Car 2

Postby Abe Cruz » Sat Sep 05, 2015 12:05 am

1984 missile project.

Why a missile? Because I'll be doing this on a budget and it's my work I guess. Just want to beat on this car as hard as everyone else does and well, whatever happens, happens.

Been a member since 2005, mostly purchased a few things here and there and sold some stuff, first time posting on the build thread but here goes nothing.

Little story behind it.

Got my 1984 sr5 in 2010 and ran awful, but still ran and drove....awful tho. Drove it around for a bit as a dd and decided to try and fix it, other things came up and then it sat around for a while with lots of missing parts.

Trying to make it to asb 15 so ill see how well this goes.

Needs motor, harness, lots of extras and detail stuff to get it to even drive. This is going to be a "fun" build. Fun to bash with when its "done".

Trying to make it a "budget build" using some leftover parts off my other 86 thus making it a "missile" and practical beater....

Image

Image

Image

Parts I've been sitting on for some time is these Swifts springs I got back in 2010, 6kg fronts, 4.5kg rears. Going to try the agx because its cheap and I've been curious about them.
I also have Battle VersionNRCA to use, need t3 camber tops to purchase and KYB agx sw20 front shock inserts.

I have T3 traction brackets, bv lateral bar, stock 4 link w/ poly bushings and gts rear w/ a loud 4.30 and a weir spool to use the zenki axles.
Most of the parts I'm going to use are my old parts out of my 86 hachi and are ready to go a few more rounds. Good quality parts is something you cant beat.

Good luck, man. Looks like it's gonna be a while before it's gonna be finished unless you are SuperBuilder :lol:

So asb15 and my missle didn't happen, that sh!+ got expensive really quick and just had a lot to do for a missle to survive an event like that.

Going to slow it down and knock this out when I can and get a chance to do some work on it...but still keep it "missile". Probably just going to do things with whatever little money I have so definitely keep it a budget and mild build.

How I like to start when I work on this missle.
Image

Healthy breakfasts, this is how I roll!
Image

My old ae101 hope can still be salvageable. Short block going to be used, 16v head and itbs.
Image

Just this sucker is getting used. Head with cams, gears, valves is for sale. Just sayin'
Image

My Polish buddy , Jeff, going to give me a hand with the engine build. Homeboi gets down with engines so someone that's local and I can trust with the work.
Image

Image

Image

Image

Marking everything just to be on the safe side.
Image

Ugly, I know. And I put a good beating on this.
Image

Cleaned the pistons up a bit to mark them. Won't be using the pistons but good for practice.
Image

Image

This is what happened after doing hot laps on HTM.
Image

Hope I can still use the crank. I'll find out after I take it to the machine shop...
Image

Image

Con rods look fine.
Image

This however, not so fine.
Image

The springs are already on the missle, just got some sw20 front kyb agx shocks in the mail along with t3 strut spacers and godspeed sway bars that will be getting installed. Springs not to stiff so sways and maybe a few extra bars should help stiffen the ride to try and match my other hachi project. The sr20 corolla has Parts Shop Max Pro Coilovers and I love that suspension setup. This project is more of a budget build so a few new bushings and new parts will help keep this 84 corolla stay sturdy.
Image

I'll STFU and post pics.
Image

Image

Image

Shocks came in while I was working on missle :D
Image

Image

Suspension stuff is out and so is the subframe.
Image

Image

Old and new. Kyb agx sw20 front shock setup. Been curious about these, now im about to find out if I like them or not.
Image

Not so gangster rolling on cut springs and blown shocks. Previous owners work.
Image

Cleaned and rattle canned, also did a clear coat. Not a fan of the gunk this 84 has been collecting.
Image

T3 strut tube spacers
Image

Image

KYB part number - 765015
Image

How the settings get explained lol :lol:
Image

Always wondered how these got adjusted. Never got a chance to look at these really close.
Image

One down, one more to go. Going to use my sr corollas Battle Version NRCA and purchase the t3 camber plates.
Image

Image

Godspeed sways. Cant beat the price and just a solid metal....I hope. I'll find out how well these hold up come track day.
Image

Clean clean clean, sounds like a hassle and work but makes working on a car a lot easier a much nicer.
Image

Comparison - sr5 and Godspeed front sways
Image

Image

Image

Image

Yup, 7 11 diet.
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Bout to go HAM on this!
Image

Image

Got help from the homies, Purple Power and brush. They get down af! :D
Image

Image

Goint to scuff and paint also. Left some bolts and nuts in the chemical cleaning bucket so ill check that out when I get closer to assemble everything.

Wanted to get more done and then post but whatever. Much needed bushings and got a few more needed parts because this is the easy and cheap stuff that doesn't cost a lot.

Last I left off on the subframe getting cleaned. Just had to have one before starting...
Image

Image

Scuffed and got it ready. Can't get enough of this color, VHT Black Pearl.
Image

Just paint
Image

And after clear coat
Image

Image

No clear coat.
Image

After clear coat. Love how it comes out after.
Image

Image

Sad looking parts
Image

Did some cleaning and ran out of daylight. I'm sure lots of guys can relate, no guyrage makes it a bit hard.
Image

When parts arrive.
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

More cleaning.
Image

Really like how these came out.
Image

Image

Image

Getting around to this but it'll be a white bay when done.
Image

Seen people burn the old bushings off so I figure I'd try it too. Got it down on the 2nd lca and had less of a mess to clean.
Image

Just heat it up enough until you hear it about to cook, then hit it against something a bit elevated. I used a cinder block.
Image

Doesn't make much of a mess this way. You can see the first lca bushing on the ground and wow it leaves a bad smell.
Image

Image

Ready to prep now that the old ball joints and bushings are out.
Image

One coat done and I ran out of paint and sunlight.
Image

Image

Hopefully I can get more done and have things assembled next post.

Just got a new job about 3 weeks ago so I wont be going any events for a while. Need to put a motor together for this thing also so might be a another month or two before this thing is ready to hit the track and the engine parts is what's going to cost the most. And my diff has a lot of play so I'll need a rebuild and probably new r&p so maybe a 4.5 or 4.7 might be getting installed

Well...... here's a little more.

And my missle project continues!.....ish.
Image
Image

Jason Kim of Rival Auto Works helped me acquire some parts for my missle. Thanks Jason! Any help is greatly appreciated :D
Image
Image

Jason plying around with some 2jz lol.
Image

Lcas with new bushings, b joints and sway links.
Image

Going to try these out. From what I know, Mahle bought out DANA, DANA was making pistons for Perfect Circle and so on. Best bang for the buck from what I've heard so lets see if this motor goes bang or not. One way to really find out though.
- "Whatever happens, happens".
Image
Image
Image

Yup. I was told about some event for 1/22/16, I'd like to attend but this missle project wont be running by then from the looks of things. Fml lol.
Running on hopes and dreams.
Image

Things that are on their way are D-Mac and HKS parts.

I'll try to update this at the end of Jan.

Bit of an update, working lot so not much progress on missle hachi.
A few pics and parts that came in, also updated my parts list in my third post on here.

Going to relocate the battery so this is getting cleaned up a little and the sr5 coolant reservoir, will be using a gt-s reservoir.
Image
Image
Image
Image

Also cleaned up the tranny tunnel a little. No before pic is needed, I'm sure most people can relate to a dirty tranny tunnel and having debris fall on their faces lol.
Image

Image
Image

Little story behind this.
When I first got my first ae86, I was looking for an exhaust that wasn't too flashy or too loud. I remember people talk about the HKS sport and before I knew it I wanted one, this was around 2005. A friend also told me about the Fujitsubo Legalis R. It was another exhaust that wasn't too loud nor too flashy and I also thought that the Legalis R was way cooler at the time because not a lot of peeps had one and wasn't as common. I got the Fujitsubo. Years went by and I still wanted the HKS Sport. I Finally got one!
Image
Image
Image
Image

More work...
Image
Image

Beautiful parts.
Image
Image
Image
Image

Some SQ-engineering parts arrived.... all the way from Australia!
Image
Image

Image

Meet the homies, Aisin, Raybrig, Nardi. We go way back.
Extra pair of Raybrigs for the sr86 that'll be in the works in the next few months.
Image
Image
Image

Continue cleaning and playing with a little bondo.
Image
Image
Image


I'll add more pics later ;)

Still waiting on parts but this is how bae86 is coming along.
Now Im not so sure when it'll be running but I'm itching to go do skids with the homies 8-)

Got the front suspension together for the most part. The Front ae86 Godspeed sway bar fit really well so my guess is that the Rear Godspeed sway bar will work just fine, and it came with new bushings for front and rear. Its always awesome when stuff works and fits the first time around!
Image
Image
Image

Hung out here for a bit.... actually started to almost take a nap. The sun started to whoop my a s s for a bit. Much love for the weather in S.D. and wouldn't have it any other way!
Image
Image

Brake lines got cleaned and got installed along w/ a new clutch master.
Image
Image
Image

Took out the proportion valve to clean it a bit since I didn't do that earlier because I'm smart like that....
Also installed the subframe and started to assemble the goods.
Image
Image

Image

:D
Image
Image
Image

Ae86 wrenchathon:
My idea of a wrenchathon is to keep going until I run out of daylight or out of car parts. Sometimes i'll run out of both but I push until i cant push no more!
Image
Image

Old bushings, time to kick the bucket.
Image

Image
Image

Teaser pic with the stock sr5 wicked sick wheels lol.
Image


A quick look at the pics I saw on the craigslist ad. Omg, not sure what I was thinking :oops: :oops: :oops:
Image Image Image Image

When I went to pick it up I decided to bring my spare wheels just in case. Lets just say those are the same wheels I'll be using on the car when its ready to hit the track!
Image
Image
Image
Image


Image

till next time....

Got a bit busy helping out a friend and things are taking a bit long but here is a quick update.

My boi Jesus Magana w/ the white RX7 made it out to Just Drift Top Drift limited rd1 and that was time consuming in itself.

Quick snap from AMDRIFT.COM. Car took a while to get sorted as it was having fuel/bogging issues but once that was taken care of it drove way better.
Image

On the left is the ae101 itbs and the final part that is needed to complete the 16v head AND on the right is a snail and pretty much the reason this missile project is going to take its sweet time now..... much more than it was already taking. Just want to get back to driving my old G ride but I'll post pics of that one as well.
Image

Took this lil guy to Pure Turbos in Oceanside to get rebuilt. Still only a gt25x but if I cant drive with the new power upgrade......then i suck! lol. Seriously, still need to try and keep pushing myself and I haven't driven the Red corolla in almost 2 years.....fml.
Image

Filter is a must when running open itbs but it looks soooooo sick running them without filters! :D
Image

Fitting the velocity stacks, filter adapter and t3 16v adapter to 20v itbs
Image
Visually seeing how the T3 ITB adapter will look of course.
Image

HKS valve springs, just a bit more than OEM but no race engine is getting put together here. Just need something that can take some abuse
Image
Image

Finally got another pair of Toyota pedals! love these things and now both cars can have the same :D
Image
Got the pedal a looooong time ago, probably 2011 but I had a feeling it would get put to use.
Image

Booster got a new paint paint job, wont post before pics because its too fugly.
Image

Dmac offset rack spacers for my aw11 rack....... having change of plans and won't be using it on Missile 8-)
Image
Image

Box of goodies for the short block.
Image
Image
Image

High comp short block itself.
Image
Parts have been stored away for some time now, thanks to Jeff for the spare motor parts.
Image
Con rods
Image

Big port 16v. Hopefully the valve guides are in good shape but "oh well...whatever happens, happens."
Image

I'll try to take better pics but for the mean time, I think I'll be "STREET SHARKIN' " by the end of May.

Deuces ;)

Game plan now is to get my 84 missile hachi on the ground and rolling so I can get back to driving.

Soooo here's the current update on the 84.

Got some gt-s petrol lines from a buddy of mine a while back, went to the junky to get a new thread to fix it so yeah....
Image
Image
And its fixed.
Image

OMG taking off the paint on this was NOT easy. For this being a 32 year old car the paint put up a good fight lol.
Image
Image
Image
Using the VHT Black Pearl paint :D
Image

Got some goodies from a fellow member on here, thanks Ron, and found my old dust shield so now I have a complete set of rear dics brakes!
Image

Installed my booster and master, hooked up the new lines and got some Hawk brake pads and Centric rotors in the mail.
Image
Image
Image

Probably the best thing i decided to do on this car and will continue to do is to clean as many bolts and nuts that i can, and send them to get plated.
I dont like rusty bolts and nuts sooooo this happened :D
Image
Nice little touch
Image
Image

In a bro sort of voice - *Yeah bruh, long travel bruh.
Image
Lil homie came out and sold the next day.
Image

FML
Image
Much better. Still needs work but better
Image

And made room so these trannys went to the storage lol
Image

Next is:
- install petrol lines
- put my old spool diff together and install
- buy front tires
- buy rear shocks
- install the old ps rack to move it around
- and move it to storage for the time being

Thank you! When I cleaned the nuts and bolts w/ my wire brush and Purple Power they came out really nice.

I placed them in the engine bay and over a few weeks they start getting surface rust and I didnt like that at all, i thought about painting them but I didn't think that would last soooooo, I looked around, found a local place that would do the plating and voila, now its sorta addicting tho lol :D

I went to the junk yard and got some extra nuts and bolts for my other car. I just need to get this car rolling and movable to make room for the other one. I'll try and do a quick build and put together on that one.
