This one is for the GTS guys.

2 way LSD for 82-85 supra rear ends
Would this not also work for the guys with the MKI diff? Good find.

Found a couple good sources in my quest for wiring supplies:

http://www.vintageconnections.com/ sells OEM style spade connectors along with multi pin connectors.

http://www.britishwiring.com/ sells wiring in about 100 different color combinations, perfect for making multi wire harnesses.

Fuel pressure tester banjo bolt (allows you to screw in a schraeder valve fitting.)

Edit: Stupid thing doesn't show the part number. Look on the left of the kit for the accessories.

Found the molding that works for the seat back cover trim.

May have to do some searching for a dealer but here is the link to the manufacturer.

Brand name is Protekto.  You need the "truck" size.  The part number is 39-410 for the 50' chrome kit.  Also available in Black.  

I used about 12' for both seats with waste for trial and error on the best method to install.  You just have to have patience and work with it.  You should not need to staple it back on as it has a silicon adhesive built in.  I used a heat gun to warm the molding to shape it around the corners and waves.  I would suggest using a hair dryer instead.  Applying too much heat will damage the molding and the black vinyl of the seat back.

Summer is here. All you kids that decided that A/C wasn't worth giving up for a few lbs of weight on the car, this link applies to you!
I just ordered a case of ES12a for $59.00 from http://autorefrigerants.com/
It typically runs 15° colder than R12, and doesn't have the ridiculous head pressures that the poor excuse for refrigerant "upgrades" R134a has.

This refrigerant is compatible with all automotive refrigerants, so requires no PAG oil or anything else for that matter, other than the know-how to install the fittings, (uses R134a fittings, ironically), and the ability to do a little bit of basic math.

For instance, my van calls for 3lbs of R12. Each can of ES12a is 6oz., whereas each can of R12 is 1lb. The 6oz. can is equal to 1lb of R12, which makes it very simple to figure out.

Hope this is useful for somebody other than me!

Just a tip from the Auto Parts supplier world.
I am the commercial account manager of a once CSK/now O'Reilly Auto Parts store in Portland and I have a lot of good sources that the retail guys often won't tell you about. Sure the 78 ST I own can be a problem to find parts for but I can usually come up with some stuff. Engine rebuild kits, trans seal kits or reman kits, performance parts from headers to Webers to Pertronix...   There's a lot out there we go find for shops all the time. If your local auto parts store scratches their head and gives you a blank stare ask if they have a wholesale manager and if he or she could maybe take a look.

I usually spend my first two hours chasing dreams for retail and hit as much as I miss.
