  1. Ke38 Panelvan 'grace' Now With More Sr20!

    Nice work Caibs!!

    Sitting in the shed at the new house, it took me half an hour just to in mask from the paint. The exterior paint looks like crap against the bay and interior now, but it's ready to put together, I will start on the wiring first and running fuel and brake lines.

    Paint finished, it has turned out pretty good. Now to put this thing back together!!

    Paint has started, have to do in sections it's hard to paint the bars and not get the rest of the interior dusty.

    Off to get the cage, interior and engine bay painted, engine bay didnt really need it but it got burnt up where the cage got welded to the inside of the strut towers, I also welded up the holes where the brake booster, clutch master and heater lines were.

    I have had to butcher up the dash in order to fit back in around the cage, the Carlos bars have made it really hard to get it back in. It has to wedge between that and the A pillar bar for to fit in, gonna be a nightmare to fit it in without scratching the cage up once it's painted, oh well it's a race car anyway!!

    Some more welding today = both seats in

    Made a start on the pedal box mount, not sure about the design yet. I want to make it so I can adjust the position of the pedals.

    One down, one to go!!
  10. KE20 22RE??????

    I got a headache trying to read that!! Most engine conversions require a similar amount of work and mucking around in small KE20 engine bay and is going to require dollars to do it properly, if you have the cash go 3sge if you are set on a Toyota motor. More hp, more torque depending on which version you go for and it would like to rev more than a 22re. 4age would be the simple choice.

    Floor is finally in etch primer.

    Yeah it's a pretty comprehensive cage Carlos, but I have always believed you can never be too safe, so I got as many bars I could in there. i have just started on the tedious job of sanding.

    Diff hump cut out and new section tacked in, loads of clearance now. Should be the last day day of cutting out bits of the car, waiting on the weld in captive nuts so I can weld in the seat rails once that's done I can start on the pedal box, then I have to try and fit the dash back in around the roll cage.
  14. Chestikoph Sr20Det Ke55 Coupe

    Passenger side done and started on the seat rails, still have the diff hump to do, I have my new mig welder dialled now and welds look a heap better than the drivers side. If I was ever to do this again I would cut out the whole floor with the tunnel and fab it all from scratch, it's a pain to work around the existing floorpan, oh well lesson learnt for the other shell.
  15. Chestikoph Sr20Det Ke55 Coupe

    Drivers side floor and gearbox tunnel done.
