Cheap way to get that lip – use one off a Mk1 Golf GTi.

Great car! Credit to your grandfather for looking after it so well, and to you for taking it on and improving it. How did you end up with that combination of springs and shocks?!

Bodywork looks very good, always the most important thing on an old Japanese car.

thanks! and for the tip!!!

the combination is greeeeeat! firm and good both in front and rear! handles great in corners.... but do anyone know what steering wheel I could use , a bit smaller , and not so thin! it hurts when driving long and active in corners....

and since it's a european car , it has the 18R engine , and I have polished the head cover , the fuel pump , and repainted the air filter box and the radiator.


plans are : make 2" exhaust , get recaro seats from Opel Manta B and make them look just like the original toyota seats... to sit better! but I need tip what steering wheel to use , that is good - and looks good in the car(colours etc)

I agree--oldschool dished wheels look AMAZING on these cars with a nice drop.
