TRAC's Tech Session
March 2004

TRAC held its 1st Tech Session of the new year at the garage of fellow member, Andy Packard.  Andy spent his tax refund this year by purchasing a Toyota 5-speed transmission conversion kit available from Herman vanden Akker.  This kit mates to a 1982 celica Supra 5 speed gerarbox and comes with all the necessary conversion components.  The buyer need to furnish the Supra bearbox and a few other Toyota components available from from the local dealer

Andy started by undoing the interior
