It won't when I fix the small hole in the hatch.
Don't worry about anything getting that wet though, all the water that gets in it just drains out of the small hole in the spare tire well.

does it run, i noticed no p/s belt

Yeah, but the door isn't rusting. It's that portion of the rocker panel. Looks like someone didn't really prep the car properly before painting it. It has some surface rust in a couple other places, but for the most part the body is solid.

Yeah it run really well actually. I was kinda surprised, it feels fantastic. You almost can't tell it has 190k on the clock. The PO just did a timing belt job and said that he didn't feel like putting the ps belt back on for what ever reason. Found the belt in the back of the car, at the moment I don't really mind driving with out ps. It's not that bad.

how bad is the rust on the rockers? I dont understand why out of all things he would become lazy about that belt lol

renegadex
12-11-2008, 09:15 AM
lol I might. Right now it's going to sit until xmas. I bought the car so my dad and I could do something together. He wanted an American car to restore, like a 69 Camaro, but the supra is sooooo much cheaper. And I work at a Toyota dealership so it just makes sense. If he doesn't like it I'll probably just fix the problems and make it a dd or just fix it and sell it.

It's not bad, just a little bit of surface rust. The rust stain makes it look worse than it is.

Those are pretty nice, but if I were going to get some wheels I would get some old SSR mesh wheels with a very large lip. I just like the way older wheels look on older cars.

I'm pretty sure its the plug wires. They are old, brittle and cracking. It's been raining for 4 days just about non stop down here and for that time the car had been sitting. After checking for fuel and spark coming off of the coil wire, it seems that I just need new plugs, wires, cap and rotor.
