all up and running again, the coolant problem was a piece of solder on the rad where the cap seals, now thats ridiculous. Changed out my ball bushings, made a ghetto tool to remove them and press them in, drives much better. Need to get the rest of the bushings, need an alignment and some of them need to be torched to free up the bolts.

Bahhhh, I'm wanting a new DD, and I'm leaning towards another Supra. I'm sick and tired of driving around my broken ass piece of shit BMW with 400,000kms, mad electrical gremlins, and power windows that are operated by a hex keys...

I want this one, since it's the closest to my old supra... http://www.usedvictoria.com/classified-ad/9161691



By the way, anybody need any power window regulators? I've got a pair for MK3's sitting in my garage, that obviously won't fit my 300ZX, nor my shit ass bimmer.

Not by a long shot

I've spent about the same amount of money on my valvetrain, as he has on his entire mods list.
