Kurt's Toyota Starlet KP61

Recommended Posts

Got starley back today. Electricians was a nightmare. First more intake leaks. The fuel return had a block in it.

All sorted now. Drove it home for the first time.

Then with the help of James did the first part in strengthening the rear strut towers strut is removable. I'll let the pictures explain the rest

Got a new 5/8 master cylinder for my front brakes. Feels a lot better than 3/4

Also ordered new front brake pads.

Waiting on a washer bottle.

On the look for a dash cluster with rev counter in it.

Mine has officially shat itself!

Nothing to exciting.

Did a little drilling tonight.

Okay okay TWO HOURS WORTH,

Drilled out the shock mounts on the diff and put in bolts!

Apparently because all the weight of the car is now on these instead of the spring perches this will save my bacon if the weld ever breaks.

Diff is all back together and seems to be fine. Took it for its first drive with new mounts today and all seems well

Gave it it's first wash since painting it and it looks beautiful.

A few weeks ago I got a t3 intake manifold.

The one on it was made horribly. It wasn't ported and made the engine idle like a bloody rota. Sounded cool. But not healthy.

Put this ne on and bam. Runs like your everyday 4age. Only fucking loud!

Only thing to do before cert is get fan wired up the right one. At the moment it's on when you start the car and turns off when it gets up to temp!

Woo

Going to take it for quick drives most nights over the next week or two to make sure it's all working safe and reliably.

Cheers!

Soooooo these arrived today! :)

Going to paint them and polish them up. Not sure what colour. Maybe red? But will clash with my blue car I feel?

Any who

I love them. They are however all welded together. Is that much of a bitch to get undone? Flip the centres? I dunno

Picture less update unfortunately

A few days after wheel alignment I brought a new daily and all my money has been going into that

Starley got a new big diff leak!

Have taken axle out 2-3 times and think I may have finally sorted it. Tried to start car for the first time today in a few months. Wouldn't have a bar of it.

Checked everything and have no idea why it won't roar into life

After 3 hours I kinda gave up in anger.

I don't know what the bloody things issue is!

Moved car into a new shed and got to buy it a nice new car cover as birds also live in the shed.
