Right so heres a couple of updates,

As some of you know we brought a Lifestyle Block in West Eyreton and have been here for a month now, and it has a decent sized garage for toys.

Its going to be alot of work, so in-between doing stuff around the house / unpacking / throwing stuff etc, ive been tinkering on the 120Y.

Image

Image

So far ive sold off all the suspension and just have the CA18de/t fitting kit to sell (any takers).
And ive started stripping it for easy access to fit new suspension etc without damaging too much.

Guards and bonnet off

FJ still in the hole so that had to come out

Mocking up the new front cross member from an a31 Cefiro

It actually fits quite well - not to far away from the mounts in the chassis, will need a bit of cutting still though and i got some standard S15 front struts for $1 of TM just to throw in without springs just to see how it all looks together.

Ive got ceffy front hubs etc like the ones in the pic too.

So i found a Rack - looks like it should all work properly and doesn't fowl on anything yet.

I also managed to find a rear subframe and arms to have a play around with in the rear, not much time to work on this of late due to chicken coop building.
