1982 Toyota Corona Mark II Grande GX61 Project.

The pics are before it will be modified. Will update regularly once started my project.
Looks too high at the moment.
Old original interior, feels like a old ladys couch. Will be fitting a custom gearknob and smoked gauges too.
I replaced the original 1G-EU with a 1G-E. The 1G-EU burst a front crank seal and was using more oil ever week than petrol. The new one runs really good and uses not a lot of oil surprisingly.

I love dirt jump and mountain biking and my brother buys the books and gave me the get free stickers so I decided to skicker bomb the rear left window with them. The following pictures are of how it turned out.

I got a battery box off him also and all I need is some 4-gauge wire and the needed components and that will be sorted.
Thats all for this update I'm off to polytech.

I have got rid of all the stickers apart from one new one on the rear window in the corner, got some 6-inch speakers for the front and geting a new head unit because the one i had in it has baked itself and doesnt seem to want to play CD's anymore.
Got a 1G-GE off Rick (TMC-ke70) for $300 He had completely re-placed all the gaskets and gave it a cam grind i think. Shes a bute and will look good sitting in between the struts of my GX61 with a Individual Throttle Body set-up on the side and a set of equal lenght headers (2JZ ones made to suit, Easy as, though others on here will disagree).
The next upgrades to come are a W55 gearbox, new clutch and lightened flywheel, Clutch pedal, Boso/Dildo Gear knob, to get a exhaust manifold gasket cut out, to start work on the exhaust manifold adjusting.
More updates and pics to come.

Ive also be cutting, grinding and general shaping some 2-inch stainless tube to make a boso pipe that I will hopefully have welded up fitted by friday and il also make another Boso hanger/ring that was stolen by some sad sack on a late friday night a few weeks back.
Im currently waiting on the RB26 ITB gasket to be cut out and then ill get the ITB's off my brother and get another intake manifold and cut and shape that one to fit the ITB's on it. then il get an aftermarket version of the standard ITB manifold and run the air flow metre and a Greddy E-manage to run the whole set-up.

So we set off from home, and got about 20km and started to hear a HORRID sound, so i thought that i should pull over, So i did and looked around the engine, and it didnt look good. think it was the tapets and the big end bearing that have stuffed up Luckly we stoped right oppisit a Undercover cop and he drove on. so i decided to go back home and not risk it ended up geting the car 100m from home half way up a hill. So me my brother and sister pushed it to 3/4 up the hill. Glanced at the dash and the water temp gauge was in the red. OOOOppppssss.
Had some powerade in the car so i tryed to cool down the block and raitator and that "KIND OF" worked, anyway got it started and got home and the it finally gave up the ghost and is now sitting in our yard dead. So il push it into the shed and start pulling it apart to get the engine conversion underway.
LOL. Oh well......... One good thing to come from it. (I spoze)

Looks pretty dope so im thinking il be doing this with mine. Not a big fan of the turbo intake pipe being bend and distorted. but each to there own I spoze. Il do it differently though. Thinking of doing it with mild steel (cos cheaper) and il have a special plain for it (Carnt tell ya though) HEHE.
