    Hi everyone, thought it would be a good idea to start a build thread on here...

    Bought this last year for $180 with stuffed seats, broken window and free rust... a few dollars later I'd fixed those and put 12months rego on.

    Specs at the moment are

    Suspension
    -Front
    XT130 Struts, Tie rods and twin piston brakes
    XT130 LCAs
    ST185 KYB Excell G shocks with spacer
    AJPS 6kg AE86 Front springs (was after 7kg and a spring to suit the corona spring perch and ke70 top but AJPS = fail)

    -Rear
    AJPS 5kg Rear springs
    Standard monroe GT gas rear shocks

    -Interior
    OBX Daytona fixed back bucket seat welded onto standard rails
    MOMO "race" steering wheel
    Tacho Dash

    -Wheels
    Front - SSR Mk1s 14x6.5
    Rear - SSR Mk1s 14x7
    all with mix-matched tyres...

    -Engine
    Standard 4k putting out about 2 and a half KW
    (Have a wrecked ae92 sx with a strong smallport 4age sitting in my driveway with a bent chassis-just waiting on funds to get all the other parts to put it in the KE70)

    Pics (hope these pics work)

    Future plans are...
    Finish/Start smallport 4age conversion
    Strip Interior and remove all sound deadening
    Purchase a full cage & 5 pt harness
    Front strut brace
    Get some decent shocks for the rear
    Fit semi slick tyres
    Thrash it around the track till it dies.

    Love any comments/feedback
    -Dave

    Full cage to buy would be pretty expensive? Unless you know someone that can make one?
