Yeah, I use to live out in Humble, TX for a while. Good times, nice weather.

Terrible drainage in the area though. My last car was flooded over in Montrose, but they "fixed" it (it was a 5k car) and it wasn't totalled or branded. $3200 in damage, but I opted to take 0 deductible over having the paint fixed.

They've updated the draining system the last couple of years, so places that used to flood hasn't flooded recently. It's gotten better, but some places still do flood.

We've had great boost weather the last couple of days, but sadly, I was working. :\

The goal for the car is to eventually to make it to MSR and COTA for some laps.

That sounds ultra fun. Good luck! I drove past COTA, place is beautiful.

So umm.. yeah. This was the state of the interior as I was finally installing the ECU back into its home.



Got the ECU in and it's lookin' pretty and also wrapped up the interior. Also swapped the spots for the boost gauge and wideband because the boost gauge's body was long enough to where I could use electrical tape to wrap it to fit snug whereas the wideband was too thin and needed the bracket to hold it in place and spot 1 on the pod had room to fit.

I just need to pick up a new radio once this project is finished.




Got what i hope is all of my heater hoses sorted out. I just need to go back with some worm clamps to hold down the hoses and we should be set. Also tossed on the strut brace for ****s and giggles, but to also have a spot to mount my FPR.




Next up will be finishing up the fuel system with new lines and probably the vacuum lines.

so about that lockdown......

Buddy of mine is taking it seriously, so he's not at his shop for the time being and is staying home.

In the mean time, I'm still considered an "EsSEnTIal" worker, so I decided to order some parts for the Supra in the mean time and might fill in some time gap in this thread with that update. Parts should be here by the end of the week, if not early next week while I'm out of town for work. The wheels I ordered for the Celica are in a shipping container somewhere on a boat on its way to California....or so it has been for the last month according to Vivid Racing and should be here sometime "soon". At this rate, they'll probably be here by the time the wheels I ordered for the Supra will be here. :\
