Seperated body from chassis,moved chassis into next door.

Stripped off the shocks,sway bar,bump stops.then disassembled front suspension,grinded LCA flat for bag mount,cut off bumpstops bracket thingy.

have done 1 side,just need to do the other.

LCA now hits on motor x-member so need to remove LCA again and notch for clearance.

Swschz
09-27-2009, 10:13 PM
Hey,i ahd a look through all my pics of the Daily,and i dont have any sorry.i swapped out the stock navara ones for some terrano ones pretty early on

easiest would be to go to www.trademe.co.nz and search for navara.

i bought it as a cab and chassis so no interior.

Swschz
10-03-2009, 10:34 PM

No,its long enough as it is.measures up to about 5.0m when fully together and i plan to drive/drag this as often as i can.This aint no trailer queen/weekend toy.

i like th short tray :dathumb:

edit: i think theres a slight confusion here,that tray is a double cab tray,not a reg cab shorty.

Thanks,Ive got a 4wd one aswell,it has the flush besides and allows me to use the taller taillights so i can have some aftermarket lights etc.

i'm sure with them being everywhere you're accustomed to the look of the short trays, to me(since i dont see one everyday) theyre just too short. if in front of the wheel there was some length of bed i think it would look better. i never liked the frontier or tacoma crew cabs for that reason. do you have a picture of the 4wd one?it just doesnt have the indent on the sides?

what motor are you using?

No pics of the 4wd deck.its upside down sitting on my container

Yea its a Toyota Toyoace they call them.

Have seen them in a Triple cab config(popular with the roadworker crews) . It runs a 2.8 diesel non turbo

As you can tell,we do things diff in NZ :thumb:

The white truck is rather sad at the moment.Did buy some big brake rotors for the front today,to compliment the 4 pot Skyline Calipers and Toyota Hubs.

Bought a pair of rear doors complete for $50 each,a score in my book since they are getting hard to find.

Not 100% sure on the angle your coming from, but if you mean "going on" as in fitting these...its a direct bolt on job to the HB Spindle. Bolt centres are 100mm...thank you Nissan.

The observant ones may have noticed them in this pic.

well we can get cars send from the us for around $2000au maybe a bit more so i guess it wouldn't be that much more to send things back to the us of a and dual cabs ..not crewcabs is what their called here have a look on australian ebay cause their always heaps around and not that expensive for a full truck and you also have the bonus off the dollar difference ....:)

except it has to go through customs and be converted to us standards as far as headlamps , emmisions etc, so that 2k could quickly turn to 10k. better to send a container full of cabs , but you wont have many buyers i think

Cool to see some progress there Ueli. hope to see some more progress soon on this bad boy.

Yeah sending Cabs over would be the best way, you would be best to send a selection of navara's hilux's and b series over i think as opposed to sending one type. The only thing you would have to change i think is a rear cab mount on the chassis. if you were serious about getting one give Steve at kiwishipping an e-mail and see what he can do.

Ok,what little birdie whispered in your ear to ask that the week i do some work on it???

Heres a few snaps to a sneak peak of whats going on.

This one you guys might not understand.....its my double cab standing on the rear window,nose sky high,and that is a modified brace to give clearance to the driveshaft,chopped about 30mm off the brace and welded some 4mm plate in there.
http://i987.photobucket.com/albums/ae357/UeliB/My%20truck/DSC04587a.jpg

This is the transition between the stock chassis rail and the new narrow rails I made.Capped off because a point looks shit, we decieded.
http://i987.photobucket.com/albums/ae357/UeliB/My%20truck/DSC04590a.jpg

Hanger bearing Crossmember modified to allow 2.5" exhaust tubing to run through. A muffler will sit between that cross member and the one under the gearbox. Cutouts suited to the muffler.
http://i987.photobucket.com/albums/ae357/UeliB/My%20truck/DSC04591a.jpg

Modified crossmember for exhaust.We gusseted this one because there is more structual intergrity to this one.
http://i987.photobucket.com/albums/ae357/UeliB/My%20truck/DSC04592a.jpg

Removable gearbox crossmember modified for exhaust,slightly trimmed
http://i987.photobucket.com/albums/ae357/UeliB/My%20truck/DSC04598a.jpg

And welded a 10mm thick plate in there to replace the strength that was lost by cutting the cross member out.
http://i987.photobucket.com/albums/ae357/UeliB/My%20truck/DSC04599a.jpg

Work in progress, axle tabs being set up.84-88 Yota axle.narrower than stock HB.Will have disc brakes.

Wooow! Awesome job dude! Can not wait to see it finished! What are your plans for the motor?

what the brother said here VVV


i belive it is a ca18det i was chatting to him about motors the other day

correct, rebuilt ca something, 5 speed HB g/box and some goodies at some point, build the darn thing before i worry about the go go juice.

why is the frame that color? it looks awesome is it just coated in oil to stop rust?

because thats the natural colour of steel....

its just stripped back to clean steel for the show. chassis colour...or any colour undecided for all of the project.

Cheers all

next step is to sort out the engine bay, mount intercooler, mount bigger turbo, make intake and exhaust manifolds, plumb intercooler and intake etc, mount oil cooler,and possible filter relocation.

Then onto building the firewall and make the steering work/ pedals / heater box....

But first I need more money......

hows this goin dude


Work has slowed right down. Im currently on the search for a building to shift into so between that and contracting 4 days a week to a company I dont get alot of time. Things will change soon though and il be back into it a bit more.


After the show it went to at the end of January work slowed down. We had booked it in with a friend down the road to get all the Go hard turbo/engine shit sorted.
He was going to take care of the turbo Manifold, Intercooler piping and build a new intake plenum which would sit lower to clear the hood.
swschz was going to buy a turbo off a guy and right at the last minute the dude backed out, so without that a big chunk of fab cant be done. We have now decided to pull the plug on the engine work as the guy is renovating his place and is moving town soon so we dont want a rush job.

Ueli has been collecting parts since the show. He brought a Aluminium Fuel Cell, Blitz Blow off valve, a pair of ss6 slams for the rear. A toyota 1uzfe throttle body for the new plenum which I have had machined down and a sweet Fram pod filter.
Hes on the hunt for another big turbo so we can get it mounted.

Sorry about the huge update and lack of photos
Im currently mounting the intercooler behind the grill and patching some of the sheetmetal back in around it to make a nice tight fit.

I will get some photos up during the week but heres a couple I took a month ago before it went into the garage.

05-01-2011, 05:33 AM
tyrsmoke- its a DET. it is turbo.

97xenissan- cheers. as Matt said. Things have slowed down alot recently.I had a guy lined up to supply and mount a turbo, but it fell through, so ive taken a step back whilst i source another turbo and find someone else to make some manifolds etc.

Last I saw, Matt was mounting the intercooler so it fits behind the stock grill, and in front of the stock radiator via some trick bracketry. Scored a pair of 3 Gal Aluminum air tanks to sit behind the axle,either side of a 40Litre S/S Petrol Tank.

Holy cows this is an old thread. Updates .Fuck.where to start.

Refusing to work = time to work on truck.30ish days worth.

Cant really remember everything that we accomplished but a semi list is

-Chassis sandblasted. tig'ed/mig'd. DP40's and sprayed Maatt Black. Some suspension components sprayed gloss.

-All 4 doors shaved, bogged and painted, front clip shaved and painted.Cab roof and rear wall painted.

-Engine wise both manifolds were made, intake one polished, exhaust one painted. Intercooler piping made and polished (by me). Oil cooler behind front right wheel and filter relocator mounted to chassis rail and lines run to and fro.Engine pulleys Gold Passivated.

-Battery box made and mounted and polished.Yellow Optima.Battery will go in upside down, terminals at bottom, so if there is a Flat battery I can easily reach under and hook Jumper Leads up..On opposite side an ammo box mounted in its own holder. This will be a tool box. spare fittings, basic tools, jack etc etc.

/cbf's typing anymore.

Oh wait. Shout out to my man Matt at Tin Tricks who did alot of the work / custom Fab. Tin Tricks on FB here (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Tin-Tricks-Ltd/295015217182634)
