Excellent work there son. I feel a more HEAVY DUTY style clip may be needed for the power streering just to deal with the pressure. As for costing an arm or a leg I may need to post a pic of myself 1 day lol! those of you who know me know what
I'm talking about

Good call mate, was thinking that my self. im gonna clamp it up for extra safety just in case. Wink Post up that pic, in fact, someone should start a thread for pics of best cuts during car builds and call it "Blood sweat and tears" hahaha

Loving the work man!!!

What are you gonna do about the broke bolts in the chassis? That's one of the reasons I gave up on mine.

Seeing you build looks like so much fun, really makes me want to get out to my POS shell and rebuild it. But I can't Sad

Also i was advised on the Toyotaowners club forum to either have the power steering hose i made, pressure clamped or to use a power steering hose from a vvti Corolla, otherwise it will pop as soon as i turn the engine. So i'm gonna get the vvti one, hopefully that'l work Wink

Nah, my car is too ripped apart to be worth anything, especially when I have the IS300 LOL.

So instead, I can enjoy watching other people's AE10* builds!

me too but its getting badly rusted, and the only high temperature red i could get was almost orange and looks shit. can't afford to have it properly re-sprayed. keeping the firewall red and the tops of struts, the rest will be covered by engine bits! Wink

Did you say you had to change one of you're linkages on you're build cause it was too long? which one was it? may as well do that now before the engine goes in Wink

Went to the scrap yard today to get a vvti Corolla power steering hose. There were only 2 cars that had them intact but both still had the engines in and were very awkward to get at (lost a piece of thumb in the process haha) Had a look around and found a couple of Avensis's with hoses that can be used too. They have less piping and a bit more flexible so i went for that instead. Il have to finish getting it out tomorrow as i ran out of time and hadn't all my tools with me. You can also use a camry hose. Theres one out there i had a look at. Their all basically the same with different shapes, so thanks to the lads on the forums for pointing me in the right direction!! :thum:

So anyway, got more paint and finished the engine bay today. I have to admit, it looks sweet. Really clean and looks new everytime i open the bonnet!! Wink

Second coat


Front


I had some left over so i gave some brackets a spray too Wink


All brackets back in with rad and mounts and paper taken off. Love the matt black and red contrast.





Brakes arrive tomorrow hopefully Wink

Wow, that's... different. It looks like charcoal, like it's completely burned out in there from an engine fire.
