    1970 Corona Wagon MKII(Megasquirt 22RE)

    UPDATE: In process of a 22re swap. Engine bay will be painted factory blue. Flat clear over patina for the body.

    Free car. only gonna spend a few hundred bucks to get it on the road. will be slammed when i find some 15" steelies to throw on it. fixing floor rust soon and hopefully wont take much to get it running.

    After its first bath in over 20 years and some black on the wheels so it wouldnt look like a complete pile while i work on it.

    Before:


    After:

    No more Honda wheels!

    Tighty Whiteys

    yea i could prob run bags pretty easily with some minor fabrication. But the control system and compressor are more expensive than dirt cheap so yea. lol. I need to get a set of those '85 and up cressida spares to make it truly ballin' first tho.

    I found a set of these at the local pull-a-part. They are 14" on a cressida wagon. I dunno how they will look and am looking for some feedback before i go buy them.
