My MKIV Build....From nothing To almost Something (Pics Coming Daily 56K Die)

So I bought A Supra .....Kinda

Well I have been on the Supra Forums for a while now and I’ve been reading a lot build threads, I came to the realization that quite a few members that are Supra Owners built there cars from nothing to something really special....

At first when i picked up my MKIV i was really embarassed at that condition it was in so never posted any pictures of it, but after reading, and speaking with a lot of members I have to come to the conclusion that my car is in the same state that a lot of people started out at... In my quest to restore this machine i have come across a great deal of members locally and across the country that have helped me to understand my car and sold/traded parts to get this thing on the road.......eventually

here is a time line from when i purchased my car in Jan 2010 up until now ...Enjoy :)

heres a small Video Until I post All the Pics!!!!

Looking good man! I think I met you at the Lexus picnic in Orlando last month. I was with Steve in the silver SC. I think he sold you an Eclipse back in the day.

I really cant wait to see how this turns out! I know the kid who had it before you and it was the biggest train wreck. Mine started out just like that though.

Looks good, Kris. Hopefully we can get both of our cars back on the road at the same time. Yours is a lot further along than mine though!
