 My 85 GTS Hatch Project Reply  Edit


My first nostalgic. Got her about a month ago..Been procastinating for so many years and finally got something..even though i wanted something older like 70's

Havent done too much to it since i got it..execpt clean up engine to look pretty replace/paint rusty brackets/bolts, replace brake lines/clutch to stainless..
Just painted bumpers to temp. clean up

Waiting on some tokico blues/dna springs i ordered..(supposed to drop 2").
Near future trueno front and lip,redline tailights, exhaust, and some jdm 15" rims

Year from now- New paint job, thinking SR20 swap

I fell in love with the stock red/maroon interior..I would love to do a swap one day

Enjoy my project and any suggestions/comments appreciated..

first day

Clean interior

Vintage plates

old engine

Cleaned up


Polished covers

Prior to prime/paint

Painted bumper

Bought these redlines on ebay(japan)..they were customed-had circlular cups inside to look like rx7 tails..poor sealing and wiring had to give em back and paid return ship out of my pocket..

More pics to come in future..thanks

So its been like 8 months since i updated (Im so lazy). Ive gone a long way in this build.. spent so much money, so much time in the garage and couldnt have done it all with the help of my brother (toyota mech) but in return im very happy how the car has turned out...Sometimes its the little things that count .

Cluster LED's..brings your interior to life at night

Chillin with another toyo

Nardi steering wheel with release and the whole nine

So i thought of going the cheap way to later realize it was not the best idea

Cutting two coils mightve looked nice but would later have too much loose spring play on the front..

What appears to be a birds nest lol

So i finally got a hold of some shoes Rota grid V's with falken ziex lets hope they dont ever break on me lol

"Lets see what dropping it would look like" lol

After installing some cheap suspension and a cheezy ebay lip

After fixing some rust on the quarter at a local shop..I then had my cuzin help paint some areas

Got a hold of some redlines and new solex locks

After painting and whole lot of wet sanding to get that orange peel out I had her detailed..she came out so purty

Got a hold of a short antenna off ebay to replace the big old one

Bolted up a exhaust tip to temporarily improve its look

My boy installing some yellow fogs i got off ebay

On my way to OSTCBPT Car show in Bridgeport CT

Few shots at the show..Came back with no trophies :/

Finally made a smart choice to get coilovers since the old cut springs were making too much noise..So i went with BC Racing ones...Adjusted the camber as much as i could to angle the wheels from rubbing the fender

As slammed..Gonna have to roll the fenders

Bro convinced me to get some headers since they were so cheap on ebay..But to find out they knock the steering knuckle..

Returned the old header..and bought an obx..to then realize it has the same problem..did my research on how to fix this issue..so i will be adding a 3/8" thick header flange as a spacer. Headers wrapped and ready

Cleaned up some surface rust the engine bay had..gave a little prime and paint..(looks sandblasted)..paint dont match up but better than how it was.

Well this is where im at with this build..Not shown but broconvinced me to removed the powerstering, AC, and cruise control...Gives a much better appearance and weight reduction..
Thinking about going straight pipe with obx twin exhaust next..Hope you enjoyed
