New TRD sway bars in red







Energy Suspension greaseable sway bar brackets with 90 degree zerks + red zerk caps, as well as red polyurethane bushings (As opposed to the black that Toyota supplies)







Front installed












Rear installed. New bolts on the KW's.

















Took this time to install the targa seal against the windshield header, plus the front section of headliner, dome light, and sun visors.










Still keeping the plastic on the new A pillar trim until she's ready to drive










With coilovers and sway bars installed, the suspension is just about complete. The car is ready to sit on its wheels for the first time since November of 2018.














Coilovers at their lowest setting, just for ease of install. Will have to come up quite a bit for the engine to go in.







The front wheels poke out quite a bit with the 25mm spacers that were run with the stock TT wheels. There's some space between the spoke and caliper for the wheel to come in a bit.









My friend Harman, a machinist, brought over his gauge block set to do a front wheel clearance check. There is about 14mm of space between spoke and caliper. The current spacer is a 25mm, going to drop it down to 12mm with extended ARP studs to see what can be accomplished. May have to go down to a narrower front tire should the fender clearance still be an issue.














Another note - the external hex lug nuts have been swapped for internal hex. I'm going to have the new ARP studs shortened about 10mm to allow for the use of internal hex lugs all around. I don't like the idea of a socket scratching up the wheel.

With the car on the ground, it was finally time to get it turned around. Installation of the doors requires ample space to swing the door fully open. The passenger side door is next.






The driver seat









It was at night, so photos are limited, but it was a sight to behold. Seeing the car outside of the garage was refreshing.

















Almost looks like it's a complete car...










Can't help but take pics of it whenever I get home... by the light of my 4Runner lol







Ready for the passenger side door!

The everlasting struggle of garage photography...











Justin's back to help hang one of the last body panels to go on.












After a quick wipedown












Passenger mirror is on


















Door is assembled with new screw grommets and belt molding. The glass is just waiting for when the car has power.
















I am getting major goosebumps... Soon she will return to the streets.












I'm going to contact a friend in the industry to hopefully get a new set of rotors and pads front and rear. I'm also going to try to find a good powder coating source to redo the OEM TT calipers in red.








Here the car sits, waiting for extended studs and new brakes. Hubs are cleaned up and will be shot with SEM Trim Black before the new studs go in. This way, the center hole on the Enkei wheels will show a black hub instead of an ugly rusted hub.


The new 12mm hubcentric spacer fits really well, but the stud length will not allow for any lug engagement. Holding the wheel against the spacer/hub by hand, it freely rotates without caliper interference. It has the caliper clearance of a German car (AKA - 1mm or so, super close!)



The front KW's are now adjusted to about 75mm of thread between the bottom of the perch and bottom thread. Pics of that will come after the studs arrive and I can put the car down on it's own wheels again.







Thanks for your time.

Great progress!! I remember putting mine back together after paint. It was very enjoyable and extremely satisfying when she was back on the road!

Can't wait for you to take the maiden voyage!

By the way - 285's up front and 315's in the rear.

Awesome project Supra!!! I'm doing a similar build and I'm in need of body and paint work.

Do you think your auto body guy would take on a similar project? I have everything stripped from interior to motor. You can see my project on Supraforums.

My pursuit to a "Lexus" feel...the MKIV edition | Supra Forums

Please PM me if he's able. Thanks man.
