    Cheers guys, hopefully can get it out a bit in the summer. With the uncertainty of restrictions it's easier to stomach the 1.3 tax on the RX7 vs this with the risk of not getting to drive it at all!

        Nothing much to report on this couple small maintenance and refresh jobs.

        It was with Zenith getting lower shifter bushes done, spigot bearing, rear crank seal and a full service

        I also replaced the bonnet insulation with a new unit and fitted the genuine TRD front brace I bought nearly a year ago at this stage

        It's taxed at the minute so getting it out for a few spins as well

            Lovely and clean bay mate, only issue with putting the bonnet insulation back on is lack of turbo noises.

                  Two beauties.

                  Honda got so much right when they first designed the NSX, still looks so fresh and modern
                  despite it being nearly 30 years old.

                    Yep for sure. So sleek, majority of non car people don't know what it is when your out and about

                        • I was lucky enough to see both the Supra and NSX up close last weekend. Fantastic cars and great to see them out and about.

                            • Few small updates on this, I was supposed to take my GT86 out to Europe to some alpine passes but it wasn't ready in time!

                              So last minute (4 hours before ferry) had to take this with no shakedown or anything, luckily its a Toyota and everything went smoothly apart from a small power steering fluid weep.

                              But I've gone ahead and ordered alot of bits for it from Japan to keep on top of everything. Alot of these are neglected mechanically because they are 'bulletproof' and small niggly jobs just keep building up and it could easily cost 5-6k to get them mechanically 100% with the price of parts now!

                              I've ordered the following from Japan

                              -Front crank seal (slight oil leak from there)
                              -Cam seals
                              -Cam cover gaskets and associated hardware
                              -Sump sealer
                              -Valve stem seals
                              -Coolant pipes behind head
                              -Propshaft flexi coupler
                              -Propshaft carrier bearing

                              Steering rack is out to get rebuilt as well as that's where the weep is coming from.

                              New rear abs sensors fitted and used front ones, ABS was giving issues since the underneath restoration, I suspect one or more were damaged on removal.

                              All 4 calipers rebuilt, front left was slighty sticking.

                              All this should see it good for another while anyway. At this stage it has almost everything replaced or rebuilt bar the actual engine, gearbox and diff. I'll likely end up getting the gearbox done at some stage while parts are available as I don't see myself selling it and it'll deserve a refresh considering the rest of work gone into it.

                              • If you don't mind me asking where did you go in Europe Brian?
                                After all of that work the Supra will both feel and look like new.
                                Did you manage to hit any Autobahn stretches in it?

                                The LS400 would be a seriously good cruiser for cheap money.
