Hey to you all!
My name is Timo, and I'm from Finland, which lays at the northern Europe.
I've looked around here and seems that the site is really lacking RT102/RT104's..so here we go with another (almost) fine piece of the model.
It's from the year 1975 and originally it had 16R engine with W40 gearbox (4-speed).
The previous owner was a good friend of mine, and he bought it for subject to change the engine and all needed mechanics for more performing one.
The body is about rustless and it was driven just 100 000 kilometres when my friend bought it.
Now, 12 years later, it's gone through some heavy changes.
The engine is swapped to 2,5 litre V6 (2VZ-FE) from '88 VZV21 Camry, gearbox is from Celica W5* series 5-speed one with custom bellhousing fit, (though the gearbox is pretty worn out) clutch is from Hi-Lux pickup, power steering is a combination from Hi-Ace and Camry parts
..and with like this, endless changes. It took total of 4 years from my friend to build the car, and when it was about to get ready, he got fed up with it and he moved along to Cadillacs..
Here's some pictures of this 'project', which is about to be ready for casual running at traffic next summer..the paint will follow on the next winter.
