Hey thanks bro...I think I'm gonna drive it for a while. I really like the contrast of the black on the engine lid. But I see your point...I'm not going to do it on the next car because some people love it or hate it.Hey Mike, honestly you need to post it up on BAT as a restored classic Japanese sports car.
I know what you mean about the STD brand clutch they’re known for weak pressure plate.
Replace with south bend stage 2 which is essentially made by Exedy.
You rarely even see any mr2 restored like this with powder coated and painted parts throughout for corrosion protection plus fresh quality paint, engine trans, suspension brakes steering so that definitely adds to the value as it’s a classic collectible now.
I’m guessing you can get $15k out of this one to right buyer
Make sure to include documented restoration pics vids receipts records like that to entice interested buyers
Post it on eBay, Facebook groups, BAT
For some reason the black painted engine lid vents bother me don’t know I guess because if they’re painted red like rest of the car it just flows smoothly doesn’t distract your attention.
You think you might get to paint the other Pittsburgh red mr2 before this winter?
I've heard this a thousand times, it's getting different than it ever has been before K swaps are becoming easier and more popular. Thank you boostedbois. My car will always be 3s powered but I always welcome more attention towards these cars.Unfortunately, I don't see any sort of profit for manufacturers creating new OEM parts for a niche product that didn't even sell well when these cars were new. Piled on top of that, even Toyota reps know our notorious cheap-ass reputation for spending as little as possible on the car. Mike is in the minority.
Hell yea...I love the attention on our cars! But the current fastest MR2 in the world is no a K swap. Its a 5S/3SGTE !I've heard this a thousand times, it's getting different than it ever has been before K swaps are becoming easier and more popular. Thank you boostedbois. My car will always be 3s powered but I always welcome more attention towards these cars.
Every time someone wishes for new OEM parts, you'll hear it a thousand more times. I'll bet you a nickel it won't happen....I've heard this a thousand times...
