hi guys, well this is my first japs retro project...
it's still needs alot of work, but hey why not share it with other toyota lover...
its all original and i'm only change the wheels with Enkei Competition 8 13 x ( 7-8 )...
next i want to paint it with black with red pearl...well hopefully my old pal will show it's elegance once more like it used to be when toyota motor launched it in 1978...

looks nice, the wheels are a nice touch. but why not freshen it up with the factory color? looks good in red.

actually the factory color was called "tahitian red"...this car was already repainted by the previous owner with "super red"...more brighter red than the original one....
i love black and to make it more update, i think i will add red pearl....just wait and see guys...it will be soooo swwweeeettt.... :D

hahaha..you read my mind..... :wink:
i don't want to change the diameter of the wheels, i luv 13''....this wheels it's actually have 0 offset, 7'' in front and 8'' rear. but still it looks need wider rims. i think the car need 9'' or 10'' wide wheels with negative offset...but its REALLY HARD to find this spec of wheels in here.

well anyway, thanx bro for the comment!! :tu: :tu:

WOW!!
That color combo looks amazing!! Great job!
Yeah 14s would look awesome, like 14x8'' front and 14x9'' on the back, with 185/60-14's. Or somthing like that....just throwing it out there.

Great job renbi.
