looks good, Ryan

altho we need a new name. Van isle Supra's, or "VISA" as you've put it, doesnt work. this's going to take some creativity. so put on your thinking caps and fire away the suggestions.

I dont know what's wrong with it, or maybe the whole lock is broken......
what happened on my 88T was the wire ended up seized.. i basically had to lubricate it with wd40, and then finally, it gave way. To access all of this.. you do have to remove the entire back taillights. Then, take off the lock- which is just held up by one bolt.

For the most part, the trunk cable is straight. But when it reaches the lock portion, the cable is all curved.

perhaps bleed them one to two more times.. more chance to rid the trapped air

The master cylinder also needs time to adapt to the new brakes (if u've just got them replaced) Took me several days to have my pedal back to normal operation

woo, just painted my glove box and the plastic thing underneath it.. toby when you gonna make some door inserts?

went for a quick boot to tune in the S-AFC a little more. im actually getting somewhat usuable readings from the vf1 signal now. i did some major correction to get me into the right voltage, so far i only have like 1K Rpm to 3500'ish tuned in right. but christ. acceleration sure bumped up. i punched it and spun the back tires pretty intensely without even really trying.

boost.... gotta love it.

as for paint, you could go to somewhere like Lordo or JB and get paint mixed to match your car, and then for a smal. charge (liek $15 or something) they can put it into an aerosol can. if your going to do the inserts, i would do some other peices too, like teh bezel around the gauges, the liftup center console/armrest (fibergalss is, then paint it).

as for other interior mods, www.speedhut.com for some reverse indiglo gauges, and some blue corbeau CR1 seats. take out the back seat, put in a nice plywood trim panel to cover the metal, etc. also, do you still have those yellow pedals get some Momo aluminum ones. and dye your carpet black....

oh ya, and jeff sells custom colored shifter and ebrake boots, you could get soem nice white leather ones.... and then a nice fiberglass spare tire well sub box with 2 10s and a decent amp.... if you want decent 10s, A&B Sound is selling Alpine Type Es for $98 each (last years version of the Type R subs). 2 of those with 300-400 watts would be marvelous....
