Its -12AN Aeroquip push-loc hose. It comes in black or blue. Actually, that reminds me that I should probably replace that hose in the near future... After around 8 years now (two different engine bays), it is starting to crack a bit around the outside. I'll probably go black when I replace it.

I am not looking to do the front conversion you did, I hate to say it but I think the car looked a lot cleaner when you first got it. The bumper would be fine if it were painted to match. I guess the other stuff is up to your taste. I have been looking at pictures of the GLI and GXI and they have a really nice looking rear valance piece(s) we never got, any idea where I could source one? I would also like a GLi or GXi badge for the rear but I cannot even find that. lol It also looks like they had some sort of stock side skirts also...
The spoiler will definitely go on at some point. I don't want to do that before its painted though - I don't want to deal with mounting it a second time. The whole front end (including the hood) will get painted at some point. It should tie it together much better than it currently is. I pretty much need to run the JDM bumper to get any airflow to the intercooler, so it has to stay.

I'm not sure if the Euro/Aussie/JDM rear valence pieces would fit - the F/R bumpers are different in countries that didn't have the 5-mph bumper rules.

As for where I got the parts - almost all of them were bought from other guys that imported them and never installed them... I have been on the Camry forums collected parts for 15+ years now.

There was a group-buy done around maybe 2001 for a set of 10... only 6 got made and the company that did them went out of business... I got the hood used from the guy that organized the group-buy years later. Not sure what happened to the rest of them.

Copy that. I've looked at DIY and shop options, they're all pretty pricey in small, or well, any quantity. The stock hood is so darn heavy though (there's aluminum, not without its own cost if less than CF).

Thank you photobucket!! All the pics in the thread have been updated.

Lots of changes recently in life. A new baby will do that!

The Alltrac has mostly been sitting quietly under a cover for nearly the last year. Did some maintenance, got the clutch clevis welded up:

Before, with visible wear from internal rubber disintegrating:

And all welded up:

I have been contemplating selling the Alltrac... But I don't know if anybody else would appreciate it like I do. I have a '99 4Runner now that has been 4WD swapped. It is begging for a 2jz swap now. Maybe the Alltrac goes back to daily driver status for that project. :D

I've noticed this. . I would suggest Flickr in the future if PB is bad about doing this.

After finding this thread today, I read the entire thing and watched every video, looked at every photo. This car is so rad!

I saw in your last post that you mentioned thinking about selling the All Trac. Have those thoughts evolved at on in the past 2 years or is she still sitting on a cover?!? I ask because if you were still having those thoughts, I would be a serious interested buyer with a massive appreciation for what you have done with this car and I'm even your neighbor in El Sereno.

I really want the "fun" version of the 1990 Camry DX I've had as my daily driver for the past 6-7 years. I love this thing still has the factory cassette deck in it too!

I still have the car and have been driving it about 50/50 shared with the 4Runner. Most recently just replaced the clutch master and slave cylinders... used the ST185 master made by Aisin, hoping it will last longer than the last two did (parts store crap). It is almost approaching time to do the timing belt service! I've put nearly 50k miles on the engine since I got it (started its US life in a FWD Camry).

Image

Since that last major post, we we had twins (about 3 months ago) - so once again quite busy with 'other' life things. Heck, the clutch master went bad 3 weeks after the twins were born and it took 10 weeks to find time to replace it! It is back up and running and I'm trying to track down a rattle on the passenger side that has been driving me crazy for a couple years. It is either at the base of the b-pillar or in the rear door... I've even sat in the back seat with panels off and I still can't track it down. It is a bit sad to see the paint and other exterior bits get sun blasted, but otherwise the car is still in great shape and I do drive it when I can.

I suppose I would still consider selling the car - it is hard to imagine finding somebody willing to pay what it is worth to me. Also, someone willing to put up with all the foibles of a 30 year old 'performance' car. I haven't followed Alltrac (Celica) prices recently to see how those are going... who knows.

I'm no psychologist but these sound like two very similar ways of saying you're not quite ready to part with the car. :D

I think you'll continue to enjoy it and maybe one day it will show up here for sale and then we'll all know you're serious about selling it! I'll continue to follow along with this thread as it's always cool to watch such a detailed documentation of any kind of project, car or otherwise.

Cheers!

Probably! It is a challenge to keep up on all the little items with the car these days - I bought the car when I was single and renting, now have a wife, house, 3 kids, etc. 99% of my driving is commute or with the family, so it doesn't really get used for what it was built for. It still works as a daily driver though, which is nice.

Just passed over 200k miles (about 50-60k since the ST205 swap)... Time for a major service!

The plan:
Timing belt / water pump / etc (all OEM parts)
Accessory belts
Re-build oil filter relocation setup
Re-poly torque motor mounts
Change rear diff mounts to poly to reduce NVH
Replace rear lateral link pillow balls (new OEM parts)
Oil change
Brake fluid change
PS fluid change
Trans fluid change

All the timing belt work is just in time - there is a new oil leak on the motor that looks like a cam seal issue that started since the last oil change. I'll see the details when I tear into the timing belt change. There's also a fairly new clunk in the rear end. It is either swaybar end links or the lateral link pillow balls - hopefully it is obvious when I tear into the rear end.

Working *very slowly* on this. Timing belt work is in progress now. Have it all torn apart, ready for cleaning and new parts. Here's the carnage:

Leaking: PCV valve grommet, intake and exhaust cam seals, maybe crank seal and AC o-rings at the compressor.

I'm pretty sure I have all the OEM cam/crank seals in my new-parts box, I just have to find them. AC is more disappointing - I still have R12 in there. I'll have to find somebody who can evacuate it, then I'll be getting new o-rings and dryer and a re-fill. I'd like to keep R12 if possible...

I only get 1 hour here or there to work on it, so progress has been slow (took more than a month off just due to weather and smoke recently).

That smoke and weather have been such a killer the past month around here and it just started coming back the past few days after a little break. Makes it nearly impossible to do anything anywhere that isn't fully climate controlled.

Look forward to continuing watching this car evolve!
