    This car is my baby, or burden haven’t pin pointed it yet, but it started as a rusty old crusty 1979 mk1supra ( I got it a week after I totaled my first mk1, same color as well!) I gutted it entirely with a respirator and disinfected every surface, took sound deadining out, I had a lot of suspension parts for it off of my old one, but that’s kind of where this one started lol, I had purchased the jz on eBay about a year prior, so I had the ball rolling, picked up an r154 and some bits and “got in over my head” and did it, started in September took me till April the next year to move under its own power, I installed a fuel cell ran all -8 an braided stainless line, all an fittings I did the wiring very badly at first, nothing worked right , this was my first swap ever by the way , I took it all out put it on paper gave everything a relay and routed it in a proper way, to my surprise she fired up and been driving it for over a thousand miles no problems!
