    Yeah everything is great, especially the carb.(after tuning it properly) I have so much more power and the gas mileage went up too, 500km before the gas light comes on at all.

    I thought I would share what's been happening in the Ghetto Garage lately. Rather than starting a separate build thread, I'll just throw down here.

    I've inherited a large piece of property 70 miles Northwest of Edmonton. There's about 3 miles of gravel country roads before getting to the half mile mud holed driveway down to the farm. I needed a vehicle to get me around the rough terrain, so I'm throwing together a "rally car".

    I started off with a coupe shell that was being thrown out a few years back. It had a legitimate cage in it, so I had to rescue it. It's been sitting in the corner of the shop ever since. This car has some drifting history and racing heritage, as it was built into a rally car in 1987 when it was still brand new.

    Picture time...

    It took a while to straighten and rebuild the front end


    Then it went up on it's side (didn't wanna bother rigging up a rotisserie) to get some bottom work taken care of


    Then came the make shift paint booth


    Warm and dry inside, ready for top coat

    Painting commences...it took 4 hours of non-stop spraying to coat all the interior with two coats of white.


    I was pleased with the results

    Yes, there are two different log books, as well as a letter from Toyota Canada giving permission to campaign the car in rally events. The log books show everything from Knox Mountain, to Targa NewFoundland.

    My favorite part of any build...the part where you actually get to start building, like a life sized model kit

    Rear panel fab



    Some primer and paint before installation


    and the results



    Quarter panel covers too (decided they looked better raw than painted)


    Battery relocation (an old aircraft battery box)

    Plumbing


    and wiring pretty much completed


    Sparco installed (note empty beer boxes to cover parts of the cage, etc, to avoid chips and scratches to the new paint)


    and e-brake location secured


    and a solid base built for it

    Holy crap Trevor, you do so much work.
    You make me feel bad for sitting on my couch, thinking about working on my car.
    I've been researching .... Really, I swear!

    yeah every time I go to Trevor's shop and see the progress, it really inspires me to put the extra work and fine detail into my car

    The dash always has it's own set of problems when dealing with a cage


    Had to attach the light switch to the cage so it could fit in the housing correctly


    Again, happy results oriented


    Drivetrain installation is a step in the right direction


    and of course a fuel delivery system

    (all the lines run through the interior of the car)

    More panel fab...these are for the rad cradle


    installed


    Control arms extended 1" and boxed


    Hung some suspension

    I should have taken pictures of the rally gussets between the strut tube and the spindle

    interesting heavy duty camber/castor adjusters


    Finally back on it's feet and starting to look like a car again


    Look at that ride height...and the car is almost fully laiden!
