Spanners' SP60 Beams bugeye starlet
Posted 17 September 2010 - 02:24 PM
bought it kinda rooted, but really straight body. Now im half way through altezzing the cunt, gots me some coilovers and reyums, and a lux diff
Its about 400x harder than a 20v conversion, mainly due to it not fitting well and the altezza having some dumb stuff on it, but I hope its worth it when I load that stupid 80kg dual mass flywheel with some revs and pop some skids...
Gots me a Turd Wing for it, bolt ons, fixed buckets, minature steering wheel etc.
Cant wait to get to the point where I have fast and furious style stickers all over the sides, like big dragons and stuff. Im talking F&F 1 baby, original stz. Not.
And washed and still in progress...
Aim to have it done by xmas but work on it has slowed down as it gets harder and harder (and $$$$)
At least I sold the fucking chevron, was great to see it gone.
Sorry about taking ages to put this up, Im lazy and prefer to look at other peoples builds than to actually display my butchery

Beams + 6 speed
Daimante twin pot front calipers
626 front discs
Bluebird rear calipers
Telstar rear discs
BC gold coilovers
Walbro fuel pump
Im maybe half way through build, but things are starting to get really cunting. Will just solider on but may take longer than expected. Which always sucks
Um.... pics cos people have asked...
Suspension wound down a lot. Still no weight on it - is hanging at full droop for height setting

coilovers wound right down. I think I will buy new rear springs anyway so if i do I will make sure they are shorter and softer.
And one idea I have for final product, but I am still not sure on it. Anyone got any other ideas or thoughts on this one?
and of course, I wouldnt be a retard if I didnt give you a token cellphone in the wheel/how many credit cards can you fit between the guard and the tyre photo... (by the way the answer is zero)

And who wants a reference shot for placement and size?
And now its gone away

There was basically no need to slot the top of front strut holes, as where the camber adjusting bolts are going to sit will be within the original ring.
So dont cut it before you work out if you have to spanners you fucking retard

Anyone in welly a panel beater? I need some shit done and need it done proper. My seat mounts look quite fucked up from years of fat cunts. They need a plate or something. Also found rust under old battery tray but will be an easy fix.
I think i have fallen in love with the man who did this work for me. He undercharges so much, its awesome.

Not very big but leaves more room for required airflow to feed hungry hungry quads (hippos?). Also means I can mount homozuku style oil cooler and La Cocoracha air horns.
I expect progress to be quite pathetic over christmas as I drink myself into jolly oblivion etc

This is the ke20 heater I am going to use. Simota baby yeah. It works well, the starlet controls fit it well enough to work.
Dash test fit, surprisingly it still fits fine...
New windscreen rubber, was suuuch a cunt to fit
Standard headers look good
Honda civic radiator and new filtaaaah socks

Also have finally sorted handbrake cables, sourced from bluebird that rear calipers are off
Nothing else getting done for a few weeks
Posted 29 January 2011 - 10:17 PM
So my flatmate gave me heaps of stick about not getting much done lately. When a stoner mocks you about motivation, you know its time to go to work. so...
Certifier came around the other day. He said its all good to carry on, everything is up to spec etc. Except the surge tank which needs a catch tray around it which drains out to the road. For safety...
Now I have fully stripped car ready for painting engine bay and interior floor. Quite excited about the transformation which will no doubt come from a lick of paint.
Also getting engine sorted, got manifold on properly and all the right nuts and bolts. Sorting brakes and brake lines too. All calipers are away getting a refurb and all the rusty bolt on parts like x members and diff housing are at the powder coaters. I hope gloss black doesnt look shit.
Its the first car I have ever taken apart like this. Have learnt so much, its been wicked. I swear that with the amount of work that went into this if somebody ever steals it there will be a bounty on their fucking head! Its funny that my quick lil project ended up a full nut and bolt rebuild.. There must only be a handful of nuts and bolts which havent actually come off the car.
Also mad props to Toyota, this car is 30 years old and wasnt exactly babied, but still not a single seized bolt and only 1 tiny spot of rust under the battery tray. What a minter.
Anyway sorry, yawn. Photos
Some people wanted to see my master cyl backing plate
Interior proper raped
Door cards etc
Shows how tight a fit the throttle for the quads is to the fuel rail
All my stuff off to powder coaters
Shows how mint insides of guards and stuff are (excuse dirt)
Hopefully progress will be swift. I think buying the ECU is going to be the killer really, everything else is working out

Car is in workshop at the mo, been working on it recently. While I have it there i will sort all the panel work and get it macking!
Howat engineering has made my new driveshaft, its mint and fits sweet
Radiator is mounted, its actually something I stole from my old lotus 7 parts pile. Also robbed the oil cooler off it, they fit sweet. Kinda. Hope it cools my engine sweet, it was previously cooling a 3sge so should be close... And yes its dirty
Decided against megasqurt in the end. Will get a link one day...
Have bought ke70/ae86 lcas and castor arms, and a te7 sway bar. Going to make a fully rose jointed front end for extra noise and crashiness.

Got a good deal on the fuel line. Got a 10m roll of 3/8 steel tube from repco, was sposed to be $250 but then the old maori lady behind the counter decided that was way to expensive so just changed the price on the computer to $120. Legend.
The pic here is with the new LCAs, about 60mm longer than standard. Makes for some nice wide track.
Starlet vs modified KE70
Installed with TE sway bar and ke70 castor arms with rose jointed end
