FYI I am here guys, just saw the topic that was addressed to me that was locked. Lol. Well I've got nothing right now, just waiting for word on the price to build the lambo hinges. Meanwhile I am working on a drive-by-wire system for the Starlet as well as finishing up the anti-lag system. Should be interesting!

BTW mods should loosen up here...yeesh. Haha

I'm here too. Not that i had much to do with this project. I'm still on C.net because there is more information there for sure. I hope that site doesn't go down the tubes because I'll need it if I ever attempt a 3S-GTE swap.

righty-OH, i just got out of my med study for 2 days, and will be recieving a nice check soon w00t!!!!

So i'm catchin up on this and so far we're waiting for Magik to get back to us on what the dude from DI's been doin and whatnot. When he does and if it got done properly we'll be having Whodi send the money (agian if more than $800 others will volunteer to chip in) and get Magik to buy the FIRST set of real 5thgen hinges. Once he's got'm off to Conrad.

Again just waiting to hear back from Magik on the DI half of this deal.

Good to see a few here!!

Yet another silent member moved over from c.net. This is great because not only do i want the hinges for my car buy my friends and i were about to spend a lot of money on hinges for our show truck. An 86' ranger that is bagged, shaved, and body dropped.

I don't think it really matters, I do that type of work all the time at my job. It happens a lot in the manufacturing industry, a lot more than you'd think.

Nice to meet you Ron, I will be making more of a presence on this board in time.

I hope Magik hasn't "Disappeared", anyway I been yappin with Twisted Images about there kit. Harry ( The one who built it) said he spent about 3 monthes ironing out the bugs so the kit would work properly. Now keep in mind that they started from scratch. He dropped the GB offer to C.net cause everyone that contacted him just kept asking for the files. As I stated on C.net, my Car club is forking out the money for my verts, so I'm not really losing anything. TI and our pres have talked and come to an agreement on a price for a kit. I should be on its way to my house this week. Now because I'm not putting the money out, and our club mech is doing the work to get it ready in time for a few upcoming shows, I can't send it to Conrad, But if there is anyway I can help you all when I get it, I'll be more than happy.
Conrad, if you need me to take pics it, measurement, etc let me know. I can hold the guys off for a little while, but if I stall to long when I get it the pres will start making calls to TI asking where the F*** its at.

This sounds promising to me. Couldn't a few pictures along with maybe a traced outline of the hinge give Conrad enough to make the files? I guess only Conrad will know for sure but I'm stoked. My door is off my car right now so I can take pics of it and measurements if that will help any.

dude conrad said himself from posts on c.net that he wouldn't use anyone else's measurements but his own because he doesn't want to make a set of hinges and them to be messed up because of calculations on false data. A lot of people have said they would take pictures of the door off their car... it would be useful to a lot of us but conrad probably knows how it looks already. Also, I asked conrad once if he would could make the set of hinges from scratch but he'd first need a 5th gen donor car and the time to do that. So yeah... read up smile

guys just checking in ive been puttin in 15 hour days at work lately so haven't had a lot of time to read up. Magik has my e-mail and phone number but hasn't gotten to me yet hopefully we get this under control soon or at least an update he did mention something about a vacation so hopefully he is back soon if that is the case. Anyway just wanted to check up i just went out for a ride on my friends Honda VFR and i am buying a bike soon probably a little kawasaki zx6 but i don't want to spend the money until i get magik whatever cash he needs first ...

Bingo. I'd like to see pics of it installed on a 5th gen and pictures of the hinge when it is functioning...that would help for visualization. But that's all I would use the photos for just to help visualize. I don't trust other people's measurements...as at my job I basically compare my results to other companies (our suppliers) and I find mistakes ALL the time. This is coming from other Quality Assurance Engineers who do this day in and day out. Haha.

So sure if you want to take some general photos of the hinge setup that would be great, otherwise anything else would be pretty useless.

That sucks, I thought the whole time he was on vacation he had left his celica in the shop getting measured. Damn were probably looking at november/december if this thing does come through.

oh man... i hope this "patience" factor pays off man. Seriously. I took a girl out on a nice date today after coming back from Mexico (don't ask, LONG STORY) and she said my car was "Cute" grin

That made my day. I just tried to imagine my car with an all-trac Hood, lowering springs, lambo doors, and nice tinting all around. Would look killer and she would say it was "Hot" instead of "Cute." But for now, "Cute" sounds good enough for me.

I'm guessing the guys at DI probably know what we're gonna do with their hinges... That's why they would take their sweet time and make magik get another appointment. Plus they don't know how much it's gonna cost to make a set of hinges so they're probably skeptical about making some and then saying it's 1G+ dollars. I hope it's just $800 so Whodie could take care of it in one swoop (You Kick Ass Man!). After the hinges get made this will take off and it'll be smoothe sailing. Can't wait!

i highly doubt that DI has any clue as to what we have planned for the first set of hinges. There gonna, well for a lack of a better term; get 0wned by Conrad once he gets the hinges. So its gonna be fun!

My car has often been termed "sexy"

And...it's beat up. lol.
The front passenger fender is scraped up on the corner, dented in (the marker there is duct taped on, courtesy of the ex-gf who managed to PUSH the car into the pole by the gas pumps when she ran out of gas)
The Hood is dented on the front, right by the headlight -- from a baseball bat. (also missing about 7 inches of the lip on the Hood there)
Driver side door has been keyed, a small dent just above the trim.
Spoiler is chipped twice -- both right where it is split from the center piece to the passenger side piece -- from the previously mentioned baseball bat.
Back of the trunk lid is dented, from a truck, which also caused crackage down to the License Plate.
Clearcoat on the roof has been peeling away.


Yet still -- it has been, on more than one occasion...considered "Sexy"
hehe.
Though I plan on fixing all this, doing some personal mods that I have yet to see on another 5th gen, and swapping a 3SGTE into it -- all when I'm no longer poor.../then/ we'll see about how sexy it is =D

BTW I will be going down to Dayton, Ohio again for work in a few months (for training on the new CMM) so I can meet some people in person and see how well the hinges work on the car.

Well, I got my hinges from Twisted images on Saturday. Dropped them off to get them sprayed today. Should have them on by the end of the week. The guys at TI are pretty cool. Once I get them back I'll take some pics and post them.
