Its been a while: Welcome to 2013
Well its been a while since I’ve updated this blog.
9 months have gone by in a flash! Ive really got used to my new fly-in fly-out job up in the Northern parts of Western Australia. On my time off, i generally don’t use a computer as i have so much to do that involves going outside and not sit on my ass in front of a screen! Hence, the no updates!
Ive got a chance now to post up whats been happening over 9 months of life.
The Cresta going great! … I ended up putting in BC coilovers which i picked up brand new for $1200. They have a load of adjustability which is cool for street daily driving. with 12kg front at 8kg rear the same as the MA61 setup. I just drop the dampener a fair bit for comfort.
I placed in some Pioneer TS-X15II ‘s to the rear shelf of the GX71 Cresta, They are 100W so they sound pretty good (not all old and tinny!) and not only that…
During July i realized that due to work commitments and my general annoyance towards the way drift is being run in Perth i sold my JZA61 Celica Supra.
It was tough to let the best, most reliable 1JZ-GTE ive ever seen.. go…. However, it was for the best!
Currently a gent “Nathan B” in QLD owns the car and is enjoying the fruits of my and many others labor.
After I sold the JZA61, Holly and I decided to throw a 1GGTE into her MA61. So i picked up a cheap score from a friend!
1GGTE – Gen 3 from a GA70 Supra! came with everything we needed to put it in, and lucky for me i had some spare GZ10 mounts sitting in my shed!
Hollys GA61 runs great now! after installing some bigger AU-Ford Falcon fans, just as i did in the JZA61 to keep the temps down!
I then spotted someone “wrecking” a MZ11 Soarer on “Gumtree” which is a local internet site , similar to Craigslist.
I went to check it out and ended up buying the entire interior and a new bootlid !
After a heap of hard work and sweating it out i managed to remove all the Tan brown interior and replace it with black!
Then i got to work on the Bootlid! Which also turned out awesome !
As you can see, not a heap has happened , but enough to warrant a post
I do miss the drift car sometimes. But being debt free and saving for some travel to Thailand and U.S.A this year will be worth it! .
Ill try and update again sooner than 9 months thats for sure!
