Here are some updates. Haven't had much time to get on here, but a lot has been done.

Fit the Flares and was rocking my 15x8 -8 Ultra rims (with 1" 5 lug adapters)
Image

Image

Had a pair of 15x8 -32 Bart Racing Steelies for a bit.
Image

I had a pretty huge collection of rims and tires. I buy and sell a lot.
Image

Slapped on some 2" spacers for other rims
Image

At FEST
Image

Got 14x7 Enkei 92's
Image

Decided to change up the Supra rims one more time. Chemically stripped all the paint off them etch primed the inner corners and then gold painted it. Then hand polished the lips and faces.
Image

Image

In other news, i bought these back. I missed the purple
Image

For now, i havn't been pushing to progress it too much until i get the eclipse running. This is my Pizza Delivery Daily Driver and i dont have the time to do what i want to it until i get the Eclipse running.

Just some universal flares. Meant more for coupes like 510's, Z's, ra24's, 240sx's ect. They fit awkwardly with sedans like mine cuz I had so little room to mount it. Im thinking about slicing the flare along the door line and doing some of my own fab work so I can mount it higher...

Few updates.
Slapped on the rear bumper for some extra protection for the winter, just in case.
Got 15x8 / 15x10 staggered circle racing rims, still need tires for the 10's, so i test fitted the 15x8s for a few days in the rear.
Also got some new NRG solid steel/fiberglass buckets and RaceQuip 5 point SFI Harnesses.

Decided to change it up. Never stop improving.
I painted the car the cheapest and most effective way i could. I used a Wagner electric spray gun with rustoleum 1 stage high performance oil based paint "safety red"

Moar low (cut front springs)
Custom modified oem mk1 scirocco front lip,
BMW 5 series carbonfiber rear window visor,
240sx s13 coupe wangan Wing.

I am restoring a couple sets of wheels for this car as well. Just haven't had as much free time on my hands.

I still need to:
-cut up and fit the new black carpet
-strip and powder coat rear bumper
-wet sand and polish the paint smooth (is currently textured in some spots)


I now call her,
Bloody Mary

Thanks for the love!

New rear tires are on. The Hoosiers kept rubbing, cracking, and ripping out my flares so I decided to stretch on some 195/50's on the 15x10s in the rear.
Pics of that soon, just need to repaint the outer lips.

Current progress:
Welded the diff
New clutch
Swapped to a W55 transmission
Tighter E-Brake
She ran good for a couple weeks then the motor started feeling really weak, burning oil nonstop, and coolant leaked from the head gasket. So now I tore apart the 20r and am in the process of rebuilding it. New pistons, rings, bearings, cometic head gasket, valve stem seals, all the goodies. Thinking about throwing a bigger camshaft in it too, but I dont wanna dump too much money into it since i have a motor swap in the works for it, but don't have the funds or time to finish the conversion.

The Corona Should be back on the road in under a week.
I'm hoping to hit some drift and autocross events this summer. Pics soooon.
