    Great! Much love for the Swift/Cultus/Forsa/Sprint/Firefly!

    I have a G10T (turbo'd US version), and I have a hard time finding wheels that fit. How are the wheels with that crazy offset working out with regards to handling?

    Best of luck with the resto, it looks as if every thing that comes off the cars shows rust behind - I hope mine isn't the same... NYC cars rust even quicker than West Jakarta ones.


    IMO those wheels with crazy offset that i got gives me more confidence when taking corners.. in other words.. now i can take the turns @ higher speed with very little hesitation... :lol:

    yeah all the rust was found after stripping the car...
    evrything looks OK when i bought it..
    but keeping in mind that its a 24 years old car..it MUSTA have rust in it somewhere...
    i wasnt surprise when i found out how rusty it was.. :lol:

    turns out mine was a 1985 not a 1986..
    found out after a close reading on the ownership slip..

    some mild mods..dummy fit the new fan kit...
    Image
    i swap the stock fan...with the fan from a wagonR..made by DENSO
    it has more blades also it spins much faster the the old one..somewhere around 2000rpm thats what i've been told.. gonna be a useful mod to fight the heat here..
    got this new n unused from a guy who was trying to fix it on his toyota ke70..for only $60
    current price for the fan kit @ delership is US$120++... :D
    not too much mod needed..only had to adjust some holes..its an easy DIY

    i hate fillers...
    but since there are no donor car available for the body panels..
    i had to use a thin layer of filler just to cover for the fine dents that cannot be fixed with the body knocking method...
    so everything will look nice n smooth later on...
    applied the filler today....
    will sand 'em out nice n thin tommorow...

    progress is a bit slow..cash related problems... :lol:
