Ha ha! I love it, the compromise. Guess I won't have to deal w/ that just yet being single. Did you ever think about silver or gold? My calipers are gold and I think it matches the Baltic Blue (given that the engine cover was also gold).
Silver would've been another option, less "subtle" perhaps.

We wanted a color other than the usual red, black, or silver but what color beyond those we couldn't quite agree on. I would have loved a dark blue to match Baltic but that seemed to be out of the question without getting something custom mixed up. Also, give me those 57CR's you have...

Far from the most awesome updates in any of the project threads here lately. wink.gif Just small, inexpensive easy stuff so far. The boost gauge was needed for quick reference at a glance and the wideband is a necessity. The speakers were needed as well but the head unit didn't cost very much. Your car has a single DIN in it? I could have sworn you have a double DIN. I just like the double DIN to be able to quickly see everything and change songs or adjust volume without having to put much thought into it, otherwise I probably wouldn't spend the money on them. I frequently miss the steering wheel volume adjustment in the GT4 although I do like the Momo steering wheel. I want an EBC to replace the MBC but we'll see how long it takes me to spend the money on that. laugh.gif

Sunday update!

Last weekend I picked up a new BEAMS harness from Aspen so this weekend I got it swapped into the car and moved the battery back up to the engine bay. Last summer I spent more time than I care to admit diagnosing the harness for a couple of different issues. First and foremost has been an ongoing issue where the ECU was pulling timing after the engine warmed up. I assumed knock sensor, ran a new wire external to the rest of the harness, tested all my connections, and never could find the issue. The second issue is that sometimes it acts as though the alternator isnít charging. A couple of years ago I had an alternator burn up and cooked the end of the wire so I had to cut and splice new wires, so presumably thatís the cause of this issue. Either way, thatís two pretty big issues in my harness that have been a thorn in my side so when Matt told me he had a harness available, I jumped on it. Plus itís nice to have the trunk space back.





I missed part of the battery tie down at the junkyard, so that sucks. Gotta get that fixed ASAP.


For the GT4, no big update. Finally got around to putting some Lexus door strikers, small and subtle but a nice touch.




Then I pulled the seats for a thorough vacuuming and steam cleaning, then I had some fabric and vinyl dye so I dyed the top of the back seats black again. Unfortunately theyíve gotten a little faded but it was a quick and easy fix. Then I tossed these seats back in it instead.



Got some free JDM money from the seats though!




Next weekend will be a thorough wash, clay bar, and polishing followed by ceramic coat.

I honestly donít know yet myself. The engine turns over and starts quicker with the new harness and battery back up front but all Iíve done is swap the harness in and burp the coolant where I had to disconnect the heater core hoses, then pulled the GT4 into the garage. First drive will be tomorrow.

Lame update incoming!

Today I replaced the fuel pump in the BEAMS. No idea yet if any change will be made but if it doesn’t, then this turd will stay slow forever. Getting pretty tired of messing with it. I won’t find out for a month or so if it’s made a difference, since I’m not allowed to drive any of the fun cars. frown.gif

Last weekend I did some paint correction and ceramic coating on the GT4. It’s not perfect but at least it’s got some protection!





Also bought some Redline 75W90NS for the trans but we haven’t swapped it out yet. That’s a job for the wife next weekend while I supervise since apparently I’m not allowed to turn wrenches for a while now either. (I did the fuel pump while she was grocery shopping. wink.gif )

But most importantly, we got a special delivery for the ‘Four.







Not the Gram Lights I wanted, but those are still on the to-do list. We just like these Enkeis more than the Lehrmeisters that came on the car.

It's also in my second favourite Celica colour, just behind Iris Pearl. I guess this happened sometime between January and March since it'd have just turned 25, guess will have to go back a few pages.

It came around by chance, certainly not intentionally. Right car, right price, right here in town. Happened back in December, perhaps the only fed legal ST205 before the 25 year rule hit. I'm not a fan of cars that didn't come in legally when it's my money on the line.

Lol it's actually lowered already, but the way it sat when I put it back on the ground doesn't look like it. No coilovers for the 'Four.

See above. wink.gif Nothing against any of the cars that were already here but I would never have bought this one if it wasn't here legally. I'm definitely not wealthy enough to risk a car getting crushed.

This one is like 08/94, if memory serves correctly. I bought Supra Turbo when Supra Turbo was cheaper, wouldnít buy one again at todayís prices. Especially not $175k or whatever one just sold for...

You have to get the Dink theme music to play now whenever you show up somewhere, and your vocabulary has to mostly consist of "Very Expensive" or "Whatever". laugh.gif

I don't understand Supra prices, then again last I saw manual V8 fourth gens were going up. I won't complain since I have one I need to sell for a Miata, but I don't think they're worth what they're going for either but at least it's a lot closer to reality than the Supra... You should cash in on the Supra hype right after the new one totally bombs and people want the MKIV even more.
