Thumbs up on the hood! its proper to assume you didnt need to do anything fancy because of the beams tall valve cover. looking good!

Oh no... it definitely hits the valve cover but so did the oem hood. I still need to do some adjusting to improve fitment but I'm happy with it so far

Hey Rue,

Love you build homie! Hey man, do you still have ur build thread? I know you had the thread on the old C4AG, site. Just curious if you reposted it up. If you did, can u please link that for me. I'm currently working on getting all my ducks in the road to replace my trusty/reliable 4AG for this more powerful BEAMS engine. Thanks man.

That was just a well taken pic of my ugly project. The cressida still isn't running yet. Just finished making my own front suspension setup and I'm working on 5-lug converting the rear and replacing all of the rear bushings at the moment. Not sure what pictures you'd want but here are a couple...

I cut 60mm out of the strut tubes just like I did on my corolla coilovers even though everyone said 60mm was too much and used sw20 struts with some donated HKS coilover springs. I machined my own lower spring perches, top hats, and camber plates.

Time to get the celica-supra rear end done. We are making new 4-link mounts to weld to the rear end housing. Ordered material on Thursday and picked it up on Friday.
