Default 1989 storm trooper drift build.

Hey a little late i've been too busy working and working on this truck. So i managed to pick up a single cab hardbody with a ka24de, transmission, wiring harness and ecu for $1000 cdn and the guy even threw in a 2 1/2 ton engine crane. Planning on boosting it. Anyways enough about that heres the whip.


The day i bought it


Day after with the back bumper cut off. With a stupid diamond plated tonneau cover that weighs a bazillion pounds.


Interior super gross. Previous owner used it as a work truck.


Engine and tranny going to chuck that clutch and flywheel.

Interior stripped and scrubbed every inch with a tooth brush not to mention i had to take a pry bar and scrape out all the caked on mud under the
carpet

Z24i which has not been maintained very well but im lucky she starts every time

My old truck i sold to my best friend for a daily(black) and the new project.

painted the wheels had some surface rust and put in stock centre cap vs the am ones that stuck out half a foot. turns out they're black rock rims too

4x4 2 piston caliper brake swap and quest monroe rear struts

Sweet found out my tranny bell housing is missing three bolts. Oh well hopefully i get it out soon.

More to come soon

so got some more pics transfered over

Shitty exhaust just going to wait for the swap to get a new one.


All bumper mounts and random metal shit shaved down and rust coated. And on a side note it looks like it was undercoated maybe 5 years ago.

Dual hoist claiming.Got 3 inch blocks in and struts.

sorry for the bad quality

drop spindles, calipers and kyb gr-2 struts

how she sits as of today



oh also forgot i painted the tailgate and got it tinted yesterday 20% on the front windows and limbo brow and rear window. Also redrilling the hangers, cutting the tie rod ends and getting an alignment tomorrow so pumped to have the day off.


JL 5 1/2 door speakers, 6x9s and my friends rockford sub powered by a 650 watt amp not the best but will do for now with the budget i am on. He also gave me a drift net


deck and jdm shift knob (haha)

Wow, nice work so far, lots of little things but it adds up to make something not so nice to something pretty clean.

Ive been lacking this build but i promise some pics tonight. going to pick up a d21 trans,clutch, flywheel, pathy lsd and fenders and maybe some other goodies if the guy will hook me up.

On a side note: whats everyones thoughts on the lsd gear ratio?
HB233 rear axel from auto pathfinder w/ disc brakes Ring gear is 233mms that's 9.25" ish and is factory clutch type LSD. Final drive is 4.6.

I would say it more depends on your final motor choice if you still plan to drift the truck.
