Haha! New wheels look good and the fabrication work looks ace. Nice man
Finished the exhaust last night!! So happy with it! Fabrication work is indeed ace
Nice little trophy
Welded a beefy wear patch onto the part that usually scrapes on these cars
How it currently sits
Was too busy having fun on the drives so far. Not had the chance to take many videos. The only two I got...
Dont forget to tune in next week for "How to Fit 9.5 et -8 in Stock Arches"
Man that exhaust system is a work of art
Looks amazing, may get him to fab up something for me too. Jonnys is also epic. Will have to come round see it sometime.
So the weekend started out pretty good. I got a mig welder to help me finish the rest of the bits on the car.
Came in handy first day. Modified the shifter so that it doesnt hit the center console.
For some reason the supra ones have weird angles and the gear stick just ended up in shit places. So a few cuts and tacks later I had it positioned exactly where I wanted and welded up
Much better! And I get to keep my cup holder! Win!
Then everything started going bad, but I think the worst was when I took the car for a quick blast and found that I lost a sideskirt along the way. Went back to look for it, traced the route about 5-6 times, checked fields, ditches... Nowhere to be found. So some pikey now has a BN sideskirt lying somewhere that he cant use. Great!
But despite that shit experience, the car felt absolutely spot on! Think the boost was peaking at 1.1 bar with no sign of fuel cut.
Quick update. After an absolutely shit day at work yesterday I got a text message that made everything better. Steve, the tyre guy came across my sideskirt in a field on the way over to my house!!
Had a quite nice collection of wheels going
Got a set of old and solid tyres fitted that I have had lying around for ages
Ill just leave these here...
Also mint kindly gifted a set of rear brake pads to me Cheers man
Love your car dude, got so much style [emoji106]
I can't figure how the fuck you manage to roll on the street like this haha but I like it
Few more pics.
215 on a 9.5 Wed.
225 on a 10.5 SSR.
Then before anyone noticed, I stuck the SSR on for snaps.
How did you get them on with that much stretch ?
The 215 needed a blaster but only a couple times, the 225 literally went straight on with air. No fire required.
Only because the tyre is solid though, a softer side wall tyre would have gone on with no issues.
Been called away for work last week, but managed to get a few more things done before I went away.
Carefully rolled the arches....with a jack handle. Still need to sort the bumper mount point as it still rubs.
And took her for a blast! Pretty happy with the end result. Paint next
Who the fuck is that hobo???
Tipical aberdeen hobo
sick as ever pete
Looks and sounds amazing!
The web filter at work even thinks your build thread is pornography
One of my favourite projects on here.
