Chu,Chu said:im doing the the engine swap and in doing so i want to paint..mabey, and redo the interior. im really hoping to use the dash of an later model with up graded gauges and if possible still have the gauge lights changed, to blue.
You're talking about putting the dash from a MkIII into a MkII. To the best of my knowledge nobody has ever done this with any level of success. I mean, the dimensions will be different, and the wiring will not match up. It would take so much hacking and custom fabricating that I can't imagine anyone even trying to swap dashes between the two cars.Chu said:i have a 85, so the 86half -92 dash will not fit?? has any one done this?? what about the front emblem i cant stand the celica supra and the side peices that say celica supra how would you change that or cover it up i did see ones from a celiac that had a silver bird but i dont know what that bird means it would look alot better. Is there any way to get the blue print of the dash and messurement of my car and the later model so i can custom fit it Those peaces are called condoms?? no other name, it would be very weird to go in to a hardware store and ask for that. do alot of stores carry them
aight, the emblems.... the mkII is a life raft, the MKIII emblem is... hmmm.... say for the sake of argument, a 30ft sail boat. in other words, it's a wee bit larger than the MKII's. you'de have to custom fit those, (body shop or whatever)Chu said:what about the side peaces same? will they fit on my 85 if so who has a set??
Yes, the early 82 emblems will fit exaclty. there is no changes in dimention or mounting. However, finding someone to sell you a set of the emblems would more or less be impossible. They are a VERY rare item!Chu said:suprafiend said there are some emblems from the 82 or so that have just supra and the dragon no celica words thats what i want will it fit on my 85 or an 86 if so does any one have this emblem for sale and does the side peaces from the 82 have the same thing in the design??? mkII.5 correct me if im wrong mwebber if i did the engine swap couldnt that make my 85 considered as a mkII.5 or a mkIII do to the upgrades so why would it make a difference if i changed the dash to that or somethen customized??
