Well I ran into a **** ton of confusion....

1st I go to install the motor today... ??? motor mounts I purchased are totaly wrong... they are not SR20 to AE86 mounts, the SR20 side is not write at all.






Fine, whatever I will call the guy I purchased them from, and try to figure this out, F*^%k... whatever!

Pull the exhaust, yeah its gone and removed finally, no idea what brand this is at all, toss to the side.


Lurred my friend over with offerings of beer, to help swap the rearend out of the SR5.


got the rearend removed, what a pain in the ass, so many rusted out bolts.



This is where is gets confusing again! So I am kinda really confused.... My MA-47 celica/supra rearend bolted in with out the 4link I purchased (using the OEM SR5 bars, and the Celica supra swaybar) ..... ???... the only thing that did not fit was the panhard bar.... I am sooo confused.

Stance looks way better with the new rearend and mubflaps


Does anyone have an idea why the MA47 rear would fit with out aftermarket 4link??????!?!?!?

This is from assassin10000's thread (http://forums.club4ag.com/zerothread?id=28876):

FYI: there are several ways to do this swap. This just happens to be the way I wanted it done. You can do it with much less work by using a longer panhard & also different control arms &/or bushings/heims with the larger 14mm ID to match the celica-supra rear end bolt size. For instance T3 makes a 'bolt-in' 4-link & Lateral bar kit, it would mean you would only have to swap spring seats.

It sounds like there are some bolt-in ways to do it, but I keep reading you still have to swap the spring seats.

Sounds like yours was 100% bolt-in, aside from the panhard bar.

Maybe it has something to do with it being SR5 hardware instead of GTS???

Oh well, keep us posted

Ya, its really odd that it just bolted right up! I was very suprised. I did not use the spring seats since My coils overs are one piece, if your running coilovers you wont need to use the spring perch at all.

You know, I remember thinking "maybe he's running coilovers?" but I'm such a noob with suspension I wasn't sure when looking at the pics

Either way, it doesn't explain why it bolted up with the stock hardware, but it's awesome nonetheless!

Valve cover is shaved and painted!!!


But I can't decide on my theme. here are a few option:


1) sleep panda center


2) sleepy panda off center


3) falling over panda center


4) falling over panda off center


5) FRS badge center top


6) FRS badge center lower


or some form of combination like FRS badge where the nissan badge was, and the panda on the front etc.

Vote!!! I need help deciding!

finally got the Rusted out rotor, and seized caliper off thanks to PB blaster. Just waiting on the brand new rotors to come in, already picked up the new brake caliper, for the rearend.

Got the VC finished, and almost done with the Sapporo Catch can.

....well I ran into another snag. the DIY lateral bar does not fit the MA-47 rear... I thought it would, but its a 1/4 a inch off...

I will have to cut out the mount and put a new drilled one in, not too hard, but still annoying, oh well.

On the other hand, I put the VC back on, I am half way done with the Sapporo catch can, and wired up the Greddy profec B, boost solenoid to the boost controller.

 Re: (johnh) » Reply  Edit


thanks john, yes I plan on painting it. I made a one off color single stage pearl paint. It was a pain to get a single stage to look right. I wanted to paint it cheap, but realized I will probably bang it up a bit since I will be drifting this at events. So I had a panda theme (white and black) in two color pearls.

Both will be single stage Pearls. White pearl single stage,which I was told it does not exist but it does! Mitsubishi Dover white effect (white with white/ pink pearl). But you have to modifify the mix code by removing the 4.7% of "trans Yellow" to get a cleaner white. I may mess with it some more to make it perfect. Then I am using X48 Mitsubishi black pendleton pearl (black with blue pearl flake)

Here is the First test shots of the custom single stage pearl.


The Car will be painted panda themed, but any place that is Carbon Fiber will be painted white excluding the black portion of the panda paint theme, and that will be left Carbon Fiber. I am hoping it will turn out subtle and nice.

Got the Sapporo Beer/ oilcatch can finished. 6 bucks to make this (not includding beer) not bad and looks sweet.

(2) 1/2 flarex 1/2 MIP
(2) Nylon hose barb elbows
(1) 1/2ft of 1/4"ID vinyl tubing
(1) pot cleaner mesh for bafftling



Started cleaning up the muflaps. Used some cleaner, and a brilla pad.

Got my Trueno Mudflap stickers.

No, thank you sir.

And definitely clear coat them. I'd prefer taking the extra step, rather than having to reapply the decals later.

Thanks guys!! your post really help motivate me!!!

Man I just finished a HUGE test on lol "every vein in the body and all its names, every artery, the heart in its entirety from the cellular level up through to its basic functions, lymphatic system, immune system, and all the factors in clotting and blood work..." OMG what a test, I think I rocked it though, but my brain feels dead, and I already have 2 new chapters I need to read for next week... FML

But back on subject, Got some new toys in

Prothane bushing

New Rotors yeahhhh!


What a stupid, PITA, rediculous rear brake calipers this celica supra rearend has! omg lol it has 6 shims and two large thick thims TOTAL 8 F%$king shims just to assemble the brakes lol

Once on though, man rear discs do look sexy on this car!


Also put my mudflaps on and man they look good, car is really starting to become a car again!

Started taking off the rear side markers, so I can weld it closed.

So glad to be done with college, haha.

I'm pretty eager to see how the welding goes, I know a lot of people talk about doing it for the full JDM look, but I haven't seen any before/after photos myself. That, and I am awaiting the day I can strip my car down and rebuild it properly. Again, great work so far.

Ya I am 27! I went back to school for my Physician Assistant... I had finished my school and was done, but felt platued at my old job... but man coming back to school, and such an intesive programe lol!!! I am ready for it to be finished.

The welding seems fairly strait forward, just remove the lights, the plastic clips for the screw, get a nice piece of steel, place it behind and spot weld it on, then grind it down, and smooth out. I will post full detailed pics when I get to it. need to get my welder back, or get the car running and bring it my buddies to use his.

I got the DIY cause I thought the OEM 4link would not bolt up. but it all did, so I sold off the 4link to help make up some costs I had aquired and got the poly bushing for dirt cheap. I may go and build the 4link again, but I want to get the car running first. I keep having little things come up. As expected with a swapped car. but Its driving me nutts that its so close and not done.

Those are 14" Watanabe's you've got on there, right?

Just thinking what size rims (minimum) you need to clear the RX7 front brakes and the MA47 rear brakes. I know both are bigger than stock AE86 GTS brakes

The car is looking great though!
