Ok, bought a 76 RA29 about 3 years ago. Started in on the build and got distracted. First was MkII Supras and then that led to Cressidas, specifically, the MX73 chassis. Well, I sold off both of my sedans(kept the wagon... I am not a complete idiot :lol: ) and started to look for something to replace them. After a couple of weeks of soul searching and what not I decided I needed to quit looking and get focused on the Celica. I went on Rock Auto and went on a spending spree. To that end, I got the first of the three boxes today.
New brake hoses for the front, upper and lower.
New cap, rotor and PCV valve
New clutch master and slave cylinders. I have two more parts cars, both 5 speed, but these were so stupid cheap, I had to buy them.
Last but not least, rebuilt calipers, one loaded, one not. Unfortunately, they only had one loaded caliper. Otherwise I would have bought two.
The front struts are broken down right now. The tubes are being de-rusted by electrolysis right now with the backing plates, springs and other bits to follow this weekend.
I have AE92 strut inserts coming for when I chop the springs. Ran by the local dealer today and ordered NOS dragons and script emblems. Still have valve cover gasket, Plugs, wires, radiator hoses and gaskets headed my way.
Rather than search for the thread, this is how she has looked for the past couple of years or so.
Wheels right now are going to be cressida steelies. That may change later, but it all depends on getting a 5 lug conversion done. To that end, I am also picking up a MkI Supra rear in the next week as well.
