An 82, 83 and 3 84 P-types.
Well, it's been a long damned time since this OG spent much time here (thanks Farcebook) and almost as long since I did( anything significant with a MK2, but the time has come.
Back in 2010, my prized 2P4 MK2, which I bought in 1986, was badly damaged in the blaze that claimed my shop.
I've had a difficult time even looking at the car, remembering all the awesome history I had with it doing the IASCA car audio circuit and the various iterations of ICE it went through over the course of the early 90s when I was in that industry, and all the meets I attended which built a network of what have turned out to be great friends.
FF to now, after amassing parts and trying to put the time and money together so that all 3 coincided, I finally committed to start the restoration.
I spent some months going through my ridiculous inventory of parts, picking the cream of the crop and have nearly the whole car in boxes at this point, give or take a few bits that I will obtain when I'm ready for them.
I've always been more focussed on restoring than modifying Supras, unless the customer requested it, and I think I can make the car almost as nice as it was in 2010 again.
I'm in the 10th hour now, preparing it for the body shop, and found that the driver door I had set aside is actually damaged, and the hatch is rusted inside, so I'm on the hunt to replace those in the next month or so.
The damage was pretty significant, with the driver side taking the brunt of the flames and burning through the roof as well, but the majority of the damage was water and smoke related actually, so I'm thankful that I have an intact chassis to rebuild. It could have been worse....
I'll be adding pics of the resto as I go along, and looking for some parts as I need them, but since this is such an awesome group, I'm sure it won't take much to see this project through to fruition.
(I'm tempted to JZ it, but still on the fence there....)
