Ke10 Happened Again.


Recommended Posts

So!.... I've had this for a while. A mate of mine said he saw an old corolla his buddy posted and thought I might be interested. Called him and turned out to be a 67' ke10! ????. Long story short, picked it up for a steal and took it to the missus brothers place to store it.


I had originally bought the car to use as a doner for my blue 70' ke11 but turns out its a very very straight shell with the normal rust in the spare wheel well and a few tiny spots up front in the sils in front of the door, besides that, I'm stoked! It also has ae86 struts and hubs in there somehow too. A few owners before me has a turbo ca18 in it so it's got a big trans tunnel which suits my plans perfectly!


Yesterday after a few months sitting under a tarp, I dragged the missus over to help me start paint stripping the rear guards. Turned out sweet!


Here's what's happened so far..

Yo Matt, instead of using shitty paint stripper head to bunnings and pick up a 'Strip it disk' for a grinder. Basically looks like a round kitchen sponge. Strips paint in seconds and leaves the panel dead smooth and doesn't heat it up if you don't push hard.. I did my entire celica with one and couldn't be happier. Was like $13

More progress today on ke10 v2.


It was windy as hell so I didn't get to do more body work as I can't paint outside. So I decided to pull apart the blue car more. Now the motor and box are out!


Now to start pulling down the motor to give it a freshen up and some more goodies before going into the new shell for mock up ????
