So I've been working on this thing since last year, slowly "tinkering" I guess you can say. I'm not in a huge rush or anything but yeah either way here's some pics from the time I got it till now. Since last year I have started cleaning up the body, doing a mild shave in the bay and working on my long nose, and some other little things.
So here are some pics of the before..

Then I decided to buy some cheap fender mirrors, which are getting tossed, and a D21 front bumper.

Then winter came and I started to go crazy I guess, because I decided to tear apart a good running car.

Once I was able to clean up and clean out the bay I started to work on shaving the bay a little.
Image
Image

Once I got that almost done I started working on my long nose. If you haven't notice I have a problem with finishing one section at a time ha.

Then recently I picked up some wires wheels on the cheap, Still not 100% sure if I will use them or not. I do know that I do like them though.

As of right now I am still working on the long nose and also working on fixing up some wiring and some rust repair still. Hopefully I'll have some updates here soon. And thanks for looking, any positive feedback or just comments are always welcomed!

Thanks man! As for the motor I tossed out the old 5m-e, and currently looking at a few possible swaps. A couple swaps I am thinking about is either 7m or 2jz-ge, or maybe and I mean maybe a SR20. The SR idea is only a idea at this point though, as I would like to keep it toyota for the most part.

Looks awesome, have you considered doing a 1gge, i've always loved that motor, would be something a bit different.

The 2j is for sure on top of my list, except it may be a ge. I kind of want a NA setup but I will probably change my mind further down the road.
