    Gutted the inside of the car. Twist tied speaker wire. Everywhere! So much of the loom is hacked up, obviously this car was built just after the peak of the show car scene.


    The sound deadening is manky as, chunks of carpet are attached to it and there is a nice patina of mould. Where do you buy dry ice from these days?

      Don't throw the interior out. You won't ever find replacement trims etc

          Yeah it's all stored in the disabled toilet at work ready to go back in once the rust is el-fixo'd. TBH it's all pretty fucked anyway, at least everything below the dash. All has been hacked up for the kebab holder, voltage gauges etc etc. I'll put the dash and the rest back in and see how I go.

          Old man rust repairs came over today and eye balled the car. Is happy to sort it, so it's on a tow truck tomorrow to get fixed.

              Hard to find them in good nick, they come up sometimes in auction from Japan but by the time you land it etc etc it's probably too much money.

              Man it's hard finding wheels for this thing, 13-14" , 4x100....found some TOM'S wheels ex Japan for fook all money - http://page23.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/j...ion/o155114313

              Other option is RPF1's but have to come ex USA / Japan for the right sizes.

                JDMparts.ruperwrecht.com on the book of faces would be worth talking to re wheels - he's always posting neat shit in 4x100 in those sorts of sizes
                "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

                  Dry ice can be found from.BOC at blacktown or from these cunts in hornsby http://fiegertsice.com.au
                  I wouldn't recommend sex, drugs or insanity for everyone, but they've always worked for me...

                    He has some cool stuff, not a lot of chop in 4x100 currently. Wish these were 4x100 - http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/kalor...ero/1132826457

                    Old mate is pulling the windscreen out to get at the rust, most/all of the clips holding in the side trim are broken. These clips here - http://megazip.me/M/41b/41b12ed20041...56177e14c4.png

                    Anybody know if they are a standardised part Toyota use for trim? (of that era at least).

                      dan dietritch has a line on the same toms turbine wheels that i run on the AW11 if you wanted to run 15s (you should run 15s anyway, way better choices for tyres)

                      try toyodiy for the clips but chances are they are identical to ae82 etc cars of the time

                          Early 3 series and geminis are 4x100 too don't forget, should open up your options a bit depending on what offset these run.

                            Tis true. Tyre choices in 14" is balls.

                                forged internals sounds good, assuming it's the same motor

                                throw a turbro on this thing and take it to marulan for some lols
