Little brothers dream car

What’s up guys and gals , I’m new here and decided to throw my newest project up.
A little back story, I’ve always loved cars and everything related with them. I love working on them and bringing them back to life ,I have 3 jeeps and a Datsun 280zx. I have a soft spot for Japanese cars and so does my little brother.
This build is for him. Don’t know what made him want one so bad but for the past year or two he became obsessed with the mk2 Supra. He’s only thirteen but when I saw this one for sale a few hours away and for a rather good price I couldn’t sleep on it. Plan is to get it running and driving reliably by the time he gets his license.

So here’s the project.

Check all your ground points and replace if corroded or damaged. Battery to chassis, battery to engine block, cylinder head to firewall, engine harness to underside of intake plenum, transmission to chassis, are all grounds.

Where did you verify spark at? Coil, or spark plugs? You can have good spark out of the coil and still not get it to the cylinders if the dizzy cap or rotor are bad, or the distributor itself.

How did you verify fuel?

Also check all your relays under hood (EFI, main, STOP) and check the ignition fuse in driver's side kick panel. If they look old, replace them regardless. Fuses can be sneaky sometimes.
