    TE27

    I've posted on here a few times but there are no TE27s in the project gallery so I thought I would post mine.

    Before:


    Today:



    I want to get a front lip for my TE27 but the problem is that I am not willing to drill into the front valance for installation, any ideas?

    I had to search for awhile to get a 73 valance and ended up having to buy a parts car to get one. My dad had it re-done for me as a birthday present so I would like to run something I can install or remove when I want to.

    Here is a pic of my car..

    Here is the refinished valance installed.



    Some engine pics




    That's all for now.

    TE27's will never go out of style :mrgreen:

    Did you redo the paint? Looks much more cleaner :tu:

    Well whatever you use it has too be attached somehow.

    Come up with your own one off no drill mount?

    3M double tape,or panel adhesive?

    I used the small VW duckbill one piece spoiler on my NOS 73 valance.5 small srews.
    Gotta have it ,gotta do it.

    I did not redo the paint the previous owners did and it is a poor job, everything taped off and lots of bondo. The drivers side fender was bondo'd to the car at the bottom. It probably looks good because I stay on top of waxing 8)

    Still not sure of how I could mount a spoiler. It seems like a good winter project.

    I went to Car Craft this year and got a few pic on the way from my house to my parents on the back roads.

    Man, everytime I see pics like this, I kick myself. I was at an auto auction a few years ago and passed on one of these. Ended up going for all of 40$... it was a POS though. It was a decent parts car, luckily, it wasn't an SR5 just a base model. I had no room for it, blah, blah, blah... Yours looks sweet, bondo or not.

    Nice car!. How I long for a Te27 in Honda championship white 8), unfortunately they're as rare as a unicorns fart here where I live :mrgreen: . Are those Tosco Rims by the way?

    They are TRD Tosco rims 13X8 and not sure on the offset but its close to -15. I no longer live in Springfield as you can see in the pic the background is lacking mountains, I'm in Minnesota now.
