The supra moves under its own power!!!!!!!!!

Witch may not sound like such a big deal but.... It was good to know the gearbox we kind of built (BMW box Toyota bell housing) And the clutch and prop shat that we had to fabricate not to mention the all fabricated gear linkage all works. It was a very happy moment in the workshop :driving: :driving:

Chris has been off work and working really hard. Its really getting close now. And hopfully in the next few weeks it will finaly be done. Then we can start work on the Soarer and then my z4.

Nice collection of Supras you have got there now mate, I have always liked the supra they have a great shape and look
shame about the interior, A fella up the road from me has a turbo one done up to the nines it looks and sounds the business.

What colour are you going to paint the one that's nearly finished?

I loved my old Supra, should have never let it go to Sweden :cry: :cry:
It only did 15 to the gallon but it was well worth it.

It was my daily driver but was worth it.
Don't know how much it cost the guy who bought it from me to drive it back to Sweden.

So the supra is booked in to attend a hill climb event on the 17th of September!!!

The final paint is being done this week. It has had its 3rd body wiring loom!! The gearbox is hopefully due back next week. And i am there to night to finish of the welding for brackets for the PAS tank and catch tank brackets. Fingers crossed t will be getting mapped and aligned very soon and it should be finished.

I will take pictures this evening and update tomorrow.

After a very busy weekend and a very late night night on Friday building a second box. The car has driven under its own power. The engine pulls hard the box hasten blown up yet and it all seems good. There has been so much custom fabrication work. Virtually everything has been modified to work and fit. I am very glad its nearly finished for now.

Hopefully after my daughter is born i will find some time to get all the jobs done to my car. The list is growing. And i am really fancing similar levels of customization in my car.
Some pictures.
