Before buying did some research and fell inlove with the Ke70 model, watched a couple of vids on the YOUTUBE an seen Grant sliding his and that was that!
Even tho I'm not a big drift nut, I still appreciate it and see it as more an art then anything else and a loooove the styling, I'm personally more into the time attack/ A-B racing tho.
So less chit chat and lets see some pics!
This is when I purchased it for a wooooping $500, probally paid $499.99 to much but I couldnt be bothered!
Body was pretty rough
Grill was made out of chicken wire
Typical rust areas
Had a 2 tone paint that was done with aerosol cans
Had a 100" tacho to add a Extra 400 BHpowaaaaaaaa!
Started cleaning up the back
Got some new wheels ( I'm quite the wheel Whore )
R15x7 +22 195/60 ( To big )
So flipped them, was just a little to much for me so sold them
Got the motherload of parcels from malaysa
-Quad lights (Everything)
After some inspriation from the parts from maylasia carried on trucking along
Cleaned the rust off the lights, wasnt angry about this rust cause just proves they genuine !
Got some new wheels
Strato upsilon R14 x 7 +2
Wrapped them in new Pirelli tyres 185/65
The big hiccup in the conversion was finding straight and clean flat panels,looked hi and low through the wreckers with no luck but my luck changed! this is how I find my gaurds.
Woke up went for my morning piss,watched some news, jumped on Egay was looking for some new wheels cause sold them other 1's
Normally I go wheels then type my postcode in the little box to show them wheels in my city, after finding nothing, I typed in "ke70" into the search tab but was still searching only my postcode (Perth) and BAM! Left and Right Flat front gaurds NOS still in there box's! Got both of them for $150 , after I picked them up started on the front end!
Bonnet wasn't straight enough for my liking so bought a new 1.
