    Well I bought my supra in pretty rough shape. Here's a pic of it from day one.

    NOw I temporarily got rid of the rust just to drive it around and heres how it would have looked last week.

    Notice the nose pushed in from a accident that happened before I got the car.

    Well I recently decided to stop being lazy and do the body work. Since the nose and bumper were trash I got a front end off a 91. THis one to be exact. THe one on the left that has the crack in the fog.

    SO I fixed the crack and did away with the grille which was a PITA cause there were holes to fill. Ended up with this.

    Now I had to worry about the rest of the car. I disassembled the front end and did away with the bent nose brackets and test fitted the new bumper.

    Here's where the car stands by the end of the night. Hopefully I get the prep work done tommorow and have a newly painted car by Mon.

    More pics to come as more progress is made. But right now I'm going to bed.

    so what I wanna know is, why did you just buy the front clip off the white one and not the whole car, and then use ur black one as the parts car if need be??

    White one not only looks like it's in good shape, those wheels make it look like the turbo version to me!

    ahh both mine and the white one are turbo.

    I didn't buy the whole white car is because I don't have the room for a parts car to sit and it has a bad motor and its auto. Its also not in that great of shape. Looks good from a far.

    Brother took some pics while I was washing it.

    Still need to put on the moldings and the two little grills on the front.
