    bong's TE27 update...ROLL CAGE!!!

    Hello,my name is Bong, as I'm called by family and friends). I'm a regular member at other toyota forums site as well,mainly celica, but I have since sold my'74 ra21 gt. recently.

    anyway, after I sold my ra21, stumbled upon this rt105 on the side road for sale. Can't help myself so i bought it. It needs a lot of work like new paint,interior,suspension and a rebuilt carb(won't pass smog currently) has since rebuilt it my self now she idles smoothly.
    don't really know why I got it but???

    Here's she is before buying:


    After I got the car home: replaced wheels with these autobahns.


    Latley been testing things I've picked up from j/d's(sideskirts)


    i'm worrking on the suspension for now. dropped the car with a 2" lowering block and currently finishing the whole fronts(replacing all ball joints,tierods,swaybar bushings struts etc. she bounces like a basketball


    I will post pics of things I've done and interchangeable parts found for my rt. :twisted: :twisted: :evil:

    Rims are 14x6 with 2" wide lip by autobhans. here's my 72 project. Just ordered the chin spoiler and will be here soon. doing two projects at once was not a good idea. Thanks.

    Only! I've got two but if you include other non-car related projects like my furniture, moms patio brick project I need two more hands I buy sell and refurbish vintage modern furniture.

    Anyway, Just finished my lowering job of the car.


    What do you guys think of this spoiler? It's from an bmw 325i(e30?) it's a tad little short on both ends by 1/4".
