View Full Version : johls ke70

hi all i bought this a couple of weeks ago now and have already started modding it to try and get it back to her former glory. its had a few owners and I'm sure most of you have seen it before but here it is any way.

1983 ke70 cs
NEw Paint
ma61 supra wheels?
King Springs
Monroe Shocks
Neo Taco
ghey steering wheel
Full Alarm

Fuel Pressure Reg
Front Mount Cooler - 300zx
Air Filter
S Series

when driftae71 owned it apparently it made makes 110 RWKW(145RWHP)

since i bought it i have got
-4.1 locked t series diff off ajps so u know its good...lol
-whiteline adjustable panhard rod
-trd 3 puk brass button clutch as the stock one was pretty fkt when i got it
-and i also re tinted the tail lights and blinkers
-also got a silencer for the loud canon... fk i hate cannons... they sound ghey

when i got the car there was some rust in it so i hit this with an angle grinder and have got most of it out so all i need to do it rust proof the grinded areas then bog and paint then should be all sweet to get my roady before i put my locked t series in. i am also putting in some camber adjustable control arms. not sure if they are sigma or corona but i'l find out when i put them in. will be putting my new clutch in tomorrow so i can put the gearbox back on and get that bit closer to getting her on the road. btw the one bolt up the top of the box on the drivers side is the biggest kent to get to... i think thats about it for now... will update when i do more stuff over the weekend.

future mods-
-w58 gearbox so it wont break with my clutch
-lower and harder springs and shocks allround. 6kg front 4.5kg rear
-bmw front end conversion to a 325e (grill and quaddies) prob just cut the grill and zip tie. should work hopefully.
i don't really wanna pour alot of money into this as i have a sprinter shell that I'm also sourcing parts for to do my sr+trueno+projector headlight conversion. lol i think i'v got a thing for different headlights on cars...


the last pic is front end I'm gunna put on (y)

i couldnt upload pix for some reason so heres a link to my photobucket thing.
if any mod can put these pics straight onto here feel free?[/b]

hey dude,
if you just copy the links from your photobucket account with [img] tags around them, and put them in your post. the pictures should show up proper.

21st September 2007, 06:10 PM
sweet. all pics r up now.

22nd September 2007, 08:03 PM
clutch and gearbox all in now... was done surprisingly quickly.... next up is rust proofing then repainting. has anyone else repainted little sections of their car with decent results? im getting a litre of the same colour paint as what is on the car atm and will spray it on with a gun. not after a show finish but from a far it should look pretty similar. only painting the grinded parts in the photos. any input would be great?

22nd September 2007, 08:10 PM
Probably best off to spray whole panels (ie, rear quarter, door) will give you a lot better finish. Even pro's who can flick have trouble.

14th November 2007, 02:12 PM
time for a bit of an update i think. got all rust out and am halfway through fibre glassing. then a bit oif bog then she's on the road. hopefully by the end of the month.
also i bought a quaife quick rack which should be pretty interesting. dont even know why i bought it. just wanna know what its like to drive with one.
also bought some kyb short stroke shox and 7kg+5kg ajps springs and a lock spacer. dave even gave me a free front strut brace. what a champ. and i will be getting power steering arms soon.
i think i'l wait to get the car on the road before putting all new suspension and rack and t series diff just cuz it'l look a bit more roadworthy in its current state.
next parts on the agenda will be power steering arms as mentioned, adjustable swaybars, rear strut brace and some nrca's. i think that'l do the old girl suspension wise.
i'l get some photos up once i receive my parts next week.

22nd November 2007, 02:19 PM
ok got a few parts now so i'l show ya's some pics. and also i'l show u my hachi shell i'v had for a while now. had to change my springs from 7-5 to 6-4.5 cuz ajps didnt have stock of the 7's. we'l see how she goes anway.
happy viewing (y)

22nd November 2007, 02:38 PM
good shit!

i think the front bit of the grille might stick out a bit much tho

22nd November 2007, 02:40 PM
Lol wow Andy's old 86 gets around... i cant beleive that shell is stilll going.

Both cars look good mate, and some quality parts lined up for em too

Good luck

22nd November 2007, 02:48 PM
trueno sedan-on the bmw grill? yeh that what i was thinkin would be the only problem
grant- lol yeh not exactly gets around as yet but yeh she's seen better days and hopefully some more to come. as soon as the keto stops draining my bank account

22nd November 2007, 02:56 PM
it will never stop draining the account...you watch, keto sliding is too much fun.

22nd November 2007, 07:38 PM
hahahahahaha, will the keto win his love??? lol how's the compressor goin man got the paint on yet??? lookin forward to raleigh

23rd November 2007, 12:10 AM
nah no paint yet. too humid and random rain. will be in primer before we go on sat and will finish it off on monday and tues and hopefully roady by end of the week

23rd November 2007, 06:54 PM
sic i cant wait

9th December 2007, 04:43 PM
time for a bit of an update. she's all painted and on the road now (i think i got the wrong paint tho cuz this one is really dull and flat) and also picked up an old school bride for a really good price. but on a sad note the clutch is fkt.... serves me right i suppose for gettin a second hand one so an exedy 4 puk button will most likely be on the cards with a lightened fly wheel. any who enough chit chat here are some more pics of my seat and the now rust free(ish) keto.
nexto on the agenda once clutch is fixed is cusco 2 way lsd :2thumbs:

how'd ya go?

1st April 2008, 06:41 PM
centre bearing fucked out at around 1pm. Was going really well before that though.

There are pics floating around somewhere

2nd April 2008, 12:02 AM
like in ur avatar^^^^
lol yeh was good fun but it was raining so was a bit pissed cuz i didnt really learn anything.
found out my car is way to high and soft and understeery so I'm getting cambertops swaybars all round and if that don't fix it i'l have to get new springs all round again or get coilovers.

also blew off my exhaust just after the extractors so it was a bit loud

12th May 2008, 01:57 PM
got 2 new exhausts made up. the street one is really quiet and stock looking i love it. i havnt put the track one on yet tho.
also just found out i snapped an axel at the last track day and will need to replace every uni in my tailshaft as well as the centre bearing. yay! hopefully the diff centre is still good but i'l more than likely have to re weld it
