70s/80s rust enthusiast.  4A-GTE KE70 // AE70 hardtop coupe

🌟🌟🌟

Just need to say thanks to the legends who have helped me out on the car and with lending me parts over the past couple weeks. You all know who you are 😘 Im stoked with where the car is at right now, except for a few teething issues im working through. Cant wait until the new year to finally get some seat time on track. 3 years in the build, 6 years since I've owned a fast car. A little nervous but so damn keen. .

Spent all week and weekend working on this little bugger to get it looking half decent for classic japan, only to be let down by the thermo fan shitting itself.
Pretty bummed I couldn't get the car down there today but sometimes thats just how it is when you enjoy rusty old shit boxes, especially recently completed projects which are still uncovering the new build gremlins.
Huge shout out to the dude @w4yneker for his help testing all the electrical mumbo jumbo yesterday arvo. He's got a super clean old ZX, you should check it out ✌

Here's a little somethin' somethin' for the Hardtop. SSR Colin Starshark II, rebuilt by @pineeng. A lot less common than the crowd favourite original Starsharks, but just as awesome in my eyes. The plan is to store the original front guards from the coupe and source another pair from a T18/TE72. Those will be flared to accomodate the 13x8.5j-21 small boys, whilst retaining the option to restore everything back to original condition with ease!... Still yet to decide on what to put on the rear, but whatever they are they will fit under the factory guards without modification.

Wasn't planning to get a cage until next year some time, but the opportunity came up and I was able to get one made for almost half the price I had been quoted elsewhere, so I jumped on it. A coat of black to match the floor and it'll come up a treat πŸ˜€

Under the bloody pump trying to get this thing presenting relatively well for Classic Japan next weekend. What makes things even more fun is the f***ing tailshaft still hitting the floor , but further towards the front of the car now, right where the original floor meets the new panel I made up.
I suppose I could be sensible and lift the car a bit, but im an idiot, so no, I wont. Its hammer time πŸ”¨πŸ”¨
...also, in love with how much the sealed beams have softenned the face of the car. Its looking much more like it should now.

Making a bit of progress on the floor pan mod. Trying to use minimal filler and make the whole thing as incognito as possible. Fairly pleased with the outcome so far considering caveman methods were used to bend the sheet up. .

A bit of a flashback to two years ago, when through sheer luck, i happened to stumble across a dream car of mine on Gumtree (an Aussie website for selling mostly crap). One of a very small handful in this part of the world.
An 18 hour drive, a short nap on the side of the freeway in between, and I had it.
I feel a bit sad that its just been stored and not enjoyed recently. With so much of my attention on completing the other 70, and even finding direction in general, it's hard to find the time.
Next year the old girl is 40 years old. A milestone for any old Toyota to have survived...
I think shes earnt herself a bit of a revamp.
