So,. I'm knee deep in wiring, as I turn an auto 95 ST into a manual 99 GT V6,. and over the weekend I went to my brothers to check on my "Winter Car", well it needs a few things.



So, next weekend, the 94 gets

1) New Radiator, it was sold with another project,
2) New battery,
3) New oil pan and intake gaskets, new fluids, and a serious cleaning,
4) Swap passengers fender and door, they were previously smashed,.
5) New clutch kit,. something about a clutch with 240k miles on it makes it not so good
6) I'm also thinking it needs the headers, and catless exhaust installed that are just sitting in the garage
7) Rear hatch supports,
8) Rear cargo shelf
9) New passenger side high beam headlight

It's more of a list of what I need to remember to do than an update for the masses.

It's simple, I change my mind all the time, and have been collecting the parts for a V6 swap,. now that I have all my parts, I've chosen the following

1) I have a 99 GT that is Black. that I drive daily, bone stock and staying this way at least until next year.
2) I have a 94 GT that is Red that I constantly change my mind on what to do with it, for now I'm getting it ready for winter driving.
3) I have a 95 ST that is going to get a auto to manual conversion, along with a V6 Swap the wiring is underway
4) I have a 99 GT in the weeds that only has glass left, not a lot of plans for this one it's totalled and going to the scrap yard at some point
5) I have an 87 Supra Turbo project, if I ever get done with my Celica projects I need to finish rebuilding the engine and install it

Curently, I'm working on the haness for the 95, however, next weekend I'm also working on making the 94 road worthy as it's been sitting for almost a year, and probably parking the 99 for winter, I want my daily driver (the 99) to stay nice, and the 94 is already at 240k miles, so if something bad happens in the snow, I still have a nice 99 for back and forth to work,. I drive 135 miles roundtrip everyday in Michigan so a lot of opportunities for stupid people to screw up your day.

Now, if I could quite my actual job, and just work on my projects, I could probably get something done..

From Project Red Dragon, to the Red Devil.

Last year, I let my nephew borrow my 99 GT Liftback, after his Solara went to hell. Well, after a few months, he had found a car, I say that loosely as he picked up a used KIA. Well fast forward, a year or so later, he's had a dead KIA with a blown head gasket for around 4 months. Well, I decided I would find him a car, so after scouring the internet, and looking at a dozen or so, I hadn't found anything as clean as the 94 that I parked four years ago when I picked up my 99. So, we went about pulling it out of the field.





We got it pulled up so we could start cleaning it out and checking the state of things. Still has a dab of oil, so new battery, and we turn the key to hear it fire right up.





From there, we got to work. I parked it because it needed a clutch, AC, and with 240k miles I wanted something with a few fewer for my then 160 mile daily commute. Now, after sitting for four years it needed a few more things.



Transmission pulled





Flywheel has been resurfaced, I forgot to get a pic, but it's beautiful. Door and fender were swapped, someone clipped me a few years ago.







While the trans was out and the car was in the air, we noticed that most of the hard lines were just garbage. So, back to my personal parts store,...





That car lives on in my 94 GT, soon my 95 ST 3SGTE, my 96, another 96 that I sold, plus my 99,. so I've gotten my moneys worth out of it!

The Alltrac runs like a beast, 18lbs of boost. It needs bodywork is what it needs. The other side is smashed.
