Decided to start part 2. Part 1 got locked at my request, it was going no where. This time is final, and a tribute to my car...

This will mostly be a journal. Not a how to. No where else to keep records. You are welcome to ask questions. No 2gr info here, there is a separate thread...

This car has not been driven in 8 months, it has been used as a parts car, for the mr2, and the previous celica sold. Unfortunately, because of this, its getting new parts, or parts are getting blasted and painted.

The car currently is a sad vision, 7 years of use, last 3 of neglect...

few pics of current condition... ( no wipers, no knuckles, no seats, no steering, etc, etc, etc...)

DSCN1313


DSCN1308


DSCN1310


holes left from removing things..

DSCN1312


the knukcles ive got, are rusted....

DSCN1311


Most recently decided to pull all the wiring, for the cruise control. I will never use it so...

E3C0FF98


it was sent away

EED8DDA9


while i was there...

1FDA2065


then..

B483D95E


over the next few weeks will bring it back to life again.....

lol. i cant help it. Im working this week, but managed to put 2 hours in the car....

removed AC unit, and finished removing brown wire that feeds the cruise ecu at 16 pin.

DSCN1355


while i was there cleaned the a/c evaporator, and sprayed lysol....

DSCN1354


whipped out some flex tubing in various sizing, what is that? it looks like this...

DSCN1356


and then started to do the rewiring process, and halfway done there. I have to admit, its hard, but the results are great.

DSCN1357


i have some wiring upgrades to make to the other side, since there is no cruise control, now i have a stalk, and 4 empty slots at the clock spring. So I may replicate Daniels, radio controls...

wiring is a tedious process.

created a small harness of 5 wires...

DSCN1358


to use in the cruise control plug, to take advantage of the clockspring..

DSCN1359


looks now like this...

DSCN1360


then proceeded to rewire the harness again...

DSCN1363


and almost done for exception of the steering column...

DSCN1361


and here is my harness that comes from the cruise plug. it exits with the ac control plugs...

DSCN1362


dont know what ill use this for, maybe audio controls from the steering wheel. they are there as option...

and all this just took 5 hours, of soldering and taping...

thanks guys. I know its nothing to be proud, but i need to really clean this wires, and stuff i undid in the past. This is the last time i mess with my car....

today i finished the steering colum

DSCN1366


reinstalled the dash frame, and wired the amp wire on top of it to the center. i got tired of hitting it...

DSCN1367


im doing jdm fenders, so i figured i had to mess with this...

DSCN1368


all said and done.. Relocated the amp wire and tucked it under the fender, rewrapped the harness, after i had it all a mess. and it looks like this...

DSCN1370


moving onto the dash.., nothing too serious, just need to professinally tuck the harnesses for the jdm power mirros. those are hanging on the sides....

DSCN1371


once i install the drive by wire pedal, and plug some holes, i will be reinstalling the dash again, for it never to come out.... (crosses fingers) ....

well not that many, since working on the swap delayed me a lot. little here and there.

Since the FRS seats dont fit, got a steamer finally to steam the foam and rejuvenate it, and wrap the oem seats in leather...

DSCN1364


however, the stupid leather upper covers dont fit, they have somehow shrunk....

made a custom line for low pressure power steering. more info on the swap...

DSCN1469



cleaned the subframe

DSCN1463


and painted it...

DSCN1473


painted the power steering rack.

DSCN1464


and trying to hack some enlinks for the front.

DSCN1472


cant do the engine wiring because i dont have a spcific plug, and it sucks.. so im just doing bits here and there..
