    hey people..

    I'm Richie and i used to have a ae71 but it had heaps of rust (surprise surprise).. so i was going to re-shell it, but then i decided if im goin to do it again it may as well be in a car that i really like....so when this popped up last week i thought, why not.... ill never get a te27 anyway...

    it came with no motor, just a rolling shell.. but thats good as i have a nice 4age waiting to go in, 86 struts, t series rear end, 15x8 rims all round, along with a heap of other stuff to make it work....

    i like driving up in the hills so this will be built up for a bit of grip work and might even look into racing in proper hill climbs.

    so the plans in summary are:
    strip it back..
    fix up the few rust spots..
    paint it.. I'm thinking a bright orange or maybe british racing green
    4age it..
    convert it to 114.3 all round..
    cage it..
    drive it..

    also to keep it period correct (to a point) i may also convert the 4age to twin carbies.. so if you got some lying around, give me a yell!!

    let me know what ya'll think..

    so enough of me talking, here's some pics..

    yo..

    bringing this back from the dead.. i been pretty dam slack lately.. only just getting back into it, also having a 10 day easter long weekend, i need to do something, right??

    Anyway I cut the spring perches off me T series and threw her under the rear end and the result is about three inches extra track per side so im thinkin i might need some CYB 86 flares (or whatever they are) cause i'd doubt te27 flares will cover that shit..




    also this wont mean much to many on here but i had to pretty much move the entire pedal assembly to the right 150mm just to fit a firewall mounted booster then after doing that decided it would be easier to also make up a pedal box from scratch.. Cause these old ass cars dont come with hydro clutches and its almost impossible to get a te27 pedal box locally..



    because i wanted the engine bay to look a LITTLE period correct, the efi 4age wasnt goint to cut it, also a 2/3t is just tooooo old school for me.. so some twin webber 45's came up a a great price that were suited for a 2tg so we'll see how they go on a 4ag.. also at the same time dimitri had a redline adaptor for these carbs so i got that too, slapped 'em on an what do you know it looks like a motor again..



    And finally i got off my ass and shortened my 86 struts for some coilovers, shortened them 40 mm added a 20mm spacer, just gotta get a coilover kit now.... anyone else run ae92 trd yellow shocks?? what do you reckon about 'em??



    let us know what ya'll think..

    Richie..

    hey is the ke25 an aussie delivered model? you mentioned you would never get a te27 but the only difference there i think is a 2t engine and its a te27. seems you have a jap shell?? i only ever see the somewhat ugly ke20's around which have weird looking rear ends.
    gl with the build looks great, im thinking of getting one of these eh.
