    Jesse's 1981 corona mark ii grande discussion

    I think this thread is for 3 chassis ago. Yeah twin headlight with painted bumpers has always been the dream

    Jesse's Toyota Mark ii Grande gx61

    Raised it back up to get the outer sills painted white and straightened up and a few bubbles around rear guards seam tidied up. Struts have been crack tested, camber adjustable rear subframe ready to go in with f series 3.7 clutch pack lsd. Just need to fix various oil leaks and fit 205/60 tyres somehow and then try my luck at getting it legal

    For Questions Regarding WOFs/CERTs/NUMBER PLATEs

    Can anyone reccomended an Auckland company that offer NDT with relevant certification for welded stub axles that arent SGS (they apparently no longer do cash sales and I'm not opening an account for something I use once every 6 years)

    I'd look for split hoses on trans and check fluid level. I thought mine in gx61 was toasted until i remembered to check fluid with engine running They seem bulletproof as i drove it for ages like that.....

    Negative. Trying to organize it to put it through but the standard rear subframe are not camber adjustable so I have about 5 degrees negative camber at desired height

    Have you considered importing a tidy one instead of trying to repair all the imperfections of this one? You'd be suprised at how cheap they can be landed- probably the cost of a paint job alone tbh

    For Questions Regarding WOFs/CERTs/NUMBER PLATEs

    Do I need to go through any design approval processes or crack testing to make my Toyota mark ii gx61 IRS rear subframe camber adjustable - similar to this method- they are toe adjustable on the inner trailing arm mount but not camber adjustable on the outer so it's just replicating what's already there but making it stronger

    Have purchased some coilovers for my Toyota that have been welded to spindles as per the rules but I dont have the supporting paperwork for crack testing. I'm i able to just get them crack tested again now?

    Cut the shift gaiter washer off a legacy shift knob and snagged the rubber accordion boot from the soarer since it was from something else anyway both are temporary items untill I have a leather boot made. This pic also really brings out the colour difference from centre console to dash

    azzurro's 125p Pickup dyskusja

    Sorry to see you having such a battle with the carbs and very suprised you're having problems with that sensor as it was used very few times from new before that car was parted

    Finished the manual conversion bar reverse switch and centre console this afternoon. Excuse the gearknob, somehow it's all I have in the shed after playing with dirty datsuns for a few years! I Decided I'll get the engine bay painted when I twincam swap it in the next month or two so just gave it a quick degrease and wacked it in. Retained the engine loom from the car as these engine looms have the wiper loom integrated and my fancy import wipers have a soft stop to tuck under bonnet/valance so had to piss around disconnecting crumbly 35 year old injector plugs with sausage fingers.For other people searching front half of driveshaft for auto is 598mm flange to tip of yoke manual is 698mm. Watanabe centre caps and valves finally arrived from Rhdjapan. Valves will go on with a tyre change at some point.

    Gave everything a good clean yesterday after maximum road tripping for the annual japanese old car meet in Auckland today. Fitted this wee 300mm sportline I purchased from upgarage Came home motivated and ripped the engine and box out to do manual swap since I'm still on holiday. The hydraulic lifters in this are doing my head in with their loud tapping so I'm swapping in another 1ge that's connected to the w55 I pulled from a gx60 temporarily untill I have a twincam engine ready to go. Quite possibly the filthiest engine bay or any car I've owned with oil of some sort everywhere on drivers side of engine bay and clean bare metal exposed on bottom of firewall so tomorrow's mission is to deal to that. You can also see my crude bracketry made to support twin headlights and grill which I will revisit at some point! Peep the gz10 lurking in the back ground - will get it's own thread when things get moving
