I got back into a vr4 in the fall of last year and purchesed dmj's car. click
After a long winter of buying oem parts for the body and getting paint supplys it is 99% done. I am still waiting on front window trim to finish. With the help of a few friends the car was painted nile black. We decided to paint the sides and bumpes 93-94 toyota supra anthrocite. Suprising the y flow really well togeather with each having alot of metalic in it. I am going to keep the car stock apearing with a 2.3l and a bolt on turbo. here are a few pics of the progress.

Looks great, very clean. My only input is maybe you should paint the window trim on the doors!

Epic thread title.

Better get that exhaust shortened. It's a bit of a trip hazard, lol.

vr4ownzu goes gaga for engine bay shots BTW. He'd buy a total rust bucket if the engine bay was spotless....

Nice. Not normally a fan of two-tone paint schemes, but this is nice and subtle.

I plan on doing a dtm muffler from magnaflow and the side glass trim will be painted as well. It took the whole winter to do the body work and do the painting /wetsanding. Plus finding good replacement parts was a bitch with these cars getting up in age. was afarid of doing two tone but in the sun light it looks really good.

Would that be a "dual tipped muffler muffler"
