Fast And The Furious Toyota Supra

Recommended Posts

So with my other projects giving me a headache i thought i would start on something a little closer to my childhood pleasures. I have always been a fan of the japanese cars and the Toyota supra is no exception.

This one is the modified supra from the first of the many fast and the furious films. Originally boxed abd made by AMT, im expecting lots of flash and ill fitting parts along with some poorly finished chrome parts and tacky wheels.

For the first stage i built the engine and painted and added detail.

Next was to start on the rear suspension and differential.

 Which was then painted and futted to the chassis.

A little more detail to be done like picking out the cv boots and diff oil drain bung.

Also the front was made up and painted .

Lots of progress and hopefully more later before i am away for the weekend hoping to get the exhaust painted and fixed and continue with the detailing on the engine.

So more work has been done on the supra and to begin with there has been more work done on the engine and engine bay.

 The engine is beginning to look much busier now which is a positive.

 Still alot to add in terms of wiring looms and pipes.

I have made a start with the wiring by adding the cables for the map sensor and the mass airflow sensor. These will be painted later.

 

I have also made a start on the interior using some matt medium blue which is the base colour for the interior.

Still rough at the moment and will be much neater once the second coat has been applied.

The current interior is shows its base colour and once details such as the subwoofers and the door cards painted and detailed, it should look much better.

I have also been playing with the wheels and the rear of the wheels which are solid have been cut out to allow visability of the shock absorbers etc.

I have alao notices that the whole body seems to be sitting higher than the real car.

I will check and adjust once the wheels are ready to be fitted in place.

And finally i have began working on making the spoiler look much more realistic. As a basic setup its looking okay but i think it could be improved .

 

More soon guys hopefully i can get the engine bay near completion and make progress on the interior also.

 

Thanks for looking in.

Great start, will be tagging on to see how this progresses. The supra is a lovelyJap car. Usually see the F&F R34 built so this makes a welcome change.

 

Keep up the good work,

And finally work has begun on the wheels to remove the solid back and to allow the springs to be visible through the wheels.
