    Well everybody, back in a toyota after having a dirty nissan for a while haha

    so the opportunity came up to buy this chaser and i couldnt turn it down as i always wanted one!

    shes looking a bit sorry for herself in these pictures lol

    2204232D-2CD0-4D40-A99B-E03437A7FD29_zpsxxrbuax5.

    063B32DE-5913-435E-9962-D5DAE35F5734_zpsdsoph86l.

    she was stripped apart to troubleshoot another chaser the fella had, so when i got her there was 2 boxes of bits lol ( i love jigsaw puzzles haha)

    8455ECF3-03E9-402B-990B-3544CC7B3045_zpsrepsakcp.

    the diff and exhaust where off her as well.. so after a few saturdays at her i finally got her back on 4 wheels 8)

    2DA9C540-7098-45F0-9684-0AD5515DD310_zpsacanawux.

    got a vertex back bumper and sideskirts for her as my original bumpers where put onto another chaser :lol!:

    333E991E-3D95-4B18-8E7C-20E69B469E96_zpsc72p7a5b.

    so shes nearly ready to drive again, waiting on injector seals to land..

    plans are to fully respray her, i have bought Dmax wings off Monky London 8)

    DFEA3D77-5F35-4185-91E9-DDFB889FAF87_zpsfg5hoy4b.

    No I've never been. I've been toying with the idea of bringing my mx5 down but too many commitments on at the minute. I'll go down an spectator sometime soon. Have you done a day there?

    Been busy these past few weeks

    Got the exhaust off and replaced the bolts as it was blowing at the manifold.

    Bought a set of back seats as mine where left behind in Japan haha...

    2E86B0E1-5597-47EB-A4D9-6476F2E86802_zpsnaungdzw.

    Up next was the bodywork, she was well overdue a respray...

    45411148-77A4-4AF6-882B-26D26470E72B_zpsrzjvajo2.

    7B4109F7-98AD-499A-B733-BA2CF68425CE_zpsy6o2rptp.

    5EDBE3F9-1B32-4765-8EC6-C8AB69734F85_zpsi3ticjz7.

    The bonnet was a right state, I knew there was a few layers of paint on it so I cracked out the Paint Strippers

    65BE3FBF-BC9D-4BD5-BDB2-E060D73B2117_zpsyrkaviwx.

    Started to lift straight away

    7B10B044-604A-40E5-9441-29AA196F7B9A_zpsggowomxk.

    BEA4311B-8C0F-4DA5-BD3B-453CB3C9165F_zpsfequulpn.

    10 layers of paint later and it’s down to the tin

    23E17FA3-3E05-48AB-B9BF-4194C083022A_zpsdrknzw7l.

    Hope to have her primed this week, and hopefully painted soon after ..

    Then MOT is up next

    More updates soon
