I am going to post a small build up here on my RT52 Corona of the 1969 vintage. My plans are to install an 18rgeu with side draft webbers, w50 trans, ae86 gts lsd rear end, coilovers in the front, leafs in the read (for now hopefully 3 or 4 link in the future), restore/preserve the interior, keep factory paint and touch up where it is bad. In the future I plan to re-install the 18rgeu fuel injection, build a turbo manifold and put some boost to it through a air to water intercooler and custom log for the fuel injection I am still tossing around the idea of ITB's as well, but if I can source the factory fuel injection I would prefer to go that route.

Currently I have the interior out and am starting to line the inside with sound deadener. The 18rg will go in soon, hopefully next week. Ill post pictures soon.
