Yes, engine bay look good. Did you put the pedals in already? As for the filters I'd say K&N if using as a DD. :)

Haven't put the pedals in yet. Thanks for hooking me up (and for the trim piece too). Still gather parts for the swap (flywheel, clutch, etc).

Any idea how the "Ring Screen Elements" ( http://www.compperformancegroupstores.c ... de=Filters ) work compared to the K&N Filters? They look cooler but just wondering if they impede performance / air flow compared to the K&N style.

Updates to follow.

Ordered up a new fly wheel and clutch for my 5 speed swap. Unfortunately, the transmission I had was actually for a Datsun 240Z (I have too many projects!). I thought I kept my W50 out of my 80 Celica but this obviously wasn't the case. Anyone out there with a W50 transmission and is willing to sell it, let me know. Local pick up preferred (I'm in Long Beach, CA). Gonna check the local junk yards.

they do look cool. Have not tried it but I think it will just work fine. Using a K&N filter coz I have it if not I might gone that route. I think the drawback on these are one have to clean it more so often than with the K&N or maybe not?

Thanks for the advice Bong. Found a rebuilt W50 for a reasonable price. Hopefully I can get this thing on the road again so I can drop the suspension and get it nice and shiny again.

I'm probably going to have to trim down the stacks to fit a K&N filter. It sits very close to the wheel well. I've been checking around to see if anyone makes a 90 degree stack so I can mount the filters. We'll see.

Got the 5 speed transmission in. Added some gauges as well.

Next step is to focus on getting the car lowered and working on the interior (seats, steering wheel, maybe roll bar). Its coming along slowly but surely.

Car is coming along slowly. Got the car lowered (cut Ford Courier springs and 2" blocks in the rear). Gonna try to get some better shocks to accommodate the drop (any suggestions?). I like how the Enkei 98's fit. Gonna get the faces powder coated gold and lips polished.

Thinking about putting in a roll bar and new front seats so I can run 4 point harnesses. The car only came with lap belts and its not very safe.

Nice website. Finished the engine, paint, and interior. I'll post some pics of my progress in a few days. Been side tracked with a 1986 FJ60 project.

Next up is adding a LSD. Anyone have first hand knowledge on swapping in a 83-85 AE86 LSD into the stock Corona T232 differential?

Haven't been able to get any good pics of my RT. Just put on the Enkei 98's. Hope the image link works.

Very nice car, and that FJ looks damn good too :tu:

I'm picking up a 76 coupe tomorrow that spent some time in a barn, and was wondering if you were able to source the weatherstripping and window seals somewhere? If not do you know if the front and rear windshields can be glued in like a modern car?

On my 78 Wagon the front windshield is glued in from the factory. I couldn't find a gasket for the rear hatch. I had to go with a universal gasket I got from Amazon. I still haven't installed the window yet, so no feed back on how the gasket sits or works.. I have seen door weather stripping for the door on ebay , but there in Malaysia. The price is around $90 shipped for all 4 doors. I may get them down the line for my Wagon.

I wasn't able to find new gaskets or weather stripping. I believe they were glued in.

I asked that before I went and picked the car up, now I can see that they're glued in front and rear. I'll take it to a glass shop and have them pull the glass so I can convert the rust and get them resealed properly. Funny thing is I stopped in there the other day and their computer system could only tell what size the wiper blades were and nothing else. Thanks guys for the help, there just isn't much info out there.

Engine is 20R head from LC Engineering, Stroked 22R bottom end, with 45mm Webers. Lots of fun.

Missing a few interior parts (inner door handles, A/C controller face plate, etc) if anyone has some extras. Thanks.
