    Well, never really got around to moving any of my KE threads over. So here's one of them, Full build KE Sedan will be up once complete.

    So I bought this off ebay for $500, it was rough, missing bits and pieces but ran good. I reamed the front end off it, threw it on the KE sedan and imported headlights to suit. Bought a AE71 sedan for $50 and reamed that for parts too, and took the front end off and put it on the pano.

    Imported Rear windows to replace all the panels, put them in yesterday. Looks mint.

    So basically here it is:

    Engine:
    4K-c
    Aftermarket Cam
    Shaved head
    5K carb
    Stiff valve springs

    Suspension front:
    AE86 front struts
    5KG AJPS Springs
    40mm AJPS RCA
    KYB excel G short strokes
    Cusco Camber tops
    Cusco strut brace
    JDM calipers
    Vented disks

    Rear:
    In the process of re-arranging and flipping leaves
    KYB excel G shocks

    Exterior:
    Primer
    AE71 front end conversion
    JDM rear windows
    13x6 Delta mesh


    So yeah, Its a piece of shit really. I have long term plans for it, but not much at the moment. Reason I'm leaving engine until almost last is because I want to learn to slide without much power, with a decent suspension setup. I think I'd learn more that way.

    Plans:
    Wheels (Wata's, 14x8 at least.)
    Put my JDM front on it
    Convert to 4 link rear (equal length maybe)
    Engine/gbox/diff (7ag carb 16v, BT 20v or a beams 3sge)

    Pics soon

    Hang on, you swapped the Panno panels with a sedan? There different legth quarters, different bonnet, beaver, etc. Or are you a man with a good Mig and a grinder?

    Yep, swapped panelvan front panels onto my sedan, then put the Slant front onto the panelvan. To make it more confusing, I have a JDM wagon front here to go onto this car When the time is right (probably when engine conversion comes along).

    Its all interchangeable, basically the same as putting a flat front onto a slant front.

    Its amazing how simple the front end swap is between slant and panelvan fronts.

    All the bolt holes are in the right spot, the gaurds fit the doors and pillars properly, and the bonnet catch lines up without swapping it too.

    Just a pain in the arse to find good pano fronts these days.

    So basically when I smash the front in on my panno one day, a sedan flat front will bolt on. This is good news, time to start sliding it harder.

    Yes, as will a slant front.
    Pics as promised:







    Engine Bay has less wires than that now, just lots of loose ones that went to no where.

    Colour will be a stock toyota colour without the metallic. I like the look of old corollas with no metallic, with big wheels to match. Anywho, what do you all think? I know it needs to be lower...

    Haha, primer looks sick.

    Yeah, if it doesnt scrape on the majority of the bumps you hit, its not low enough.

    Update.

    Putting AE86 front struts in as we speak. Specs up front now are:

    AE86 front struts
    JDM calipers
    JDM disks
    EBC black pads
    KYB excel G shocks
    5 kg AJPS spring
    Cusco camber tops
    Cusco front strut brace
    21mm Panelvan swaybar
    Superpro Caster arm bushes
    Superpro Rack Bushes
    Superpro front Swayber bushes
    Superpro front Swaybar link bushes
    XT130 LCAs
    AJPS 40mm RCA

    Also put in a new brake master cylinder while I was at it.
    Just have to finish this off and then rip out the rear leaves to get them reset.

    Thats all for now.

    Good choice with the rear windows. Can't stand smaller windows in them but the big ones which fill out the whole space are mint.

    Please tell me you're going to be running chrome bumpers with black end caps?

    You'd make me even more happy if you say you're planning on spraying it that sexy dark brown again too. Although perhaps its just me who has a thing for that particular dark Toyota brown.

    For the moment, no. Just stock plastic bars until I find another good pair of chrome bars.
    Dark brown doesn't do it for me, it's like a silver/green/blue colour that I'll be putting on.
