About to start this same process. How did this all turn out. Which tie rod ends did you go with?
Tie rod ends were from driftmotion. I highly reccomend driftmotion for your MK3 parts needs, they probably have the thing you need. Look there first.

Car sitting under a cover somewhere else. No room at new house for the white 91 :(

boxes of parts inside... I blew the motor I guess. I've let the tag lapse and the car is liability insured.

I've bought a half million dollar home and I'm in the process of selling a > half million dollar home. I've downsized my garage from 2300 sq. feet of detached garage to 0 ft. of attached garage as far as I care. The taxman cometh and I prepare for that.

Cars are on hold until I build a shop. @Chocolate Cowboy tryin hard to source me a 7M tho, so I got that going for me.

Even if you find me one the problem I have currently is my tools, my 2z motor, my engine hoist - all that stuff is still at my old place because I have no place to put it. This was a strategic move to liquidate a lake house and get a new house and make some money off of it for the kids.

It's still in progress and like you said the market is nuts. Currently about 60 days deep in a plan to set my kids aside some money for college.
edit: AND keep my cars too

Should the front right driver’s side little black grille have a badge? There’s two holes there for a badge but I gots no badge there?
I’m starting to think this car has been resprayed, there’s little hints and overspray here and there.
My understanding is that in 91-92 Models. The TOYOTA emblem in the front grille was factory nixed due to rebranding and the emergence of the new T toyota symbol. And the mounting holes still are there because why create a new mould for a part thats about to retire? I read this somewhere and it made sense to me anyway.

You are correct. You are going through this thread chronologically as I learned about the car also. Eventually I got to the "knowledge level" that a 91 doesn't have the logo, just like you said.

@Captain the one with the elbow looks like it will be fine, @Supra_Spooler was seeing if he could just wrap his up in bubble wrap and slap a label on it but haven’t heard from him in a bit. What I have now has all been cat-gutted and straight pipe welded all the way back.

Noted on the screws, the oval heads are just what I have laying around.
I’ll be supppppeeeerrr excited about any potential down pipe donations!

To solve the trunk latch cable issue, the hack I used was to add like 3-4 small zip ties, fully zipped to the head, over the cable. This took out the slack or “cable stretch” and every still is working for me 3 yrs later. PS, First time on this thread and I’m in deep, lol. Sorry if my responses are outdated and your issue was solved here, Im still on page 4 or 5 of 38. Can’t wait to keep going, and I dont want to jump to the end just yet , too much valuable information in this thread. Thank You! 😎 JP
