  1. i've been trying to hunt down some wide rims for the 3 spoke type wheel. i had found some months ago but lost the site, so far i can only find wide rims for the 4 spoke style wheels EDIT: you lucky bugger you seem to have the 4 spoke wheels..
  2. i drove this thing up from Palmerston north for Stan awhile ago. brought it off an dude that owned it for 12 years or so, he brought it for his kids to learn in (thats how it got the dents) he's done all the work to it, he painted it 8 years ago i think thats why the paint it pretty average. was a dream to drive from palmy > auckland
  3. went drifting at a prison, snapped an axle 2 laps in. Good fun... Brought a big block 4ag for a good price. Brought some wheels on the to do list for the next drift day is - shorten diff so i can fit proper sized wheels -lower rear to nice height -make traction brackets for lower arms -new exhaust and headers -buy more wheels -stock up on 175/50/13 to run all round -fix the rear guards -new rebuild head on red top, new head gasket, water pump, cambelt etc. -new rear suspension -fix everything that is wrong
  4. hey did you know s13 stuff fits into ke70's.
  5. i maded suspension ended up with 6kg springs 150mm, ae80 shocks, strut housing shortened by 45mm i think, and ae86 camber plates. on my first test drive i realised my driveshaft loves my floor so need to cut and rasie that up. annnd picked some equips up and a bunch of other wheels slapped some tires on and this is the result. the back is still miles high because the ae86 diff hasn't been shortened so i can bearly fit a 13x6 +10, will get that sorted asap then the back can come down to match the front. after this drift day it will get a paint and a good needed tidy up
  6. fixed my front guards by ripping them off and getting new ones. went and ordered a few small parts from Toyota, dizzy cap and rotor, rocker cover washers, indicator lens. also brought some coilover sleeves off trademe to make up my new suspension and also corolla ae80? shocks, 42mm shorter in the body and 30mm shorter stroke i think. so i will slap all the suspension together at work this week hopefully. just need some camber plates, so if anyone has any old camber plates for anything at all laying around that would be ideal decided to treat my gearbox to some redline shockproof gear oil. found a spring in my scrap pile that looked about the same diamater, cut it up and made 2 springs out of it, stock on the left and new ones on the right and im trying out suzuki vitara shocks in the back, hopefully they aren't valved too stiff I have a drift day on easter weekend at an abandoned prison so that should be fun and hopefully the car doesn't break too much there! Talky thread here - //
  7. he shall never finish a project
  8. Got the scooter back from powdercoat a while back, got the engine blasted too and i'm painting that today. I made a huge amateur mistake and somehow left the fuel tank in the back of my truck when i dropped the rest of the stuff off at paint... so i need to sort something out with that haha. might grab a rattle can that is colour matched? On the plus side, the paint turned out amazing! just need to order the wider lips for the wheels and some new tires, but all new hardware then i can start assembly of this thing, going to fab up some new foot pegs, stand, and exhaust out of some stainless as the og parts were too far gone to make look nice.
  9. this thing gets me every time! its so nice man, can't wait to build a big bike.
  10. haha whoops. fixed it Next step is new front guards and try beat these rear guards back to stock looking.
  11. new seat, steering wheel, and shift knob. Need to patch the shifter hole as it has been hacked, much like the rest of this car. god bored and i hate polished rocker covers so i slapped some VHT wrinkle black on that shit. Took it for a skid it had a super sticky throttle and axle tramp of doom. the exhaust also fell off so a new one of them is in order. But first i need to add some sort of slam.
  12. talking thread - // so got this thing started up yesterday, got it running for about 2 minutes and it will then die, every other time it starts its for about 30 seconds then dies. Any suggestions? i was thinknig or slapping a new wiring loom in it as this one is a bit iffy. EDIT: Problems solved thanks to pbaines for lending me a bunch of parts, i slapped an ae86 (EDIT: ae82) ecu in and it fired right up and ran perfect! starts first pop every time. now to fix everything else
  13. give me some rad advice on what to do.
  14. so yeah, this thing got mentioned to me by a friend (seen88 on here) he told me its a kp starlet with full ae86 running gear for a vert reasonable price. I went and checked it out, and it happend to have everything that i was told, Blue top 4age, t50 box, t series rear end (unshortend sadly) adjustable front suspension, adjustable lca's adjustable caster arms, heaps of other random stuff. the story goes the guy that built it had a starlet rally car that he had but the shell was fucked, he brought this shell and slapped everything into it, then gave up? i guess... When i picked it up i was told it was running but it no longer does so i will hopefully sort that all out today! plans are -slam -paint -wheels -cert -do drifts all the bad stuff is annoying though. -yuck flared guards -Chinese fender mirrors -really bad bright yellow paint -genreal rally spec stuff that i have to rip out and redo to get legal -non matching seats (different bases to backs) I have already ripped out the monster tacho, installed my nardi and random little gear knob. I will modify my seat rails to suit my fixed back bride and i really want a tidyer interior with no screw holes in the dash.
  15. So, i just wrote a massive yarn about this then my computer had a meltdown so heres a summery. I brought this off guypie while i was in hamilton for work. I did skids then pulled it apart. It is currently at the powdercoaters. plans are, wide wheels, exhaust, slam, take the loom out, eventually drop a 125cc in it, then ride it. Pics.. How i got it: How i want it to look:
