I want to introduce my ride here, its a 84 Celica Supra European spec, comparable to the US P-type model.

I have bought it in 2007 and wanted to strip it down and restore it completely, but earlier this year I decided to make it my new dailydriver, so we removed the rust, repaired all necessary things, changed all fluids and painted it new in bmw alpinwhite.

This is how it looked when I bought it:
Image

Image

Image

The differential was leaking and made noises, so we did a complete rebuild, the tank was conservated:
Image

Image

Everything that we removed we grinded and painted new:
Image

We changed almost all the suspension rubber parts:
Image

Image

And we removed a LOT of rust:
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

This was maybe the worst part:
Image

Image

removing the welding points where possible
Image

cutting the bad metal:
Image

Image

And you have a big hole in the car:
Image

Image

The guy who did the metal work disappointed me, so I brought the car to a friend and had to wait until he had finished his other projects.

We had huge holes all over the body:
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

some small holes had to be filled:
Image

Rocker panels:
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

the rear panel:
Image

Image

Image

Even the metal under the seals was rusty:
Image

Image

Finished:
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

The driver door was in a very poor condition, it was quite impossible to restore it, but he managed it to keep it at least another year:
Image

Image

Image

The right fender was not original and had been poorly painted, so we grinded it down completely and made it better:
Image

Image

Preparation for painting:
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

With fresh paint:

Image

And some pictures of the finished car:

Beautiful job! I love the MA61 Supras the best, and sometimes I still regret not buying one when I got my RX-7 earlier this year.

With the body that rusty how did the frame hold up? The semi-trailing links tended to go bad in Canada. I've fought with many failing pieces, the worst of which wound up looking like this:

Great Job, makes me kind feel bad about possibly scrappy my RA64 with about the same amount of rust. Nice to see the work you did pay off!
