    Hows it going?!

    My name is Jimmy and I'm from Auckland.

    Have a KE35 that is currently in progress of converting to a 4AGE.

    Will start a build thread up soon.

    Cheers!

    Im not that far into it man, literally just picked up and dropped the engine in last week to see how it would sit, and it looks good so far!

    In the next month I will have the entire driveline installed, as well as new suspension all round.

    I a, however, looking for someone who can make me some custom headers and a full car re-wire!

    Do you happen to know of anyone man?

    Here is a link to a few pics of my car as it is!

    Awesome on the AE85's bro! Sounds like you've got a few! Where is a cheap place to pick up a new AE86/85 waterpump?

    Where in Hamilton are you? I sometimes drive down to Te Kuiti to visit the olds now and then! haha


    Cheers,

    Jimmy!

    I'm scott and I'm in South Auckland
    I've had my ae85 notch levin for ~10 years now, been off the road for 4...
    Bought it off my mother in law of all people.
    Small port is in the build, everything is long term due to family, work, study, life in general.

    Sounds a bit like my story bro, I use to live in Papakura and got my notchback in 2003 haha
    Post up some pics man! Keen to check it out


    Jimmy, you KE looks pretty boss. My flat mates got one too with a 20v 4age in it. Full cage yada yada. The only place I know that will do a guaranteed good job is Tama Autos in west Auckland. Reo is the guru of old school Toyota man, might pay to get a hold of him. Just search Tama Autos on google and it will give you a contact number.

    He is use to wiring up 4ages so will be able to get it done fast and it wont fail.

    my old dog
    I recognise your cars - I've seen them both over the years driving on the motorway heading north from Papakura.
    Were you trying to sell the lift back at one stage?

    last 2 shots are trying my brothers old 14x8 steels on. from memory the tyres were 185/45R14 or something ridiculously small.
    sitting higher than normal due to no weight - whole drivetrain/fuel tank out, ready to swap in the small port & efi tank once i have rebuilt it all.
