autojumbled ST185 narrow body

New to GT4's but not Japanese cars. Been though Starlet GT Turbos and MR2s so figured I would give another Toyota a try out!
Picked up a 1990 ST185 narrow body from a mate. Roadworthy but needs a lot of TLC to bring it up to spec.

No rust underneath but all suspension components have surface rust so that will be a job for the winter when its laid up. Also got lacquer peel on pretty much every body panel!

Here she is when I got her last month....


and now after removing dodgy stickers and 17" wheels...


So far I've just been driving it in between tinkering with a few bits. I've so far removed a crappy FCD and manual boost controller. fixed the passenger window, replaced the boot lid struts among other things.
Next is fluid changes all round and bleed the clutch.
I'll leave all the big jobs for when the summer is over....

If the parts come up, the main things I want to do (aside from clean all components up and refresh bushes etc) is an ST205 brake swap and coilovers. Happy to hear from anyone that might have 2nd hand parts available to help me with this!
