In 2006 I bought my first car off ebay, a 1982 Toyota Celica RA60.
To get it on the road I had to spend a large amount of time in the garage of the apartment building I lived in working on it to repair the rust that had begun to destroy it. I also started reading the ToyMods website and forum, to get ideas and help on working on my car.
In 2007, I found a 1984 Toyota Soarer MZ11. So I bought it, again off ebay, sight unseen and sold the Celica.
Unfortunately the rust in the MZ11 was much worse than the rust in the RA60. Eventually this meant that after a couple of years of driving, it was unable to be re-registered.
At this point in early 2010 I found a 1985 Toyota Soarer MZ12. So I bought it, again off ebay, sight unseen.
I was lucky, there was much less rust in the MZ12 than in either the MZ11 or the RA60. But the MZ12, had other problems; engine and electrical, being of greatest concern. So this blog is about the MZ12 and how I go about disassembling it repairing and putting it back together.
