So I moved this one into the garage at my moms house.   Since pink car is basically finished, and the white car has a new engine to go in, I figured it's time to focus on the rental car.    I have some parts to acquire then this off season will hopefully have lots of pink car drifting and black car wrenching!

I now have another unknown Trans for it so hopefully one works.  Car has a full drivetrain now.  Needs wiring and fuel and a seat.   Suspension is 85% there.  Nothing special but plenty good enough for a missile/practice car

Washed the car inside and out.  Lots of nasty in there. 

Compiling a list of parts needed and figuring out numbers to do what I said I would do with the pink car before I actually did what I did with the pink car.


It's like Deja Vu





This is how bad I want to door bang.  im building both cars lol

Spent a couple hours at my moms last night putting this thing under the knife.

Got the car two up in the front and pulled most of the suspension out.  Gonna sWap hubs onto my TRD/AGX struts.  Waiting on wheel bearings and bushings to come in.

 Picked up a another SR5 rear along with spare axles.  got tension rods and sway bars.  put in most of the front Prothane bushings over the weekend.  need to bring a puller to get the knuckles off so I can do the front control arms.  REALLY need hardware.


 parts order should get here this week and I can assemble the front struts/hubs.  next 20v comes out so I can further clearance the firewall and do new mounts and clean and prep the motor.

So I guess I'm back to doing something with this thing lol.

Picked up GTS fuel lines for it

Just ordered a fixed/manual Timing belt tensioner for the black top

Also ordered a Cusco engine/trans mount kit.

Firewall has been clearanced.

Power rack has been looped. 

I'm considering hosting a tech day once I have some ducks lined up.   Those who wrench, drive.

It'll run at some point lol.  There's a video on my youtube channel that is very current in this car, dubbed Thyia.

Motor mounts and tensioner arrived

Next on the list is a full spool for the sr5 rear ends

Also I need bolts.   So if anyone has a Toyota/ae86 bolt collection, I'll buy them from you.   


Kyle has stock knuckles so I can replace the bent one we swapped off Andrews UZE72.  Orrr I can send them to Julian and get sent some Heat Maker knuckles back.  We'll see

I need to pull the white car out of the garage for a month or two I think.

So I've pulled the black car into the middle of the garage and put the front in the air.

Bolted Up the GTS Front away bar.

Prothane bushings everywhere except Rack n Pinion.

Replaced the bent knuckle

Installed the Front Calipers and Braided Brake lines

Front Suspension has T3 camber plates, over AGX Adjustable Short Strokes and TRD 8k springs




Engine Bay is my next target.

Ended up skipping the engine Bay


But found the D-Max tails from Zeros car from when I put it into the wall....   they are now on the missile.

Also I put my old "setup" on the rear.  RS*R rear lowering springs with KYB GR2 shocks.


A lot of work to go, but there's a lot of free parts waiting in the shop.   By far this has been the most relaxed, most fun, build I've ever done
