First pics of my '90 st185

Postby white91 » Thu Apr 29, 2010 12:40 am

Hello. I never really made an introduction but I have always lurked even before I bought my st185. I used to have a t3/to4e '91 MR2T and a '01 MR2 Spyder so I am pretty familiar with older Toyotas. I've had it for about 5 months now and it's finally somewhat picture worthy. I've had to fix alot on it since I bought it in such bad shape. The gauge cluster says 93,000 miles, however, the speedo hasn't worked since 2000. (I replaced the middle cable and it worked for 1500 miles then stopped working again :( )

Pretty much still stock. It just has TRD struts and springs, taillights from a 92 JDM GT-four, and OZ Route wheels. 15x7 ET40. Waiting on spacers for the rear.
My near-future plans are an RC swap and to fix rust. The driver's side swaybar bracket is completely rusted off of the body... Anyway, here are pics!

P.S. I am aware the rear turbo badge is in the wrong spot, haha

Sorry about the terrible iPhone pics.. I realized my digicam was broken after I washed/waxed it but couldn't waste the opportunity for pics. :)

OEM badging (or none at all) + spacers will make it awesome. Super clean car man! 8)

Thanks alot for the comments guys. The wheels are a little rough. I plan on getting them powdercoated over the winter with new decals and clear coat.

Yea, kinda pricey but I was on a time budget and couldn't find any used. I got the aluminum bumper beam also. It should be running (hopefully) tomorrow or sunday.

I don't have my hood back on quite yet but I believe you just have to remove the rubber scoop bellow that seals to the stock ATA IC for it to fit properly. I'll let you know when I get that far.
