  1. I've really enjoyed watching this come together, it's turned out mint!
  2. Pushed this out of the garage today to give it a wash and see what I'm actually dealing with, tried polishing the boot to get rid of the surface rust, it's better but still needs more work and I pushed it all the way up the driveway purely for a pic with the crown, GF was very unimpressed when I told her the actual reason I made her help. It's TINY compared to the crown also picked up the rest of the stuff that comes with it, except I've missed the struts I just realised. 7K-E and G52 box fit nicely in the back of the daily And I got the wheels, 14x7 and 14x6.5 watanabes, minor positive offsets, I'm pretty stoked with these! Although they require a stud pattern change to 4x114.3 can anybody ID K sumps by eye? I need a 4K one, this came with, no idea if it's the right one cheers Matt
  3. There's two facelift MS45 sedans that I know of, one is a members car @ruff kunt automotive From memory no pre facelift (round taillights, same as mine) have shown their face but who knows what's hiding in sheds
  4. They are more common, but Aussie is a big place. Finding decent parts cars for a decent price that aren't on the wrong side of the country is a lot harder than it was 5-10 years ago
  5. Definitely a witch
  6. We've got a few boxes of spares but Loz has already sold off the stuff she doesn't want to keep just in case. It was her first car, she's had it for 17 years, she's stripped 4 cars over that time, and considering how hard it's getting to find decent replacement panels/glass/bumpers she just won't let it go. Can't say I blame her
  7. Fuck photobucket is shit. Next time I'm procrastinating about doing something I might come back and fix this thread. Yes I've still got it, still doing basic maintenance and driving it as often as possible. Recently replaced front shocks, LCA and UCA ball joints, and after driving it today it looks like I'm due a wheel bearing. Old car life/worth it a few pics so you remember what the hell it is Cheers Matt
  8. Ha, the stout is in NZ and the crown ute is not even a roller so it makes it difficult corona and carina crown sedan and corolla Crown ute and gf's celica and stout corona I bought for some parts I wanted for the carina, it's going to be sold fairly quickly. Might have to sell the carina too now the Corolla has come along. I got carried away again cheers Matt
  9. When I was helping my mate clean out his workshop I saw a random old Toyota steering wheel, I grabbed it thinking it was off an MX22 he stripped a while back but now I've had a Google I'm thinking its very likely the original KE15 one. Way better than the rusty aftermarket shitter that was there had a good look through the interior, door cards and roof lining are mint, seats are pretty much totally fucked from the sun. Will keep an eye out for decent KE20 interior in black. found the original service book, with vouchers! Hadn't even used the 48,000 km one, the dash shows 52,000 so I'm wondering if it's actually only done those km's. First owner had her until at least 2000, last rego paper showed a pensioner discount. Original tool kit was missing one spanner, and had a dirty Nissan screwdriver ive got these MX22 hubcaps which I wouldn't mind using but it turns out that 14" wheels in 4x110 only came on R100's, and people want drug money for the, these days so I may need a plan B cheers Matt
  10. Assembled the front today, mainly because I've run out of room! slammed it so my garage looks cool, it'll sit like this for a while until I've finished the Corolla. Also acquired a free 5MG, the only M motor I'd consider running. It's a possibility, they look sick on carbs/ITB's. 1st pic to prove it! cheers Matt
  11. Incorrect. I need ALL the rusty old Toyotas!!! I'd rather finish it, don't need the money anymore, and I really do want to get some enjoyment out of the copious amounts of $ I've poured into it
  12. That video really does make turbo options look more tempting
  13. Red one with stripes and race numbers? Adam Laws threw that together, that's the exact car that made me want one as much as I've never been a K motor fan I think you're right, this is the right car for one
  14. This is where you tell me why I should/shouldn't rotary swap it................. I won't. So far almost all the Kiwis I've told have tried pointing me in that direction, the Aussies are more inclined towards an LS1 Cheers Matt
