Alright, here's what going to happen: We're going to be installing a set of custom Daiyama Coilovers. These are one-off parts that a bunch of us MR2 guys commissioned and had made specially to fit these cars. They're set up to be fully adjustable from super stiff, to factory comfort. I'll also be lowering the car by at least 40mm in the process, and since this is not my daily driver and doesn't really need to have ground clearance, I might go even lower!

Also, I'm going to be changing the rear tail-light situation. Stock looks like this:

Now, the rear lights on these cars are okay... but I don't really dig the OEM flat rectangular panel look. SO, I'm going to be fabricating custom filler panels that will replace the taillights, and fit 4" round lights instead. Like the Ferrari 288:

I'll probably start with the tail-light mods first, 1st with CAD templates (ALA Binky), and then steel. Probably won't get to this until next week though. 

 

Oh, and also the wheels are potentially getting painted Bronze instead of the factory Silver. I'll wait on that until after the coilovers are done. So all together, some pretty epic mods that should take this car one step closer to the next level!

Car is getting some much needed upgrades in the shop. I'll post pics as the project commences. Needless to say, my Rambler is taking back seat to this car at the moment. I have lots of money in parts that need to get installed rather than sit in the closet...

Thanks, I was scarred of dropping it because I still need to pull around my busted Datsuns on dollies. So I could do drop leafs in the rear and shorter front coil overs from Summit and drop the whole thing a bit? Do I need the blocks and the leafs or just the leafs? Do I need a custom drive shaft too in order to prevent U-Joint failures?

 

Then put some air bags in the rear to keep it from throwing sparks when I weight it down. :rofl:

You'll need just drop leafs. They usually result in a 3-4" drop.
