CLIFFS: look at the pictures and tell me if you see anything wrong



so i decided friday that i'd start to do some much-needed maintenance on the supra, i figured i'd start with the thermostat, coolant and oil, long story short, my dad wasn't home much this weekend and i couldn't borrow tools from him today

i jack the car up, come to see that the jackstands won't go under the frame because the jack only goes so high, so i decide i'll leave it and try my best to work around it

so i scooch myself under the car to see this big thing of plastic (i'm a retard and don't know what it's called) blocking the engine, so i take out my trusty socket set, pull out the smallest one, it's too small, so i take out the next biggest size, and it was too big, so i figured i'd just take some pictures of the underside of the car and see what you guys think, because while i know general things about cars, the only time i've worked on a car was to learn to do brakes (but i did check online to see how to do oil and coolant)

:crazy: thats a lot of rust under that baby!! That big peice of plastic is just a big guard to keep road debris out of the engine bay. It comes right off. Most MKIII's dont even have that anymore.

Rusty camber bolts, that will be fun.

ok normally I wouldnt give a shit, but damn looking at that jack makes me afraid lol. Get together $100 and go to harbor freight. Pick up the following:

I know it says retail is 54.99, but I just picked up a second one last weekend on sale for 39.95.

Also, pick up a pair or two of these:

http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=38846

You can get a pair on sale for around 18 bucks. So get buy a real floor jack and 4 real 3 ton jack stands for under 100 bucks. Its a wise investment considering your average MKIII weighs around 3400 lbs. Supra + gravity > you.
