  1. Ash’s 85 Toyota crumpy

    Progress. Picked up all new stainless fastnings for anything it unbolting/replacing, unfortunitly some are to short so I’ll haft to wait till I get some more but happy with how it’s going. measuring up and doing mounts to the rails will be more of a mission it’s looking. see how we go. Maybe make spacers and cut and tack plate?? Open to options or ideas on how to do it

    Spot the fuck up

    Stocked! Found an alloy tray for a good deal. She’s far to big, being off a 05 single cab falcon it’s far to long and hangs over a fair bit each side. fortunitly, it’s all bolts a riveted together so should be a piece of piss to get to mod. The entire thing aside from the chassis mounts is alloy, me and mate could lift it easily. So cutting 800 or so off the front and 150 off each side i should be able to lift it by my self without the tail gate and sides on. finally get rid of that water logged angle iron mess on the back! And being lighter save on gas too

    Drove out to the storage unit today in the tractor and pulled to doors off. Hopefully get these and the rear hatch acid dipped over the next week and start getting into epoxi primer. once that’s done, it’s painting the door jams and hatch jams in 2k black. Bolting panels on and taking it back to the panel beaters for panel and respray exciting!

    Picked up a vx landy fuel tank. It’s all completely wrong tor fit up on the hilux but the pump holder and baffle plates could still be of use. Cheap and just down the road I don’t feel bad about it not fitting up. maybe look at modding the standard fuel tank to hold the baffles and plastic tub the pump sits in. got some fuel foam from cardwells too so I’ll see what I can come up with. on another side quest to the current side quest I’ve brought back a side quest from another incomplete quest in the form of an intake manifold. honda intakes all have the throttle at the back of the motor, so being put into RWD puts them against the fire wall. ive got a mould for a carbon intake plenum from an idea a while back. Decided not to let it go to waste. Desided I’ll make the whole intake manifold from carbon fibre. Nick t 3D printed a mould for some runners and I’ve finished a couple already. Plenums ready to be pulled from the mould. im just doing wet lay so it won’t look super flash, but will be very light and strong witch is kinda my goal for the whole hilux runner diameter is the same as factory, but runner length may be longer

    So I guess the cats out of the bag. Before I get into it, this is a “side quest” of sorts. Mostly in the name of fuel economy. Or at least that how I’m trying to justify it the miss’. honda k24a2 : $1600 mc Gregor Motorsport bellhousing $750 02 civic type R flywheel $100 redrill flywheel for clutch $80 custom mrp clutch $500 k tuned Chinese replica parts $120 k20 starter $110 fuel line and fittings $200 fuel pump $120 now keep in mind the motor came with loom, ecu, transponder barrel & key, alt, coil packs, and basically a full repower package with everything I need. will take it from the.. standard: 2L 85hp 150nm to the Honda: 2.4L 205hp 232nm so around double the power. not huge power, however it’ll have more then enough power to have some fun. And most of all, use half as much gas! am waiting on the clutch plate to turn up then I’ll be able to bolt it up to the 5sp box. Mate has a class 2 buggy I’ll hook the slave upto to test the clutch setup before I try put it in. other then that it’s just fuel system, fuse box, rad and coolant lines. need to sort a v6 tank, possibly mounts for it. motor swap will be slow going and something I pick away at

    Found time to tidy up the tractor today. Replaced some worn out interior pieces with some slightly less worn out pieces.. made it out to the beach also witch turned into a full day with friends. Managed to get a bit airborne, but not all 4’s unfortunately. getting used to ratios too. Trying to get speed in 4L by shifting into 3rd before hitting a dune, but shifting halfway up a climb it bogs. Staying in 2nd means I’m not coming off the power to shift down half way up so I can make it up. Just means ringing the tits off the old 3Y haha kept up well with the bigger guys, just sucks in super soft sand, even at 10psi in the rear Smiles all round

    So some months ago now I had the unfortunate luck of having an accident in the carina. Pulling out from from work across a gap, at the same time someone was pulling across from the opposite side behind the car I was waiting to pass. Damage wasn’t that bad, front left corner, bend fender, bonnet and bumper iron. Most unfortunate bit was the left hand indicator and plastic surround was smashed to bits. I’ve got full cover so lodged it with insurence for repair. After trying to source parts, negotiation etc etc we got the ball rolling. Thankfully, I’ve found a really good panel beater. Not cheap but super easy going and happy to cater to what ever situation. Body’s mostly been sanded back to bare metal. Then sprayed in an epoxi primer. All bolt on panels will be acid dipped. Bonnet and gaurds have been dipped already. When I get time from work I’ll pull the doors off and do the rear hatch too. Not so rustic now

    What two part product would you recommend?

    Looking at doing under body atm would anyone have recommendations or hooks ups on this product before I dump money into it?

    Went to the beach, did well for a simple old Ute. had an attempt at a big sand dune climb, made all the way up until the top where I bogged getting over the peak. I’ll blame that on it being dug out by the land tank safari’s Early jap nutter was a G and sorted me with some nessary parts to replace the leaky header core and damaged heater switch assembly. Hopefully find some time over the next couple weeks to get all these little tidy up things done. trying to find part numbers for the 5sp g52 box as well so I can replace the seals before I swap it in
