Paint looks to be in really good condition given the age of the vehicle.

Rear Wiper Delete

Spent a little time this weekend performing a rear wiper delete. The rear wiper has been temperamental ever since I bought the car, getting stuck mid swipe or not working at all. So I decided to go ahead and remove it all together! I picked up a generic delete kit from a company called ZSpec for about $25, pretty sure you can get them for cheaper through eBay or Amazon but they had a fitment guide that listed the Supra so I decided to pay a little extra for that reassurance.

The process is pretty simple, the cover at the base of the wiper pops off, 10mm nut holding the wiper to the spline, remove the wiper, then there is a large hex nut that an adjustable wrench can easily remove, take it off then prop the hatch open. The trim piece on the rear hatch simply pops off, I carefully pried it off to ensure I didn’t break any of those precious tabs. Once the trim is removed its just three 10mm nuts holding the wiper assembly in place. IT takes some finagling but it comes out, it’s stuck in place by some silicone sealant. There is a spacer piece that needs to be popped off as well from the topside that is also just held in place by sealant. Once it’s all off, the delete plug goes in very intuitively and pop the trim piece back in place. Very easy mod and looks great once complete, plus you save about 2 pounds out of your rear hatch, I’ve noticed my hatch struts actually keep the hatch open now with out needing to be propped up, bonus!

ask any racer, any real racer
it doesn't matter if it runs 12's, 11's or 10's
if it doesnt have a TRD wing, its not a supra

Front end height is 100% better.

TBH I'd keep the wheels in storage but would get her a set of modern sporty wheels, nothing uber extreme but just freshen her up.
