Last weekend the team picked up a parts/donor car for the Toyota. We were able to score a complete vehicle with a damaged transmission for $300 and this will give us an un-bent front suspension subframe, pristine exhaust Y pipe and quite a few other spares. (engine, suspension arms, headlights, tail-lights, and so-forth.)
We also had Ogre & Gator on deck to fetch the donor and get it back to the shop, so with at least half the team present we began the task of pulling the engine out of the racer. There’s so much crap in the way of that engine we still hadn’t pulled it out by 6pm so we called it a day and ordered some food. Over the memorial day weekend Doc & Stickers will continue the job and see how far we can get.
Stay with us for more developments!
