wrecked MKIII Supra. It has a new clutch, rebuilt trans, rebuilt motor and most importantly, all the 5 speed parts I need. Here are some pics from day 1:

That's it for day 2.

 

On day 3 we made the final push and put everything together so no time to take pics. We were able to make everything work withh the parts we had from both cars. My brother put the finishing touches on the car today and I should have it back tonight. I'll post pics of the finished product tomorrow.

The Supra seats bolt in only on the 2 outside holes. You have to make brackets for the 2 inside holes.

 

Got some new wheels, rolled the fenders and lowered today:

The MK3 seats bolted right up on one side? I'm having tons of problems fitting mine. Did you drill a hole for them pins? You got any pix of the inner brackets?

I just cut the pins off.

 

I can't lower it anymore in the front. It bottoms out after about 1" of suspension travel. If I lowered the rear any more then it would look bad withh the front still so high. I'm pretty satisfied withh it right now.

Thanks all! I got the curtains on ebay. They were made to fit LS400 but they almost fit the Cress perfectly. They were only $75 shipped so I took a chance and it seems to have worked out.
