Thanks for the kind words everyone.
Perry, I hope we can hook up again in person when this madness has passed. I will host another gathering of the faithful.

The color is called Tangerine from House of Kolor. It has some metalflake and some candy in it.

Sorry, no build log. This project took me 15 years (not continuous), but I'm afraid it would have taken 25 years if I tried to do a detailed build log. If anyone has questions, feel free to ask. For example, how do you mate a Supra transmission to a Corolla engine.

Many thanks to DaveW for his wise advice and encouragement.

Now if only our local autocross events can start up again!
cheers
Doug
