    74 te27 SR5 build near completion

    Had not been on here for quite some time. after 7 years of this build.....3 actually doing something, I am near completion in time for JCCS in Long Beach next month. this is a completely original 74 SR5 with a built 2TG. interior by grant donaldson of New Zealand. many emblems and garnishes are NOS OEM from spain and Japan. I have not drove it for 6 years....next weekend it comes out of the garage. cant wait.
    cheers

    Looks good so far. Will need to see more pics once it is all assembled.

    Very sharp! Nothing is going to feel better than driving it after 6 years.

    Also, watch out for the crazies on the road, they know when it's your first day out.

    I hear ya.that is my fear which is why this will be up for sale upon completion. I am holding off on final pics until it is 100% (or close) to completion. this weekend was repainting underside of hood due to paint lifting as well as engine bay touch up. have to get brake system recharged, e brake hooked up, front bumper installed as well as several interior items.....should be doable in 4 weeks.

    Nice flares. Where did you get them? Are they a universal type?

    Thanks all, appreciate the compliments. the other site....JNC, not one person has responded with any kudos.....different membership base. will post more pics after I get interior finalized and final polishing done to be ready for JCCS in Long Beach next weekend. very nervous about the judging.....first car show.

    Man, that is REALLY nice! I don't think it could be much better coming out of the showroom.

    funny you should say that. other than the engine and the rims/lowering.....that is my target. My last decision is whether to put the original stripes and SR5 decals on...I have both but am holding off.

    Awesome Te27! Congrats on the result.

    Question: I also have a 74 SR5 but it has the USDM front and rear bumpers on it. I see you've done the swap to the thinner JDM style bumpers - how hard was it? Did the bumpers bolt straight on or did you need to replace the valance?
