Hello my name is Nathan and I'm new(ish) to the scene.
I'm currently the proud owner of a 84 Celica Supra which I have owner for around 7 months now. About 3 weeks after I brought the car I was informed about this site by someone at a car show, but could find absolutely no trace of it until today (exciting times!). It's my daily drive and I absolutely love it. I've been doing her up on the side and she is 100% mechanically sound.
Judging by reading other posts I was extremely lucky to find a almost rust free example especially for so cheap. The only slight downside was that although the sunroof worked it never closed properly because of a few rust bubbles causing it to leak. After making a right hash at trying to fix it I pretty much ruined my sunroof/roof. It is currently made water tight with bathroom sealant. Next of my list if a respray as the red paint is faded on the bonnet and roof. But to do this I need a new sunroof.
I guess my main question is just how easy are non mechanical parts to come by in the UK.
I had joined up to the celicasupra.com forum but pretty much gave up trying to find out anything from there as it was made up almost entirely of Americans.
