  1. I'm keeping my eyes out for a well priced 2jz-gte aswell. Here is a pic of the overdrive switch set up. I'm happy with how it looks.
  2. Got the new rims on, and the 4 speed is in and doing okay, it has a slow change from 2nd to 3rd so im thinking a tranny flush wouldn't hurt.
  3. The rim has arrived, I think it looks good. Just fits in the guard. Trying to see if I can get some 17x7 for the front as the 17x8s are just a lil to big.
  4. I am also thinking about a engine conversion in the far future, its either a 1uz which i would turbo or a 2jzgte(if i win lotto). Could anyone enlighten me on what type of 1uz I will need. I know it should be from a uzs131 but I think that will be bloody hard to find especially since most importers don't list the model vehicle it comes from. Is this the right type? https://www.trademe.co.nz/2810351471
  5. We've had some trouble finding the reverse light wiring on the wagon so will pull apart boot and find wiring color and go from there. It seems that the 4th gear or overdrive is electronic so im going to put on a old style chrome marine pull switch that will look cool, I've got a old crystal red light that can go beside it and burn when in 4th. I think the manual electronic selection of 4th gear is the only way we can do it. NOTE- am now caught up. Posted all my progress over 1.5 months in one day as just started thread. So ill now continue with sporadic updates.
  6. I've put the 4 speed transmission in it with a mate for 2 nights after work. Many beers later and a bit of modifying gear box mounts and cross members we have it fitting. The knock down is set up and I've tried making a drive shift that fits out of the original and the other piece I've gotten but its to small. The piece that goes into the transmission only just slides in so have organized to get the original shortened by 40mm so it will fit in perfectly. Trying my luck on not getting it balanced as its only $120. Where the balancing and shortening is $280. Can always get it balanced later on.
  7. Here are the new rims im looking at getting.
  8. I put my mates cragars on it and really liked the era authentic look so have been looking to get myself a set. I think it will look bloody cool sacked on its ass with this style rim. His are 15x7. Ive found a set of new 17x8 with black spokes on trade me that I think would look sick. Ive got one being sent up for fitment so will check to see how it looks when they arrive
  9. Went and got the windscreen resealed as it was leaking like a sive, also had a wing mirror glass cut and a couple holes in the rear window sealed. Ive taken it out boozing a few times now and am slowly but surely falling in love with it. So I've decided that the 3 speed in it is to rough on the engine. I'm sure its sitting at 4k revs at 100 and I can't deal with 250ks to a tank. Posted on a few Facebook pages in Nz making enquiries about diffs and gearbox conversions and a fella in Christchurch has hooked me up with a ms110 four speed for $200. He also gave me the oil cooling lines and front half of the 2 piece so I can try smash it out as soon as. I'm aware my gearbox mount from the ms83 won't fit but will try whack it in anyway. I've cleaned the gearbox nice enough and will try put it in after work some time.
  10. I've had no luck finding any of the parts I need so far so I might look at trying to decipher the asian websites and ordering some stuff from overseas which I've never done before. I've installed half of my sounds trying to keep everything nice and tidy. Which is tough for me as I'm a lil rough, I blame my first and other current project being a rusted hilux full of landcruiser parts for that haha. I've gone for a full pioneer sounds set up, bought everything at my local repco and nudged the dude there down on price the best I could. I bought a nice bt headunit and put it in pulling out the old original head unit(which still works and was saved). 2x 6.5 high quality speakers which are in the original boot speaker holes. I've got 2x 6b9 which will go in the rear boot door panel at some point but are now just in speaker boxes laying willy nilly. I also had a sound stream sub, and 2 amps laying around which I ve just wired in for now but might get a big 1500 watt amp one day. The idea is to run the 6b9s and sub off amp as I've gone for 1500watt wiring kit. From my understanding sound quality is way better that way. Ill also run 4x 6.5s off the headunit eventually. I don't have any photos but will upload them when I can.
