well its been a long wait, but i finely got to cleaning around her and couldnt stand it. so i started working on it. after getting some of the shit out of it and stripped the engine bay some. started with cutting the core support and welding it over some (i shouldnt weld), to fit wider 80-82 radiator and condenser. that went well. so much better then the crap way it was in before striped rear interior. got rear end ready to pull, up on blocks, every thing off but the spring bolts (ran out of day) started looking at the stock wiring to see what im keeping to incorporate my wires into. try to get pics loaded today. more comming and some about the MR2 also see ya crash_x
its a start. more on the way crash_x

so this is some of the stock harness that i opened take out what i dont need and get ready to lay my own wires for the ton of crap that mostly isnt really needed. i just like to go over board on things
ok, so its been a rear end couple of days. pulled 2, hung one back in (to roll it later). other needs cleaning and all that crap. dont seem like much, but the 1 going in is from a early-mid 70s corona. 1 inch wider then the TE51 axles. i have found that axles from the early toy vans with 4 lug are the same bearings, seals and splines as mine. just have to cut off some. but that is under another place in here some where.
yep, those arnt oem springs ether i have done some weird shit with them. but i will get to that later
so, nothing like rippin the ass out of the old girl!!! but she has always liked it rough
thats 800.000 miles of hard ass. i havent had the rear out in at least 500.000 miles
Welcome all. Please take a monent and say some thing. what would make this a better site?
