Thanks guys! Yeah, it was on sunday

I put the 89+ wing on my car on the weekend while I was all hung over and drilled holes in the wrong spots and now I got holes in my car and the side peices line up like poop... oh and I also dropped them both and took quarter sized dents out of the brand new paint on both of them.
It was pretty funny now when I look back on it. I shouldn't have trusted my judgement in being able to line things up properly lol!!

Oh well, I guess it's time to fill a bunch of holes and come down there and start painting again. Maybe I'll try again on the side peices too haha.

Never work on your car when you're drunk or hung over, nothing good can come from it.

Happy birthday Reuben.

Anyone talk to Bob lately? I haven't been able to get ahold of him. I don't see him on msn much, and haven't got a reply about the email I sent him.

I guess I got the names mixed up. (Ryan, Matt... Same thing)

Toby - What color are the rims going to be?

Quick question, is there much advantage to running a front strut bar across the engine bay or is it mainly cosmetics for under the hood?

Hey Toby, take pictures of the wheels when they are done. I'm considering fixing the curbage on mine then having them done as well.

Matt, Bob's bars are suspension techniques. Me and others can vouch for how good they are and how much difference they make. It was like night and day - you will be able to tell once you have the bars out and compare them side by side. The stock ones are hollow!!

Shane - I don't think there is much advantage at all to have a front strut bar in our cars. Some people have reported an improvement... but in our cars the struts are not really struts, they are only for absorbing shock. Not an integral part of the suspension... However I imagine it would still help a little but I can't see the improvement really being noticeable except another shiny peice under the hood

wheels look wicked i also got JB to colormatch some paint for the center caps. ill post some pics up later in the week. the intake is getting welded on thursday, then the fun process of designing and building the plenum begins.

wheels are gunmetal. after talking to the guy, i might get my valvecovers done too, he said it would be around $30 for both + sandblasting. maybe some other misc parts... the gunmetal looks soooo wicked, huge amount of metallic in it, looks great in the sun.

Oi

So I'll be comming back from Australia with a hefty Tax return (5g's...) Wondering if you guys know of any Supra's for sale on the island, or van. ( I know there is buysell...just looking around) Prefer a '89, doesn't really matter tho, 5spd. Turbo or N/A is fine. Prefer Hardtop.
Anyway, lemme know if you hear anything. And then Ryan, you can teach me allll over again, hah.
