I would love any ideas or input form everyone, to help me out :D

So ive picked up a few new things since i last post anything. I got Ke10 front seats & twin 40 dcoe webers.

Didn't really have any issues fitting the seats, just a few new holes and they fit great!

I had to add some washers as spaces to get the ke26 rails to fit the seats.

 

post-14534-0-95800900-1387283422_thumb.jpg

 

Right where the seat rail adjustment is, and the folding part of the seat, those to parts where touching enough to stop the rail from sitting flat on the bottom of the seat.

this thing looks amazing, i have about 4 ke20 2 door sedans and as much as i love them i would love a wagon, they are so elegant and awesome and don't even get me started on the panelvans.

 

I look forward to seeing this thing build itself up, the plans sound great and it looks like a great base to work from too

Ive been spending some time on the engine lately, did the gaskets few months ago, also been having a few problems with head gasket, the original one blew a few months back, thats when i decided i should just do all the other gaskets at the same time, but i bought a cheap head gasket.......... that was a bad idea........ it didn't last long........

 

So i went to the local head place and they fixed me up with a good quality head gasket, they also gave me a few good tips for when i put it all back together :D

 

I also decided to give it a bit of clean & a coat of paint while it was out

 

Donor engine from my Ke70, 5K

I also decided to paint all the engine parts matte black for some reason.
