    82 Lancer SL - New Member saying "HI"

    Greeting!

    I am an Englishman living in Thailand who loves Old Skool Rides. Last year it was a tired looking 77 Sigma but this year I have fallen for a long term love. One owner from new in 82. Very original but for cut springs and the steering wheel.

    What do you think?

    She needs a front bumper and I'd like one like JUnRaymond. THe Gt one. but I am new to sourcing parts in this part of the world so I will see how I go.

    Hope you like the pics...

    82 box

    Thats a clean car for a 82, specially on that side of the globe usually they are rusted. Welcome to JNC Im sure there will be people that can help you out w/ parts. Same w/ me im also looking for parts for my boxtype like the door weatherstrip and window moldings. Let me know when you got the right contacts.

    Ha the gods must have thought she was too clean also... because on my way home a dog ran across two lanes to jump under my near side wheels! of course it hit the previously damaged side of the bumper and valance and creased the wing a bit but nothing that won't be hidden by a GT spoiler. Makes me more serious about a brake overhaul though. my Yaris would have stopped. Guess I'll have to factor that into my driving... till I get it fixed.

    So far "THE LIST" is:

    Oil and filter change
    Brake strip and clean
    Front bumper replacement
    Front grille paint (maybe fit aux. lamps too)
    Window tint (but not sure as it might loose its original look)
    Low pros on the current 13s.

    What do you think? :?

    82 boxtype

    Not sure how the road conditions are over there, on a 13's I'd put a 60 series in there. check and make sure your brake pistons are not rusted and moving in and out. The tint is your call, I would have it on mine.

    Nice '82 sir! Is it really that hard to find box-type parts there? I maybe able to help you find parts but I'm not familiar with shipping costs & procedures ops:

    Hey, how 'bout lowering your car like this...

    2-finger ground clearance.. same color as yours.. hehe :mrgreen:

    thanks! and just how would I get it that low? Think I am running cut springs already and it's bumpy as you like...

    Can you recomend budget shocks that would help dampen out the bounce?

    Great pics. I love Low cars. My Skyline is going to b vertically challenged too! :wink: :tu:
