I'm in the process of doing this now - I'm buttoning things up this week and hopefully I can get it recharged with good ol' R12 this weekend or next.. What state is your AC currently in? was it taken out and put away or has it been in the car but just empty?

My A/C has been converted o the newest system and is fully charged. I am waiting on hints to the solution to making the compressor turn on with the 205 ecu in place. From what I have read, there is a good chance that might be known this week.

So I hit a picknpull for the first time today. Of course it was a bust. I have given up on these pull it yourself yards. I do think pullapart is far better organized. Its easier to find a car and get in and out. This place was a mad house. Anyhow, the time I waste at these places I might be better off just ordering the parts from online junk yards, or toyota. So That changes a chapter in my car building. I did look at the popup lights of a dodge stealth, there might be some ideas there in the way of making a low rise headlight.

I have also been kicking around a new set of wheels. I have been looking at the 350z 18x8.5 rear wheel for once I do my hub conversion. They are 33et, and would only be 1mm inset from what I have now. They are made by rays and look sort of like the gram light 57c. I think they might be a good option, I am just not sure if I want to go to 18s. I did always like the look of Rene's car with his, so I am considering it.

Right now, I am just waiting on some info on finishing my AC then I will start the ball rolling on the interior.

Track wheels.

Old PS I did of Rene's car. I think I had made the wheels larger, so this might give an idea of fitment. I sort of want to paint them gunmetal instead of the mercury silver though.

I'm surprised you're still doing the 5x114.3 conversion. I gave up on it after seeing all the wheel options that are out there for 5x100 patterns. :shrug:

Fill us in on your conversion progress. And, about Upull-its, it's been a while since I've sourced anything good for a Celica. I gave up long ago. :(

I still do not see a lot of wheels in the sizes I want in 5x100. I see a lot of KO wheels out there like Rota etc... that would work but I am trying to keep my wheel options in the 19lb and less category and in a style I like. Also, going with the rav4 spindle does also make it easier to do my BBK.

Not any time soon, but if I ever get new wheels I am going to consider it. I decided to prioritize my projects. Its hard to juggle the car and everything else in my life. Now A/C is the main focus. I may just stick with these wheels for a while. At least till I use these tires. They still only have about 400 miles on them.


This is the thread where solutions are being sought.

Things have been real stressful here so I am moving at a slow pace. Got to get a few things in my life in order, so other than work a lot has been on hold including my business.

I did just get in my new gauge pod. I need to decide how I will handle the back and wires of the gauges. This will hold my water temp and boost gauge. If I need another then I will put it into the key bezel like some have.

Image

My brake rotors also came in. I sprayed my old rav4 spindle with some PB blaster. Once I get the old rotors off I will put these on and get a test fit for my 205 calipers on the rav4 spindle and these new rotors.

My AC was next in line, but that might be off till the end of the month, so I will handle all the other little things before then. The car is dusty, so if its not raining tomorrow I will take it for a wash. I might start on the new radio soon too so I can put together the door cars and dash.

So it turns out I have the wrong brake rotors. I bought Martin's old rotors from his race car, but I think his are C5, and I was needing C4. So now I need to figure out what I want to do. I know I want to simplify this project. I might sell the rotors, or I could still use them and use wilwood calipers.

So the plan was to use vette rotors, rav4 spindle, and 205 calipers. Now I am not sure how I am going to approach this. I will likely just put everything back in their boxes and revisit this once I get some of the other stuff done.

Took the car out to wash it. I wanted to get the dust and sludge off of it. It drives good. Maybe tomorrow I will lower it again. I am now starting to debate a lip due to the stupid roads around here. There are a lot of drainage ruts around here. I need to take some measurements when I lower it and see how it pans out.

Damn she looks good!

Hope life calms down so you can get her squared away. You should be cruising her more now that she has a good paint job.

On a side note, the iphone game you made for school. Did you guys ever get sales numbers?

I didn't make one for school, but I made a few for work.

I don't have access to the sales numbers but last time I checked which was last year there were over 300,000 players on Archetype and made it into the app hall of fame. So I guess it did all right.

We are about to launch a new one. So stay tuned. I will hopefully drive the car around more. I need to get Mark to drive out here so we can put them next to each other.

Plan on it next week. I'm working now through the weekend and since the work days are 12.5hrs long.......sigh. I did wash and wax her yesterday though, so she is all shiny again. Monday through Thursday I am off next week, with free days on Mon and Wednesday since the wife works, so lets make that the plan. I've yet to actually get to drive her around yet though with the new clutch and then finally running again with the refurb'd harness. So expect a stressed out Mark when I make it over there lol.

Yeah next week works for me. My mom is coming in this weekend now. So anyone can suggest where to get the RC washer nozzle? The part does not come up at the dealer I get my jdm parts and I am not paying 20-30usd for rhd japan to ship them to me.

Are you talking about the windshield squirters for the hood? Heck I got mine at oreilys and they worked fine. Some folks I think said they had to put a needle in the port and bend them up a bit to avoid the diffuser on the hood, I didn't have to do that though.
