    SRD-1000S Oblivion Beast Project.

    The year had passed my supra had not much progress on the respray, due to his mum having cancer, although he had promised my car would be done before January 2015! The same time Lee discussed any extra parts I wanted to add in terms of quality. We achieved this goal as I had the oppportunity to work so much overtime available, the hardest part about building the supra working 7 days a week sometimes, to 14 hour shifts.

    The guy who was respraying my car was a complete TOOL! Every time I payed him a visit he was too busy smoking/drinking and giving me false promises.

    Finally after complaining constantly, he had primered the whole car 5th October 2014.

    On the 11th December 2014 the car was still not sprayed, due to my build changing for the better I decided I wanted the inside of the car sprayed. Time was ticking.......









    17th December 2014.

    The last set of pictures were January 18th-23rd 2015, judging by the pictures you can see he has failed to complete the whole car on the agreed time, let alone prep any of the body kit......

    I contacted Lee and explained the whole situation the body shop had messed me about, so unfortunately the build could not commence and Lee had other clients waiting to build their projects. Lee discussed with me other options regarding bodywork and suggested Simon Autobody solutions, AKA Baldy. The same time we discussed other options regarding engine bay smoothing, so the next step was to retrieve my car from this alcoholic guy who failed to finish the respray, let alone prep any body kit.

    March 2015, upon receiving the car and inspection you can clearly tell by the pictures the short cut that was gone into respraying partial bits.....Details can be found on this thread;

    http://www.mkivsupra.net/vbb/showthr...obile-SR/page6

    I had asked him to treat the surface rust on the underside and under seal.....I guess he used spray tin under seal without treatment.





    The side step part.



    Paint chipping plus poor prep work.





    More



    Clown used a different paint code to the one I requested!



    I asked him to remove a Brocken nut, he told me I need to go to a specialist, yet I removed it myself within 5 minutes!





    Reaction on the rear panel.







    Judging by these pictures with intense phone light, you can see he failed to apply base coat paint!









    Wheels were scratched!

    I was a bit upset, but on the positive note I had followed Simons work and wish I had saved the extra to use Simon! I guess things work out for a positive note!

    The more I saw this build (Jay SRD) the more I was impressed;

    http://www.mkivsupra.net/vbb/showthr...-HKS-T62-Build

    On the plus side the build spec started to change slightly, we had decided to re-fresh the underside for new parts, I had always dreamed about how I would love my supra leaving Toyota from factory, the perfect supra in my eyes.

    Lee sent me more updates, I will leave these drooling pictures below, I personally think every big supra build requires a clean underside as well as the exterior. I have seen over the years lovely looking supra builds with neglected rusty underside!

    All new OEM underside parts, exclusively supplied by SRD 12th March 2015.

    Simon had payed me a visit to view the car and we discussed a complete full respray internal/external plus engine, complete overhaul on the whole car. This also gave me time to save, giving me a time scale from march 2015 to when the car would go into SRD than Auto Body Solutions towards the end of 2015.

    The plan was to;

    1. Engine bay smoothing/flush.
    2. Complete respray.
    3. De-badge, flush aerial, rear wiper etc.
    4. Under seal.
    5. Body kit fitment.

    In the meantime Lee kept me updated in May 2015 when my car could come in according to the other projects plus working with Simon on a time scale, great communication as I was very happy .

    SRD-1000S Oblivion Beast Project.

    This point I had decided when meeting Simon, we had discussed a similar smooth engine bay as Jay. Uzzy had received his car back from SRD in May 2015. This stage I was desperate for a ride considering I had purchased the same turbo kit, watched tons of videos on YouTube. We met up around May and I was astonished, his car pulled great and the sound was mind blowing, during the passenger ride Uzzy had mentioned some amazing builds at SRD, HUGE turbo builds compared to his tiny HKS T04Z.

    We had than parked up, whilst Uzzy went to the gents I was left looking at his engine bay! My heart had sunk, the turbo looked TINY!
    I tried to convince my self the turbo was HUGE, to be honest it is a good size turbo, but considering my plans changed with the engine bay smoothing the T04Z had to be sold!

    Here's some pictures of the turbo on Uzzy car;

    SRD-1000S Oblivion Beast Project.

    On the 27th May 2015 I contacted Lee to discuss changing the turbo and potentially selling the whole HKS T04Z Kit. We discussed few options and the HKS T04Z kit would make max 700bhp, considering I had enclosed in my build package was a complete built engine.

    The second option was the GT42, Lee mentioned it would be a lot different to drive. The last option would have been the precision 6870, considering it's new in the market with great performance figures and Phil had just purchased the same turbo for his SRD build.

    Luckily a local member had just bought the precision 6870 and had that fitted to his car. Nice enough forum spirit, he allowed me to pay him a visit. This was the ideal turbo for my build spec, plus the turbo had the presence for my engine bay .

    I watched few nice YouTube videos, my mind was complete. Lee managed to sell the HKS T04Z kit luckily to a guy from Italy, which than made it possible for Lee to order the precision kit he sells, plus few upgrades had to be done;

    Precision 6870 Turbo kit
    S6 plus
    Injectors
    Alternator
    Fan kit
    Side shafts for diff
    Fuel pump
    ETS 5" intercooler.
    Etc.

    We were now aiming for the SRD-1000BHP build

    Pictures of the Precision 6870 on a members car on here.
