Thanks guys :D , I appreciate all the kind words. Next we moved on to black-out a few parts:

My thought here was to have the supporting brackets and hood latch hidden:

Image

Image

Image

Image

This little touch was purely my painters' idea, and it has grown on me quite a bit:
Image

Image

Image

Then there was all new hardware from Toyota:
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Not all the hardware was purchased new because quite a few parts have been discontinued. I encountered this on several parts along the way. One of which was the CS/RC hood vent that my painter lost in the shuffle of transporting parts. I was lucky enough to purchase the final part located in the US:

Now we moved to reassembly, and the big reveal:

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Here are the Euro spec folding mirrors and the LHD glass I purchased from Great Britain:
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Another part that was lost was the fuel filler door. I thought it was funny that the only one I could find was super red:
Image

Image

Image

Here is the new rear hatch glass installed, this is also a discontinued part:
Image

Image

Image

Here is a picture taken outside, I will post more pics once the color sanding is done:

Thanks for following Project Phoenix guys!!

Looks amazing, love the colour. Is it Toyota 040 white or have you gone for a different shade? Great thread, Looking forward to more updates :)

Thanks for all the kinds words guys, it really means a lot. The color is custom, it's more of a pure white.

This is absolutely stunning- to see an ST185 in such rough shape brought back to new condition brings a tear to my eye! You are a hero in my book, sir! :D
You are a child of the universe.
No less than the trees and the stars, you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
