    I am also glad to see that you and your Dad are not only bonding, but doing it with a MKII Supra.

    The trim that goes between the fender flares and the body is available from KBox Engineering, who also carry a set of all the gaskets for the tail lights and side marker lights:

    Also check out Rock Auto.

    I am replacing all side trim on my '84. I may have a couple of extra pieces, as well as a used set. Grandson is visiting this week, so no time for the car, but next week I will lay out all the parts that I plan to use and let you know what I can part with.

    I am running a JVC aftermarket HD reciever/GPS unit. I did not use the bezel that came with the install kit from Crutchfield. Without it the receiver fits just inside the opening without having to do any trimming. Only problem is that it is about a half inch deeper than the original, and hits the servo for the auto A/C, so does not fit flush with the opening. It has black trim around the front, so looks OK. And yes, it does get somewhat in the way of opening the ash tray cover. I don't smoke, and only use the tray as a place to store the lock for my wheels, so I don't really care about that. The previous aftermarket unit I had installed had a big On/Off button on the bottom, and opening the ash tray would hit the button and turn it off. This one is on whenever the ignition is on, and so no problem.

    Don't listen to those who say you should not spend more that the market value of the car. First, you are increasing the value as you make improvements. Second, at least to me, these cars are worth it. I have spent probably more that a car with 187,000 miles on it would be worth to most people, but I don't plan to sell it, so I don't care. I have had an all new interior done in leather, new carpet, a bare-metal re-spray, as well as having a few rust issues taken care of.

    Good luck to you and your dad.

    Bob

    Thumbs up Installed Factory Radio and OEM Headlight Whiskers

    Got to install the OEM radio and headlight whiskers this weekend. The radio came in from a fellow forum member for $55 or around that. Very pleased, everything works on it. Blew a fuse installing somehow even with the car battery disconnected.
    Whiskers i found on amayama.com for $107 shipped, took about 2-3 weeks to arrive.
    Overall it was a great weekend.
