Those foglights look great! Have you figured out how to mount them yet?

Picked up some 14x7 Vectors for $150, need to replace the 225 tires for some in 185. Also looking at upgrading the headlights with Hellas.

New Hella H4 headlights, removed the aftermarket horn and rewired the stock horns. Had a new exhaust system installed since the old one fell apart.

If you don't mind me asking, why did you remove the Hella horn in favor of the stock ones? I've been thinking of trading out my stock horns for Hellas as my stock ones are relatively quiet (In comparison to horns on newer cars).

The aftermarket horn was JC Whitney type, never sounded like it was working so it went bye-bye. I've have looked at some of the different Hella replacements or even the horn from my dad's Roadrunner.

I've been having a problem with the idle speed being high, I was told to check my vacuum lines and thought would it be better to go through and just replace them all?

The idle problem ended up being the connection to the automatic choke, still replaced a number of vacuum lines.

What are some options for replacement front seats?

S13 buckets are probably one of the cheapest ways to go while giving you a great seat to use harnesses on and not look too out of place in an old car.

They also have pretty decent support too :D


Like these.

If not, I would go with OEM celica GTS zzt230 seats.

Why don't you go with an air horn? They are quite popular with zokusha style cars.

His car having the dreaded "cat hump" makes swapping in newer OEM seats quite difficult, though.

El Destructo, how tall are you?

I'd like to keep it close to stock or period correct, the seats that the previous owner put me at a point where I've scrunch down and I'd like to sit low. I've seen Porsche 928 seats used and wondering if seats from an S30 would work without the back being too tall.

I'm 5'11".
