Baz called me and asked for more paint.

A good opportunity to check out the progress.


Upon arriving, my car was the only one there, they said I was an angel with my timing.

- perhaps a large hairy smelly one.

We are up to 1litre of caprithane for the roll cage,

4Litres of base colour, since I will paint all the underside, rear end, cabin etc.

Otherwise they have blocked back some of the panels and body a few times, so its starting to get a smooth skin.

Baz and Clint reckon they are on time to get it out in another 2 weeks.

The rear subframe needs to come out to spray the rear end of the car, covering over the tar based underseal.

They will apply some more modern based underseal that is sprayed on, before the colour goes on. This will help minimise stone chip damage underneath.

The wheels, those dodgy black n red stripe jobs, are to get their rubber removed, sanded up, and painted a single colour.

Then we can vote 'the money or the bags', or perhaps the lack of either.

We will gun another coat of clear to make good.


Without quesion, once I (sorry Baz) took the time to get the dust of (=1 box of Stella), I am seriously happy with the results.

Class, with menace.

It is very similar in nature to this car.

the colour seems to make the chrome work standout, which was the plan all along you see.

Hey thanks for comments, I appreciate them ladies and gents.

The colour works really wellin the flesh, kind of an understated menace. A smiling assassin?

The ex was good for something, she choose them....





anyways,

No mucking about here.

Start at the easier end for now.

Take out rear subframe

Image

Image







Bushes for subframe to body need swapping over
Easiest to do them now...

Image








diff bushes need to be sourced and chucked in

Image


Image









rear brakes need completing, been rebuilt, just a quick spray and in.

rear lower arms could do with a strengthen. Its a gaijin copy of the Nismo options. Very high tech stuff this cardboard.
Since Ill get a local engineering shop to press in/out the bushes, they can weld up some plate to the lower arms until such time as the TIG turns up.

WARNING

THESE ITEMS ARE NO LONGER OEM GENUINE NISSAN ITEMS

VIEWERS BEWARE

Before,
sophisticated templates cut out with kids snips,
welded in using 2mm plate
paint applied

Had to press out one bush again so it didnt melt out

Image

Image

Image

Image









I believe Ive spent more on this rear end than a 2nd hand skyline complete...ergh.

Subframe bushes in - Autolign in Carbine Rd
Good fast service, cheap prices.

Diff mounts are not listed under ER34, but S14 Silvia, but fit well.

Rear end shoved together with little love.
Some bolt threads stripped from panelbeater/painters lack of love.

Ill need to replace a few of them
Might even need to get that one camber arm the right way round, doh.


Image

Image

Image











Dug up the rubber trim that heads around the FAKE super wide ZG arches and gaurds
also used the clips that cover the screws, looks pretty tidy.
Could do with a minor adjustment later.


Image

Image








While AUtolign were sweating over the bushes,

I mucked around with the rear end.
Need plenty of parts, rear lamp rubber gaskets, straighter lamp garnish? panels etc.
Decided to keep the original rego plates, look period.
Rego still live, smart boy...

Image











Image











Stainless roof channel chrome given some lovin and clipped in

Ill get some new quarter panel badges for xmas if Im lucky.


Image

Image





Thats it for this week.
Collect TA22 0800 tomorrow.

Thanks people for the comments.

It gets me out of bed at 4am to do a few hours on it before work. Maybe. Well probably not, but sounds good.



My new ride in addition to the real bad ass is this yoda.
Now please pardon the shift in brand.

Ill have a link some stage soon to the appropriate site for the continuation of this cars build and development.

Its a 1973 Toyota Celica Ta22
It has a 4cyl 2.0l engine from a ST215 Caldina GTT (the ugly station wagons).
Engine is totally stock internally.

All power adders are external.

The chassis has heaps of work done to it, coil overs Bilstein and Carrera rears.
Camber, castor plates, bushes, Evo 8 brakes, LSD...

It has 400hp at the rears, it weighs complete all fluids/fuels 1060kg.
TD06-25G turbo, 800cc injectors, Link G4 ECU, Elec water pump, elec boost control etc...

It will teach me plenty about what driveability Im after in the zed.
This car requires some work before Im completely happy with it.

Car is completely legal and engineered.




Collection location
Not ready for the PepperTree just yet

Image


Image


Image

Image


Image

Image

Image

Image


Just to state the obvious, I didnt build this car. I bought it as is.
I will start mucking about with it. It will be kept driveable while I put the zed together.








Other random car shots that were in the same location as the collected TA22,

FD3S race car 550hp @ wheels,

Image



Corvette, engine blew up soon after purchase, go figure...
1UZFE & GT35R would work well....

Image




To replace the love of the TA22, try a Datsun 1200 instead,
12A PP, mid mounted, flat floor = lovely car!

Since owning the Toyota, I have been driving around like a hooligan.

I was chasing a motorbike - newish CBR1000 from Kopu to Hahei turn off, before the tick tick time bomb went off, 20kms later (100m before the Whitianga town sign) the rod from cyl 1 went through both sides of the block spitting sufficient oil out to cause a fire on the turbo side.
I put the fire out with cabin mounted extinguisher and drank the three cold beers still in storage on the back seat.

The biker was in some shock as to what the f**k was following him at those speeds.

I had to laugh so as not to cry.

Engine out, new 2 piece rotors and new pads ordered, new engine arriving this week, light flywheel etc etc. It should be together by next weekend.



SO now that car 3 is down, back to car 2.
Now the GF has flown the coup, I have no more excuses.

Begin then!


Image

Image





Thanks Glenn Martin for the crane ! Enjoy the vinos and the smelly nappies!



Image



All I need in the garage that reads over 30 deg Celsius in the day



Image

Image

Image




Note the welded up water pump, it runs the housing but nothing inside. The electric pump same as the toyota will do the pumping and job of the thermostat.
New cambelt, idlers tensioners etc. Timing needs looking at later.

Image

Image

Image

Image




Apparently good for 400ps, we will see about this. Copper mix, should be driveable though.
Light Cro-mo flywheel from Japan
Replace and clean up thrust bearing and fork in gbox completed

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image




We have a problem. As per usual, change one thing buggers up everything else. Im sure I said this before. The new frame rails had a slight kink in them increasing the overall width between them. The new ones dont, so the radiator needs to be chopped and re-welded at the lower end. Thanks Hayley for the welder use approaching. More wine required.

Image


Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image




The above shots and work were completed over a period from 8am until 4am on the zed. One long drunken shift.
The toyota will absorb some time this week when all the parts turn up so wanted to fulfill the promise of getting the engine in the zed at least before going back to work Monday.

Happy New Year to all, make the most of it, life is short.

Really cant wait to see the Z finnished it looks simply amazing!

Ohhhh and thats very interesting! a mate of mine built that TA22. And was tuned by Speedworks which unfortuanatly does not have a lot of respect around Palmy as there has been plenty of average results come from there an most people that use them dont go back!
