So after my fail attempt at building a datto 180B only cause parts are harder to find than a 16year old virgin, I decided to buy my self a little rolla.
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

R15x7 +22 195/60 ( To big :bash: )

So flipped them, was just a little to much for me so sold them

Got the motherload of parcels from malaysa
-Rear lights
-Quad lights (Everything)
-New Grill
-Chrome bumpers

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
Nice Stretch

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.

Thanks mate
Well the next thing is the arch's, they are Dead. so going to cut them out
I got some flares that I would like to put on but need to do the suspension.
So been doing my research on a cheap upgrade but 90% topics bursts into a fight and don't want to look like a noob so getting no where slowly but I'll get there.

I think i got the back sorted with falcon Au Springs and hilux shocks
But the front is killing me cause I can't find AE86,Corona,T18 Struts in Perth
Engine will be 4agte when the time is right

Dark grey sounds nice, especially if your going to fit chrome onto the exterior. How about a really deep but lush red?

Also did you make those twin exhaust tips by any chance? It looks good!

Hey mate, cars cming allong nicely.
Wish I had the time and money to progress this fast haha.
As for the grey:
If you want to be turning heads a dull grey isn't the best choice. It rectracts from the car, makes everything else slightly dull.
You should be goign for something lighter, or make that shade metallic.

Well have to finish the bodywork before 8 Feb ( Was a set goal )
Then doing suspension after should be end of Feb.
Then 4K is schedule for some work, date undecided on that
So not really soon , I'm quite the perfectionest..but painting this week depending on weather and if I can decide on a colour.

The Tailights were pretty stubborn just got to make the standard holes a little wider.

Good luck finding a short shock inserts for the front with standard struts :no2:

What model hilux you stealing the shocks out of? How low are you going?
​Growing old is inevitable, growing up is optional.
If you walk away from your car and don't look back, you bought the wrong car.

Hey blzbub666 hows the white walls going mate?

Still Researching the Hilux Shocks, I know its Single Cab 4wd but not to sure if its 4th gen or 5th gen.

Front shocks are killing me and I'm not keen for the whole conversion. I'll phone around tomorrow see what I can uncover!

I'm going about 110mm - 120mm from the jack up spots( lowest part of the car ).

Cheers
