Preparing for chasis restoration, there is some spaces with rust but not many.
Mounting for 7gen celica front seats.
Internal security frame - it was some special story, this was the first I even have for this car. Coleges said me :"..all people buy the car and after this they made modifications, buy frames, rims etc.. but you have bought frame at first, and after this you build the car all around the frame.. " .) It is originally designed for TA40coupe.
Front subframe modification for swapping the 1UZFE engine
1UZFE mountings and engine putted in the car.
Now we are working on transmission - we will use the toyota w58 tranny ( we have 3 pieces of this tranny ). Im preparing wiring for standalone ECU IMFSoft. We are now waiting for 1UZ to w58 tranny adapter - just paid to Xcessive manufacturing and waiting for then.
