View Full Version : My KE70 Project

22nd June 2006, 11:51 AM
Hey everyone... Just bought this KE70 on the weekend. It's in pretty good nick mechanically (gotta love those "little old ladies") http://www.ae86drivingclub.com.au/forums/emoticons/smile.gif

It's def gonna be a fun project coz since buying it we've realised that it's got the later model front end on it (like the KE71 I think)...

So for starters I'm looking for a KE70 (earlier) front end for it before i worry bout fixing the paint up (if anyone can help me with finding new guards, bar etc... that would be fantastic)

In the meantime I'm def gonna lower it... put the wheels off my old corona on it (theyre 14" it's got 13" on it now otherwise same wheels) until I can get a nice set of mags.

Engine wise I'm thinking putting a 4AGTE (I think that's rite) in it... same as what my bf's putting in his Sprinter.

Lotta work ahead of me.... any ideas appreciated! http://www.ae86drivingclub.com.au/forums/emoticons/biggrin.gif

Very clean ke70. if your gona change the lights you should do what driftae86 did with his. i had thoughts of doing this to my ae71 at the start of this year, but got other things im worried about now.

good luck with the project
