My Daily...

Post by Reap3r_za » 01 Feb 2016, 13:50

Hey Guys/Gals.

This is my current daily runner.

I have a couple of project cars so needed one that's actually running :P

But... True to car enthusiast form I've started fiddling...

Did a mod with the front lights, so looks a bit meaner now. :P

I've also bought wheels (needs to be modded to fit), some sound and busy with test fitting new seats.

Issue is there is no parts for these cars, no suspension mods, no real performance mods... nothing :(

But... I'll get stuff to work :D

Anyway... Thats it for now.

Nice bud, that's an awesome motor you have there. I've never really seen someone do interesting work to a sienna, can't wait to see the end product!

Haha thanks guys.

I need to get dents removed on the bonnet and boot. And a little bit of rust removal here and there.

Also playing around with the idea of spots on the bottom of the bumper. I know the EX version or something like that came out with the OEM Spots. So will be attempting something similar.

Also want to get the oem spotlight switch for the interior still.

Here is a pic of the wheels I want to fit:

Thanks! Wheels are from a MK1 Golf if I assume correctly. So the Center bore of the wheel is a bit small. I will need to get it machined out to fit the Fiats hub. The next issue is the bolts. I will need to get variation bolts (wobble bolts). I did post in the wanted section for that :)

But ja, wheels needs a bit of a refurb, then will respray them white again. And get them fitted :D

So that is the next thing on the list to do.

*Wheels
*Clutch
*Rust Removal/Respray
*Sound
*Spotlights

need to get the wheel alignment sorted for the back.

The dude said the one side needs to be shimmed. Not sure what exactly needs to be shimmed but will take it in this weekend to be checked. Want to replace all the bushes too. so will need to order them now too.

Also What do you guys think... Keep the mirrors black or colour code white?
