Ahhhh i know......it's driving me nuts too. I have SO much stuff away being worked on at the moment, waiting, waiting....

I'm going to pick up some paint stripper and supplies this arvo so I'll hit the car on the weekend, then more pictures :)

Personally, as much as I love the C110.....if I was looking for another project car I'd be looking for a KE25 Coupe. There is an amazing Orange one for sale in Tasmania at the moment. If I didn't have my C110 I'd buy it in a heart beat and build this...

Some food for thought mate ;)

Did you see the white one at classic Japan ??

My brother in law has a ke20 and a ke25.

Had to admit this one was beautiful. But I can't put a picture of it up for some reason

That two tone 510 is my old mans. The cream on brown one.

That white Rolla had a rack and pinion conversation apparently, to go along with the nice turbo upgrade

It's kinda obvious I have no idea now about corolla models :oops:

I did some more work on the weekend. I've removed most of the remaining interior now including the roof lining, dash and heater parts. I starting labeling the wiring loom and connectors to make the job much easier when it comes time to reassemble.

Image

I also had some new seals for the doors arrive

Image

and a blanking button for the cigarette lighter

Image

Had some parts come back from powder coating also, the bumper supports and the bonnet latch support

Image

Image

I've had a lot of trouble finding some new rubber seals for the outer window chrome work. I got in contact with Datsport and it turns out they have a guy who can replicate seals. I'm going to send off my old front and rear seals and he'll replicate them and then they'll be able to offer them for sale so stay posted on this! Very cool!

Also went to see a restoration specialist about my body work. I'm pretty sure I'm going to go with him as this stage. I'm hoping to strip out the rest of the car including engine and running gear and build a frame for the chassis similar to this.

Image

Going to be a long wait though, minimum 6 months before I can get the car in but that gives me plenty of time to have the car blasted and primed etc. Oh, and save money for body work!

Yes it's hot. But it's off topic. Stop distracting the guy and let him post the updates we all crave!

Happy New Year everyone! Bit of an update on the grill. So to recap I bought the grill on Yahoo Japan, from the pictures I could tell it was rusty but thought I could simply dip it, repair and then refinish it. When it arrived it had a lot more rust than I'd bargained for.

Image

Image

As you can see the base and supporting brackets are pretty much dust.

Image

Image

I drilled out the old alloy rivets and disassembled the grill. The mesh and surround are actually stainless so I had this dipped and linished ready for paint. It's not back yet though.

Image

Image

So quite a few parts were well beyond saving. I send the top section away to be dipped and zinc plated with some other stuff. It came back with quite a few small holes where the rust had taken it's toll.

Image

I filled these with lead and then rubbed the surface back flush ready for filling. No doubt once it's filled and primed it will look as good as new.

Image

Image

I had the lower section and brackets remade by a local custom body shop. He did a great job!

Image

Image

Image

Once the mesh comes back I'll rub back all parts including the plastic ends and prep them ready for priming then reassemble ready for paint. Some people are probably wondering why I bothered with this grill instead of buying a fiberglass replica, I just prefer to use as many original parts as possible and enjoy resting these old and broken parts.

Nice.

If you need some brackets made etc, I have access to a brake press and some other cool stuff at work (in the cbd).

You're more than welcome to come and make brackets etc.

Who is doing the bodywork? I have a lightly crashed bodyshell that needs a new rear beaver, two rear quarters and a boot floor.

Hey thanks for the offer! This metal work was done by Jamie at Kustom Garage in Bayswater, some awesome projects there. He doesn't do cars like ours, he's more custom stuff but he's willing to do rust replacement sections for me.

Small update, I finally finished the fuel filler cover. This turned out to be a much bigger job than I anticipated. I wanted to fit a lock with a key flap to the cover but all the local flaps just had a hole which any key would work in and no flap. After inspecting both caps and the lock mech the whole thing was quite different and required some modification.

Anyhow after much stuffing about and work with the Dremel it came up looking good!

An update, finally. Did some more work on the interior, I had the remaining blue trim pieces dyed black including the door handles and the roof trim.

Image

Image

They came up pretty nice. While they look ultra shiny in these images, they actually match the door trims quite well.

Image

Image

I also had the dash badge vacuum metalized and the I masked it with blutac and sprayed it black. That was a tough job! It's very tricky to get it looking nice.

Image

Image

The blue dash I removed was in really bad shape. It wasn't until I took it to be repaired that I saw just HOW bad it was, full of bog and spray painted.

Image

I had a pretty nice black dash I purchased a couple of years, it had no cracks but had been slightly damaged.

Image

I called the Dash Doctor to see how he was getting on and he told me that while he could probably fix the blue dash, it was going to be pricey. I ended up having to use the black dash and have it re-trimmed. It wasn't such a bad choice because on closer inspection the black dash was really brittle and would probably have cracked after a while anyhow. The end result is great, he did a fantastic job, the badge fits flush and it also has the factory speaker hole.
