Small update:
I have taken a torch to my o2 to clean it out. Hope to recalibrate it tonight and get it reading right.
Started cutting up my old dash to place 3 pvc pipes for my fuel, temp and AFR gauges. The whole dash will be glassed and smoothed instead of the standard cracked look of a dash this old lol.

Also hoping to have a friend help me start learning body work soon to straighten out the tail light section of my car.

Current status of the car:
I drove her about 100 feet. First time she has been driven since I bought her. It was a nice change.
I have also started wiring up the radio harness and running wires for some gauges. Want to get that done before installing the new carpet.

Here is the work I have been doing on my dash.
Image
Image
Image

Tweak to the mounting of the tercel coils and wires.
Image
Image

Decided to try and customize my oil cap. This was a spare one.
Image

Cleaned up the heat shield for the master cylinder.
Image
Image

Cleaning up the running lights.
Image

Current look of her.

Hoping to keep the momentum going. I am planning to get a temp tag on the 8th, but I wont do that if I don't think she will be good to drive (she needs to be safe and just in need of a shake down to fix everything else)

I want her to make it to the meet :)

I will have to get some recent ones. Haven't made a project thread for the trac here since she hasn't quite hit 25 lol. The trac is going to start getting attention after I have the rolla driving and being enjoyed :)

Here are pics of the future snow beast. She was a part out victim :/ So I still have some part gathering to do. This is how I received her. (Pardon the links. Not in the mood to resize the 800x600 pics)

I like the ST185 and ST205, but there is something I love about the lines on those trac's. The 185's are sexy when done right. The 205 is the best looking, IMO, but wasn't available here so I keep it out of my mind lol.

I used to have a st185. Loved that car, It's the car that got me into cars and Toyotas. Also, There is a corolla wagon at pick'n'pull with the dual round headlights...

So, I have driven the car a bit and she still needs alot of work. Battery doesn't appear to be getting charged. Not sure if that is caused by the battery relocation or the Saturn alternator since I don't know if it works either. Also still need to try and tune her a bit and replace the windshield. Tried to take her to a meet today, but after 5 miles and a popped fuel line, I decided she needed to go back home and rest lol.

Well, here is the pics from the last bit of work.

Old headliner

Stripped

Well, she is officially road legal!!!!!! Have my historic tags and took her for a ghetto photo shoot to play around with my sisters new camera. Next step is to get the tuner studio upgraded for tuning the MS.

Here are the pics:

So, small update and random pics.

- Tuning is still getting better, but I hit a wall in the 4k range and 5k. Due to weather and time I haven't done too much driving. Plus my laptop wont stay charged long enough to get to a good road.
- I think my brake booster developed a leak. There is moisture on the frame and surrounding area's under the MC. Plus I am losing brake fluid.
- Still need to finish my door panels.
- The dash my friend glassed for me turned out well, but I had no patience to sand it since I want to redo the whole dash area. So it got a light sanding and a few coats of bed liner.
