1975 Ke20 1200 Hi-Deluxe Restoration

Recommended Posts

Amazing! Especially the fabrication of the "beaver" panel. It's funny, I live in Canada, yet I've never heard that name! LOL. What tools did you use? Because I need to make a rear panel on my KE17 Sprinter, and I'm scared! Haha.

Thanks mate..... used hammer,oxyacetylene lamp(welding,cutting),rubber hammer, and some other items to cut the metal sheet

that's all...... try and try friend

Hi,

 

Nice 2 hear ur progress.

My one also havn 110 stud pattern.its match with dihutsu charade & TATA indika.

But some 20 ownrs had used 114 stud pattern rims in 20.dnt knw whether 20s havn 110 or 110 & 114 both.I wnt 2 buy mini cooper alloys for my 20.but it had 114 pattern. :down:

I thought ur one may hvn 114 pattern as YOM is 1975.

whn r u comin 2 buy the column cover?

 

Bye.

From one Sri Lankan to another; excellent work! I'm not fond of these rims on a vintage Corolla though, but that's just me! ;)

Oh thanks friend, i saw original hub caps in the pics you send

me in that orange colour 6sri immaculate deluxe.

 

anyway i'm not going to get back into hub caps..

 

but i have a question to ask.

if you know , can you please tell me where can i find that red colour spark plug cap. :scarymovie:

 

my caps are cracked and the water tries to leak into the spark plug chamber. ;)

 

And also where can i find a good quality front suspension bush set. :oops:

Because it is hard to find these bushes.

Today we changed the front tie bar bushings.

It was bushings in a town ace in there. :lmao:

it was loose and we replace them with a suitable bush set.

It was ok but they are also not corolla bushings. :hmm:

 

so it will be a great help if you can tell me something about that. :hail:

Thanks again.

 

will throw up as soon some pics of the whether strip as you asked

 

bye
