Re: My Trueno GT-Apex 20v swap and resto.

Got both the arms on and lowered the car a bit more. Its a little too low for my tastes and with the current height the Watanabe's wouldnt fit at all so the Meisters have to stay on for now. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7409/16240505218_432e49ef04_c.jpg https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7397/16242253...

Re: My Trueno GT-Apex 20v swap and resto.

So I finally got some work done on the car. Only one side as it was freezing cold but enough to get a test fit done. https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8569/15772028784_cba528a794_b.jpg https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7378/15772028904_5bd3ed0cb8_b.jpg https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7433/15772028914_f2e8e...

Re: My Trueno GT-Apex 20v swap and resto.

Progress was halted for quite a while due to moving. I am now living in the UK and the car has finally arrived. Lots of projects on the to-do list: 20mm extended LCA's(In work right now, photos soon) Fender rolling and paint to fit Watanabe's 100mm T3 velocity Stacks(tricky to fit with RHD) Goodline...

Re: RWD 4age exhaust manifold required (LOCATED IN THE UK)

I'm going to have one available soon hopefully. Placing an order for a new one now. My old one fits for a 16 or 20v and was handmade by a small shop in Japan.

Re: My Trueno GT-Apex 20v swap and resto.

I forgot to add that my fenders still need to be rolled and slightly flared to fit this wheels properly. I just did a quick install to estimate what needed to be done. It will get lowered about an inch with a little more negative camber. None of this will probably happen untill it gets shipped to En...

Re: My Trueno GT-Apex 20v swap and resto.

The wheels came the day after they were ordered. Japans shipping is lightning fast...at least the domestic type. Ordered some cheap Kenda Kaisers in 185/60-14 for roughly $30(a little less since the Yen is weak right now) per tire including shipping. Sizes are 14x8.5 -13 https://farm3.staticflickr.c...
