My son got himself a Toyota MR2. Like most old cars it provides lot of challenges in getting parts and fixing stuff. My share in the project was manufacturing replacement broken interior parts. All made of red gum finished with two pack.

Those little MR2 were pocket rockets. Fun little car to drive.

oops. sorry. Two pack is – two pack polyurethane finish with high durability and very high gloss finish ideal for flooring and benchtops. I used the one from Watttyl (last on the page).

Pretty neat! But your steering wheel is on the wrong side. :)

Looks good. Don’t know about in Oz, but here in the states, the Toyota Dealers carry, or can order parts for older models no problem. Back in the late 1990s I had a 1976 Celica GT Liftback that I replaced the broken factory center console on, and I got the replacement piece from my local Toyota dealer. It was in stock, in the color I needed too. Now having said that, your wooden replacements look nicer than the factory black plastic…

Had me doing a double take, with that right hand steering, until I discovered you were in Australia. We neverworried about getting old parts, when we could not find a 1932 Ford engine we just built an adapter kit andput a 1957 Oldsmobile J2 V8 with a tri-carb setup in our Ford Sedan. It ran even better than before althoughthe Patrolman disagreed with what we thought Safe and Prudent was. That was what our daytime speed limit was back then. Great job on the parts, and it is nice sharing shop time with your son. We found youcan put the newer Cadillac Northstar V8 in the Pontiac Fiero, wonder if it would fit in the M2,nah probablynot a good idea.Welcome to Lumberjocks, hope you enjoy your stay.

Nice work. They fit so well and look so stock, I had to look twice to see what you had done. Again, beautiful.
