    Default Joe's Other Beater



    heres the basics, sold my old truck, family wanted me to obtain another truck with a auto, got this gem for 800 dollars, month later some bolts on the timing cover backed out and a lil starvation gave me a slight rod knock.

    so the plan is to put a used mid milage engine i got in and fix other stuff while its sitting.

    the other stuff includes to fix or replace the following on this list

    2 rear wheels have a slight lip bend(enough that im loosing air over the course of a week)
    kickdown cable
    carpet
    mirrors
    corner lights and bumper lights
    bumper
    swap guage clusters
    redo stereo
    interior redo (in progress)

    the truck came with

    the truck is already lowered 3inches all around
    18x 7.5 centerlines
    redicoulsly loud flowmaster exaust, i plan to eventaully make it quieter
    power steering and frost bite a/c

    i work on the truck when theres not much to do with the celica or corolla.

    alright on 6/6/09 heres where im at

    sent money to P.O. for duplicate title, due to the previous title got misplaced by my folks before i got to switch it over.

    i have the donor engine that is currently fuel injected but im going to convert it to carb, and replace nessasary seals and gaskets.

    worked a lil on the interior.

    1st i had no carpet and bare metal floor so, 30 dollars later i had house floor insulation and 30 or so feet of indoor/outdoor gray carpet. heres how it looks as of now with my spare 3rd gen seats.

    bare floor


    house floor insulation, also used this as a template to cut the carpet.


    carpet


    carpet and gt-s seat

    yes, low pile gray indoor/outdoor carpet so its made to withstand extream temps and moisture

    plus with all that carpet and insulation should make a quiet cab

    got a call from the P.O. today i should have a title at my door by this week

    as far as the interor goes i was debating putting 6x9s in the doors for midbass purposes like i did on my last truck. because i picked up some never used explode 3 or 4 ways that i may use for that. also i think im going to mount a 8 inch, self powered bazoka tube between the seats and mabye do a custom armrest around it. ive figured out several simple ways to do it. Tthe simplest was to have the tube between the seats upside down so that the flat part is pointed up, then just find a padded armrest from a car or truck and mount it via hinges.

    i found a complete engine for 50 bucks with either a BHG or chain guides broke, i have 3 spare heads and a broken timing chain guide engine kit with all new seals and gaskets


    the other motor i bought looks like the rings are worn and so is the cylinder bore.

    i did get another set of wheels with 205/50/16s because the 2 of the 18s are cracked.

    also i have a full center console, a header, weber 32/36 and some other goodies as well.

    Nice. One thing I noticed, you seem to be good at finding things cheap, but for this truck it seems like you spent alot getting busted motors. Hope you dont have to worry about it again
