Race Retro – 25-27-02-11

I can almost smell March and that means show season is in the offing.  First up was Race Retro; usual format and suspects present as previous years, but it’s always a laugh and a chance to play racing cars.   Massive thanks to the Retro Cars & Retro Ford peoples for the magic (as always).  Here’s some quick un-edited B-roll footage from the weekend, you can check the rest out in the mag.

Home for the weekend: RC & RF stand (Thanks to everyone who came down for a chat!).

This is how we get down…

Project KP30: Relocation Station Part #1

For this summer I wanted to shift the battery into the boot and tidy the bay up generally.  It won’t be a full on wire tuck, but I will be ditching the horn, voltage regulator, some wiring and erm the battery to give a cleaner look and more space to play.

This morning I picked up the cable and connectors I need:

.

I stripped off the exhaust and carbs to change all the gaskets and misab rings.  I also wanted to see if the 4-1 manifold I picked up might fit…it’s not even close so I’ll be sticking to my 4-2-1.

I was really hoping to get more done over the last couple of weeks, but it’s not happened so the car is still in the air (and will be for a few more weeks)

I’ve also secretly been stuffing money down the back of my Sofa and have hopefully saved up enough to fund an LSD.   This will MAKE this car.  Having driven it with a welded diff it was a total animal, so hopefully with the ability to unlock, it will be manageable when parking and a total hang-wagon.  I’ve started making enquiries and have consulted Thomas Delien the font of Toyota knowledge (more on his car soon) and it appears the car has a “U292” diff:

This means (in theory) a 6″ KP61 diff should fit, so if anyone out there has one for sale, any more info on what will fit or any leads as to where I can get one hit me up on the usual channels:
