    The car is road registered, Already got it put in my name with fresh rego last. I will be keeping it this way....... I have been enjoying daily driving the carfor the past 3 months, but now its off the road and work has started.
    The front guards will have a flare, and the rear wheel arches will be cut and welded up to look like a normal car wheel arch... Also will have a flare.....

    With my LCA's (lower control arms) I can run upto 60mm extra track at the front, and will have some pretty aggressive neg camber....

    I have the steering pieces worked out now, so for those interested, this is what I am using....

    I am retaining the Peugeot 504 steering rack, so all this will bolt straight up to it...




    THE FINISHED MODIFIED LCA's - I have used McGill Motorsport rose joints from Ireland

    Here is a pic of the factory 504 drivers side steering linkage. I have already pressed the bush out in this pic, as it was stuffed. I was going to press in a new bush, and use this setup, but this is a pretty old fashioned style linkage, so I decided I would modify it to something to give a sharper steering feel.









    So, I did this:




    I have cut the eye off, so I can weld on a threaded section so I could directly screw on a Toyota rack end.



    Here is the modified rack end:

    Rack side:



    Toyota Rack end side:



    (Threaded section with locking washer welded on)

    Not the prettiest thing, but confident it's strong and will do the job well

    Fitted up all the bits and pieces I've been working on, and very happy so far with the results....

    All my planning has paid off, as my setup has heaps of lock, as you can see....











    Here is a pic of the top plate. Amazingly, 2/3 of the camber top plate bolts lined up EXACTLY with the factory Peugeot holes. The 3rd hole, I welded up and redrilled.




    Steering is done, coilover struts are in, swaybar links done, braided brake lines done.....

    Just got the adjustable castor rods/arms left to work out, and then the front is done.

    I have finished the front end now.

    I made up the castor arms. I will be make up some new ADJUSTABLE arms later on, but these will do for now.

    I have used the Peugeot castor rods and modified the ends to suit the Toyota LCA.... The existing rod at the end I have modified was 16mm. The holes for the castor rod are 10mm. The hole are drilled IN the existing rod and I have welded on the extra bracing to be safe. The bracing is 6mm steel plate.








    Here is one of the finished Castor arms:

    To give you an idea, here is a factory Toyota Castor arm compared to modified Peugeot arm.... As you can see, Toyota ones are adjustable from factory, 504 ones are not.

    I finished off the front end. I am very happy with how its turned out. Although, this is as low as these coilovers go, so I will need to shorten them further, but that can wait untill later when I fine tune everything when everything is complete)
