    Cheers for the comments again guys.


    Rob: I plan to have the engine in by 6 weeks along with all the suspension, not all DONE like(still ahve to roll arches, rinish off body work, make the 16valve actually run, get it ready for MOT etc)

    I need to get the shell stripped so you can come and get you grubby mitts dirty!!

    Ok, progress has been slow for the past 2 weeks and has set me back a bit but we are getting somewhere now!

    Got some new brake and clutch lines.



    Anyway, had to make the new holes for the Clutch Master Cylinder as the original engine uses a CABLE operated clutch but with the 4age I am using a T50 which is Hydrolic operated.

    So, as the ae86 pedal box is NOT a direct fit, I got hold of a nice AE70 pedal box as these are a direct swap for the KE70 item.

    Removing the old one is a pain in the arse and making sure the new holes are in the right place is a shit job too, esp whan your trying to be neat!



    new pedal box from AE70 - note added space for clucth M/S.



    Anyway, after measuring up the holes, I cut them out with a drill.


    While I was at it I got rid of the original bracket for the cable of the clutch as its bo longer needed and makes the engine bay look cleaner. Also, I drilled out the spot welds for the battery tray as thats going in the boot.

    So a little filler and sanding later its ready to primer!!

    so this ....


    turns to this......




    Now I need to choose a colour.

    Who votes keeping it brown?? Or a dark gunmetal grey??

    Im pretty set on brown TBH as its not a full out drift car or anthing, and then it all looks original and tidy.

    Anyway, white is too much of a contrast against brown.

    How about a off creamy white colour for the engine bay? Should go well with the poo brown.

    i think I am set on brown actually.

    Sure its not race car like, and its a bit 'boring'

    but its the original colour so will look more std then.

    Its not an all out drift car too, more a rebuild, fun at weekend car to be honest!

    I might be picking up a new project soon to. Something just like the KE except replace Toyota with 'Datsun'!

    Man this car is going to look so good when done. Brown is a winner either way. Pink would be funny tho and pretty cool (pink + brown ). Personally I think yellow would look sweet and really accentuate (sp?) the engine.

    I got the pedal box from a mate of mine in Australia, the ae70 and ke70 are more common over there, but still the pedal boxes are in high demand!
    I can be safe to know I dont have to fiddle round making the ae86 on fit into the KE now so, all good!

    And re colour, I have ordered the paint this morning......


    Its going Brown as Mr Toyota intended!

    not yet, just the engine bay for now.

    In fairness, the car is very tidy and dosent really need a spray.

    I will be doing it after the summer though, as soon, I will be flairing out the arches, and there are a few tiny repairs here and there so a full spray will be best.

    But I want to get the engine in and finished rather than have the car in peices for longer.

    I like your thinking one thing at a time and everything will get done.
    BTW Love the retro colour, suits the DX perfect

    You have PM
