  1. Discuss here - http://oldschool.co.nz/2011/forum/index.php?/topic/48697-blizzos-83-kp-starlet-rally-car/ Right boes, a dream of mine over the last few years of lurking in the corner of my father in laws rally career has finally come true. Yesterday I took ownership of am 83 Kp rally car. I have been wanting to get on the gravel for a while, and have had a go co driving for my father in law in his escort. Now its time to get into the hot seat myself. He gave me a bit of cash towards this starlet under the priviso that he sits in the co pilot seat and teaches me with the occasional drive, pretty good deal IMO. So dont get excited, this thing isnt that flash, hasn't been used in about 6 years and needs a fair bit of TLC, but thats all good fun anyway. good bits - - "worked" 4k, still unsure how worked, has 45mm sidedraught and quite a high duration cam, still waiting to hear from the bloke who built it for more info. - rego on hold - MSNZ hologated cage, i just need to finish getting my R2 license and get authority card in my name. - different struts with good stiff rate springs bad bits - -a fair bit of bog hidden rust - a bit gutless ATM, gunna investigate a few things (buggered mech fuel pump) and poss pull head off - a ghey colour scheme and average paint - VERY FUCKED DOORS (bottoms are very rusty) photos! bad bits - what it used to look like - what it could look like-

  3. Discussion here Hi all, bought this yesterday from Sparkle and his Mrs. Previous thread here, have a peek if you're interested as I'll be continuing the saga from where he left off. Bit of background on me: I'm a Pom that's been in NZ since August, I came over looking for a holiday with half a mind to work and ended up getting a full-time job. Since I'll be here for the foreseeable I decided it was definitely, definitely the right time to immediately spend all of my money on an old Toyota. I've loved Japanese cars for years and had to sell my AW11 MR2 last year. A sense of hollow loss ensued. I was drooling over this KP on TradeMe when one of my housemates mentioned that she was planning a trip to Palmerston on Saturday to visit some old college friends. A plan was hatched, the numbers on my bank account were turned into weird folding plastic Monopoly money, and a roadtrip playlist assembled. Met up with Sparkle in a fast food car park. I think there's probably a rule somewhere that says that cars and burger chains need to be brought together regularly, and I was hungry anyway. Had a bit of a poke and a prod, tried to make the obligatory concerned noises that you're supposed to do when looking at buying an old car, but couldn't really fault it on much. Properly gen-you-wine unbuggered Sprint. Test-drove even sweeter than it looked, I was hooked. Worked out a mutually acceptable deal and I disappeared off into the sunset. Mr and Mrs Sparkle seemed pretty emotional to see her go, but I hope my monetary contribution to "Operation Make-E21-Have-Awesome-Engine" softens the pain over time. She managed city traffic, winding hill roads and open highway all the way back to the Wairarapa on her best behaviour. Stopped off for some snaps at the Te Apiti wind farms en route: There are hardly any of these left back home because they all ended up on the stages or dirt ovals (usually with a Pinto and minilites!), and I've lusted after them for ages. I was originally looking for a slightly tatty Starlet to turn into a rally-esque weekend-fun car, something like this: ...but I reckon that would be sacrilege with something this original. Well then. The old girl was about due an oil and filter change, so I had a nice run out this morning to Upper Hutt to get some tools and supplies. There's a weird mix of annoyance and excitement at being in a new country and not having any tools. Of course the excitement is because you have the opportunity, nay, obligation to buy some tools. I checked first, but there were no more free service vouchers in the bookpack. Shame. Stopped off at the local dealership while I was in the area, just 'cos: ...and popped back home. Nice sunny afternoon oil and filter change. Plans: -Weekend car, just enjoy it for what it is over the nice summer months. -Investigate how best to protect the thin paint. Car will be undercover for the most part, but still... -Re-cover sun-damaged parcel shelf and get it seated properly. -Sympathetic, reversible mods over winter? Think rorty carbs, fast road cam, tubular extractors and a pretty skinny 'zorst. The 4k is lovely and is staying put!
  4. Hi Guys, here is my first thread on this forum so go easy on me I recently purchased my little beast beast a week ago as some of you may have seen on tardme, got it for a pritty good score considering but my first & biggest worry is rust, but i gotta say shes held up fairly well being under the weather for the last 29 years, all on New Zealand soil at that Ironically this was built in Thames in 84 & last week I picked her up...from Thames unfortunately the previous owner couldnt find the build papers which im real upset about but still have the build plate and sticker which i'll get a new one made up. This is how I bought it Engine: - 1300cc 4K - heat wrapped extractors - Some querky barely attached mushroom filter setup - Eagle 8.0mm ignition leads - New Carb that needs tuning - New points, condenser & dizzy cap - Came with free oil leaks from dizzy o-ring that felt like rock and from an invisible sump washer :/ - Custom fitted R33 strut brace - Somewhat custom 2"ish exhaust, one Coby resonator (NZ made!) an H&R resonator and an unknown twin tip Back box. Drive line: - K50 5 Speed gearbox - Standard diff and drive shaft - New Wheels bearings Suspension & Wheels: - Cobra lowering springs all round (NZ MADE ) - rear kyb shocks / standard fronts - Nolathane sway bar bushes - 3 X Nolathane bottom arm bushes + 1 X standard bush thrown in with a random square washer that barely missed the hub on full lock - 15 x 6 from what i believe Cressida Factory Toyota wheels wrapped in Achilles 195/50R15's all new tread Interior: - Factory option Rear windscreen wiper and de-fogger - Analog clock - Central Locking! - rear tinted windows - useless shift light - factory 8k Rpm Tachometer - heinous shift knob and boot - angry birds plush toy thing - sport style steering wheel I.C.E (best bit): - Pioneer DEH-4550BT Bluetooth headunit w/usb & aux unput - JVC 230W 6.5" front speakers - JVC 310W? 6x9 rear speakers - JVC 800W Amp - JVC 1200W 12" Sub Exterior: - day time running lights in bumper - led park lights and indicators - replacement semi-sealed headlamps with bright white halogen bulbs - front grill replaced with mesh :/ - Unknown NZ Made front lip also came with sideskirts and end caps Soon as i got home the shift light and gearknob was out, followed by fixing the oil leaks, tightening up not even tight tie-rod end nuts and missing split pins... Thats all the was wrong with it mechanically though, everything pritty well sound. Biggest rust patch found so far, only as big as an nz 50c coin I've already got a new/old front grill on its way, so started prepping and painting the light surrounds in Graphite metallic for now final coat then tomorrow it gets Plastic clear coated Also need to replace the key barrel switch as they had to rig up a 12v feed to the coil via external button whilst cranking as I found out today. Great to work on as everything is very simple but just need to replace the alarm they have in it as its only being used for remote central locking atm and clean up a bunch of other wires but no biggie. So this is pritty much where i'm at for now, im going to get the rust cut out but pending on how much people will charge i might just do it myself along with painting the car. Future plans: - Obviously putting my new 20v in and mate up a T50 (now looking at going for a w55) gearbox using the T3 4age conversion mounts and customize the gearbox x-member. - Hilux/AE86 clutch master cylinder & custom Pedal box to suit. - Custom drive shaft to either a MA60,RA65 Celica supra, AE86 or hilux LSD rearend then get it all shortened w/rear disc's - Going to work with Barry from MRP to Have a set of coilovers made - T3 4 link rose joint suspension arms
  5. This is my kp61 starlet build when i first got my hands on it it was an auto but was fairly tidy i had crack at manual converting but it didn't turn out the best so now im going back and repairing my terrible work and hopefully ending up with something that can beat my dads mini clubman it was running a 4k and a kp k50 gearbox but i am currently deciding what im going to put back into it. this is it as it sits awaiting panel and paint Discussion here http://oldschool.co.nz/2011/forum/index.php?/topic/48354-beige-bullets-1984-toyota-starlet-discussion/
  6. Hi , started building this around 5 years ago, originally was going to Just have a cage, hilux diff and run a mild 350 chev, but like all projects Its progressed and ideas changed so now it is a full tube chassis running A 454 chev big block turbo with a powerglide. Its got a very short 9' diff behind all of that spinning 15x15s wrapped in 31x16.5x15 slicks.

Gearbox blew up Found out it was cause the previous owner put the wrong shims in the gearbox and leaked all the oil. A week after putting new gearbox in Head gasket blew This poto was on the way home from Auckland. Note the tow rope.
